Former champions Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad will play the 8th match of Indian Premier League 2024 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday. 

Both teams endured absolute thrillers in their first match of the season and ended up on the wrong side of the result. MI started well chasing 169 against GT but slipped midway and lost by just 6 runs. SRH on the other hand looked done chasing 210 against KKR but a Heinrich Klassen masterclass put them in touching distance of the mammoth chase. 

As far as these two teams are concerned, they last met in Match 68 of the group stage of IPL 2023 where MI powered mainly by a Cameron Green hundred chased down a target of 201 in just 18 overs. 

Both teams will be looking to put the agonising losses behind them and get their season back on track.

X-Factors for SRH vs MI:

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

Heinrich Klaasen has been in the form of his life since last year's IPL and that was reflected in SRH's first game against KKR. Klaasen all by himself managed to turn a hopeless situation into a near-winnable one. So if he gets going, MI are in a world of trouble.

Mumbai Indians:

The biggest reason that MI were able to restrict GT to 169 was Jasprit Bumrah. While MI couldn't get over the line, Bumrah's bowling performance will bring hope to MI that they could stop the firepower in SRH's batting.
