Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in match 10 of IPL 2017 on Wednesday. The match could be very interesting to watch as both the teams have high profile players that could win the match for their side singlehandedly.
Sunrisers will be high on confidence before starting this match as they are the defending champion and have won their first two-game very easily. On the other hand, same is not the case with Mumbai Indians as they have won one match and lost one in their two matches that they have played so far in the season.
Mumbai Indians have played well in both of their games. The main concern for the team would be the form of top order batsman like Rohit Sharma, Josh Buttler, Keiron Pollard who are yet to fire with the bat in the tournament. The lower order batsman has been in the good form specially Hardik Panday who has played two brilliant innings in the IPL so far. Mumbai has not been impressive with the ball also as they have conceded huge total in both the matches.
They need to find the right combination for this match or this match might prove very difficult to them. In this match also their batting lineup will depend on the likes of Rohit Sharma, Parthiv Patel, Buttler, Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Nitish Rana. They will have to bat well to put the huge total on the board. Their bowler also needs to join the party.
On the other hand, things are looking very well for the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad. They have started this season where they had left last year. All of their batsmen are in good form. In the first match, Dhawan and Yuvraj showed that they could dismantle any bowling attack. In the second match, Warner and Henriques also showed that they are no less with the bat.
Their bowling attack looks even more dangerous this time. Rashid Khan, Afganistan leg-spinner has been in superb form this season. He has been unplayable as a batsman has struggled to pick his deliveries. He is the one bowler that could create a lot of problem for the Mumbai’s batsman. The other bowlers are also in good form. Their bowling attack will get a new spice with the addition of Mustafizur Rahman.
In this match, their batting will depend on the like of Warner, Dhawan, Yuvraj, Henriques. In the bowling department, they have the likes of Kumar, Nehra, Cutting, Henriques, Rashid Khan.
MI vs SRH Match Prediction, IPL 2017:
This match would be a great competition between bat and ball and would be tough for both the teams but certainly Sunrisers have the upper hand with the form that they are currently.
