IPL 2021: MI vs SRH, Probable playing XIs, Head-to-head count for Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad encounter

The Orange Army, Sunrisers Hyderabad have already lost two matches while batting second.

Preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have made a terrible start to the IPL 2021 journey after losing both the matches against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Both the times, they failed to chase down their targets horribly.

In their previous game against RCB, they were almost on the line of the victory, but couldn’t win. The David Warner led SRH will now play against the Mumbai Indians (MI) on Saturday, April 17 at MA Chidabaram Stadium.

The main hurdle that seem to be always on their head, is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batting performance. Apart from them, the Rohit Sharma and Co must be full of confidence now after winning against KKR because of their stupendous bowling department.
