Both Mumbai and Hyderabad have produced some closely fought contests over the years. In 16 matches between these teams, both have won 8 games each. Last year too, MI and SRH won a game each which shows how tight the games have been between these two fantastic sides. After getting their opening win over KKR, Mumbai will be confident going into this game.

Mumbai’s batting order looks solid with two quality international players leading the way at the top. With Suryakumar Yadav continuing his good form, the middle order looks settled too. Rahul Chahar’s performance in the last match was a big positive for MI before Bumrah and Boult took over. The performance reflected their bowling depth.
