Sunrisers Hyderabad – Preview
They have snapped their two-match losing streak with a win over Mumbai Indians. Their bowlers once again found form by defending a low score against the strong and long Mumbai batting line-up. However, Kings XI’s batting much stronger and certainly more explosive. The absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not causing much problem, as Siddarth Kaul and Rashid Khan are leading the attack well.
What Sunrisers need is a new sunrise in their batting. At the moment, only skipper Kane Williamson appears consistent. They need an improved performance with the bat from Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey and Shakib Al Hasan.
If you think they are going to step up, back them in online betting.
Kings XI Punjab – Preview
Skipper R Ashwin has turned this Kings XI team into a fearless and merry unit. They certainly have a power-packed batting unit. If KL Rahul does not get you, Chris Gayle must – that’s how it works. While their batting is dominant, the bowling does at least just enough to win matches. Still, the lack of a big go-to fast bowler could hurt their chances in the later stages.
They are doing well now. It would not be a surprise if they just wallop Sunrisers who are playing at home. The momentum is with the visitors.
Prediction for cricket betting: Kings XI Punjab start favourites here. They have already defeated the Hyderabad side in the tournament. An encore is very much possible.
