Can Mumbai Indians make a comeback and finish the season on a high note? Find out in our in-depth analysis


Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Team Preview

Strengths and Weaknesses of Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians are known for the comebacks. In almost every season we see them losing initially and then making their way to the top. This season, they won’t be able to qualify for the playoffs, but we can still see them make a comeback and to finish on a high note. This will give their dugout the confidence they desperately need.

MI’s captaincy change and all the turmoil within the dressing room is their biggest weakness. It is the sole reason why the franchise couldn’t do well despite having big guns in their team like Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya.

Strengths and Weaknesses of Sunrisers Hyderabad 

SRH have used their foreign players in the best way they could. They are playing with Pat Cummins(c), Travis Head, Heinrich Klaasen and Marco Jansen as foreign players and all of them are performing exceedingly well. No other team has optimally used foreign players like they have done. 


In all the matches so far, whenever  SRH has posted a total beyond 200, they have won the match. But whenever they had to chase that much score, they failed.

Hence, their biggest weakness, which is now totally exposed, is their ability to chase. Their bowlers have enough capability to defend a target. But batters don’t stand on the occasion when they have to accelerate and chase.

Injuries and Suspensions

All the players from either side are fully fit and ready for the massive clash between the two sides.

Venue and Weather Conditions

Clash between MI and SRH will be held in the Wankhade Stadium. The ground is next to the sea and hence the gentle breeze always gives an advantage to the seamers. The balls tend to swing initially. Also, due to the red soil, the ball will have some extra bounce. Thus, it is a great wicket for medium pacers. 

It will be a hot and humid evening on Monday, as the temperature will be around 32 degree Celsius with 63% humidity. 

Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview: Managerial Tactics

MI are well aware of SRH’s weakness about chasing high totals, so, they will prefer to bat first in case they win the toss. Jasprit Bumrah will play a key role in blocking the run flow of the opponent team. Apart from that, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya will be looking to make a comeback. 

SRH’s seamers too will play a key role as conditions will suit the swinging bowler the most. Hence , Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Pat Cummins and T Natranjan will be looking to make the most of the chance given.

Recent Form:

SRH won their last match against RR as they successfully defended 201. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the veteran, was awarded Man of the Match as he grabbed three crucial wickets of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson and Rovman Powell. Post this win, SRH are standing 4th on the points table. 

MI, on the other hand, are having a lean patch as they lost yet another match. KKR beat them in Wankhade after 12 years. After the game, they stand last on the points table. 

Historical Context 

Both the teams have already conquered the trophy before and their cabinets have the silverware. But in 2024, SRH has a brighter chance of repeating history. 

They are having a good season so far, as Pat Cummins and Co are scoring massive scores every now and then. 

Fans and Atmosphere

MI aren’t getting any home advantage in Wankhade. Their captain, Hardik Pandya is being constantly mocked and that is having a great impact on his individual performance. Although the crowd will be seen in blue, the franchise still can’t expect much support from them. 

Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview: Prediction and Analysis

SRH are in desperate need of the two points and they will be looking to qualify for the playoffs. Pat Cummins, the smarter captain in this game, will come all prepared to counter against MI in their home ground, Wankhade.
