SRH haven’t opened their account in IPL so far and they have lost all the matches (5 games) they have played in Chennai venue. SRH will be heavily dependent on Rashid Khan and David Warner to win the match while on the other hand Mumbai Indians has all it bases covered in the team with all-round attack in batting and bowling.
It will be interesting to see if SRH want to persist with Manish Pandey or bring some of the new face like Priyam Garg (or) Virat Singh while Kane Williamson can be included in the team in place of Jonny Bairstow to strengthen the middle order of SRH lineup. Mumbai Indians middle order batting hasn’t fired in the first two games and they will be expected to go on the top in this game against SRH.
