Big game for table toppers Gujarat Titans
- SRH have won five matches on the trot
- Gujarat have lost only one game so far
Gujarat Titans are at the top of the points table in their debut IPL season with six wins in seven matches. GT have odds of 1.80 to win this game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are second behind them. The Hardik Pandya-led unit will have their litmus test against the strong SRH attack.
Noteworthy, Sunrisers have been brilliant in the last few games. Their winning streak notably began against Gujarat Titans when they beat them by 8 wickets. This time as they face again, SRH will once again hope their batting steps up. Their chances of winning stand at 1.98
What happened earlier in the season
SRH’s winning streak started with an eight-wicket win over Gujarat Titans in a clash no one expected them to ace. Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma were clever in the run chase of 163 then after SRH bowlers did a fine job against the Gujarat batters.
SRH have identified their best mix of players and despite Gujarat’s superb season, are our pick to win this one.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The contest will likely be decided by how the Gujarat batters fare against a strong SRH attack. With Gujarat’s batting form less than ideal, Sunrisers will hope to dent them early on like in the previous encounter.
Keep an eye on…
Aiden Markram: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s middle-order has been superb in the last few games and a key player has been Aiden Markram, with his proficiency against pace and spin. The South African will be key against Lockie Ferguson’s high pace.
Rashid Khan: Against his former franchise, Rashid Khan will be itching to make a mark. The Afghanistan spinner couldn’t do much in the first clash between these sides and will hope to turn it around for GT this time.
TIP: Hardik Pandya slammed a fifty last game against SRH and has been in good form since too. Back Hardik Pandya at 4.73 to be the top batter tonight!
