Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kolkata Knight Riders – Match Preview

The head-to-head record between these two sides is an equal one. Both teams have won seven of their last 14 meetings.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Sunday, 18 October 2020

Start time: 15:30 IST (10:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This Abu Dhabi pitch has been a little harder to read compared to the other grounds in use in the UAE. Teams have been averaging just over 180 here and anything around that total now would be competitive.

Weather conditions: We can expect another bright day in Abu Dhabi. There is no cloud cover or rain forecast and temperatures should be around 30 degrees.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

The Sunrisers are having to make do without the injured Mitchell Marsh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

It is unlikely they will make too many changes despite recent defeats. Jonny Bairstow and David Warner will open if fit and their bowling attack took wickets last time too.

For the Knight Riders, they will have more decisions to make at the top of the order. Rahul Tripathi was dropped down to accommodate Tom Banton against RCB.

Tripathi had previously replaced all-rounder Sunil Narine, who could now see more action despite being reported for a suspect action against KXIP and missing the RCB defeat.

Shubman Gill is likely to stay at the top after a solid campaign so far.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

We could well be in for another treat here if this one is as close as the bookmakers are predicting.

With that in mind, it could be worth looking at the other markets on offer when trying to find a value bet.

Back Gill to Continue Form with the Bat

Shubman Gill has been a really bright spark for KKR this season.

He looks a great bet to be his team’s top batsman, especially given his consistency.

Gill hit 57 against KXIP and backed that up with 34 against RCB. You feel he might just be on the brink of a big score.

With his opening partner being switched around a lot this IPL, he’s the most likely to be guaranteed a spot at the top.

He can be backed at 3.75 with 22Bet to be Kolkata’s top batsman.

Williamson offering Value for Sunrisers

Kane Williamson looks to be finding form after a quiet IPL so far.

The New Zealand skipper hit a half-century last time out against CSK and can build on that now.

He offers value at a price of 4.5 with 22Bet, especially with all focus on Hyderabad’s openers Bairstow and Warner. If one should fail early enough then Williamson could well have another chance to shine.

Highest Opening Partnership for SRH

Hyderabad might be inconsistent this season but the opening partnership of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner has picked up where it left off from last year’s IPL.

Given the chopping and changing of the Kolkata pairing at the top, backing SRH to have the better opening partnership looks a good bet.

SHR can be backed at 1.83 with 22Bet to achieve that goal.
