The last league match of IPL 2020 will occur between the Mumbai Indians and the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The Orange Army need just two points to set up a clash against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator, and David Warner's men will try to give all they have to stay alive in the competition.

The Kolkata Knight Riders will closely follow this contest because their fortunes are in the hands of MI and SRH. A win for MI will guarantee the Knight Riders a place in the top 4.
