Expert free tip for SRH vs MI Dream11 and IPL betting tips
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.
If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 170-180
If Mumbai Indians bats first: 160-170
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.

Surya is in terrific form with the bat. He is one of the top run-getters for MI this season. With the main players likely to be rested and with short boundaries at stake, expect him to make maximum use of this opportunity.
