MI vs SRH Dream11 Prediction: The 9th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Friday, April 16, 2021.
MI vs SRH Match Preview
The defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 9th match of IPL 2021 here at Chennai. Both the teams have played 2 matches so far in this season of VIVO IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad lost both of their games while chasing. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians won their last game against KKR after facing a defeat in the first one.
All eyes will be on whether Sunrisers Hyderabad will play Kiwi batsman Kane Williamson, who did not feature in either of the team’s first two matches. In their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Orange Army had the upper hand for most of the game, but couldn’t get over the line.
The usual suspects, David Warner and Rashid Khan, have continued to impress, but they will need more from Manish Pandey, who has scored runs at a very slow pace. With a decent bowling attack in place, Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to set the record straight and climb up the IPL 2021 points table as soon as possible.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand showed why they are the favorites to win the IPL title for the third consecutive time after they snatched a win from the jaws of defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders. Mumbai Indians’ middle order completely collapsed before Andre Russell’s disastrous bowling.
However, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult continue to work wonders, Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya’s exploits against KKR hold them in good stead. With the likes of Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav also looking in decent touch with the bat, the Mumbai Indians look set for another win.

Top 5 Picks For MI vs SRH
1. Suryakumar Yadav
After scoring 31 runs in his first IPL 2021 game, he scored 56 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders. This player is the only batsman who has been very consistent for Mumbai Indians.
2. David Warner
The Australian southpaw and runs go hand in hand. Warner smashed a defiant fifty last game. It was his 49th fifty in the IPL. Warner will be keen to get SRH past the line and would want to bat long.
3. Rashid Khan
He is in good form and has picked 2 wickets each in the two games he played in this VIVO IPL so far. Against MI, Khan has eight wickets to his name from 32 overs with an economy of 5.22.
4. Jonny Bairstow
He has scored a half-century in the first game while departed for 12 in the second game. He must be looking to get a big inning in this game once again.
5. Quinton de Kock
The South-African couldn’t quite get going in the game against KKR, getting out to Varun Chakravarthy. But against the Sunrisers, the left-hander has more than decent numbers. In nine games, he has scored 331 runs at an average and strike rate of 41.38 and 137.34 respectively.
