Preview & Prediction: Match 56 (SRH vs MI)

SRH's last hand
This game is only important for Sunrisers and expect the main players of MI to be rested in view with the approaching Qualifier 1.  The new combination has worked well for Sunrisers with the middle order firing in tandem with the openers. Rashid has been unplayable in the season so far and will be looking to lead an otherwise modest bowling attack. No NRR into play, a win would mean SRH meet RCB in the Eliminator. SRH will be starting as favorites unless MI plays with enough reinforcements.


Sharjah: Statistically highest scoring ground but the story has changed a lot since the first phase of the tournament. Teams have been successful chasing here and the team winning toss should do the same.

Probable XI
MI: Kishan, de Kock, Surya, Tiwary, Hardik, Pollard, Krunal, Chahar, Boult, Pattinson, Bumrah

SRH: Warner, Saha, Manish, Kane, Samad, Holder, Abhishek, Rashid, Nadeem, Sandeep, Natarajan


Head to Head
Head to Head MI are just ahead 8-7

MI have won last 3 games vs SRH including one earlier this season.

Fantasy Team
If the key players are missing from Mumbai, good idea to go SRH heavy in the fantasy XI. Saha's record vs pace is very impressive.


HTH Records
Dhawan & Warner have 400+ runs while de Kock has great outings against the orange army.
