Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab are struggling at the moment, with them already on the verge of losing out on a possible knock-out berth. Even though Sunrisers have won two of their five matches, Kings XI Punjab only have two points in their kitty, from a win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore early on in the season. Both sides are in desperate need of a win, which makes this contest a one to watch out for. Apart from enjoying the match on our Television screens, we have a great opportunity to make some money
I have already handpicked the top three bets for you from the upcoming match and listed them below. Just go through them and invest strategically to win loads of money by the end of the match.
It is not that Kings XI Punjab have many big hitters in their squad, but they are certainly doing a better job than Sunrisers Hyderabad. So far, Kings XI Punjab have hit a total of 33 sixes, at a rate of 6.6 per match, with their opponents outnumbering them in just two occasions. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit a total of just 20 sixes, averaging just four sixes per match, with them never hitting more than their opponents in any of those matches, which surely tells us a tale. But before you invest money on this, let’s go through some more facts.
Even in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League, Kings XI Punjab hit a total of 110 sixes in just 14 matches, at a rate of 7.85 hits per match, compared to Sunrisers Hyderabad's 81 sixes in 15 matches (5.4 hits per match). In the past four H2H matches between these two sides, Kings XI Punjab have also had the upper hand, hitting a total of 32 sixes (6.4 per match), while shipping just 18 sixes in the same (3.6 per match). Having played two matches at the Dubai International Stadium, Sunrisers Hyderabad have been the second-best side each time.
This one is also a safe bet, like the previous one, with the Kings XI Punjab batsman in fine form this season., In the past five matches, the IPL side has struck a total of 77 boundaries, at a rate of 15.4 per match, with them registering at least 13 in three of those matches, which gives us a head start. Even in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League, the team managed to register a total of 196 boundaries in 14 matches, equivalent to 14 strikes per match, which also supports our cause.
Having played three matches at the Dubai International Stadium this season, the team has struck 47 boundaries, at a rate of almost 16 hits per match, having registered at least 13 in two of those matches. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, Kings XI Punjab's top two batsmen are also leading the charts in the number of boundaries hit, with 31 and 27 boundaries respectively, which also fits perfectly in our case. With all the evidence pointing to one direction, we have no other option but to invest on this particular bet.
With David Warner and Johhny Bairstow opening for Sunrisers Hyderabad, it would be an obvious choice to bet on this pair, especially after their heroics in the previous season, but the case is different. In the five matches they have played so far, they have had the better opening stand in three occasions, even though they have not scored many runs, with a total of 154 runs, at a rate of 30.8 runs per match. On the other hand, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been the best opening pair in the 2020 IPL so far, having stitched up 369 runs in five matches, averaging 73.8 runs, while having the upper hand in four of those matches.
In the last five H2H matches between these two sides, Kings XI Punjab have had the better opening stand on three occasions, with them scoring 137 runs, at a rate of 34.25 runs per match before the fall of the first wicket, compared to Sunrisers Hyderabad's 100 (25 runs per match). Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab's openers - KL Rahil and Mayank Agarawal are two of the best performers in the IPL so far, with them boasting averages equal to 75.50 and 54.40 runs per innings, which proves how it would dismiss any one of them. I have already placed my bets, What about you?
