Sunrisers Hyderabad hope to make their incredible run count
There’s no stopping Sunrisers Hyderabad. They have come out of what appeared to be an ordinary season to notch up wins in succession and qualify to the play-offs. In the eliminator against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they crushed the Virat Kohli-led side even without their regular opener in the team. Delhi, who come off the back of a similar bad patch as Bangalore, will be wary of the Hyderabad threat. Their odds of winning the game stand at 1.71
Delhi Capitals have had a poor ending to a dashing season and unless they manage to turn it around big time in this game, their season will come to a sorry ending. Much of Delhi’s hopes hinge on their pace bowlers from South Africa. Even if they do click, the batting has been disastrous and will be tested by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their odds stand at 2.05 to win the qualifiers and make it to the finals.
Overall head to head record in favour of Hyderabad
Ever since the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise was formed, they have been one of the best in the league with Delhi Capitals mostly having a torrid time in the league. The head-to-head records reflect how the teams have been in the league too. Overall, Hyderabad has won 11 matches in comparison to Delhi’s six in head to head games.
RECOMMENDED BET: Sunrisers Hyderabad are on a roll with big wins late in the season and have odds of 1.71 to win this game
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won five of the last seven games across three seasons against Delhi. This includes two back-to-back wins in the ongoing edition of the tournament.
Keep an eye on…
Kane Williamson: Quietly perched behind David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha in the batting line-up, Kane Williamson has been brilliant in the middle overs anchor role, setting up games and attacking at the perfect time. He set up their win over RCB in the eliminator and will be eager to make a mark against Delhi.
Shikhar Dhawan: A season of inconsistencies, we have seen the best and the worst of Shikhar Dhawan this season. He has either gone big or been dismissed far too early to make an impact. Delhi will hope that the beastly form of Dhawan turns up against Hyderabad as they meet for the third time.
TIP: Hyderabad have a match-winning opening duo in Saha and Warner and have odds of 1.83 to make the better opening stand.
