Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Predictions

The Mumbai Indians bounced back to win their last match while the Sunrisers have lost two in a row. Mumbai’s Rohit Sharma found some for in his last innings so my best bet is for him to score over 23.5 runs in this match.

  • Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma has scored over 23.5 runs in 4 of his last 5 limited overs matches.
  • Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma scored 43 runs in his last match.
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad’s David Warner scored 54 runs in his last IPL match.
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad’s David Warner was the 2nd highest run scorer in the 2020 IPL.
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their last 2 matches.

Head to Head

Mumbai Indians have won three of their last five matches against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. One of those victories however came via a Super Over after the scores were tied.

In their last match, the Sunrisers beat Mumbai by 10 wickets in the 2020 IPL.

Mumbai Indians Form

The Mumbai Indians bounced back from their opening defeat to beat the Kolkata Knight Riders by five runs in Chennai.

On a slow wicket the Mumbai Indians mustered a total of 152 runs. Rohit Sharma hit 43 off 32 balls while Suryakumar Yadav top scored on 56 runs.

The Knight Riders made a great start in the chase, putting on a 72-run opening partnership. That was until the Mumbai-based outfit introduced Rahul Chahar into the attack. The spinner took the wickets of the top four batsmen to end on figures of 4-27 in four overs.

Mumbai Indians Injuries & Team News

The Mumbai Indians dropped Chris Lynn for the last match despite the Australian top scoring in their opening fixture. Quinton de Kock came in to replace him but only scored two.

After victory in their last match it is unlikely that the Mumbai Indians will do much in terms of changes.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their opening two IPL matches to the Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Their last match was against the Royal Challengers in Chennai where the Sunrisers were on course for victory but somehow blew their chances. It was a decent bowling effort on a benign Chennai pitch as Jason Holder took 3-30 to help restrict the Challengers to 149 runs.

Wriddhiman Saha departed early in the chase but David Warner (54) and Manish Pandey (38) took the Sunrisers to 96 before Warner was dismissed. With just 54 needed from close to seven overs, it looked like a cruise to victory for the Sunrisiers Hyderabad.

Unfortunately the wickets started tumbling and they lost their way, eventually ending on 143-9. The six run defeat will surely have dented their confidence and they’ll need to bounce back strong in this fixture.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Injuries & Team News

Wriddhiman Saha has failed in both matches thus far but there will need to be a complete reshuffle to drop him. Jason Roy is an opening option but then an international player needs to drop out.

With Kane Williamson apparently just about ready for action, the Sunrisers could be in for a few selection headaches.
