Indian T20 League 2022: Mumbai vs Hyderabad Fantasy Cricket Match-Ups

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan May 16, 2022

Mumbai will meet playoff aspirants Hyderabad at Wankhede Stadium in match 65 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The hosts, who have won three of their last four games, must pick up maximum points to avoid finishing bottom of the points table.

Hyderabad, on the other hand, will be keen to snap a five-game losing streak which has significantly affected their chances of finishing in the top four. With two games remaining in their season, even back-to-back wins may not be enough for them to seal a playoff spot. 

We pick five exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Mumbai-Hyderabad match. 



Mumbai pacer Daniel Sams has improved as the season progressed. He wreaked havoc in the powerplay against Chennai last week, claiming the wickets of Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Aiden Markram took his season tally to 350 after a knock of 32 in the defeat against Kolkata. However, the South African batter is unlikely to win the Match-Up against the Aussie.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

D Sams - 43.44; A Markram - 46.50



Rahul Tripathi squares off against his teammate Thangarasu Natarajan. The Hyderabad batter had hit a fifty - 58 off 37 balls - in Hyderabad's latest outing at Wankhede Stadium. Left-arm fast bowler Natarajan is the franchise's joint-leading wicket-taker with 18 wickets in ten outings. He could bag more fantasy points than Tripathi against Mumbai.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

R Tripathi - 40.58; T Natarajan - 48.80



Jasprit Bumrah is up against young pace sensation Umran Malik. Both players have had a contrasting season so far. Bumrah has picked up just 11 wickets, while the 22-year-old, who grabbed 3/33 against Kolkata on Saturday, leads the charts for uncapped players in the 15th edition with 18 scalps. Malik is likely to win the Match-Up against the Mumbai fast bowler.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

J Bumrah - 30.58; U Malik - 45.83



Tilak Varma played a match-winning 34* in the low-scoring affair against Chennai. The 19-year-old has registered more than 50 fantasy points in two matches at Wankhede Stadium this season. On the other hand, Nicholas Pooran, who made 263 runs at an average of 43.83, has been unlucky this season as his both half-centuries went in vain. Tilak is likely to beat the wicket-keeper batter in this Match-Up.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

T Varma - 47.91; N Pooran - 39.25
