SRH vs MI Match Predictions: Form preview
Can SRH end the tournament on a bang?
SRH were one of the pre-tournament favourites. They seemed to have had all the bases covered. But their campaign derailed even before it could take off. They not only axed David Warner from captaincy but also dropped him from the playing XI. But nothing could shake off SRH’s poor performance. Their constant chopping and changing didn’t help matters. SRH somehow managed to win against RCB. They have 3 wins from 13 games. They will be aiming to finish the league on a high. Can they turn it around against a quality side like MI? Their fans will be expecting nothing less than that.
MI know what it will take, but can they deliver what it takes?
Mumbai Indians put on a clinical show against Rajasthan Royals. They restricted RR to just 90 and chased the score within 10 overs. This huge win helped their net run rate to a great extent. MI will know exactly how they have to go about the proceedings as KKR is the team they are chasing on the points table. The stars seemed to be suddenly aligned for MI heading into the fag end of the league. Expect a cracker of a contest.
