The Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Mumbai Indians are two big names in cricket. However, when looking at SRH vs MI, the team from Mumbai stands out as they have tasted a lot of success in the past, whereas the Sunrisers have fallen short on several occasions. In 2020 they go to battle again, with the Mumbai Indians coming into this game as the reigning IPL champions.
The Sunrisers have one title to their name, which came back in 2016. Since then they have reached the final again but were beaten comprehensively in 2018 by the Chennai Super Kings. They play their games at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, and this is where they need to be at their absolute best if they are to throw down a challenge for the 2020 IPL title.
Last 5 matches:
SRH vs MI
The script for the Mumbai Indian is simple to write; they need to repeat what happened last season. They have been a dominating force in the IPL, and their title win last season was their fourth overall. The Indians play their home games at the Wankhede Stadium, a place that has seen so much success over the years for this franchise. Will 2020 be another one of those?
SRH vs MI 2018
If the thrilling SRH vs MI 2018 game is anything to go by, we are in for a treat in 2020. These two shared a fantastic 40 overs of cricket at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium two years ago, with the Sunrisers eventually coming out on top, winning with the last ball of the game and with only one wicket remaining.
The Mumbai Indians batted first in this one and put a modest total on the board of 147/8. Evin Lewis top-scored for them, but he only managed 29 from 17 balls, while Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav also made small contributions. Rashid Khan kept things tight with the ball to help his team; his game figures were 1/13 from four overs, something that contributed to him winning the man of the match award.
The Sunrisers reply was built around Shikhar Dhawan, who scored an impressive 45 from 28 deliveries to set his team up. Wickets kept falling though, with Mayank Markande taking four of them in a brilliant bowling performance for the Indians. However, it was the Sunrisers that came out on top in the end, Billy Stanlake with the winning runs for his team as he scored a four with the final ball of the game.
SRH vs MI 2019
The SRH vs MI 2019 game did not have the same tension as the 2018 game, but we did see a fantastic bowling performance by one play. That player was Alzarri Joseph, and he took six wickets for 12 runs for the Mumbai Indians, to help them claim a comfortable victory.
The Indians went out to bat first, and in tough conditions, they made a respectable 136/7 from their 20 overs. Kieron Pollard was involved heavily with an unbeaten 46 from 26 balls. It was then the turn of the Sunrisers to try and beat that, but Alzarri Joseph have very different ideas. The team from Hyderabad were bowled out for just 96 in this game, Deepak Hooda finished as their top scorer with just 20 to show how bad the entire team played. They couldn’t handle man of the match Joseph, who ripped through them in excellent style. Quite surprising really since the Sunrisers Hyderabad Team 2019 was full of talented batsman like Warner, Guptill and Williamson.

SRH vs MI Head to Head
The SRH vs MI head to head statistics are really interesting to look at ahead of the clash in 2020 between these two; there is absolutely nothing to split them going into the new season.
Games played: 14
Sunrisers Hyderabad wins: 7
Mumbai Indians wins: 7
As you can see from the figures above, these two are tied right now, which may be a little surprise to some people. Although they have consistently put out good teams over the years in the IPL, the Mumbai Indians have had far more success as far as title wins go, but that hasn’t translated in the head to head games between these teams. The recent form is interesting, and it is the Sunrisers that have the edge there. The Indians won both meetings in 2019, but despite that, the Sunrisers have won five of the last eight meetings. Are we seeing the advantage swing back to Mumbai after those wins last season, or can the Sunrisers go ahead in 2020?
