It is quite surprising how we have ignored this player while placing bets, even though Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the most consistent players for Mumbai Indians in the 2020 IPL and quite unsurprisingly, he is their highest run-getter this season. Having played seven matches so far, the right-hander has scored a total of 233 runs, at a rate of 38.83 runs per innings, having registered at least 22 runs in four of those matches. The batsman has been in terrific form in the past year, with him amassing a total of 392 runs in 11 matches, averaging 56 runs per innings during the 2019-20 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, having scored more than 21 runs in six of those games.
In the last five matches against Kolkata Knight Riders, the batsman has scored a total of 214 runs (47, 46 n.o, 26, 36, 59), maintaining an average of 53.5 runs per innings, having scored north of 21 in each of those games. Overall, in 156 T20s he played so far in his career, Suryakumar has racked up a total of 3245 runs, scoring at a rate of 31.82 runs per innings, which is more than impressive. With odds of 1.83 offered for this deal, we ought to cash in on the opportunity.
There is a guaranteed bet for you, at least the past records suggest so, with the South African reputed to be a great striker of the cricket ball. In seven matches played so far this season, Quinton de Kock has struck a total of 17 boundaries, at a rate of 2.42 hits per match, but managed to hit at least 3 in four of those matches. Overall, he has been in good form in the recent past, with him hitting 31 boundaries in nine matches, at a rate of 3.44 hits per innings during the 2019 Mzansi Super League - the last domestic T20 tournament he featured in, having struck at least 3 in eight of the above-mentioned matches.
Even in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League, the southpaw registered a total of 45 boundaries in 16 matches, at a rate of almost 3 strikes per match. Having played five matches in Abu Dhabi this season, the Protean has sent the ball to the ropes a total of 12 times, having hit at least 3 in three of those matches. Overall, in 191 T20 matches, he has featured in, De Kock has struck a mammoth 601 boundaries, averaging 3.14 per match. I have already placed by bet. What about you?
The youngster may not have showcased his potential to the greatest extent, but he is oozing with confidence at present. Having played seven matches in the season so far, the batsman has scored a total of 254 runs, at a rate of 42.33 runs per innings, having scored at least 23 runs in five of those matches. If you think this is a fluke, you are mistaken for sure. Even in the previous edition of the IPL, the right-hander scored a total of 296 runs in 14 matches, averaging 32.88 runs per innings.
In the four matches he has played at the venue so far, the opener has scored a total of 145 runs, at a rate of 36.25 runs per match, which also supports our cause. Overall, in his 34-match IPL career so far, the batsman has amassed a total of 753 runs, averaging 35.85 runs per innings, which is also impressive. We are backing him to score just 23 runs in the upcoming, which should not be a daunting task for the batsman. What are you waiting for? Place your bets fast.
