MI vs SRH: 5-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, with MI teetering on the edge of elimination.

Earlier in the season, the two teams engaged in a memorable clash at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. SRH set a formidable total of 277/3, while MI put up a commendable fight to reach 246/5. Despite MI’s efforts, the Orange Army secured victory by 31 runs, marking only their second game in IPL 2024.

Presently, the teams find themselves in contrasting positions on the points table. SRH sits at No. 4, having won six and lost four of their 10 matches, while Mumbai languishes at the bottom with just three wins and eight losses from 11 games.

Tilak Varma leads Mumbai’s run-scoring charts this season, accumulating 347 runs from 11 innings at an average of 38.56 and a strike rate of 151.53. Former captain Rohit Sharma follows closely with 326 runs at an average of 32.60 and a strike rate of 154.50. However, skipper Hardik Pandya’s performance with both bat and ball has been underwhelming.

MI vs SRH Pitch Report

In IPL 2024, five matches have been played at the Wankhede Stadium, with two won by chasing teams and three by teams batting first. The average first innings score is 186. While the swing is observed in the initial overs, the pitch has shown slower-than-usual characteristics in the last game, assisting spinners despite some dew. Kolkata Knight Riders successfully defended a target of 170 in the previous match, although Mumbai’s batters, including Suryakumar Yadav, struggled to adapt. Opting to bowl first after winning the toss could be advantageous, allowing the chasing team to gauge the conditions.
