SRH vs MI – Match Preview
SRH take on MI with the hosts struggling at the bottom of the table. The game between KKR and RR will also have a significant say on the outcome of this game, as MI are directly competing with KKR for a good play-off position. SRH have been poor throughout the season and MI would actually prefer to play against this opponent than one of the top guns.
SRH vs MI – Predicted Playing XIs
SRH have been a disaster throughout the 2021 IPL season. The team looks weak in almost every regard and they will be playing for pride in this game. Even then, the likes of David Warner will be keen on putting up a good show before bowing out of the tournament. The SRH vs MI prediction expects a very tight encounter due to the dip in form experienced by MI.
MI were able to significantly enhance the net run rate following the big win over RR. The play-off hopes for MI still are kept alive, but the team would be kicking themselves for being in this position despite having one of the strongest squads in IPL 2021. The defending champions are still capable of springing up a surprise in the latter stages.

SRH vs MI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
MI have a potent batting line-up that can destroy opposition at will. So far, the bowling surfaces in UAE have not helped post huge totals. Even then, MI have a great chance of coming up with more runs than SRH in the first six overs thanks to a top order that features players like Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan.
SRH might have picked up a narrow victory over RCB but this is a MI team which has a lot to play for in this match. At the other end, SRH will only be concerned about going out on a high. It may be difficult for SRH to repeat the heroics from the game against RCB.
This is all about MI’s incredible hitting potential which is quite iconic. There are big hitters in the MI batting order through to number six or seven. This provides a perfect potential for MI to unleash going into the play-offs. Even though the pitch may not be a great surface for batsman, MI should be able to clear the boundaries with ease.
