Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2021 Preview & Betting Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad Betting

The Sunrisers Hyderabad are always there or thereabouts at the head of the online betting markets. The same goes for their performances over the years.

They’ve been the epitome of consistency over the past few seasons and look well-equipped for this season’s edition where they’ll be eyeing up a second IPL crown.

Their squad boasts some of T20’s true game-changers and with David Warner still on board as skipper, the intensity and effort levels are bound to be sky-high.

Sunrisers Hyderabad best odds

If you’re interested, the best IPL betting sites have the Sunrisers Hyderabad at 7.0 to win the IPL, making them fifth-favourites. That makes them considerably bigger than the Mumbai Indians (fair enough), but also bigger than the Delhi Capitals, the Chennai Super Kings and Bangalore.

That certainly doesn’t look right, especially as regards RCB. However, they don’t often even make the final so you can see why they’re not so fancied to go all the way.

Since 2016 they’ve made the Play-Offs every year, won it once and ended up as runners-up on another occasion, so over the past few seasons they’ve been nothing if not consistent.

Add an extremely well-balanced squad to the equation that includes one of the finest T20 batsmen in the game in Warner and arguably the best T20 spinner in Rashid Khan and you can see why we here at Bet India quite like the look of them.

Our Prediction for the Season: SRH to blah the blah

Today’s SRH match predictions

Have Sunrisers Hyderabad won the IPL before?

They won it in 2016 after finishing third in the Group Stages. Yeah, that means they had to do it the hard way. They set Kolkata Knight Riders 162 in the Eliminator which proved to be more than enough, winning by 22 runs. They followed that up with a hard-fought win against Gujarat Lions in the Qualifier 2.

Thanks to a well-judged chase of 163 that owed a lot to an excellent 93 not out from the bat of Warner. In the final, their hero came from a somewhat unlikely source, against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Ben Cutting, who tends to do really well in the Big Bash but has somewhat struggled in the IPL over the years, hit a crucial 39 off 15 batting first and then followed that up by taking two for 35 with the ball, in a man-of-the-match performance.

Warner scored a barely believable 848 runs during the tournament and Bhuvi Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman played their part as well with the ball, Kumar taking 23 wickets and the Bangladeshi claiming 17.

SRH performance 2020

It was a reasonable season for SRH last time out. They managed to finish the Group Stages in third place on 14 points thanks to a better net run rate than RCB (who made the Playoffs) and KKR (who didn’t), who also ended on 14.

They did well to beat RCB in the Eliminator in a low-scoring match and were just one game away from the final. But Delhi’s 189 proved a little too many for them despite a valiant effort in trying to chase that.

It was the usual story in terms of their star performers over the course of the season. Rashid Khan led the bowling charts with 20 wickets, while Warner top-scored with 548 runs. Interestingly, in the eight games they won, there were eight different SRH man-of-the-match winners.

SRH performance 2019

They crept into the Play-Offs in fourth place, only just pipping Kolkata and the Kings XI to the last qualifying slot on net run rate.

They then lost to Delhi Capitals in the Eliminator in an extremely tight game that saw the Capitals chase their 163 with just a ball to spare when eight wickets down.

Five different Hyderabad players got to 20 but none of them was able to kick on.

An explanation behind their defeat in that match is that Warner was unavailable as he prepared for the 2019  World Cup.

He’d been their star man with 692 runs, enough to make him the IPL’s top batsman for the season and they badly missed him when it mattered most.

A crown representing the captain at SRH

Captain: David Warner

David Warner remains in charge of the Orange Army. This follows him being dropped from the captaincy back in 2019 on the back of his ban the previous year, resulting from Sandpapergate.

He’s an astute skipper and enjoys a good relationship with Head Coach Trevor Bayliss. You’ll notice that in tight games SRH very often come out on top due to superior in-game plans such as clever fielding placements and inventive bowling changes.

Warner’s explosive batting at the top of the order is invaluable to the side, while his fielding is right up there with the very best in the competition.

A trophy representing the gun player for SRH

Gun player: Bhuvi Kumar

Bhuvi Kumar isn’t a flashy cricketer. However, his excellent line and length bowling and ability to swing the ball in the right conditions makes him one of the most reliable bowlers out there.

This is why he was so sorely missed when he was out injured for most of the campaign last year. Perfectly normal; no side is going to be as good without their star pace bowler.

It’s not for nothing that when India play their strongest side in limited-overs cricket, he’s always in the team. He was absolutely brilliant in the recent ODI and T20I Series against England, often deciding matches in his second spell.

He’s been working on his game tirelessly of late and developed some new deliveries including a well-disguised slower ball to bowl at the death.

A medal representing the promising youngster at SRH

Promising youngster: Rashid Kahn

It’s a massive insult to Rashid Kahn to call him ‘promising’ He’s already just about the best bowler in the world in T20 cricket. After all, he was the first pick in the draft for overseas players in the Hundred, which starts this year in England.

But despite having played over 250 T20s, he’s still only 22. The leg-spinner is crucial to any good SRH performance, bowling in those middle-overs and breaking up partnerships whilst more often than not keeping the run rate down.

Every team fears those four overs of his with many batsmen opting to not take any risk against him at all, which obviously dries up the runs.

Rashid Kahn is one of our choices for IPL 2021 player of the season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team Analysis

SRH tick just about every box and their big dilemma before it starts will be choosing which four overseas players to field. Warner, Khan and Bairstow are certainties. Then it’s a tough choice.

Their choices are:

  • All-rounder Mohammed Nabi who provides balance and experience.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman who could offer the perfect spin partner for Rashid Khan.
  • Jason Holder, who was excellent last season in the second half of the campaign, especially with the ball.
  • Explosive opener Jason Roy, though they already have Bairstow and Warner for that.
  • Kane Williamson, who not only has one of the coolest heads in cricket as a batsman but who could be of great use to Warner in terms of advice on the field.

Their bowling line-up has variety, class and experience, while their top three in the batting, which will be completed by Manish Pandey, can get them off to some fast starts.

They have every chance of making the final, or better. Sure, they’ll have to beat a couple of the strongest sides to get there and will probably go in as underdogs. But that shouldn’t be a problem for them. Khan alone will win a few of those matches on his own.

Recommended Bet: Back SRH to make the final @ 3.75 with 10CRIC.

Sunrisers Hyderabad FAQs

No. They’re fifth-favourites at 7.0. The bookmakers are showing some respect to the Sunrisers, who have made the Playoffs in each of the past five years, and who finished as runners-up one of those times and won it back in 2016. But other sides like Mumbai and Delhi are seen as stronger.

Yes. They’ve done it in two of the last four seasons and look ready for another assault at the IPL title. If they finish in the Top 2 in the Group Stages, they’ll have two matches in which to qualify for the final.

David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, but go with Warner. The Australian has the better IPL record, a higher strike rate and unlike Bairstow, is likely to play the whole competition whereas Bairstow might be dropped at some stage. Warner is 9.0 with 10CRIC to be this year’s Indian Premier League top batsman.

They’re up against the defending champions the Mumbai Indians. The match is in Hyderabad and takes place on Sunday, April 11. The bookmakers are finding it hard to split the pair in terms of the odds but the smart money is on SRH.
