Sunrisers Hyderabad hope to make late burst in the season count
Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit upon the perfect formula for success in T20s late in the season and it has come with a minor, unexpected tweak to their batting order and batting group. Wriddhiman Saha and David Warner have carried them to the play-offs. The two remain integral to their success in the game against RCB who have a quality bowling attack. Their odds of winning the game stand at 1.86
Royal Challengers Bangalore have thrived on their middle-order and AB de Villiers’ form. They will once again look to bat deep to counter SRH’s attacking ploy in the middle overs with Rashid Khan. If de Villiers flops, RCB will be in trouble. Their odds stand at 1.86 to win the eliminator and stay alive.
Overall head to head record in balance
Overall records show that RCB and SRH have a pretty even record over the years despite the contrasting fortunes of the two teams in the league as a whole. Sunrisers Hyderabad have had 9 victories in head-to-head matches while Royal Challengers Bangalore have managed 7 wins. There is nothing to suggest that a certain team has an edge over the other and it’s reflected in the rather even odds. Since 2019, SRH have won two of the four games between these teams including a win in the last game earlier in the season..
RECOMMENDED BET: Sunrisers Hyderabad are in the in-form team after beating Mumbai and RCB recently and have odds of 1.86 to win this game
The wins have a distinct similarity as shown by the fact that both teams have preferences. RCB have won four of the eight run-chases and Sunrisers Hyderabad habe won 62.5% of the matches where they bat first.
Keep an eye on…
Saha’s starts: David Warner has settled into his own mainly because of the presence of Wriddhiman Saha who has taken the season by storm with his revolutionary batting in the powerplay. The wicket-keeper batsman will once again look to take off at the beginning and stopping him will be on RCB’s priority list.
TIP: Hyderabad have a match-winning opening duo in Saha and Warner and have odds of 1.83 to make the better opening stand.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Rashid Khan: The leg-spinners control the middle overs phase and this game involves two of the best leg-spinners in the league this season. How the batting side fares against these two leggies could decide which way the contest sways.
