mi vs srh Match Prediction & Analysis

IPL2021 is played across two venues currently in Mumbai & Chennai. Mumbai pitch has been a graveyard for the bowlers but they are enjoying bowling on the slower surfaces of Chennai. IPL2021 witnessed two back-to-back chokeholds from the defending team in last 2 games to win the matches comfortably. Mumbai Indians came back strongly against KKR to defend their total successfully while SRH fluffed their chase in the chase against RCB from position of strength in their last encounter at this same venue. Mumbai Indians will be high on confidence from their victory last night while SRH will look to make some changes to strengthen their team.

Teams Preview

Mumbai Indians Preview

Surya Kumar Yadav (56 runs) and Rohit Sharma (42 runs) led the MI`s charge with the bat as they shared a 76-run partnership last night. Their middle order failed to make a big contribution as they collapsed from 86/1 to 152/9 in their 20 overs. Kieron Pollard, and Pandya brothers are due for the big one this season.

Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult were excellent with the ball as they bowled the crucial overs in the powerplay and death and never gave any easy runs. Spinners Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya stoke the show last night with a combined bowling figures of 8-0-41-5 in the match.

Top Players to Bet on:

Surya Kumar Yadav – SKY has been phenomenal with the bat scoring 31 & 56 in 2 matches at a good strike rate. He is providing the needed impetus or surge to the scoring rate in the middle overs.

Krunal Pandya – Krunal has become an excellent multi utility player who can contribute with bat and ball. Last night he scored a quickfire 9-ball 15 runs & had bowling figures of 4-0-13-1 in the match. We expect him to enjoy bowling on this track in this match too. 

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Marco Jansen/Jimmy Neesham, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

SRH ended up on the losing side for the second consecutive time despite having a good partnership in the top order. David Warner, Manish Pandey, and Johnny Bairstow have scored runs for their team with half-centuries. They will bring back Kane Williamson in the middle order in these slow tracks.

Rashid Khan has been their star performer with the ball in both matches. T Natarajan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar are the preferred pace bowlers for SRH. Jason Holder picked up 3 wickets but might miss out playing in this match owing to the team selection issues. Abhishek Sharma might come in as a spin bowling all-rounder in his game.

Top Players to Bet on:

Manish Pandey – Pandey leads their batting charge with 61 & 38 in the wo matches but his strike rate has been a subject of concern for their team this year. We expect him to play a quick-fire knock in this game.

Rashid Khan – Rashid has bowling figures of 2/18 & 2/24 in the two matches played so far and he might be a tough bowler to face in the Chennai pitches. He also scored a superb cameo late in the innings last night in a stiff chase.  

Sunrisers Hyderabad Predicted Playing XI:

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), David Warner (c), Manish Pandey, Jonny Bairstow, Abhishek Sharma,  Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed/Siddharth Kaul

Weather Conditions

Chennai has a slightly unusual cool and breezy climate in the April month and both teams will be delighted with the temperatures in the range of early 20s on the match day.

Venue Details

Chepauk pitch is on the slower side and will be tricker surface for the batsmen to go bang bang from the start. They can score runs only if they can manage the adjust to the pitch conditions. We expect the scores to be around 150-160 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bat

Chennai is challenging the chasing norm in the T20 matches as the pitch slows down considerably in the second innings. Chasing has been a tough in the final 5-6 overs of the game and are choking under pressure. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.

MI vs SRH Winning Prediction

Mumbai Indians bowling has been arguably the strongest among the IPL teams with 4 experienced quality bowlers. SRH lack a reliable 4th & 5th bowling options and rely heavily on the likes of Bhuvi, Rashid and Natarajan. MI easily pips the SRH in the batting department especially with the firepower and quality in the lower middle order. SRH needs their top order to win this match. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match and hand third straight defeat to SRH in this season. 

MUMBAI INDIANS WILL WIN THE MATCH
