SRH vs MI: Who will win?

The second doubleheader of IPL 2020 starts on 04th October with the high voltage clash between the Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians and David Warner led Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH is coming off a win against Chennai Super Kings and they have almost sorted their visible weaknesses. But an injury to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the strength of the opposition is expected to shift the advantage in favour of the defending champions Mumbai Indians. MI has all those ingredients to outcast their counterparts from Hyderabad in the smaller Sharjah ground. So if you are in for IPL betting, place your money on MI.

Strength

Mumbai Indians:

  • A highly potent top-order batting which has a blend of youth and experience.
  • A strong middle order with power-packed finishers.
  • All their three pacers have been pretty good in the early part of the innings.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • The best opening pair among 8 teams. Record of Warner-Bairstow speaks for themselves.
  • With Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Priyam Garg finding form, they have almost strengthened middle order.
  • Rashid Khan and T.Natarajan are in great form with the ball.

Weakness

Mumbai Indians:

  • The spin department of Mumbai looks weak compared to the rest of the teams in IPL 2020.
  • Death bowling is a huge worry for MI, despite having Bumrah and Boult in their armoury, they have been pretty ordinary in that front.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Young Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad are their fifth and sixth bowling option. Even though they bowled well in the last match, it can be a weak link against an experienced opposition like MI. Opposition teams are expected to target these four overs.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is injured, if he is not fit, then the fast bowling department looks weak.

Win Prediction

  • MI-55%
  • SRH-45%

SRH VS MI MATCH PREDICTION

The entertainment venue of IPL 2020 is ready to host yet another high voltage match. This time it is between the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH who failed miserably in the first two matches got back to winning ways in its last two encounters. But with Bhuvneshwar Kumar injured and with the ground dimensions being less, Mumbai Indians who have a more attacking batting line-up are expected to come ahead of them. Sandeep Sharma or Basil Thampi may replace Bhuvi in the eleven. Mumbai is once again expected to trust their strong eleven in the smaller Sharjah ground. No changes are expected in their eleven.

MI Playing 11: Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah

SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natrajan

  1. Kieron Pollard is in fine form with the bat. With Hardik Pandya not fit to bowl, expect him to bowl a few overs as well. He should be a sure-shot choice in your fantasy teams.
  2. Boom Boom Bumrah has got back to his absolute best. Bet on him to deliver as always.
  3. SRH pacer T.Natarajan showed great promise in the last few matches that he played. To add to that, he is the only pacer so far in this edition of the IPL, who has been able to nail Yorkers consistently.
  4. SRH captain David Warner’s overall IPL consistency is tough to look beyond. He along with Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson holds the key to SRH’s chances.

SRH vs CSK Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

Sharjah pitch is a graveyard for bowlers. With a flat road like pitch at the disposal, anything less than 200 may seem below par in this ground. And looking purely at the stats, most teams who have batted first have gone onto win matches in Sharjah.

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 190-200

If Mumbai Indians bats first: 210-220
