Team News And Tournament So Far

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

Sunrisers Hyderabad's top four batsmen were removed for single-digit scores at 37/5 in their 211-run chase against Rajasthan Royals. Aiden Markram's (57* runs), Wahington Sundar's (40 runs), and Romario Shepherd's (24 runs) contributions helped them reach 149/8 in 20 overs. Players with more experience, such as Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, and Rahul Tripathi, must step up with the bat.

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly for 4-0-29-1 and was unlucky not to earn additional wickets owing to no-balls. Romario Shepherd, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan each grabbed five wickets but came at a cost. The spin department is mainly reliant on Washington Sundar, with assistance from Abdul Samad, Aiden Markram, and Abhishek Sharma.

SRH are the form team of the league, having started pathetically, but now have won 4 matches in a row. 

SunRisers Hyderabad’s Predicted XI:- Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik.

Royal Challengers Bangalore 

RCB started the season poory despite posting a mammoth score against Punjab Kings. However, their bowling was torn apart by the PBKS batsmen and they chased down 206. In the second game, RCB almost suffered a humiliating defeat as they struggled to chase down a very low score set up by KKR, but eventually managed to record their first win of the season. 

Glenn Maxwell, who recently married, will miss at least the first two games of Royal Challengers Bangalore, while his Australian counterparts Josh Hazlewood and Jason Behrendorff will miss the first three games since the Australian players would not be available until April 6.

RCB have managed to find the right balance in recent times, and managed convinving wins over rivals MI and DC in their previous matches, to make it 5 wins in 7 matches, tied on points with GT.

RCB Probable XI - Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Siddharth Kaul, Mohammed Siraj. 

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

RCB are the favourites to win this match at 1.85, due to their sudden upturn in form and consecutive victories over MI and DC. The leam looks balanced and up for it. SRH meanwhile are in decent form themselves with 4 consecutive wins, however they are still 2.10 to win this, which are tempting odds. 

Top Team Batsman

SRH captain Kane Williamson is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 3.60. His opening partner Markram has odds of 4.00. Nicholas Pooran has odds of 5.50 to be the top batsman.

RCB opener FAF Du Plessis is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 2.87. He played a brilliant innings in the first game but it went in vain eventually. His opening partner Virat Kohli has odds of 3.00. Dinesh Karthik has odds of 6.00 to be the top batsman.

Highest Opening Partnership

RCB have a decent opening pair in Anuj Rawat and FAF Du Plessis, who have given a few good starts and have odds of 1.80 to have the highest opening partnership.

Top Team Bowler

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is SRH’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.00, followed by Natarajan at 4.25.  

Last year’s top wicket-taker Harshal Patel is RCB’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.50, followed by Hasaranga at 4.00.

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 341.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per Dafabet. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.

Individual Player Betting

  • Du Plessis to score more than 29.5 runs against his former team has odds of 1.81, and it’s a solid bet as he is one of the best batsmen in the league and also in form. Rahul Tripathi to score more than 26.5 runs has odds of 1.83 , which is a tempting bet as he is their most consistent batsman.

  • RCB to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.90, which can be very tempting with Du Plessis, Kohli, Karthik and Rutherford all capable of clearing the boundary. SRH to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.10 , which could be attractive odds, especially if their openers get firing.
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.50, while Hasaranga to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.10.
