Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab – Betting Tips and Prediction
Both of these sides have already shown some good moments in this tournament despite sitting in the bottom two places of the IPL group stage.
You feel there is much more to come from them both, especially given their impressive top orders.
Back Sunrisers to Win the Match
It is Sunrisers who traditionally dominate this fixture and siding with them to get back on track looks the best bet in the outright market at 1.8 with 10CRIC
They have a fearsome opening pair in David Warner and Jonny Bairstow and the duo can again give SH a solid foundation to build on.
While their bowling attack has been weakened with the loss of Kumar, they should be able to manage his absence. Rashid Khan can again cause problems to the KXIP line-up.
Hyderabad’s win over Delhi Capitals is a stand-out performance and one that shows just what this side is capable of when everything clicks for them.
However, there are plenty of other markets to also look at ahead of this contest.
Back Pooran for Top KXIP Batsman
Nicholas Pooran has done well in support of a strong KXIP top order in the opening games of this year’s IPL.
He has got starts in many of his recent innings without going on. Despite the fact KL Rahul has been in fine form, the value selection in the top KXIP batsman market could be the West Indian.
Should Kings XI lose early wickets then he’s perfectly placed to strike. His price of 5.5 with 22Bet also looks like a value play.
Rashid Khan to be Named Man of the Match
Afghan star Rashid Khan would have liked more of an impact in the first few games but this could be his time to shine.
He is a huge threat with the ball but could also add a few vital runs if required. At some stage this IPL he’ll burst to life with an outstanding individual performance.
Backing him to get the man of the match award is a longshot but still a bet worth making at 11.00 with bet365.
