Sunrisers Hyderbad will host Rajasthan Royals on the third day of the Indian premier League in Hyderabad. Had there not been the sandpaper-gate controversy in the test series between South Africa and Australia, David Warner and Steve Smith would have walked out for toss. As it turned out, both the players are in Australia, in exile from cricket, while Kane Williamson and Ajinkya Rahane will come out for toss.
Despite the Australians’ absence, this remains an interesting prospect for online betting. The odds are really attractive. Check out it right here. If you are new to 12 bet, start an account right now too.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – Preview
They seem to be one of the most balanced teams in the fray. They do not have too many flamboyant stars, but the team is full of quite heroes: Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma and Basil Thampi. Warner was their most glittering star. In his absence, players like Shakib Al Hasan and Carlos Brathwaite will get more prominence.
There is no weakness for this side – either in batting or in bowling. Only thing they probably lack is an out-and-out hard hitter. All their batsmen are gentle stroke makers. You can bank on them for online betting purposes.
Rajasthan Royals – Preview
The team has the potential to go all the way to win the IPL crown. But if a couple of their stars fail, they could end up at the bottom of the table as well. Their overseas players are terrific hitters: Heinrich Klassen, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. But they do have a useful array of Indian talent as well. Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Dhawal Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat. And Rahane is a captain with extra-ordinary tactical knowhow.
Prediction for cricket betting: Sunrisers Hyderabad are likely to win.
