SRH vs MI match preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad

After 2 losses in the first two games, SRH has made an impressive comeback in the last 2 matches by winning them by comfortable margins. Not only they have won those games, but they also did that by batting as well as bowling first. They will be full of confidence and will be wanting to continue their winning streak in the coming game. Harry Brook scored the first century of this season and will hope this is the start of a big season, that SRH is hoping for from him. The bowling still remains their strongest suit and will fancy their chances playing at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Probable IX: Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram(c), Abhishek Sharma, Heinrich Klaasen(w), Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Umran Malik, T Natarajan

Mumbai Indians

2 consecutive victories for the Mumbai Indians, will do a world of good for them after the 2 consecutive losses in the opening games. They have been quite dominant in both of those victories and will want to continue that form. However, they have won both games chasing the score and have lost both games when they had to set a target. Saying that, Mumbai Indians will not be concerned how the wins come in, as long as they are coming. The return of form for Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan will be a huge boost.

Probable IX: Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan(w), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Hrithik Shokeen, Riley Meredith, Arshad Khan, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is one of the high-scoring grounds in this season's IPL. A batting wicket that stays true throughout both innings, this pitch is guaranteed to serve us with some high-scoring thrillers. 

It will be hot and humid but will get cooler as the match progresses. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 39°C – 26°C range.

KKR vs SRH Dream11 prediction

Dream11 prediction for this match:

  • Wicket-keeper(s): Ishan Kishan
  • Batter(s): Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, Mayank Agarwal, Aiden Markram, Harry Brook
  • All-rounder(s): Washington Sunder
  • Bowler(s): T Natrajan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Jason Behrendorff
  • Recommended captain: Mayank Agarwal
  • Recommended vice-captain: Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium will be a batting paradise and the top-order batsmen will be raring to go on that batting track. 

We feel that SRH will dominate this match with both bat and ball. The bounce is true and the pitch might get slower later in the tournament. We expect some high scores from all batsmen involved.

We would recommend having Mayank Agarwal as your Captain, he might not be in the best of touches but players of his class need just one good inning to get back into form. We would also recommend Bhuvneshwar as your Vice-captain, given his exploits in picking wickets at the top and also chipping in with a few in the death over, he is an asset you must have.

Match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win 

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have a habit to slip under the radar quite a few times and accumulate mighty impressive wins. With Mumbai Indians still figuring out their best 11 among injury concerns, added to their inconsistent batting, SRH will fancy their chances to come away with a victory in this game.

Toss prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the toss and bowl first. 

We feel that SRH will win the toss and opt to bowl first. The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium pitch will remain true for both innings. With the possibility of dew, the chasing team is at a slight advantage. 

Man of the match prediction: Mayank Agarwal

Mayank Agarwal has emerged to be one of the most dependable batsmen in the Indian Premier League in recent years. What has been a lean season so far, he will want to change that around and will look forward to this game against Mumbai Indians to do so.

Betting odds

Sunrisers Hyderabad are placed at 1.80 and Mumbai Indians at 2.10. Sunrisers Hyderabad comes in as favorites as they play at home.
