IPL 2021, MI vs SRH, 9th Match Match Preview
Mumbai Indians hasn't had a memorable batting performance so far in the two games. Suryakumar Yadav has been their best batsman so far and with the kind of form he is in, he will be their key player this season. Rohit Sharma showed glimpses of him coming back to his best in the last game and might go all the way in this match.
The trio of Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and Kieron Pollard hasn't fired yet. Hardik's form will be crucial for MI this season. Trent Boult has done well but Jasprit Bumrah hasn't fired yet. Rahul Chahar will be the X-factor on a spin-friendly pitch. James Neesham might come in place of Marco Jenson for this match to strengthen the batting.
Sunrisers Hyderabad batting has been below par so far this season. They haven't been able to start well nor they have accelerated in the middle overs. David Warner will be the key player for SRH. There is a case of getting Kane Williamson in place of Jonny Bairstow to strengthen the middle order, however, it will be subject to his fitness.
The bowlers have been good and disciplined. Rashid Khan will be crucial in the middle overs in choking runs as well as taking wickets. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been successful with his variations on a pitch that is already slow.
Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad have a neck-to-neck record in IPL. MI has a well-balanced side while SRH is still figuring out its team combination. Mumbai is looking favorites to win this match.
