In head-to-head battle both the teams have played 31 matches altogether. Mumbai won 19 matches and Bangalore won 12 matches. This season, Bangalore is a much more stable side than Mumbai.

Read on to find match predictions, MyTeam11 fantasy team tips & team previews.
Skipper Faf du Plessis is leading from the front this season. In his first match, du Plessis hit 88 runs off just 57 runs. Middle-order is an area of concern for the side as Virat Kohli has struggled and the team would want him to add runs with Sherfane Rutherford. However, now that Australian Glenn Maxwell is back into the mix, the batting lineup of Bangalore is expected to cause havoc in the upcoming matches.
The five-time title winners are yet to register their first win in the Indian T20 League. Currently, Mumbai is on the number nine spot on the points table. Rohit Sharma’s off-key performance in the previous matches has been a matter of concern for the Mumbai fans. However, Ishan Kishan has been performing consistently with his bat. Suryakumar Yadav also joined the party in the last match where he scored 52 runs off just 36 balls.
The middle order of the team is a major concern. Kieron Pollard has yet to deliver a decent performance in the season. Mumbai has to come up with new foolproof strategies if they want to move forward in the tournament.

Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy is one of the best pitches to bat on. The team batting first is expected to score over 170 runs. The bowl comes nicely on to the bat with a little bit of bounce. The weather in Pune on 9th April is expected to have a clear sky.

Top Picks for Chennai vs Hyderabad MyTeam11 Match:
Ishan Kishan is a left-handed batter. The young batter has been on-point in his performance with the bat. He has scored two fifties in his three matches. This season Kishan has 149 runs in his bag. Ultimately, Kishan would like to continue his form for the rest of the season.
Faf du Plessis is a right-handed batter and also the skipper of the Bangalore team. He has scored 122 runs with his bat so far in the tournament. With his dominance in the field and with the bat, Faf is surely one of the best players for Bangalore.
Glenn Maxwell is a right-handed batter from Australia. Till now he has played zero matches this season. However, given his performance in last seasons, Maxwell is a threat to all the bowlers in the Indian T20 League.
