SRH vs MI Match Prediction - Apr 06, 2019

With two equal teams set to clash in the ongoing Indian Premier League, it will indeed be a clash of the Titans when Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians take on each other at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday, 6th April. Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming off an impressive away win against the Delhi Daredevils and likewise, Mumbai Indians ran past Chennai Super Kings in a rather one-sided affair at Wankhede Stadium. Both the sides have a win and therefore the momentum behind them and we expect them to come out all guns blazing in the upcoming fixture.

SRH vs MI Team Previews

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Without a doubt, the Sunrisers Hyderabad will enjoy the advantage of playing in the home conditions and in front of their home crowd. Historically, they've been difficult to beat at home which has largely been due to their terrific bowling attack, but now with their batting firing as well, they appear to be playing at another level.

They are currently leading the pack with three wins in four matches with an extraordinary net run-rate of 1.78. Much of their strong performance's credit goes to their opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner. In the four completed matches, they have put on three century-plus stands and one fifty-plus stand and on no occasion have they lost a wicket inside the powerplay. Their strong start at the top has allowed the likes of Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, and Mohammad Nabi to come in and get on with the business right away.

Although the orange army's bowling is not as good as it was back in 2018, it is still doing decently enough nonetheless. Bhuvneshwar Kumar looked like coming back into the rhythm after having a few colorless outings. Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul play a perfect second-fiddle to him and with a wide array of bowling options available to bowl at any stage of the game in Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Vijay Shankar, their bowling appears to be covering all dimensions.

Kane Williamson is still uncertain to play in the upcoming encounter and if he is fit, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be in a sweet problem to pick the perfect combination, as far as their overseas contingent is concerned. All in all, the Sunrisers have a pretty good lineup on paper and they're producing results on the field as well. They will certainly be a tough contender in the upcoming home match.

David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, V Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, YK Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, S Sharma, Siddarth Kaul.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians dropped Mitchell McClenaghan and picked up Jason Behrendorff and even though it was not a like-for-like replacement, it did produce results. With Behrendorff back, Mumbai Indians' bowling attack does gets stronger, but the absence of the experienced Lasith Malinga could hurt them.

One thing which has been prominent in Mumbai Indians' lineup over the years is the presence of all-rounders who are capable to change the game at any moment. This time they enjoy the services of Pandya brothers who both turned the last game into their favor after the Indians found themselves in a spot of bother. Hardik Pandya first provided their innings first with the much-needed and then bowled beautifully in the middle overs to rock Chennai Super Kings.

Even though Pollard didn't end up scoring too many runs, his brief cameo at the backend of the innings was more than useful. The only concern for the Mumbai Indians will be the fact their skipper is yet to convert a start into a big innings. However, with in-form Quinton de Kock scoring briskly at the top, he can afford to take his time and accelerate after getting set.

All in all, Mumbai Indians may be languishing in the bottom half of the table, but that doesn't really tell the complete picture. They are just a win away from making into the top-four which they'll be looking to get at Uppal. They have a batting lineup that goes deep and with match-winners available right through in their lineup, they are capable to turn any game around at any stage.

Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, SA Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph, JJ Bumrah.

SRH vs MI Toss Prediction

Pitch and Conditions

Surface generally here tends to be a paradise for the batsmen. Also, in these months days are hot and a nice breeze flows across the ground in the evening. The ball might do a thing or two in the evening, but otherwise, it will be an excellent surface. Considering the kind of scores racked in the first few matches here, the team batting first will be disappointed if they do not put at least 190 runs on the board.

SRH vs MI Dream11 Prediction

With Jonny Bairstow and Quinton de Kock both in prime form, picking between the two can be hard. Jonny Bairstow has already played on this surface on a couple of occasions which just gives him the edge over de Kock.

Considering that Kane Williamson will not be playing in the upcoming matches, we have the luxury of picking up all the costly players who are expected to do well in the match. Therefore, picking all among Rohit Sharma, David Warner, and Suryakumar Yadav should not pose too many problems.

Sandeep Sharma, despite having the cost of just 8.0 credits, has done tremendously well and is a sure starter. Picking him and Jason Behrendorff allows us to pick all important players in both bowling as well as all-rounders department. However, there's little to choose between Jasprit Bumrah and Rashid Khan and considering that Bumrah bowls a lot at death and is more likely to pick up wickets, he is our choice for the remaining bowling slot.
