MI vs SRH Dream11 Tips for 9th Match IPL Today Match Prediction 17 April


Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Dream11: It’s just the start of the tournament, but things are really not looking good for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, especially the middle order. The Orange Army has faced defeats in both their starting games, courtesy middle order’s lack of run and ability to finish off games. In both games, they bowled well restricting the opposition at a par score, got to a commanding position but then it all went downhill.

Sunrisers Hyderabad will continue to miss Kane Williamson when they square off against defending champions Mumbai Indians on Saturday night at Chepauk. It will be interesting to watch what changes they undergo to avert their third successive loss this season. Will it be shuffling the batting order? Will they bring experienced all-rounder Kedar Jadhav in the place of W Saha as they already J Bairstow who can keep and open the innings with D Warner? A lot needs to be figured out in the Orange Army camp.

The defending champions would be high on confidence after snatching a win off the jaws of Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous outing. Their bowling has been excellent in the two games so far – stretching the game to the last ball in the season opener against RCB and making a sensational comeback against KKR, especially by the spinners, and winning it by 10 runs. However, Mumbai Indians too need to address a few things. Their death overs batting at Chepuak, where there’s a lack of pace in the wicket, isn’t clicking. Barring SKY, all other batters, be it hard-hitting Hardik Pandya, power-hitter Kieron Pollard, have struggled to come in terms of the lack of pace of the wicket.

Let’s see who takes an edge in this game. Moreover, a cracker of a game is expected to take place at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai tonight. The clash will begin at 07:30 PM IST.
