Sunrisers rely on fast bowling pack
- KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock again key for LSG
- Bhuvneshwar’s spell could be vital
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a strong pace attack that can test the best of teams and will bank on them as they meet Lucknow Super Giants in their second game of the season. The DY Patil should help the chasing side and winning the toss will also increase SRH’s chances of a win, the odds of which stand at 2.21
Meanwhile, Lucknow Super Giants have a formidable batting unit and notched up a record run chase against Chennai Super Kings the last game to win their first-ever IPL match. They have odds of 1.64 to beat SRH and make it two wins in the season.
Battle between Lucknow batters and SRH bowlers
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a less-than-ideal batting line-up after the mega auction and it got exposed against Rajasthan Royals in their first match of the season. With still a lot riding on Kane Williamson and Nicholas Pooran in the batting department, SRH will want the bowling to make up for it.

The battle in this game will be between the SRH bowlers and Lucknow’s batters, especially the top order that has Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Evin Lewis, Deepak Hooda and new sensation Ayush Badoni.
Keep an eye on…
Ayush Badoni: The teenager showed impeccable composure in strife in both games and is quickly turning into a terrific buy for Lucknow Super Giants. With the top-order still a tad vulnerable, Lucknow will hope Badoni has a breakthrough season and continues his great start.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: SRH will need to sent Lucknow in the powerplay if they are to restrict them and it will come down to Bhuvneshwar and his spell with the new ball. With Umran Malik and Romario Shepherd for company, Bhuvneshwar will be a big bowler for SRH this season.
TIP: Kane Williamson will want to bat deep for SRH and has odds of 3.41 to make a fifty – something he will look to do to hold the batting together…
