Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Betting Tips

Mumbai Indians will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in match nine of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Chennai on Saturday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming in with a feel-good factor after managing to win both of their first two matches.

The team management will be hoping that just like the last year, the defending champions will continue their good run in the competition.

On the other hand, the Sunrisers will be coming in this fixture relatively low on confidence after suffering back-to-back defeats in their first two matches of the competition.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping that the players will help the side in turning their fortune around in the match on Saturday.

Both teams have faced off 16 times before in the history of India’s cash-rich T20 league where they have managed to win on eight occasions each.

In the two matches during the IPL 2020, Mumbai emerged victorious in the first one by 34 runs whereas Sunrisers came out on top by a 10-wicket margin in the second one.

Mumbai Indians Form and Team news:

After registering back-to-back victories in the competition, Mumbai Indians are unlikely to make too many changes in the playing XI for the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

In the batting department, the team will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Rohit Sharma, South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard and in-form young batsman Suryakumar Yadav to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar to create crucial breakthroughs in this contest.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form and Team news:

After suffering consecutive defeats, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be tempted to make a few adjustments in the playing XI.

The team management will be extremely concerned with the batting performance in the first couple of matches where despite restricting the opposition to a chaseable score on both occasions, the batsmen could not finish the job which was expected of them.

Therefore, to strengthen the batting order, the management might opt to include opener Jason Roy or New Zealand’s captain Kane Williamson in place of all-rounder Jason Holder but that is very likely to weaken the bowling unit.

In the batting department, the Sunrisers will be relying on the likes of captain David Warner, England’s wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey to score the bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma along the star leg-spinner Rashid Khan to produce timely breakthroughs for the team.

Our Tipster’s Angle

The match between Mumbai and Hyderabad will mark the beginning of the third round of matches in the IPL 2021.

Even though both teams are placed at the very opposite end of the league table, their previous record suggests that they’ve remained extremely competitive over the years with eight wins each in just 16 matches.

However, looking at the current form and the overall team composition, Mumbai Indians look a far stronger unit.

Therefore, the prediction is for the Rohit Sharma-led unit to secure a hard-fought win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Tip 1: Manish Pandey’s excellent form for Sunrisers this season

Coming in at no.3 in the batting order, Manish Pandey has shown excellent form for Sunrisers so far this season.  In two matches played, Pandey has accumulated 99 runs at a strike rate of 119.28

In six matches played against Mumbai, Pandey has scored 144 runs at an average of 36.00 with one half-century to his name.

Given his consistency with the bat this season, we are expecting Manish Pandey to score 25 runs or more in this [email protected].

Tip 2: Suryakumar Yadav’s incredible consistency at the top of the innings

For the past couple of years, Suryakumar Yadav has been a premier performer for Mumbai Indians in the batting department. In the previous game, Suryakumar Yadav notched up a splendid half-century for Mumbai Indians.

Due to consistently good performances in the T20 format, we are expecting Suryakumar Yadav to score 30 runs or more against [email protected].


Expect Mumbai Indians to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad and clinch top spot in the league table.

  1. Manish Pandey to score 25 runs or more- Sunrisers [email protected]
