SRH vs Mumbai: Analysis





  • They have the best bowling attack in all the teams playing this IPL

  • The batting is also smashing but has not been tested as a unit.

  • Manish Pandey is an India regular these days and he would be mainstay in the middle order in absence of Warner now.

  • Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda along with Shakib Al Hasan are good enough to be in the finishers role.

  • Top 4 need to score well in first six overs.

  • Probable 11: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib al Hasan, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Billy Stanlake, Siddarth Kaul.

  • Their last victory was picture perfect and they would not change anything with the squad ideally.

  • The pitch is going to be the same as it was in the last match.

  • They also look to be the only team who could win a match even batting first without it being a rain curtailed match.

  • Scoring anything near 160-170 against them would be a fine score



  • Their bowling attack can be termed the second best.

  • With Pat Cummins out of the tournament, they don't have much replacement options with them.

  • I expect them to field the same squad as the one which played the last match. However JP Duminy might(just might) get a look in in place of Evin Lewis. But i don’t think that would happen this early.

  • There's a injury concern with Hardik Pandya. Will be interesting to see who comes in.

  • Probable 11: Rohit Sharma (c), Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya/Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mustafizur Rahman, Jasprit Bumrah.

  • Rohit will continue to open since middle order performed well in the last match, even though they lost.


Prediction: Sunrisers shall rise again to the occasion and win the match. Sunrisers are the most balanced side in the tournament even in absence of Warner.


Dream 11 Team: Ishan Kishan, Manish Pandey(VC), Kieron Pollard, Shikhar Dhawan(C), Surya Kumar Yadav, Shakib, krunal, bhuvneshwar, Jasprit, Rashid, Markande


If hardik does not play they might draft in Ben cutting and saurabh tiwary and ishan kishan may be asked to open. Evin Lewis may be moved out. Like for like replacement. No concern though as of now. Hardik can be selected in your teams.
