Mumbai to hit most sixes
Bhuvneshwar to be Sunrisers' Top Bowler
MI boasts of in-form batters such as Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tim David, Nehal Wadhera and Rohit Sharma. SRH, on the other hand, heavily rely on Heinrich Klaasen. MI have struck 115 sixes in 13 games compared to only 77 by SRH.
Our prediction: Mumbai Indians to hit most sixes in the match at 13/20 (1.65).
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is an excellent new-ball bowler and can make a difference. He has taken 15 wickets from 13 games. Back Bhuvi to be SRH’s top wicket-taker at 11/4 (3.75). Piyush Chawla has bagged 20 wickets from 13 games at 7.66 economy. Bet on Chawla to be the top bowler for MI at 11/4 (3.75).

MI vs SRH Preview
SRH will be looking to end the season on high while MI need to pull off a big win. Here’s a look at two teams ahead of their clash on Sunday.
MI have 14 points but their net run-rate of -0.128 means they need one other result to go their way. If both CSK and LSG win their games, MI will need to win this game by a heavy margin to edge RCB on net run-rate.
They suffered a five-run defeat against LSG in the previous game. Chris Jordan could be dropped after poor performances, with Riley Meredith likely to come in. Tilak Varma could also be back.
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Tim David, Cameron Green, Nehal Wadhera, Piyush Chawla, Riley Meredith, Kumar Kartikeya, Jason Behrendorff
Sunrisers have nothing to lose, having been knocked out of the playoffs race already. They managed to win only four games out of 13. Most recently, they lost by eight wickets versus RCB.
SRH made a huge mistake in the previous game by leaving out leg-spinner Mayank Markande. He should be back in the side for this game.
Predicted XI: Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Harry Brook, Glenn Phillips, Abdul Samad, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Kartik Tyagi
