Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad | Top Player Bets to Look Forward to
Kolkata Knight Riders will engage with Sunrisers Hyderabad in match number 8 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, on September 26, Saturday.
Both Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming into this fixture on the back of respective defeats in the hands of Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. This 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has already set a tone with some mouth-watering clashes already. The excitement levels are going off the charts even if the fans are watching these games from the comforts of their homes because of the pandemic. Coming back to what we are supposed to discuss here, both Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are in search of their first victories in IPL 2020 and one of them will be left with two consecutive losses after this game. Time will decide the outcome but meanwhile, I have assorted three of the best player markets from this fixture for you to bet on. Let's take a closer look at these markets, one by one, shall we?
Jonny Bairstow to score at least 26 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad
England’s wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow has started taking charge of things at the top of the order for Sunrisers Hyderabad since the previous season and that kind of has eased a lot of pressure off David Warner, who is his opening partner. Bairstow has been phenomenal in white-ball cricket in the last couple of years and his timing of the cricket ball is the perfect example of how good is his touch at the moment. In the previous season of the Indian Premier League, Bairstow was Sunrisers Hyderabad’s second-highest run scorer with 445 runs against his name at an outstanding average of 55.62. This is only his second year in the glamorous T20 league and he has kicked off in fine fashion with a score of 61 in the first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore a couple of days ago. The last time when he played against Kolkata Knight Riders, Bairstow blistered away to 80 from just 43 balls and he remained unbeaten as well. He has now played 11 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad and has 506 runs to his name at an average of just above 56.0. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Bairstow to score just 26 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders and that should be quite easy for the Englishman!
Expect Sunriser Hyderabad skipper David Warner to score 29 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders
David Warner will be gutted with the way he got out in the first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has been Sunrisers Hyderabad's most prolific run scorer at the top of the order and the devastating opener will be raring to go out there in the middle and get some runs on the board for his team. He was obviously the orange cap holder in the previous season of the Indian Premier League with 692 runs in just 12 matches against his name at an average of 69.20 including 1 century and 8 half century; which means he missed out on fifty plus scores on only three occasions last time around - that is insane! He was the highest run scorer in the 2017 edition of the IPL as well with 641 runs to his name at an average of 58.27. David Warner has notched up 533 runs at an average of 44.42 against Kolkata Knight Riders and needless to say that is the highest runs scored by any batsman from either side in head-to-head encounters. The southpaw is also the fourth highest run scorer in the history of the league with 4712 runs at an average of 42.83. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Warner to score just 29 runs and I feel he may have missed out in the first match, he is unlikely to miss in the upcoming one against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Eoin Morgan to smash at least one six
Before I begin with this particular market - I just want to ask how good Eoin Morgan has been in white-ball cricket in the last couple of years? If you have followed cricket closely you would have known by now that this Dublin-born England captain has a lot of pedigree and he is not someone whom you can keep out of the game for long. Now here we are only going to talk about his six-hitting prowess and it should be quite easy for us to win as it is more or less guaranteed. Morgan might not have fired in the first game for the Knight Riders but he managed to hit a ball out of the park. In the last 6 T20 internationals for England, Eoin Morgan has clobbered 15 sixes, which is an average of more than 2 sixes per game! In 272 T20 innings in his overall career, Morgan has smashed the ball out of the park 286 times and that again is an average of more than one six per match. When Morgan hits the ball, it usually stays hit and that is what we are going to count on during the clash of Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bet 365 is offering odds of just 1.72 for Eoin Morgan to hit at least one six during this fixture and even the odds are suggesting that he is going to make us win!
