SRH vs MI Dotball Preview
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Consistency at test
Sunrisers Hyderabad started off with a loss in IPL 2019 however the Sunrisers Hyderabad lost to one man with a ballistic bat – Andre Russell and not SRH as a team. The bowling unit, which was considered to be the strongest in IPL 2018 did pose a few struggles against Kolkata Knight Riders. A lot is Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan’s shoulders, the newbie Nabi has been impressive too.
David Warner looked rock solid in his comeback game in IPL 2019. SRH will be missing Dhawan & Warner’s opening combo, however, Kane Williamson’s return is unlikely into the playing XI as Bairstow has been excellent with David Warner in the beginning of the innings.
Determined Mumbai Indians look to continue their winning momentum
Mumbai Indians have been the most inconsistent team in this edition of the IPL so far. However, they showed the hunger to grab a victory under tough bowling conditions against the undefeated CSK which is a major feat to pull off for any team. MI have failed to perform as a team more often than not and the last game was a change in attitude, mindset and determination levels.
Hardik Pandya was sensational with the bat towards the end of the innings and contributed with the ball as well. The bowling camp spearheaded by Malinga and Bumrah instills a lot of confidence in MI’s prospects. The middle order batsmen look a tad too shaky at times and Ishan Kishan might get a chance to prove himself in the upcoming games.
