MI Vs SRH Match Prediction, Preview, Playing XI: Who Will Win today’s IPL Match?

The 23rd match of IPL 2018 is set to take place between Mumbai Indians Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. The two teams will be coming on the back of losses against Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings respectively. Join us as we bring to you the team news, Playing XIs, match analysis and predictions.

(MI) Mumbai Indians

It was a tough Sunday for Rohit Sharma who saw a relatively unknown Krishnappa Gowtham scoring a mind-boggling 11 balls 33 to seal the game. MI was in and out throughout the game, and at one stage looked to post a total well above 200, only to see a calamitous batting failure. MI bowlers have fared well so far in IPL 2018, and the pair of Bumrah and Mustafizur are pairing up well with Mayank Markande bowling economically and Pandya brothers chipping in with few overs. The addition of McClenaghan adds a bit more spice, and they have Adam Milne backing up as well. Rohit Sharma’s decision to send Ishan Kishan at number 3 may bode well for the youngster, but the MI captain went for a naught after terrible running. He is the key to MI’s IPL 2018 hopes, and fans will be eager to see a run feast at the Wankhede.


MI has a fantastic batting lineup and Suryakumar Yadav as an opener is paying dividends, but the form of Kieron Pollard is a bit worrying. We haven’t seen a Power-Pollard innings in IPL 11 till now, and his bowling has also been restricted to nil. Mumbai Indians may not want to change anything, but we may see JP Duminy get a nod ahead of him given Pollard’s misery continues. The form of Hardik Pandya is worrying as well, and the lad from Baroda is still lacking the finisher’s quality.

Evin Lewis and Surya Kumar Yadav will be the key players with the bat, and being a home match one cannot rule out Hitman. In the bowling department, my best bets will be Bumrah-Mustafizur pair.

MI Playing XI in today’s Match

Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman.

(SRH) Sunrisers Hyderabad

We may take back our words with Sunrisers Hyderabad the team to beat in IPL 2018. With two consecutive defeats and Dhawan out for a considerable time, SRH’s batting glitches are getting prominent with each match. However, Kane Williamson played a gem of an innings, but could not guide them past CSK’s 182. Yusuf Pathan has finally come to the party, but there remains a lack of X-factor with Dhawan sitting out. Alex Hales is a terrific option, but with 4 foreign players rule it will be tough for him to break into the team. Shakib and Billy Stanlake look set and Williamson will always be there. The only option remains to bench Rashid Khan and get Hales going.


It will be unlikely considering Rashid is a potent lower order batsman and one of the best spinners in T20 at the moment. Manish Pandey has had a disaster IPL 2018 till now, and Kane’s patience may start to war thin as there is a lack of a stable head in the middle. Stanlake and Bhuvi are the pillars of SRH’s bowling lineup, and Rashid Khan despite his occasional belting has been brilliant so far.

The key players for me remain to be Kane Williamson in batting and Bhuvi and Rashid Khan in the bowling department. On a flat Wankhede pitch, this may be another 400+ wicket, but SRH’s bowling remains to be the X-factor.

Playing XI

Ricky Bhui, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey/Sachin Baby, Deepak Hooda/ Tanmay Agarwal, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake, Siddharth Kaul.

MI Vs SRH Match Prediction: Who Will Win today’s IPL match?

Mumbai Indians will have a slighter edge given the home conditions and a powerful batting line-up. Despite batting second being the trend of winners in IPL 2018, SRH may want to post an above par score and look to restrict MI. The dew factor will play a huge role. It’s going to be an interesting battle. MI has good betting lineup whereas SRH has best bowling-lineup in this IPL. We think SRH is more of a balanced team than MI.
