SRH vs MI Dream11 Prediction: We are onto the final league match of the ongoing Indian Premier League Season 13 where defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the high-scoring Sharjah. Such has been the level of competition in the cash-rich league that we are still not sure about the other two teams who will make it to the playoffs. For SRH, the situation is simple – win the match and make it to the playoffs, with two points they will join Kolkata Knight Riders who have 14 points but SRH’s run-rate (+0.55) is better than KKR (-0.21) or for that matter better than all the other teams except for Mumbai. For MI it will serve as a practice match before the all-important Qualifier 1 as they have already made a place there. The last time these two teams met the venue was Sharjah, and we saw a high-scoring match where MI batted first and posted a mammoth 208/5 and SRH fell short by 34 runs. We have already seen the resurgence of Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals meet a tame end, whether SRH meets the same fate or they are able to deny it remains to be seen.
SRH vs MI Prediction, Today IPL Match Details
Indian Premier League Season 13
Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
Date – Tuesday, 03 November 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Pitch Report: The pitch in Sharjah started as the friendliest one for the batsmen and will end the same way. The short boundaries give batsmen the confidence that they can clear it with a mishit too and that takes the pitch factor out. Team winning the toss is likely to bowl first as dew factor makes batting in the second-half much easier and for team batting first a minimum they will be look at is 180 in MI vs SRH Today Match Prediction.
MI Team News: Hardik Pandya missed their last game and was replaced by Jayant Yadav who returned with decent figures of (0/18) in 3 overs and Mumbai management is likely to give Hardik more time to recover before the big qualifier. Their pace battery has been wonderful and MI would be careful not to toy with the momentum they have got.
SRH Team News: Sunrisers were clinical in their last match against RCB and they are likely to go with the same eleven as one of the biggest questions was answered in the win. SRH took a bit of a risk excluding one of their top-scorers Jonny Bairstow from the last two games but seeing all-rounder Jason Holder coming good (10-ball 26*) would have given them a lot of joy. There is no latest news on Vijay Shankar but if he gets fit, he will replace Abhishek Sharma. Let’s have a look at MI vs SRH Dream11 Team.

Vijay Shankar/Abhishek Sharma
Quinton de Kock: The South African wicket-keeper batsman has been phenomenal for Mumbai Indians both with the bat and behind the stumps. De Kock has 418 runs in the tournament at a strike-rate of 135 and scored a brilliant 39-ball 67 the last time these two teams met. He strikes the ball cleanly and is equally dangerous against both spin and fast bowling. SRH will have to get past him if they have to win.
David Warner: Captain Warner failed in the chase against RCB getting out for 8 but that had little effect as they were chasing a very small total. Warner has once again been good in the competition and has 444 runs at an average of 37 and strike rate of 135. He was good against the Mumbai bowling attack the last time he faced them scoring 44-ball 60.
Suryakumar Yadav: It was surprising for everyone who is following IPL to see Indian selectors ignore SKY from the Indian T20 team that they picked for Australia as he has been wonderful scoring 374 important runs at No. 3 with a brilliant strike-rate of 153. Suryakumar is one of the key reasons for Mumbai’s success and his hunger for runs make him deadly.
Kane Williamson: It is a do-or-die game for SRH and Williamson is made for games like these. He has been one of the best batters in the game across all three formats and has done well in the opportunities he has got for SRH this season (9 matches, 200 runs at a strike-rate of 135). Mumbai have a very good bowling attack and Williamson has the technique to match them.
X-Factors, Differential Picks
Jasprit Bumrah: He has finally snatched the Purple Cap from Kagiso Rabada, who has been donning it from the first week. Though, Bumrah and Rabada are tied at 23 wickets, it is the economy rate that has won him the bragging rights. Bumrah has been sensational for Mumbai terrorizing the batsmen with his Yorkers and Bouncers and we expect more of them in this contest.
Rashid Khan: Rashid may not have the wickets that Bumrah has but Rashid is as important to Sunrisers as Bumrah is for Mumbai. The Afghan spinner has been phenomenal with his economy rate of only 5.07 and he has taken 18 wickets. SRH need him to come good for them to have any chance of downing Mighty Mumbai and make it to the playoffs.
