Adding to everyone’s highest thrilling tides, SunRisers Hyderabad also finished their innings at 162 runs when Manish Pandey sent Hardik Pandya for a six off the last ball. That was how a goose-bump stricken super-over had its foundation.

MI vs SRH Match Prediction
It doubtlessly becomes the loudest clash of titans when SRH takes on MI. There is one side of David Warner led a team that never falls short of making its impact in every single season. The other side is captained by other run-machine Rohit Sharma that holds the most value and most consistent performance in IPL history. When those two teams take on, it is impossible to weigh one team over the other. If it’s a David Warner day, then nothing in the world can stop him. And if it’s the day when MI is making the best use of its potential then it leaves no cavity for opponents to commit any mistake.

MI vs SRH Head to Head
There has been an interesting phenomenon. Among the SRH and MI there had been total 14 clashes from the arrival of SRH in 2013, both teams SRH and MI have won 7-7 matches each. So when it comes to power balance both have the claim to equal dominance.
During the first IPL for SRH in 2013, twice this clash took place and both managed to win one match. In the year 2014, on 30 April and 12 May again respectively SRH and MI grabbed victory and equaled each other. In 2015, the equation changed and Mumbai Indian found a way to be victors in both matches. Nonetheless, it was the reverse in 2016 when both the matches, on 18 April and 8 May, were taken away by SRH. Then came 2017, and again both grabbed one victory each. Then, for last two seasons, it was SRH in 2018 that grabbed both the matches and MI did the same in 2019 to have both matches under its bag.
SRH is deemed rightly the bowling sides, and thus was the best defender. But it also has David Warner who remains the leading run scorer with an Orange Cap in 2015, 2017, and 2019. David Warner was the team’s leading run-scorer while Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the leading wicket-taker.
Overall, no one is more and no one is less when it comes to SRH Vs MI. They both have proven themselves on every ground. MI is the most balanced batting side in the tournament as is widely claimed. But if there is a bowling side which can bring them on knees and get bowled out on such low scores as 87 or so, it has to be SRH.
