Match Predictions

Mumbai Indians (MI) have historically been slow starters. The last couple of years were an exception but prior to that, the Rohit Sharma-led side always tend to start slowly but really take off as the season progresses. This season has started in a similar fashion.

They won three out of their first five games and now, they seem to be back on track. The middle-order has been a worry for them this season. The sluggish tracks in Chennai didn’t help their cause either and they have shown promise once they landed in Delhi. Kieron Pollard has looked good, Krunal Pandya has got a decent score and now, it’s just Hardik Pandya who hasn’t really fired. Quinton de Kock’s return to form should please MI as well. The bowling has always been pegging away consistently and won MI a couple of games from almost nowhere. Thus, MI are starting to look threatening and the five-time champions will be looking to build some momentum.

SRH looked clueless at moment. Nothing seems to be going right for them. The bowling hasn’t fired and it the big reliance on Rashid Khan is evident. In the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan, the pace attack has struggled and they have leaked a lot of runs as well. The middle-order muddle seems to have no end and it’s a problem that SRH have had for a few years now. David Warner hasn’t looked at his best. Thus, with five losses from six games, SRH need to turn things around quickly and it needs to happen now.

SRH face a side they have a decent record against. Overall, SRH have won eight games while MI have won nine. Earlier this season, SRH fluffed a huge opportunity to beat MI as they fell 13 runs short while chasing 151.

Team Previews

SRH have made a quite a few changes this season and they have used as many as 21 players already. They could make a couple more changes. If Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit, he will slot back into the side and replace Sandeep Sharma. Abdul Samad has also been struggling with his fitness and hence, if he is 100% fit, he might come back into the playing XI as well. MI are unlikely to tweak their winning combination. They are not a side that likes making too many changes and it is usually an odd change here and there.

SRH vs MI Betting Summary

SRH are one of the few sides who have competed hard and have taken the attack to MI in the last few years. The Hyderabad side have an almost neck and neck record against MI. The overall head-to-head record reads 9-8 in favour of MI after Rohit Sharma and co-beat SRH earlier this year. 2016 and 2018 were the best years for SRH and hence, they beat MI in both the league encounters that year. MI have clean swept SRH twice as well (2015 and 2019).
