MI vs SRH Match Prediction - May 17, 2022

The Mumbai Indians and the Sunrisers Hyderabad are going to be playing against each other in this next IPL 2022 match. Both teams have had a horrendous time during the season. The Mumbai Indians have lost more matches than in any other season and the Sunrisers have just completed dropped off a cliff.

We expect changes to be made in both teams as they look forward to the next season because their chances of making the playoff this year are non-existentent. From a betting point of view, this can be a tricky situation because you are not sure of how these changes will affect the strength of the team.

The odds being offered by the IPL betting sites are quite similar for both teams.

MI vs SRH Team Previews

Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians are signing youngsters and giving them a go in this season of the IPL. Clearly, they see this now as a chance to build for the future since there is nothing much to gain from this season anyway hence we must stop assuming that they will be playing their strongest 11.

The Mumbai Indians have not batted well for the majority of the season as is pretty obvious by the results. Perhaps the one outlier to this has been Tilak Varma who has shown himself to be capable against all kinds of bowling and to be able to accelerate in the middle overs for his team.

He is the one batsman that we would back to score runs in this match as well. The question mark over Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma at the top of the order just fails to be resolved. If you do have to bet on them for anything it should be to score a six.

Jasprit Bumrah has shown signs of getting back to his best with the ball and that is a very positive sign for the Mumbai Indians. Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith are the other two overseas players that have given some teeth to the Mumbai bowling. The two spin options though remain quite underwhelming and we don't see an easy way for Mumbai to address that in this match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers continue to baffle as their season of two halves frustrates their fans and supporters. 5 victories in a row during the first half of the season put them in an excellent place to make a run for the playoff places but a run of five consecutive defeats has now all but ended their chances of making the playoff.

One of the main reasons for this lack of success has to be the performance of Kane Williamson. If you just look at the batting impact statistically speaking that he has had the season then it is the worst for any better in any season of the IPL.

It does not help Hyderabad that he is also their captain and does cannot be dropped from the team. There have been some rumors that Williamson will not play these final couple of matches and instead make way for someone else.

Hyderabad's biggest strength is its strong middle order where Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, and Rahul Tripathi have been excellent with the bat and been able to score at a very fast pace.

Unfortunately for them, everything else around them seems to be crumbling.

A strong bowling lineup led by the hugely impressive Umran Malik gives Hyderabad a chance to make some dents in the Mumbai Indians batting but Mumbai is a team that plays high place very well. Bhuvaneswar Kumar Marco Janson and Washington Sundar will all have to step up to avoid conceding too many runs.

MI vs SRH Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The pitches are slowing up and offering spin making batting in the second inning a lot more difficult.

The team that bats first should be seen as having a big advantage.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch is expected to be good for batting in the first half of the match but it will take some spin and be slow in nature. The boundaries are not the longest and give the batsmen opportunities to clear them at any stage but as we have seen, getting those big overs at the end of the inning is going to be tough especially if there is no set batsman at the crease.

This makes taking advantage of the new ball very important. Something around 160 should be seen as par.

MI vs SRH Betting Tips

We think pitches that offer a little bit of spin could help the Mumbai Indians as even their mediocre spinners will be more difficult to face.

Also, the Mumbai Indians tend to give fewer runs away than the Sunrisers. A new captain and a change at the top in terms of the batting could make things a bit more difficult for the Sunrisers.

Bet on the Mumbai Indians to win.
