Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians will play in the 55th match of IPL 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover SRH vs MI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
SRH has managed to win a match towards the end of the league but is at the bottom on the IPL 2021 points table with six points.
In the last match, Jason Roy opened the innings and missed his fifty by just six runs, and a new opener Abhishek Sharma scored a few quick runs. Williamson performed well in some of the matches at No.3, but the middle-order has not performed this season. Only Abdul Samad and Jason Holder have played well.
The bowlers contributed better this season and came close to winning most of the matches. Jason Holder and Rashid Khan are the key bowlers of the team, but the remaining bowlers also managed to pick up one wicket each in the last match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has nothing to lose now and might be causing upset to other teams if they win the last match.
Mumbai Indians are in a dangerous situation as they have won six out of the thirteen matches and are currently at the 5th position on the points table with 12 points.
They tried a new opening pair in the form of Rohit and Ishan Kishan. Rohit gave a decent start, and Ishan Kishan scored a brilliant fifty from just 25 balls. The form of Surya Kumar Yadav is still a concern for MI. With players like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Krunal Pandya being out of shape with the bat, the middle-order has been a weakness in the recent matches.
The bowlers have put maximum effort into keeping Mumbai alive in the competition. Bumrah has been the consistent wicket-taker, and Nathan Coulter-Nile bowled brilliantly, picking up four wickets in the last match. Jimmy Neesham also got three scalps in the previous game.
The chance of Mumbai Indians qualifying for the playoffs will depend on the performance of the Kolkata Knight Riders.
