The two teams that have struggled in the Indian Premier League so far - Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad, will lock horns at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium this Friday evening. The match will be crucial for both sides - with a win to get them back on track in the championship, while a loss would be detrimental to their title hopes. Whatever the result might be, we are in for a treat once the match starts. While our eyes will always be on the concerned match, we should also take out some time and invest on the top three bets from the match to win handsome rewards by the end of the day.
I have already assorted the top three deals for you and listed them below. Just go through my analysis and invest accordingly to get richer by the end of the match.
When you have the likes of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow opening the innings, runs are expected to flow in the opening six overs. Not only that, but the pair has put up exceptional opening partnerships in the past, with them already having the better start in two of the three matches this season - having scored 119 runs (almost 40 runs per match), while conceding 98 runs in the same. Even in the last five matches of the previous season, they have had the better opening stand in three of those games, with the piling up 195 runs (48.75 runs per innings) while shipping in just 114 runs on the contrary.
Moreover, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have opened the batting line-up 13 times together in IPL history for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, with them having the better opening stand on 10 occasions, having scored a mammoth 910 runs, averaging 70 runs per innings, while letting in just 321 runs (24.6 per innings). Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings have been outscored in two of their three matches for the opening stand this season, with them scoring 84 runs and conceding 151 runs. What are you waiting for? Just place your bets.
This could have well been the other way round, but the Indian Premier League is being played in the UAE this season, which should be kept in mind. In the three matches played so far, Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit a total of 11 sixes (4, 4, 3), having failed to score six in each of those games. If we look at the past three H2H matches against Chennai Super Kings, they have struck 18 sixes (6, 3, 6, 4), at a rate of 4.5 per match, with them hitting less than six in two of those games.
Coming to the venue, the Dubai International Stadium is one of the bigger grounds in the 2020 Indian Premier League, with few sixes hit so far, except for one match. For the records, in the 10 innings played so far at the particular venue, only five times have a team hit more than five sixes, which surely tells us a tale. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings have not conceded more than five sixes in two of their three matches this season. The Sunrisers managed to hit only 3 sixes in the only match they have played at the venue this season. With all the evidence pointing to one direction, it would be foolish not to invest on this particular bet.
Looking at the points table, there is nothing much to differentiate between these two sides, with both earning three points each by virtue of their respective wins. But, historically, Chennai Super Kings have owned the fixture, with winning 10 of the last 13 H2H matches between these two sides. The last match Sunrisers Hyderabad won was during the 2019 IPL at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, in front of their own fans, which is not the case for now. Even with the teams at their disposal, Chennai Super Kings looks a lot more balanced.
The MS Dhoni-led team not only finished at the second position in the points table during the 2019 IPL, but also missed the trophy by a whisker, losing to Mumbai Indians in the final. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad just managed to stay in the top four by virtue of a better run-rate than Kolkata Knight Riders. The last time these two teams played at a neutral venue was back in 2014, at Sharjah, a match which Chennai Super Kings won by five wickets. With handsome odds on offer, we should definitely invest on this particular bet.
