SRH vs MI IPL 2024 Match 8 Match-Ups

Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Mumbai Indians in the eighth game of the IPL 2024 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Wednesday.

Both sides lost their opening games, with MI making a blunder while chasing the target of 169 runs, losing by 6 runs, and continuing their unwanted streak of losing opening games straight for 12 matches since 2013. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad were chasing a mammoth total of 209 runs against KKR and were in the game before Harshit Rana silenced their hopes, resulting in a 4-run loss.

As both sides look to get back to winning ways, let’s take a look at five interesting matchups to keep an eye on in SRH vs MI.

  1. Ishan Kishan vs Pat Cummins

Ishan has been searching for runs after registering a 4-ball duck against GT. However, things will not be easy for the left-handed batter who has to face Cummins in the early overs, as Cummins has dismissed him four times after conceding only 22 runs.

2. Rohit Sharma vs Washington Sundar

SRH might use Sundar early as an impact player against in-form Rohit, as the right-arm off-break bowler has dismissed him thrice after conceding 38 runs off 31 balls.

3. Hardik Pandya vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Pandya is yet to make an impact as MI skipper after failing to finish the game with the bat against GT in the first game. Meanwhile, he needs to be cautious against Bhuvneshwar, who has gotten him out two times in just 18 deliveries.

4. Mayank Agarwal vs Jasprit Bumrah

Bumrah has an appealing match-up against Mayank, as the right-handed batter has struggled against him, being dismissed three times after scoring only 11 runs off 16 balls. It will be interesting to see how he does against the in-form pacer who will challenge him early in the powerplay.

5. Rahul Tripathi vs Piyush Chawla
