Ground Prediction and head to head stats:
The match between MI and SRH is going to be played at Chepauk Stadium, Chennai. It is known for a slow wicket and aid spinners most. Last 2 matches here we saw how destructive the spinners were and it is difficult to chase under lights.
The rivalry between these two sides is neck to neck as each team has won 8 matches played between them. However, SRH is yet to earn points this season and they’ll be eager to win this match.
The middle order of both these sides has struggled so far hence having more top-order batsmen will be fruitful.
Important players for your team
Rohit started off cautiously against RCB where he scored 43 off 32 deliveries. With the middle order not peeking yet, it’s time for Rohit to carry his bat throughout the innings and score big for the team..
This rookie has built his reputation for the last 2 seasons and is known for his unconventional batting style. He has started off well in both the matches with scores of 31 and 56. He will look to convert those starts into a bigger inning.
Warner had a great knock against RCB where he scored 54 off 31. Once he has found his form, it’s hard to stop him from scoring runs and when he scores it’s a reason to worry for the opposition.
Rashid is the most successful bowler for SRH, and he is a real threat at Chepauk. He took 2 wickets in the game against RCB thereby restricting them to a lower score.
Game changing players
He was the unsung hero of the last match against KKR. Just when everyone thought it’s a cakewalk chase, Rahul was the one who made everyone stick to the game. He took 4 wickets in his 4 overs and damaged the KKR batting lineup completely.
It’s time for Kiwi Skipper to make his way into the playing 11 because the team needs his match closing abilities desperately. The Chennai pitch is tailormade for Kane and he is the one who can cause damage with his classy shots. A real game-changer in today’s match.
Best Overseas Picks:
Dekock didn’t have a great first match against KKR but he is the kind of batsman who can take the game away in the first 6 overs itself. Expecting an explosive batting performance from QDK against the quality SRH bowling.
Holder justified his selection in the match by taking 3 important wickets but failed to perform with the bat. In the coming matches he will look to contribute with the bat as well and win matches for his side.
Magic Over Tips
- If Mumbai Bats first – MI likes to go after the opposition right from ball one and even if a wicket falls, the incoming batsmen don’t take much time to settle hence you can select any over between 3rd to 6th as your magic over.
- If Mumbai Bats second – Since the pinch hitters will come into the picture while chasing a target hence selecting any over from 14th to 19th will be beneficial for your team.
- If Hyderabad bats first – SRH are also a side to start aggressively and counterattack the opposition. Hence selecting 2nd to 8th over can prove to be a good decision.
- If Hyderabad bats second – They bat very deep and if a huge target is set, then any over between 14th to 18th can be selected as magic over.
