Trends & Recent Form

It looks very much like the same old story. The Mumbai Indians lost their first match of the IPL and then go on a winning run. The Sunrisers on the other hand have had a very dissapointing start to the tournament. Unfortunately, we think it’ll be a third straight defeat for the SRH.

Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: Mumbai Indians to win at 1.61*

We cant see the Mumbai Indians slipping up against SRH. MI have done their usual party trick of losing their opening match and then winning. We think SRH simply dont have enough in the locker to overcome what will be a stubborn Mumbai Indians team.

  • Pick 1: Trent Boult, total match wickets OVER 1.5, odds 2.10

Boult has been in great form.  The left arm speedster has started the IPL in blistering fashion. With the SRH lower order batsmen in poor form, Boult could well have a great day at the office.

  • Pick 2: Total match fours UNDER 27.5, odds 1.90 

We’ve already suggested SRH aren’t doing enough to find the boundaries. At these odds, this could see some nice returns.
