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 finally earned a deserved and dominating victory over CSK in their last match, and would be looking to build on that. 

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.

Punjab Kings

Jonny Bairstow, the explosive wicket-keeper batsman, has finished his necessary quarantine period and will be eligible for this match against the Gujarat Titans. Bairstow has hammered 1038 runs at a remarkable strike rate of 142.19 in his brief IPL stint. The English cricketer has seven fifties and one century in the IPL. Nathan Ellis, the Punjab Kings' right-arm pacer, is currently unavailable due to his participation in Australia's ongoing tour of Pakistan in 2022.

Punjab Kings have all their overseas players available. There are high chances that they may consider bringing in Benny Howell for Odean Smith who is an experienced T20 veteran from Hampshire. He has plenty of variations under his sleeves and is one of the pioneers when it comes to bowling off cutters, leg cutters, and knuckleballs in T20s. He is also a decent hitter lower down the order.

With the firepower of another England keeper Jonny Bairstow at the top of the order, they can certainly go for Benny Howell, who may not be a fierce six-hitter like Odean Smith but provides much better control than Odean Smith with the ball.

PBKS Probable XI: Mayank Agarwal (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, Rishi Dhawan, Benny Howell, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Varun Arora, Arshdeep Singh.

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

PBKS have odds of 1.85 to win this match, which could be quite tempting as they looked really solid in their first 4 games. SRH have only recently won their first two matches but are in good form, and have attractive odds of 2.10 to win this match. 

Top Team Batsman

Punjab Kings have a brilliant opening pair and both of them are the favourites to be their top scorers, with Shikhar Dhawan having odds of 3.00 and Mayank Agarwal’s odds being 3.60.  to be their most consistent batsman and has odds of 3.75.

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.

Highest Opening Partnership

PBKS have a top opening pairing in Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal, and both of them are in form. Hence they are the favourites at 1.80 to have the highest opening partnership, as SRH don't have a consistent opening pair. 

Top Team Bowler

Kagiso Rabada is finally back after making his debut for PBKS and he is instantly the favourite to be their top bowler at 3.50, followed by Arshdeep Singh at 3.75. 

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

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 337.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per 10Cric. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.

Individual Player Betting

  • Shikhar Dhawan to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.87 , which is a tempting bet as he would like to continue with another solid innings. Kane Williamson to score more than 26.5 runs has odds of 1.83 , which is a tempting bet as he is their most consistent batsman.
  • SRH to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.30, which could be attractive odds, especially if their openers get firing. PBKS to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.85, which are great odds with Odean Smith, Shikhar Dhawan, Livingstone and Rajapaksa all capable of clearing the boundary.
  • Kagiso Rabada to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.30, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.40.
