IPL 2019, MI vs SRH: Head-to-head record, probable XI and players to watch out for
On 2nd May, the Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Mumbai Indians for the second time in IPL 2019, this time in Mumbai. MI have seven wins from 12 games and are currently third in the IPL points table, while SRH are in fourth spot with six wins from 12 outings.
After two consecutive defeats against the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals, the Sunrisers will be relieved after their win over the Kings XI Punjab on Monday. But the absence of David Warner, who has left for the World Cup preparations, might affect them in a big way.
Meanwhile the Mumbai Indians suffered a loss against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game. But what will motivate Mumbai will be the fact that a win in this game can make them the table toppers .
These two teams have played each other 13 times in the past. SRH have emerged victorious in 7 games, while the Mumbai Indians have managed to win six times.
When these two teams met earlier in the season in Hyderabad, Mumbai won the match by 40 runs,.
