Just two points separate Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders at the present moment, with everything to play for in the upcoming match at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi. While a win for Kolkata Knight Riders will enhance their chances of making it to the knock-out stages, a loss for Sunrisers Hyderabad will almost kick them out of the title race. Both the teams will play out of their skins to grab the points on offer, making this a contest worth watching. So do not miss out on the action.
To make this Sunday even more memorable, I have handpicked the top three bets for you from the market and listed them below. Just go through my analysis and invest strategically to win loads of money by the end of the game.
The Australian, as usual, has taken the IPL by storm and is leading the charts for Sunrisers Hyderabad, with him at the sixth spot overall in the league. Having played eight matches so far, the batsman amassed 284 runs, at a rate of 35.50 runs per innings, having scored at least 27 runs in six of those matches. Even in the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, earlier this season, the southpaw scored 36 runs, while he averages 43.25 runs overall in the 22 matches he has faced the Knight Riders' bowling attack.
Having played two matches at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium this season, Warner has registered scores of 36 and 45, scoring at a rate of 40.5 runs per innings, having passed the 26-run mark in each of those games. Overall, in 134 matches in his IPL career so far, the Aussie has racked up a total of 4990 runs, at a staggering average of 42.64 runs per innings, which is incredible. In 290 T20s played so far, he scored a total of 9560 runs, at a rate of 37.78 runs per innings. I hope you have placed the bet by now.
Like David Warner, young Shubman Gill has been the top player for Kolkata Knight Riders, in what is a disappointing campaign for the IPL franchise so far. In the eight matches played so far, the batsman has scored a total of 275 runs, at a rate of 39.28 runs per innings, with four scores of over 23 runs. the last four matches he played at the venue, the batsman has registered scores of - 70 n.o, 11, 57, 21, having piled up 159 runs, scoring at a rate of 52 runs per innings, having scored north of 24 runs in two of those games, which includes an unbeaten 70-run unbeaten knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Well, this is not a fluke for sure, with the right-hander consistently performing for the IPL side, having also amassed 296 runs in the previous edition, in 14 matches, maintaining an average of 32.88 runs per innings. Overall, in 35 matches Shubman has played in his IPL career, he has scored a total of 774 runs, averaging 35.18 runs per innings, which also supports our cause. With all the evidence pointing to one direction, there is no way we can ignore this particular bet.
The focus is back on David Warner once again, with the batsman being one of the cleanest hitters of the cricket ball at present. In the eight matches he has played so far, the Australian has hit a total of 22 boundaries, at a rate of almost 2.75 per match. Moreover, in the last five matches, he has hit a total of 16 boundaries, averaging 3.2 hits per match, having hit at least 3 in four of the above-mentioned matches.
In the 11 T20Is Warner has played in the past year, prior to the start of the 2020 IPL, the left-hander has registered a total of 46 boundaries, at a rate of 4.18 hits per match, having struck at least 3 in eight of those matches. In 134 matches he has played in his IPL career so far, the batsman has hit a total of 480 boundaries, at a rate of 3.58 hits per match. Overall, in 290 T20s he has featured in, the Aussie has piled up a staggering 928 boundaries, striking at a rate of 3.20 hits per match. I have already placed my bet. What about you?
