Why bet on the Mumbai Indians to win this match at 1.56? 

Their batting top order is brilliant, as Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock form the strongest opening pairing in the league, followed by the dependable Suryakumar Yadav and explosive youngster Ishan Kishan.

They have some explosive all-rounders who have won countless matches for them, such as Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya and the big West Indian Keiron Pollard, adding unmatched balance to the side. 

Their strike bowlers are two of the most lethal pacemen in T20 cricket – Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, who can destroy any batting top order in the league. 

SRH are currently struggling – SRH are one of the poorest teams in the IPL this season, and are currently struggling at the bottom of the table.

SRH VS MI who will win?

To determine SRH vs MI who will win, we need to first look at their current form and also their recent head to head record against each other. Certain patterns help players make an informed betting decision in this market. The playing conditions, nature of the pitch, overall form etc all can affect specific players of these two teams, which in turn can affect the overall result of the match.

SRH vs MI Betting Strategies

When making MI vs SRH predictions there are various betting strategies that can be applied. Below, you will find some SRH vs MI betting strategies that is worth considering. 

Who will Win

The recent form as well as status of being defending champions means that Mumbai Indians will be the favourites for this match. SRH's odds depend on the fitness and form of Bairstow and Warner.

Top Batsman

Researching about the batsman's form, and his least favourable bowlers (the ones who get him out the most), goes a long way in betting on the potential top batsman of a team. His previous record on that ground is also important, as is his record against this particular opponent.

MI Top Batsman

Both these teams possess some brilliant batsmen in their ranks. Mumbai Indians have the best opening pair in the league with Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock both giving blazing starts. Both are likely to be the top 2 favourites to be the top batsmen for MI, followed by the talented young wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan, the ever consistent Suryakumar Yadav, and the explosive all-rounders Keiron Pollard and the Pandya brothers.

SRH Top Batsman

SRH have one of the strongest batting top-orders in the league. David Warner leads the way as the firm favourite to be their top scorer. He is followed by New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson and England Wicket Keeper Johnny Bairstow. Then comes Manish Pandey, who is a proven match-winner too.

Top Bowler

MI vs SRH is a match between two teams with brilliant bowlers in their ranks, with SRH famous for its spinners while MI are famous for their pace attack. This means that the playing conditions and nature of the pitch will directly affect this market, as a grassy pitch with cracks is bound to help spinners like Rashid Khan more than the pacers, while a bouncy hard pitch will favour the likes of Trent Boult a lot.

MI Top Bowler

Mumbai Indians have one of the best bowling attacks in the league, with the lethal pair of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, who have created havoc in the IPL and are the top 2 favourites for this market in every match. Then comes young spinner Rahul Chahar, and all-rounders Pollard and the Pandya brothers, who are as handy with the ball as they are with the bat.

SRH Top Bowler

SRH have the best T20 spinner in their ranks as Rashid Khan is their favourite to be the top bowler. He is followed by Sandeep Sharma and Mohd Nabi.

MI vs SRH Player Betting

Individual player betting has become very popular of late, where the outcome of the match has no bearing on your bet as you are only betting on the individual performance of a player. For example, Ishan Kishan to score more than 31.5 runs is a very attractive bet to place as he is India's latest international batting star. Similarly, Rashid Khan to take 2 or more wickets is also a very attractive bet in the MI vs SRH player betting category as he is SRH's best bowler.

Opening Partnership Betting

Opening pairs are very crucial in T20 cricket, and a solid pair up top can yield brilliant results for every team by giving a quickfire start and set the tone for the innings.

MI Opening Partnership

MI have one of the best opening pairings in the league, with Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma destroying teams at will. Both are exceptionally gifted batsmen who can also hit some huge shots, and have had several 50+ partnerships over the years.

SRH Opening Partnership

SRH also has one of the very best opening pairs as Johnny Bairstow and David Warner have been ripping bowlers apart for 2 years now. When they get going, SRH often scores 180+.

MI vs SRH Head to Head

These two teams have both won the IPL multiple times, with MI winning a record 5 titles, while SRH have won it once. MI vs SRH have faced each other 16 times ever since Deccan Chargers changed to Sunrisers Hyderabad, with MI winning 8 and SRH winning 8 as well.
