MI vs SRH match preview

Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be up against each other in the 55th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the contest.

SRH, led by Pat Cummins, have fetched 12 points and a net run rate of +0.072 thanks to wins in 6 out of 10 matches. MI, on the other hand, are languishing at ninth in the table and are one loss away from getting knocked out of the tournament.

In their previous meeting back in March where 523 runs were scored, SRH beat Mumbai by 31 runs. After putting up a huge score of 277 for 3 on the board, the home team restricted MI to 246 for 5. Abhishek Sharma won the Player of the Match award for scoring 63 runs off 23 balls.

The MI vs SRH prediction is expected to be a one-sided affair because of the form both teams have been in.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians are in dire straits. Although there is a mathematical chance of qualifying for the playoffs, they are remote to say the least. MI will go into their next game after losing to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 24 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. 

Suryakumar Yadav scored a brisk fifty, but MI were bowled out for 145 in 18.5 overs while chasing 169. 

The MI vs SRH prediction will depend on how Hardik Pandya manages to lift his team from the slump. Hardik Pandya has looked out of sorts, both as an all-rounder and skipper. 

Mumbai Indians Possible 11: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Mohammad Nabi, Piyush Chawla, Luke Wood, Jasprit Bumrah, Nuwan Thushara

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers would consider themselves lucky after they somehow managed to beat Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 1 run on Thursday. Travis Head and Nitish Reddy starred for them in the batting department after they scored 58 and 76 respectively. Heinrich Klaasen’s unbeaten 19-ball 42 took them past the 200-run mark.

Thereafter, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a brilliant spell of 4-0-41-3 as SRH crawled past the finish line. Skipper Pat Cummins and left-armer T Natarajan also accounted for 2 scalps apiece.

The outcome of the MI vs SRH prediction will depend on how SRH manage to continue playing their aggressive brand of cricket.

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

There is no chance of rain as of now in Mumbai. There will be a cloud cover of 11 percent, but they will not be threatening. Temperatures will be around 28 degrees Celsius. Wind gusts of 35 km/h will make life easy for the players.

IPL 2024 Qualification Scenario

MI vs SRH match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win

As per the MI vs SRH match prediction, SRH will go into the match against the favourites. Although they have been struggling a wee bit, they should be able to topple MI, who are yet to find any momentum in the tournament until now.

MI vs SRH toss prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the toss and field first

As per the MI vs SRH toss prediction, teams should opt to bat first after winning the toss. The Sunrisers have had most of their success while batting first and hence, they should not change their tactics.

Player of the Match prediction: Travis Head

Travis Head has an excellent run with the bat in hand and hence, will be one of the contenders to win the Player of the Match award. He scored an 18-ball fifty the last time SRH faced MI. After scoring a half-century against RR, he returned to form. The likes of Heinrich Klaasen and Abhishek Sharma are also in good enough form to win the award.
