SRH vs MI Dream11 Prediction: The 31st match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians at Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
SRH vs MI Match Preview
Mumbai Indians, who will be high on confidence after their last-ball victory against Chennai Super Kings will face struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next IPL 2021 encounter here at Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday (May 4).
The last time when these two sides met, it was the Mumbai Indians who emerged victorious by a margin of 13 runs in a low scoring thriller. Undoubtedly, it was Hyderabad’s disappointing batting that let them down as they failed to chase down the target of 151 and were folded for 137.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is rooted to the bottom of the IPL 2021 points table, with only two points from seven games this season. While their middle-order concerns have cost them a game or two, SRH’s depleted bowling attack also hasn’t helped their cause.
Their decision of dropping David Warner in their last match against Rajasthan Royals has only backfired them as they faced a humiliating 55 run loss against RR. If David Warner is made to sit in the next game as well, the other teammates will have to rise to the occasion and fill the void.
However, they have enough firepower in their ranks to launch a comeback, much as they did in IPL 2020. With Manish Pandey and Khaleel Ahmed showing signs of improvement, Sunrisers Hyderabad is a tough nut to crack.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, must be high on confidence after winning their last match against Chennai Super Kings, courtesy of a whirlwind knock of 34-ball 87* from Kieron Pollard. CSK bowlers were blown away by the Pollard storm.
However, they will need to bring their A-game on Tuesday, especially with their middle-order struggling for consistency. All eyes will be on Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, both of whom haven’t picked up as many wickets as they would have liked to in IPL 2021.
As long as their head-to-head record is concerned, out of a total of 17 matches between the two sides, Sunrisers Hyderabad has won 8 games while Mumbai has 9 wins under their belt. In their previous clash this season, Mumbai won the game by 13 runs
