Sunrisers Hyderabad v Mumbai Indians: Prediction, Tips and Odds

The 2024 Indian Premier League season is still in its infancy but Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians will be eager to get points on the board after both losing their openers.

Hyderabad sustained a four-run defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders in their first match of the season on Saturday, while Mumbai failed to complete a relatively straightforward run-chase in a six-run loss to Gujarat Titans.

But while Mumbai Indians reached the playoffs of the IPL last year, Sunrisers Hyderabad finished rock bottom of the standings with ten defeats from 14 matches.

Mumbai Indians to win - 4/6

It was seriously tough to get behind Sunrisers Hyderabad in last year's IPL given their dire form but a change of personnel has sparked hope for the new season.

New Zealander Daniel Vettori has now been installed as head coach after the team parted ways with Brian Lara and they will be hoping for an upturn in results in 2024.

But Hyderabad did not get off to the best of starts on Saturday, having allowed opponents Kolkata Knight Riders to clock up 208 runs.

They fell only four runs short in the end but they were unconvincing with the ball as opening pair Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen finished with economy rates of 12.75 and 13.33 respectively.

Mumbai also lost their opener but there were positives to be taken from a match which they should have won.

At one stage they required only 48 runs off 36 balls with seven wickets in hand, having got themselves into a strong position.

And their failure to follow through was likely a mere blip from a team often regarded as slow starters in the IPL.

Jasprit Bumrah was impressive with the ball and there were decent knocks from Rohit Sharma (43) and Dewald Brevis (46) so it was not all bad and they can return to winning ways against Hyderabad on Wednesday.

Jasprit Bumrah top Mumbai Indians bowler - 2/1

The Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad is typically great for batsmen and does little to aid spin-bowlers but pacemen can sometimes get it to work in their favour.

And one player to keep an eye on is the prolific Bumrah.

The Indian ace missed the entirety of the 2023 IPL season but took 15, 21 and 27 wickets in each of the three seasons beforehand.

And he made a fine start to his 2024 tenure with figures of 3-14 off four overs in Mumbai's narrow loss to Gujarat Titans last time out.

Bumrah will be crucial to Mumbai's cause this season and he can make his mark again against the Sunrisers.

Heinrich Klaasen top Sunrisers Hyderabad batter - 15/4

While Bumrah's performance was a positive in Mumbai's loss to Gujarat, it was Heinrich Klaasen who performed the best for Sunrisers Hyderabad last time out.

Batting at five, the wicketkeeper-batsman struck 63 runs off 29 deliveries for Hyderabad with eight sixes contributing to that total.

And that was no fluke with Klaasen having been Hyderabad's standout player with the bat in 2023.

In his 12 IPL innings last season, Klaasen racked up an impressive 448 runs at an average of 49.77 and he struck 25 maximums.

He is a dangerous player in the middle-order and, given the inconsistency of Hyderabad's openers, he is worth a pick at 15/4 to top score for the hosts.
