Today’s IPL match is between hosts Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Kane Williamson’s Sunrisers are without David Warner for the first time this season, and will hope to qualify for the playoffs today. They are at fourth place on the IPL 2019 points table with 12 points, just below Mumbai who have 14 points.

If Rohit Sharma’s MI can win one of their remaining two home matches, they will stay in the top four and progress to the playoffs.

MI vs SRH PREDICTION: 

Rohit is due a score, and given his success at the back end of the IPL there is reason to believe that he will cash in today against SRH. If that happens, and Hardik Pandya maintains his form, expect Mumbai Indians to win and seal their playoffs berth.
