Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians Betting Tips 04/05/2021

Teams Status

Sunrisers Hyderabad

At exactly the halfway mark, with each team having played seven matches each, Sunrisers Hyderabad are in a miss, having won just once all season.

In a desperate move to curtail the slide, the Sunrisers think tank made arguably the boldest mid-season move of IPL history, stripping David Warner of the captaincy and handing it to Kane Williamson – a demotion that reportedly left Warner “shocked and disappointed”.

The leadership switch was supposed to save Hyderabad’s season and give them an instant boost but that did not happen as under Williamson, they were just as woeful on Sunday, conceding 220 runs to a Jos Buttler-inspired Rajasthan and losing by 55 runs.

The defeat means that this is now the Sunrisers’ worst ever start to an IPL campaign. They could soon be on the verge of becoming the first side to crash out of playoffs contention, if their results do not improve immediately.

Mumbai Indians

While SRH failed to chase their 221-run target against Rajasthan, Mumbai, in their last game, were successful in tracking down their 219-run target against Chennai Super Kings.

The run chase, the second-highest of IPL history, was the doing of Kieron Pollard, who walked in when the score was 81-3 in the 10th over. Pollard smashed an unbeaten 34-ball 87 and helped Mumbai score an unbelievable 138 off the final 10 overs as boundaries rained at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

It was Mumbai’s second-straight chase win and it appears that the reigning champions are finally warmed up and raring to head towards the business end of the tournament.

Their top two of Quintin de Kock and Rohit Sharma are finding runs but still contributing match-winnings knocks. If they do, coupled with Pollard at the lower end, Mumbai could become a nightmare for others.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win @ 2.50

We’ve said it in one of the previous tips and we’ll say it again. Sunrisers Hyderabad are not as bad as their results make them out. Just check their names: Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow, David Warner, Rashid Khan. It is still takes a lot of courage to advocate an upset against defending champions, but considering that the oddsmakers have factored in Sunrisers struggles in the odds and made them big underdog, is precisely what makes this bet so tempting.

Tip: Jonny Bairstow to score 50 runs – Yes @ 3.5

The last time these two met, Sunrisers were set a modest 151-run target but even that proved too steep for their batsmen. The run chase failed but due to no fault of Jonny Bairstow, whose 43 off 22 had given Hyderabad just the start they needed. He was unlucky to miss out on a half century when he got hit wicket and things went pear-shaped for SRH from that point on. Until that point, Bairstow was on a roll and could have won his side the match by himself. We think he could continue the same touch in a repeat of that fixture.

Conclusion

Both these sides have faced each other 17 times, of which Mumbai have won nine and Hyderabad eight. We see the record leveling up after the next meet.
