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

Match 8 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Mumbai Indians on Wednesday evening at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Both teams lost their opening fixtures with Sunrisers losing by 4 runs to Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians losing to Gujarat Titans by 6 runs. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 19:30 local time in Hyderabad.

Although Sunrisers Hyderabad were beaten in their first game of the 2024 IPL, there were plenty of encouraging moments for the side who finished bottom of the table last year. However, this looks like being another very tough fixture against Mumbai Indians.

It was a very entertaining game between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans in Match 5 although ultimately Hardik Pandya could not lead his side to victory over the team he left at the end of last season. But any team with Hardik, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah are going to be a threat and we expect them to win this fixture.

The average score when batting first at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in the IPL is under 160 but with totals increasing over recent seasons we expect a par first innings total to be around 180.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Under new leadership, Sunrisers Hyderabad very nearly got the better of KKR in Match 3 so we would expect captain Pat Cummins to announce an unchanged XI for this game. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen were both expensive but both are also potential match-winners.

SRH Key Players

  • Heinrich Klaasen – The keeper-batter had a brilliant tournament in 2023 and after hitting eight sixes whilst almost winning the game against KKR he looks set to do the same this year.
  • Mayank Agarwal – The right-handed opener hit four fours and one six at the top of the order in the first game and the 33 year old has over 4700 T20 runs in his career.
  • Pat Cummins – The Australian skipper got the wicket of the well-set Ramndeep Singh in the defeat on Saturday and was the joint least expensive bowler on his side.
  • T Natarajan – The 32 year old bowler dismissed Venkatesh Iyer and Shreyas Iyer within three balls of each other and then also got the wicket of Rinku Singh in an impressive start to the tournament.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Nitish Kumar Reddy, Washington Sundar, Umran Malik, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma

Opener Abhishek Sharma came in for T Natarajan in the batting innings against KKR and hit a quick-fire 32 runs from 19 balls. If Sunrisers are batting first then we expect Sharma to be in the XI at the toss with Natarajan if they bowl first!

SRH Team Form

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s losing run continues but they do look to be a lot more competitive in this season.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Marco Jansen, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, T Natarajan

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

With Suryakumar Yadav still sidelined whilst he recovers from an ankle injury, Mumbai Indians remain not quite at full strength. He is not expected to return for this game and most pundits expect Hardik Pandya to name a very similar XI for this match as was seen against Gujarat Titans.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma – The experienced opener has not had the best of recent seasons for Mumbai Indians but struck seven fours and one six in Match 5 of IPL 2024.
  • Dewald Brevis – The South African top scored for Mumbai Indians against Gujarat Titans and we can expect him to bat in a positive manner once again in this game.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – The pace bowler recorded an economy rate of 3.50 in the opening fixture as well as dismissing three dangerous players in Wriddhiman Saha, David Miller and Sai Sudharsan.
  • Gerald Coetzee – The South African impressed in the second half of the innings with the ball on Sunday. He bowls with good pace and aggression.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Romario Shepherd, Vishnu Vinod, Nehal Wadhera, Mohammad Nabi, Luke Wood

Luke Wood began the game against Gujarat Titans and was expensive before being replaced by Dewald Brevis. We expect Romario Shepherd to be brought in if an additional bowling option is required this time.

MI Team Form

Mumbai Indians could easily have won their opening game with strong performances with both bat and ball.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Naman Dhir, Dewald Brevis, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Hardik Pandya (c), Gerald Coetzee, Shams Mulani, Piyush Chawla, Jasprit Bumrah

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match?

With close defeats for both of these sides in their opening fixtures, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians will both be desperate to get off the mark in this game. Mumbai Indians look to have the stronger side across both XIs.

🏆 SRH vs MI Prediction

Both teams showed enough in their opening game defeats to encourage their fans that this season will be a positive one although whoever loses this will have lost two in a row, not a perfect start. With Heinrich Klaasen and Pat Cummins in the team, Sunrisers Hyderabad can never be written off but we think there is more quality in the Mumbai Indians side. Our prediction is for Mumbai Indians to come out on top in this game on Wednesday.
