It all comes down to the final few IPL group matches to determine who will advance to the IPL Playoffs. The Mumbai Indians will be hoping for some assistance from the Rajasthan Royals, who are playing the Kolkata Knight Riders before this match.
If RR defeats KKR, Mumbai must defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad in order to qualify. If, on the other hand, KKR wins, Mumbai would not only need to win, but also improve its net run-rate so dramatically that it would be unrealistic.
We also don’t want to make the mistake of taking SRH for granted as bettors. They defeated RCB in their previous match and will look to win again against MI to cap off their IPL 2021 campaign.
On October 8, 2021, the match will be held at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians Team Previews
The previous match between SRH and RCB was won by SRH due to a strong bowling performance and poor batting by RCB. When you look at the SRH scorecard for that match, it doesn’t appear to be a dramatic turnaround.
Jason Roy and Kane Williamson had the most points, and none of their other local players were able to contribute. For quite some time, SRH has been plagued by the same issue. Mumbai Indians have a stronger bowling attack and will undoubtedly look to exploit this batting weakness.
The bowling was consistent and yielded regular wickets. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled well under pressure at the end, Rashid Khan was difficult to deal with in the middle overs, and Umran Malik produced impressive pace once again.
SRH is a dangerous team, but it pales in comparison to what MI brings to the table. MI’s best chance of winning this match is through individual brilliance or something truly awful.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Squad
Jason Roy, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Wriddhiman Saha (w), Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Umran Malik, Shreevats Goswami, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammad Nabi, Jagadeesha Suchith, Shahbaz Nadeem, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Virat Singh, David Warner, Basil Thampi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Predicted XI: Jason Roy/David Warner, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (C), Priyam Garg, Jason Holder, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Umran Malik
The Mumbai Indians face a difficult challenge. They would prefer to play solely for victory, with no regard for the net run rate, but that is not possible. MI switched things up in the previous game, and it paid off.
The batting lineup of Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and the potent middle order of Pandya, Pollard, and Neesham is tremendous. They should be able to score enough runs to win.
MI has no choice but to play aggressively, so betting markets for Most Sixes, Most Fours, and Highest Score in 1-6 Overs are all viable options.
MI’s bowling attack is world-class, and they will go all out against SRH. We believe they will bring back Rahul Chahar instead of Jayant Yadav for this match.
Mumbai Indians Squad
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Saurabh Tiwary, Kieron Pollard, James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, Adam Milne, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Aditya Tare, Dhawal Kulkarni, Chris Lynn, Roosh Kalaria, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Marco Jansen, Yudhvir Singh
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians Toss Prediction
The team that wins the toss will undoubtedly field first.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Since the start of the second leg, the surface in Abu Dhabi has improved. It has some bounce to it, but it is still slow by nature. The dew also falls from time to time, which improves batting in the second inning. The highest-scoring match of the UAE leg of the IPL 2021 was played in Abu Dhabi, so there could be more fireworks.
