Indian Premier League, 2019 | Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians, 19th Match | SRH vs MI Who Will Win
The table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad are next in action for the 19th match of IPL 2019 and their opponents in this game will be the three-time champions Mumbai Indians. This pulsating contest will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad.
After dumping the Delhi Capitals in their own backyard, a confident Sunrisers unit led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar will head back to their home to face Mumbai Indians in their 5th encounter of the season.
After losing their opening game to Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens, Sunrisers have come back very strongly with three back-to-back wins. Two of those three wins came at their home in Hyderabad where they have terrific win-rate across seasons.
Their openers Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have been exceptional so far and with the form they are in, they definitely look unstoppable. Three century stands for the opening wicket from the first three games followed by a 60+ stand in their last game against Delhi Capitals definitely showcase the form they are currently in.
In the bowling department, Rashid Khan and Sandeep Sharma have been delivering goods while all-rounder Mohammad Nabi has got 6 scalps so far from just 2 games. All their basis looks covered as of now therefore, a hat-trick of wins looks quite a possibility.
Alike all the other seasons, Mumbai Indians once again have started slowly but this team knows how to win out of crunch situations and how to tame the best going around. They did so in their last encounter against Chennai Super Kings who were eyeing their fourth win on the trot but Mumbai Indians had some other plans.
It was Mumbai Indians who emerged victorious in the IPL’s “El-Classico” as they thumped the defending champions by 37 runs to register their second win of the season from 4 games. This was a very crucial win for Mumbai Indians as their quest to enter into the top 4 begins here.
Mumbai have had the upper hand over CSK in the past when it comes to head-to-head battles between the two sides, but things are different when it comes to Sunrisers Hyderabad. They will look to improve their record against Hyderabad who have been one of the most consistent sides from the last 3 years or so, and taming them in their own den won’t be an easy task for MI.

Here’s how both teams might line-up:-
J Bairstow, D Hooda, V Shankar, Sandeep Sharma, M Pandey, S Kaul, D Warner, M Nabi, Y Pathan, R Khan, B Kumar
Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendorff, Ben Cutting, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya.
Players to watch out from MI:
Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma at the top for Mumbai Indians have done well individually at times but are yet to fire together. Suryakumar Yadav got a half-century in the last game against Chennai Super Kings while Hardik Pandya finished off in style.
In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah and Jason Behrendorff will hold the key.
Players to watch out from Sunrisers Hyderabad:
The openers Jonny Bairstow and David Warner are the top two run-getters of the tournament. Other batsmen in the middle order haven’t got much chance. However, Vijay Shankar has looked good in the limited opportunities he has got with the bat. All-rounder Mohammad Nabi is also a good option as he has got 6 wickets from 2 games and is a handy customer with the bat as well.
The bowling will once again revolve around the likes of Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma. Both Rashid and Sandeep have been among wickets, whereas, Bhuvneshwar Kumar got 2 in the last game.
