SRH vs MI Team Prediction

Mumbai Indians

Suryakumar Yadav remains unavailable for Mumbai Indians as he undergoes recovery from ankle surgery at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. It’s also doubtful that he’ll be fit for Mumbai’s first home game on April 1.

When bowling first against Titans, Mumbai included only three overseas players in their XI. They replaced fast bowler Luke Wood with middle-order batter Dewald Brevis for the chase.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

In accordance with the Impact Player strategy, SRH made a change by substituting fast bowler T Natarajan after bowling at Eden Gardens. They brought in opener Abhishek Sharma for the chase.

Legspinner Wanindu Hasaranga has not yet joined the Sunrisers squad and is anticipated to remain unavailable for at least another week. He is seeking consultation with doctors overseas regarding chronic pain in his left heel. The dilemma facing Sunrisers is whether to continue with Marco Jansen, who was costly in the match against KKR, as their overseas bowling option for a bit longer.

Bumrah vs Klaasen

Today, Wednesday’s match against Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad, Heinrich Klaasen might encounter a relatively new challenge. Their head-to-head battle with Jasprit Bumrah is merely one-ball old, resulting in just one run scored. In ODIs, Klaasen has faced 20 deliveries from Bumrah, managing to score 18 runs with one dismissal. With the abundance of international and franchise cricket, the opportunity for a fresh match-up between two players performing at their peak is a rarity.

Considering Klaasen’s significance to Sunrisers, Mumbai might opt to reserve the majority of Jasprit Bumrah’s overs for when he’s at the crease. They are likely to limit the amount of spin bowling to Klaasen, especially since the beginning of 2023, where he boasts an average of 148.5 and a strike rate of 193 against spin in T20 cricket. However, Klaasen is no slouch against pace either. He maintains a career strike rate of 148.45 against fast bowlers, as evidenced by his dispatching of Mitchell Starc for three sixes in an over last Saturday.

Bumrah, typically, stands out in his own league. Following his absence in IPL 2023 due to a back injury, he returned to the league with an impressive spell of 3 for 14 in Mumbai’s season opener against Gujarat Titans, despite bowling two of his overs during the death overs. This sets the stage for an enticing battle with Klaasen, as both Mumbai and Sunrisers aim for their first points of IPL 2024.


Over the past couple of years, Heinrich Klaasen of Sunrisers Hyderabad has transformed into one of the most formidable hitters in T20 cricket. He emerged as their top-scorer in IPL 2023, amassing 448 runs at a strike rate of 177. Klaasen has kicked off 2024 with an impressive display at Eden Gardens, where his aggressive knock of 63 runs off 29 balls nearly overshadowed Andre Russell’s performance. While the other SRH batters made decent starts against Kolkata Knight Riders, Klaasen was the primary reason they remained competitive in the chase for as long as they did.
