“SRH was very unlucky last time out losing in the super over after Williamson didn’t get his bat over the line and they lost a run.”

Arjun Reddy
Head of Indian Cricket Content

Latest stats and trends
  • SRH has a net run rate of just -0.180 which shows just how close their losses have been.
  • They lost their last match in a super over by 1 run. We thought they should have sent Bairstow out to bat for the over rather than Williamson.
  • In 5 matches SRH has always batted second and just fallen short of the target. They have lost by 13 runs at the highest.
  • Captian David Warner seemed annoyed with the selectors after the match saying “Vijay is not one of our strike bowlers, but he was fantastic. Johnny at the top and Kane batted deep but… It’s on the selectors. Harsh call to drop Manish Pandey.”

Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win at 11/10*

SRH has been really close to wins in all their matches and they have all the firepower to win here. They have been so close to winning that their 8th place seems unfair to them. A little more luck and they would have 3 or 4 wins and be sitting in the knock out places.

  • Pick 1: Baristow top team batsman 5/2

Bairstow’s form is noticeable and he will have a point to prove here, after being overlooked for the super over. Hopefully, we can see SRH bat first and see Warner and Bairstow really go after the CSK bowlers.

  • Pick 2: A century in the match 8/1

With the batting on offer, we think there’s a good chance of Warner/ Bairstow or Faf getting a century in the match.
