Mumbai Indians are up against Sunrisers Hyderabad in match no. of 65 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Rohit Sharma-led MI head into the match on the back of three wins in the last four games, including a massive 5-wicket victory over Chennai Super Kings in their previous match.

Since 2018, Rohit has scored only 108 runs in 8 matches against SRH at an average of 13.50 and strike rate of 110.20. Meanwhile, Williamson also needs to revive his form in the current season and also end his streak of low scores against MI. Williamson has scored only 43 runs in 5 games, at an average of 8.60 and strike rate of 102.38.
Rohit Sharma win the toss and Mumbai Indians elect to field first.
