Image result for mi vs srh

We are almost at an end of the VIVO IPL 2019 season. With just 9 more matches to go and two spots still up for grab, the 2019 edition promises to be a thriller. Today we see Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede stadium. A win for Mumbai will take them to the playoffs while SRH who sit on 12 points, will have to wait. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai are sitting third with 14 points. With Delhi and Chennai already qualified, MI look to join them with a win today. Rohit Sharma is back in the squad and will partner Quintin de Kock to open the innings. Mumbai will need to take advantage of a weakened batting unit of SRH. The likes of Sharma, Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav will be pivotal in today’s match. The opening pair and middle order failed to accumulate runs in the last match against KKR, while chasing a big total. It was Hardik Pandya’s heroic effort of 91 off just a paltry 34 balls that gave them a shimmer of hope. At the end it was in vain though, as MI ended up losing the match. Mumbai will again look to Pandya to play an explosive innings towards the end.

The Mumbai bowling which has been so crucial in the past few matches fell apart badly in the last one. They have the best pace duo of Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah, who will be key to this match. Barinder Sran and Hardik Pandya, hold vital roles for today’ match.

Rohit Sharma will be vital in the opening while Hardik Pandya will be key towards the ending. The duo of Malinga and Bumrah will need to be at their best today.

Predicted XI

Rohit Sharma, Quintin de Kock, Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Keiron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH face a crucial match ahead of them. Their main batting mainstay David Warner played his last match and Hyderabad will be without their talisman for the rest of the tournament. Warner amassed a mammoth 692 runs in just 12 matches this season. He along with the already departed Bairstow formed a formidable opening partnership. Now it’s up to Kane Williamson and the replacement Martin Guptill to finish the job. The likes of Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar and Wridhhiman Saha will need to be at their best to secure a win today for the Orange army.

SRH possesses one of the best bowling units of IPL 2019. An ideal combination of the pace of Bhuvi and Khaleel combined with the trickery of spinner Rashid Khan give them an edge over MI. The Afghan spinner has been a nightmare for the opposition batsmen. SRH will bank on him and Khaleel Ahmed to deliver the goods in today’s match.

Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey will be key to battle the opposition. Rashid Khan and Khaleel Ahmed are the key players in the bowling attack.

Predicted XI

Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Wridhhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Abhishek Sharma.
