MI vs SRH Pitch Report for IPL 2023 Match at Wankhede Stadium Mumbai

The 69th match of the ongoing 16th season of the Indian Premier League will take place between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium tomorrow.

A victory tomorrow for MI would not guarantee them a place in the playoffs, but it is a must-win game for them nonetheless. As for SRH, their campaign this season is already over, and apart from playing their final league match for pride they would also like to take the Indians along with them beyond the exit gate.

Having chased targets in excess of the 200+ mark for fun lately, Mumbai were humbled by Lucknow Super Giants during their previous league match. Despite a rollicking start to the 178-run chase, they had ultimately fallen short of the target by 5 runs. The result also made sure that their fate with regard to further stay in the tournament would no longer remain in their own hands.

SRH, on the other hand, were as if shown an overall performance report by Royal Challengers Bangalore during their previous match. Despite a Heinrich Klassen maiden IPL century, the Sunrisers bowlers yet again let the team down as Bangalore chased the target down with four deliveries to spare.

MI vs SRH Pitch Report

During the previous IPL 2023 match at the Wankhede Stadium, teams Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans had collective amassed 409 runs off 40 overs, in what turned out to be excellent conditions for the batters. Across the six league matches here, six times have teams been able to surpass the 200-run mark.

“Good wicket to bat on. We have seen 200+ have been chased here, but SKY was unbelievable,” Gujarat Titans allrounder Rashid Khan had remarked on the nature of Wankhede Stadium pitch, after Suryakumar Yadav had scored his maiden IPL century.

The average score here in IPL 2023 so far has been 201.4 runs, which is indicative enough of what to expect from the pitch tomorrow afternoon. All in all, any total below the 200-run mark might not be enough for the side batting first.
