Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
The Weekend Thriller is here! MI vs SRH. One of the best bowling units is going to face one of the best batting units. Rashid Khan is going to be a differentiator for the Sunrisers and he has been in great form lately. Even it was a surprise to see Jason Holder coming in for Nabi in the previous game for the Sunrisers and he can also be efficient with the ball and also can be handy with the bat in the lower middle order.
This is going to be a tough call picking up one team from both the franchises. The head to head to head record of both the teams is indistinguishable. In the 16 matches played between the two teams, Sunrisers have emerged victorious 8 times and Mumbai Indians have won the rest 8 fixtures.
My prediction for this match is that though Mumbai Indians are certainly favourites on the books but the pitch in Chennai as we all know assists the spinners very well and it wouldn’t be a surprise for me to see Mujeeb coming into the playing XI alongside his Afghanistan team mate Rashid Khan and probably they can cause trouble for the Mumbai Indians.
Sunrisers Hyderabad for the win!
