The scramble to finish in the top four is getting intense as the league moves into the second half. While Chennai Super Kings have floated to the top and two teams with inertia working against them have settled at the bottom, others are still moving up and down randomly in Brownian motion. Sunrisers Hyderabad were at the top a week ago, but after two away losses they have descended to No. 5. They have a chance to catch the updraught again when they face a strong Mumbai Indians team at their home venue.

Most teams this year have thrived in home conditions and Sunrisers are no different - they have won three out of three in Hyderabad on the back of some inspiring spells by their all-round bowling unit even after repeated batting collapses. With the inclusion of Shikhar Dhawan and Darren Sammy, the line-up appears - at least on paper - a bit spunkier. If they can find a way to extend the aggression shown by their bowlers to their batting - and fielding - they can continue springing surprises. The only problem that remains to be solved is their constant juggling of the captaincy.

Mumbai Indians' home record is immaculate, but playing away, they have blown hot and cold. Their batting was dismal in Jaipur and their bowlers appeared listless in Delhi. However, they seem to have bumped into the right formula under the new leadership of Rohit Sharma and have won three consecutive matches, although that has neatly covered up the lack of form of their 40-year-old opener. Can they pull up a similar act without the Mumbai crowd behind them?

PunterPolls Prediction

Punters are doing exceptionally well now a days and as we have mentioned earlier, If you are with punters then your predictions is being proving correct at-least 8 out of 10 times.  Yesterday what we have found over the facebook that most of the people are talking about Pune Warriors to win the match only because they think that Pune was playing at their home ground and have good batsmen. But as our experts said, they are lacking as far as captaincy is concern. A team can perform better even though they do have average players like Sunrisers Hydrabad.

Sunrisers have lost couple of games but this is the team who have won quite a few very close games. This team is playing as a unit and if they manage to include Sammy and T.Perera along with Sangakara (instead of C.White), this team does have strength to beat any team.

MI have won three matches on the trot including an away match against KKR. Looking at the trend, home advantage is playing a crucial role in the tournament and this could be the reason that punters are bit confuse about predicting the team today. By this time only 55% punters are supporting Mumbai Indians and that is to close.

Our experts believe MI do have an edge especially if they bat first. But on this slow pitch, if they will have ask to chase the total around 150, Sunrisers is the team to bank upon.
