MI vs SRH Dream11 Prediction: The points table standings are changing after every game as teams look to consolidate their positions in the top half of the table. In pursue of that, defending champions Mumbai Indians will host Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sharjah today. This will be an afternoon match but still plenty of runs are expected looking at the reputation of this ground. We will preview MI vs SRH Dream11 contest.
Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab comfortably in the last match. After losing Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav early, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan came together to rescue the innings for MI. Ishan Kishan struggled all throughout his innings but Rohit Sharma was at his usual best. Rohit Sharma made 70 but after that Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya put on a six-hitting masterclass in last 4 overs to take the total to 191 runs. In reply, bowlers didn’t give any chances to KXIP to chase that score down. James Pattinson, Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar picked up two wickets each as Mumbai Indians registered two points in style.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are also coming off from a win in their last match against Chennai Super Kings. Batting first, Jonny Bairstow went for a duck before David Warner and Manish Pandey jolted a recovery of some substance for the second wicket. But soon after, they lost 3 big guns in quick succession, which left Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma in the middle. This young pair proved their potential with a partnership of 77 runs in quick time between them. Priyam Garg was particularly punishing with his 26-ball-51 as SRH put 164 on the board. In bowling, SRH bowlers started economically in the powerplay and as pressure built, CSK lost 4 wickets cheaply. The target was always going to be out of reach for CSK as T Natarajan picked up a couple against his name. But Rashid Khan was the star performer with the figures of 4-0-12-0.
In head-to-head comparisons, Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad have been equals against each other in the past. Both teams have won 7 matches each from 14 games played between them. Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a lead of 3-2 over Mumbai Indians in the last 5 matches. SRH won the match last time when both teams met in UAE during 2014 season.
The same pitch will be in use from Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders encounter last night. The surface looked like a usual Sharjah wicket with ball coming on to the bat very nicely. Yes, it may get slower today due to an afternoon match but with short boundaries, we can still expect a run-feast between these two teams.
