Indian T20 League 2021: Preview of matchweek 6
Sportsbet.io provides a consolidated brief preview of all the matches that make up matchweek 6 of Indian T20 League 2021.
The upcoming matchweek will perhaps be one of the exhilarating schedules so far, considering there will be back-to-back double-headers this week. Additionally, a couple of games are expected to be postponed with the news of players from the Kolkata camp testing positive.
Here we preview games of 31-33 of Indian T20 League 2021.
MATCH 31: Hyderabad vs Mumbai
Hyderabad have been good performers against Mumbai and have almost an equal record against them. However, their current form suggests that they have a lot of work to do to beat the five-time Indian T20 League champions. Mumbai lead 9-8 in a total of 17 matches played between them so far and have won both their matches chasing at the Arun Jaitley Stadium so far after winning the toss. Hence, the odds favour a Mumbai win.
MATCH 32: Rajasthan vs Chennai
Rajasthan continued to tinker with their batting lineup in the previous match, but it enabled Jos Buttler to register his maiden century. However, against a Chennai team that has 15 wins, the chances of Sanju Samson and Co. picking up a positive result is seemingly glim.
MATCH 33: Bangalore vs Punjab
High-flying Bangalore will look to avenge their 34-run loss to Punjab when the teams reconvene for the reverse fixture. It was just the second loss of the 2021 campaign for Virat Kohli and Co. and they will seek a win to keep pressure on Delhi who sit two points clear at the top of the points table.
