The 42nd match of the IPL will see the top-ranked team meet the bottom-ranked one. Delhi Daredevils host Sunrisers Hyderabad at Feroz Shah Kotla tomorrow. This match may not have much significance for playoffs calculations. Sunrisers have qualified and Daredevils have no chances of qualification, for all practical purposes. Still, the match could see some explosive action. Daredevils have a fearsome line-up of young stroke makers, while Sunrisers boast of the most miserly bowlers in the tournament.
Delhi Daredevils – Preview
Delhi Daredevils are paying the price for a poor start. At the moment, they are a formidable side, especially in batting. If they can improve their bowling, they can beat any team. Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant have emerged as the future of Indian batting. The problem with them is that they do not have the back-up bowlers to support Trent Boult.
It will be fascinating to see the young batsmen tackle the seasoned and in-form bowlers of Sunrisers. Back them for cricket betting? No. Not when Sunrisers are in such great form.
Hyderabad Sunrisers – Preview
Everything is going for them at the moment. Kane Williamson is leading from the front with the bat and with tactically supreme moves on the field. Their batting is a bit thin, especially with the poor form of Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey. However, they do have the bowling to defend even modest totals.
Prediction for cricket betting: It is hard to bet against Sunrisers, even though Daredevils batsmen capture the imagination. Expect Hyderabad Sunrisers to win somehow.
