Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Monday evening’s 2024 Indian Premier League fixture sees Mumbai Indians go head to head with Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 55 of the tournament. Mumbai Indians have lost four in a row and are bottom of the table with Sunrisers six points ahead of them after six wins from ten matches. Read on as we preview this game which begins at 19:30 local time at the Wankhede Stadium on May 6th.

Requiring only 170 runs to beat Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday night in Match 51, Mumbai Indians were once again unable to find a way to get over the finish line. However, they still have a team full of internationals and we expect them to have a good chance of winning this match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad became only the second team to beat Rajasthan Royals this season when they got over the line by a tight 1-run margin on Thursday. They are a team who bat without fear and we can expect them to take a similar approach into this match when they will back themselves to win.

MI vs SRH Match Toss Prediction

There have been 114 previous IPL matches at the Wankhede Stadium with the team fielding first winning 53.51% of the games. But three of the last four have been won by the team batting first so we predict that both skippers will want to bat first in this match

MI vs SRH Pitch Report

There is some assistance for the pace bowlers at the Wankhede Stadium and the pitch is a little two-paced for the batters. Any total over 200 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings and it will be hard to hit immediate boundaries for any level of batter while they get used to the pace of the wicket.

Mumbai Weather Report

Clear skies are forecast throughout Monday evening in Mumbai and we can also expect high humidity levels. The temperature is not anticipated to drop below 30 degrees at any point.

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

There was one change for Mumbai Indians on Friday from their previous game as Naman Dhir came into the side in place of Mohammad Nabi. Dhir impressed earlier in the tournament with his aggression and we expect him to retain his place for this match.

MI Key Players

  • Suryakumar Yadav- the 33 year old big hitting batter came in at number four in the last game but we expect him to be back in at number three in this clash.
  • Tim David- the Australian is an excellent ‘finisher’ of an innings and he hit 24 from number eight in the last match. He could also move up the order in this game.
  • Nuwan Thushara- the Sri Lankan pace bowler took three wickets before the end of the third over against KKR and has four wickets from his last two matches.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- the international right-arm fast bowler is currently in possession of the Purple Cap and has a strike-rate of 15.47 in the 2024 IPL so far.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rohit Sharma, Shams Mulani, Shivalik Sharma, Dewald Brevis, Romario Shepher

It was no surprise to see Rohit Sharma come in for the batting innings and we expect him to do the same in this match with Nuwan Thushara likely to make way once more.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians are hoping to avoid their fifth defeat in a row and their ninth of this campaign in this game.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Ishan Kishan (wk), Naman Dhir, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Nehal Wadhera, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah, Nuwan Thushara

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

There was one change for Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of their win against Rajasthan Royals with Pat Cummins announcing a switch of South Africans at the toss and Marco Jansen returning in place of Aiden Markram. Jansen’s all-round ability mean he is likely to be selected again.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head- the Australian left-hander has hit a hundred or a half-century in four of his nine innings so far in IPL 2024 and he struck nine boundaries in the last match.
  • Heinrich Klaasen- the South African remains one of the most feared T20 batters in the world and he arrives at this match after hitting 42 not out from 19 balls against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- although the right-arm fast medium bowler is not the threat that he once was five or six years ago, he still has the ability to remove Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson in the opening over on Thursday.
  • Pat Cummins- the Australian skipper has taken key wickets across this campaign. He dismissed Riyan Parag in the 16th and Dhruv Jurel in the 19th which were crucial to Sunrisers beating Rajasthan.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Imran Malik, Mayank Markande, Aiden Markram, Sanvir Singh, Jaydev Unadkat

Although he went wicketless in the last game, Jaydev Unadkat has had a strong tournament and we anticipate he will come off the bench again in this match in place of Anmolpreet Singh.

SRH Team Form

Sunrisers Hyderabad will arrive in Mumbai after winning five of their last seven games in the competition. 

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Anmolpreet Singh, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Marco Jansen, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan

Who will win Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match?

Although Sunrisers Hyderabad have undoubtedly had a more successful season so far, Mumbai Indians do have some brilliant individuals and player for player we have them as the top side.

🏆 MI vs SRH Prediction

We expect this to be a very well contested game with Sunrisers Hyderabad a changed side this season and on track for a playoff position. However, even though Mumbai Indians are at the bottom of the table, there is so much talent in their team that at some point an opposition is going to be thrashed. Sunrisers play in such an attacking manner that they give opportunities and we are backing Mumbai Indians to take them and to win this match.
