Kings XI Punjab run into Sunrisers Hyderabad at Mohali tomorrow. This will be the Punjab side’s final actual home match. After this their home matches will be held at Holkar Stadium at Indore. It is because of logistical constraints: Amritsar Airport, which is the nearest to the ground, has been shut down for maintenance.
Sunrisers have easily been the best team in the IPL so far. They are at the top of the points table, having won all their three matches. The reason for their success is their fabulous bowling. Pace and spin – the Hyderabad team has the right combination. They will surely start favourites for cricket betting for tomorrow’s match.
Kings XI Punjab – Preview
Kings XI have won two of their three games. Their batting, led scintillatingly by KL Rahul, has been explosive. With Chris Gayle finding his six-hitting rhythm the other day, Kings XI batting firepower could destroy most teams. However, their bowling has looked innocuous at times. Spinners are doing a decent job. But all their fast bowlers – Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma and Barinder Sran – have struggled.
Prediction for cricket betting? Well, their batsmen are facing the toughest bowling attack of the tournament. It could be difficult for them to win this match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – Preview
Sunrisers are fast emerging as a flawless team. Their batting has been really good, and bowling has been excellent. Based on the early form, they must be considered as one of the title contenders. Apart from the match against Mumbai Indians, which they won in the final ball of the 20th over rather dramatically, they have dominated the opponents. Their spinners Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan are making it hard for the batsmen. But the best thing about them is that they playing well as a unit.
Prediction for online betting: Sunrisers to win.
