Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians
Indian Premier League 2020, Match 56
Date & Time: 03 November, 2020 at 7:30PM IST
Sharjah Cricket Stadium, UAE


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 lead pacers have been pretty good in the early part of the innings.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Dynamic opening duo. The combo of Warner and Saha seems to work well.
  • With Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Abhishek Sharma, they have almost strengthened the middle order.
  • Rashid Khan and T.Natarajan are in great form with the ball.
  • The addition of Jason Holder has provided much-needed stability to the SRH side.


Mumbai Indians:

  • The spin department of Mumbai looks weak compared to the rest of the teams in IPL 2020.
  • With MI already qualified, they may look to rest their main pacers. In that case, the replacements may not match with the quality required to test the strong SRH top order.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • SRH does not have a proper sixth bowling option.
  • The form of David Warner is a slight concern. He is nowhere near his absolute best.

MI has nothing to lose from this match and hence they are expected to rest the majority of their star players. The opener Quinton De Kock may be rested and Ishan Kishan is expected to don the gloves for this match. Chris Lynn is expected to open the innings with Kishan.

Expert free tip for SRH vs MI Dream11 and IPL betting tips

  • SRH captain David Warner’s overall IPL consistency is tough to look beyond.
  • With Holder proving his worth with the bat in the last match, he is expected to be promoted when the required rates are high. His expertise with the ball added with this makes him a non-removable player from any fantasy squads.
  • Rashid Khan is a no brainer. He should definitely feature in all your fantasy teams. He can also be your captain or vice-captain choice.
  • With almost all main MI players likely to be rested expect complete long innings from Surya Kumar Yadav and Kieron Pollard.
  • Mitchell McClenaghan is a consistent IPL performer. With him most likely to replace Trent Boult in this match, he is expected to prove his worth once again with a match-winning performance.
  • Chris Lynn is expected to play his first game for Mumbai Indians. With no pressure and full freedom at hand, expect a complete Lynnsanity.

SRH vs MI Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

Sharjah’s pitch unlike its usual stature has slowed down remarkably well. Hence the earlier model of posting a big total by batting first may not work in Sharjah anymore. So it would be better to chase in this pitch and spinners are expected to have a huge role in deciding the fate of the match even with short boundaries in place.

Predicted Score:

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 170-180
If Mumbai Indians bats first: 160-170
