Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad has always been an exciting contest for the fans. But this time, the contest won’t hold much value as Mumbai Indians are already knocked out of the tournament and on the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is on the verge of getting knocked out. Both Kane Williamson and Rohit Sharma had an average season and they will be looking to finish it on a high note.

Mumbai won that match but still got knocked out of the tournament. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad has done well against Mumbai Indians in the last few matches.

Sunrisers Hyderabad was having a great season as they won five consecutive matches. However, after that, they lost 5 consecutive matches and lost the plot. At the top, Abhishek Sharma has been doing well but the lack of runs from Kane Williamson has made things difficult for the team. In the middle order, Rahul Tripathi played some good innings but hasn’t done much in the last few matches. Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran have also performed in bits and pieces. Besides them, the bowlers have also failed to do their job as apart from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, no one has been able to perform well. Umran Malik, T Natrajan and Marco Jansen are giving away runs. Even the absence of a quality spinner is also hurting them a lot this year.

For Mumbai Indians, things haven’t worked out properly as they lost the core in this mega auction. At the top, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma aren’t doing their job as they have failed to score runs and hence the middle order is always under pressure. Only Tilak Verma in the middle order along with Tim David has got some runs. Apart from them, no one has been able to perform well which has made things worse for them this year. Jasprit Bumrah, Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith have bowled well but still, they are not able to do it consistently and hence they aren’t performing up to the expectations.

Final Thoughts

Though Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad will mostly be a dead rubber, the fans will be expecting some fireworks from both the teams now. So, we predict that this time, Sunrisers Hyderabad will come out on the top by beating up Mumbai Indians in a close match and Rahul Tripathi could be the one to take them home in this contest. However, Mumbai Indians will be fighting hard in this match to get a win. Thus the bettors can opt for Sunrisers Hyderabad to bet in order to gain some good profits.
