IPL 2022: Match 65, MI vs SRH Match Prediction – Who will win today’s IPL match between Mumbai and Hyderabad?
Sunrisers Hyderabad has been on a five-game losing streak and hanging by a thread in the tournament still.
Updated - May 17, 2022 6:22 pm
Mumbai Indians will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next encounter at the Wankhede Stadium. The Rohit Sharma-led side is coming off a comfortable victory against the Chennai Super Kings in their previous game despite a hiccup while chasing at the start. With just three wins in 12 games, Mumbai Indians haven’t had much to be delighted about, and they will be looking to sign off the season with a win.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have gone into a shell after starting so well and have lost all their last five games on the trot. The Kane Williamson-led side has a negative run rate as well and hence, they will need to win their remaining two games by a big margin and hope for the other results to go their way as well.
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

The Wankhede Stadium has been a low-scoring venue in the last couple of games, and Mumbai Indians will be confident after their bowling performance at the venue in their previous game. The skipper that wins the toss will be looking to bat first and post a total near the 150 mark, which could be match-winning considering the scoreboard pressure.
Probable Playing XIs for MI vs SRH
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Tristan Stubbs, Ramandeep Singh, Tim David, Daniel Sams, Kumar Kartikeya, Hrithik Shokeen, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith
Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match
Tilak Varma has played some high-quality knocks in the tournament in just his first season and he definitely is one of the bright prospects for the Mumbai Indians going forward. The left-hander has amassed 368 runs in 12 games so far this season and stepped up yet again in a crucial situation in the previous game against CSK with an unbeaten 32-ball 34 to steer his side home.
Probable best bowler of the Match
Jasprit Bumrah was outstanding with the new ball for the Mumbai Indians in the previous game and he finished with 1/12 in his three overs with one maiden as well. The right-arm quick generated good speeds and was ready to swing the ball as well both ways. He has certainly found the rhythm going and will be a key figure in the upcoming fixture as well.
