MUMBAI INDIANS VS SUNRISERS HYDERABAD: MI VS SRH HEAD TO HEAD, IPL 2018 MI VS SRH STATISTICAL PREVIEW AND ANALYSIS
In what will be their fourth home game of the season at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, three-time IPL winners Mumbai Indians will host 2016 champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match no. 23 of Indian Premier League season 11 on Tuesday (April 24). The IPL 2018 MI vs SRH match will be an opportunity for Mumbai Indians to avenge their narrow 1-wicket loss against the Sunrisers earlier in the season on April 12. Likewise, the IPL MI vs SRH match will also give a chance to Sunrisers Hyderabad to shrug off their loss against Kings XI Punjab, continue their impressive early-season form and stay atop the points table ahead of the likes of KXIP and KKR. On expected lines, the IPL 2018 SRH vs MI match will certainly be touted as a battle between the SRH bowlers and MI batsmen. Big ticket T20 stalwarts like India’s limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, Evin Lewis, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Mustafizur Rahman, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan and Mitchell McClenaghan are likely to feature in this IPL MI vs SRH match. It must be noted ahead of the IPL SRH vs MI match that Mumbai’s batsmen including captain Rohit, Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav have finally found form in the tournament while Hyderabad’s vaunted bowling attack was taken to cleaners in their last outing against a Chris Gayle-inspired Punjab side. Ahead of this crucial IPL 2018 MI vs SRH match, we bring you the IPL 2018 SRH vs MI statistical preview, including the MI vs SRH Head to Head record. The SRH vs MI Head to Head record has also been analysed in detail below.
MI vs SRH Head to Head Record
The MI vs SRH Head to Head record is listed below:
Number of matches played – 11
Matches won by Mumbai Indians – 5

The above IPL MI vs SRH Head to Head record includes all the 11 matches played between the two teams in the Indian Premier League over the last six years, including the IPL SRH vs MI match in this year’s tournament on April 12 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
As can be seen from the SRH vs MI Head to Head record above, Tuesday’s meeting between the two sides will only be their 12th meeting in the IPL. Out of the 6 previous matches, Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium has hosted 3 IPL MI vs SRH games in the past, while the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad has played host to 6 IPL SRH vs MI matches.
Another key stat to note before the IPL 2018 MI vs SRH match is that Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 4 of their last 5 encounters against Mumbai Indians. The first ever IPL SRH vs MI match was won comfortably by Hyderabad in 2013. Also, it must be noted before the IPL 2018 SRH vs MI match that this will be the second meeting between these two teams in the ongoing IPL 2018 season as they already played the first leg of the tie in Hyderabad on April 12 with SRH winning a close game by one wicket. With an extremely close MI vs SRH head to head record, Tuesday’s IPL MI vs SRH match will be an opportunity for both sides to go out there and improve their respective SRH vs MI Head to Head numbers as well.
IPL 2018 MI vs SRH: Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Statistical Preview
While Sunrisers Hyderabad had a hundred percent record in IPL 2018 before going down by 15 runs in their last match against an inspired Kings XI Punjab side, Mumbai Indians, in rather customary fashion, have made a particularly slow start to the season as they lost their first three games and have a solitary win against RCB so far this year. Therefore the IPL MI vs SRH match will be crucial for both sides as they seek to maintain or build momentum and work towards the ultimate goal of making it to the playoffs stages. Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson and coach Tom Moody will be hoping that their brilliant lineup of bowlers including Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Billy Stanlake, Chris Jordan and Siddarth Kaul can put the disappointment of Mohali behind them and once again fire in tandem in the IPL 2018 SRH vs MI match as they have set the tournament alight in the initial few rounds. Their batting was tested for the first time in the tournament against KXIP but failed to come to the party with key opener Shikhar Dhawan walking off inured in the first over itself.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, will be hoping that captain Rohit Sharma can build on from his ‘back to form’ knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore and inspire a turnaround in the coming weeks. They will also be expecting much more from star players like Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mustafizur Rahman and Kieron Pollard.
