Match 14 of 56 in this years IPL between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and KXIP sees two sides struggling to get into a rhythm and find some form. The game starts at 7 pm India time and takes place at the Dubai International stadium.
A major part of being successful in the Indian Premier League is consistency; chipping away and picking up results and at times both sides have struggled to live up to fans hopes and expectations.
After losing their opening match against RCB the Sunrisers looked to have got in their groove. Two wins followed that opener, starting with a victory against this year’s surprise package Delhi Capitals and solid performance saw them overcome the Chennai Super Kings.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have played 5 won 2 and sit 6th in the current IPL standings.
The Kings XI Punjab have been in dreadful form. They currently sit bottom of the standings having played lost 4 of their 5 matches and winning just once.
The KXIP really need to start finding some form and quick, otherwise, the team will be the laughing stock of the tournament.
Looking for the slightest bit of positivity the KXIP played extremely well against the RCB. Their dominance in the match saw them win by 97 runs; the kind of victory form is built on and they certainly have the batsmen to win games.
As we all know T20 cricket has little patience for poor decisions and teams can quickly get found out. Their bowling at times simply hasn’t been good enough highlighted in the loss to CSK.
With both teams at the lower end of the standings, they will both feel this is a match they could win. We’ve had a look at the betting markets to see where the value may lie.

Tip 1 – Who will win the match? Sunrisers Hyderabad odds 1.80
As discussed, going into the match, both teams have been struggling of late so we’ve looked at the individuals who can win it for their teams.
We think there is too much quality in the SH team for them not to win this match. With batsmen like David Warner who has 175 runs so far Manish Pandey who has knocked 147 runs in 5 matches and Jonny Bairstow who has hit 144 runs. These three batsmen alone can smash KXIP out of the ground and let’s be honest their bowling has left a lot to be desired.
At 1.80, we can see a nice return on any stake placed on the Sunrisers Hyderabad to win this match.
Tip 2 – Total runs in the highest scoring over – over 19.5 runs (odds 1.83)
Although we see a Sunrisers victory, mainly down to their attack against a poor bowling team, we can see value with this market. Along with the SH batsmen Warner, Pandey and Bairstow the KXIP also have their players who can perform with the bat.
In reality, Punjab should have much better results. KL Rahul is simply outstanding with the bat and with the likes of Mayank Agarwal Nicholas Pooran, some big scores can be achieved.
With odds of 1.83, we can see at least one of these batsmen if not more taking the game by the scruff of the neck and smashing some big hits!
Tip 3 – David Warner total fours over 3.5 (odds 2.40)
We find it quite remarkable that the Sunrisers opening batsmen David Warner has such high odds for this market. The Australian left-hander is in fantastic form and his stats so far in this year’s tournament would indicate he could well punish any poor bowling from the KXIP.
Warner has played all 5 matches averaging 35 runs. His highest score of 60 came against the Mumbai Indians where he looked in great form. Warner has already picked up 14 fours in his 5 matches and we think this betting market could well be worth considering.
