Mumbai Indians to win the match
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
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.

If Mumbai Indians bats first: 210-220
