It could not be tighter in the tussle for the top four spots. One moment one team looks to have sealed their berth, and the next a surprise defeat leaves it wide open again. I have been looking at the live cricket satta rates to find the best KKR vs SRH betting tips ahead of the clash.

I won’t just be looking at the match winner, but also analysing the recent form of individual players, team news, and the head to head record to help establish my best IPL betting strategy.

The action gets underway from 7.30 pm on Saturday 14th May at the Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune.

KKR vs SRH Betting Odds

It’s not an easy call by any means, but I am going to take a punt on the Sunrisers to get the job done as part of my cricket betting tips.

They have already beaten the Kolkata Knight Riders once this season – a comfortable seven-wicket win with 13 balls remaining back on April 15th. An explosive innings from Rahul Tripathi (71 from 37 balls) saw his side over the line, and I think there will be more of the same. For more KKR vs SRH betting tips, scroll below.

KKR vs SRH Betting Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back SRH to win @ 2.05 with Pure Win

Why am I leaning towards Kane Williamson’s charges to get the points as part of my KKR vs SRH betting predictions?

The first thing I looked at when compiling this review was the previous clash in the season between these two. The Sunrisers totally swept the Knight Riders aside – winning with seven wickets in hand and 13 balls to spare. In Twenty20 terms – it was a veritable mauling.

Then I checked the recent form – it reads horribly for the team in orange! They have lost their last four to slide down the table and find themselves in a situation where every remaining game of the season is an effective cup final.

The wretched run of Ls did make me think twice about my match winner prediction, but I like the look of the price. The Knight Riders are hardly ripping it up either and above evens on the SRH feels like a good betting opportunity.

I will be placing my bet with Pure Win. Read our Pure Win review to get the full lowdown – we analyse their sports offering, promotional layout, and more!

KKR vs SRH Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Rahul Tripathi to be SRH’s top batsman @ 4.33 with 10CRIC

First and foremost, Rahul Tripathi is a tremendous batter. A selfless and versatile player that can adapt his approach depending on the match situation, he is paying back the INR 8.5 crore the Sunrisers spent on him in the Mega Auction in spades.

The 31 year-old is still waiting to earn his first cap for his country, but on the evidence of his form this season, a call-up could be just around the corner. He has scored 308 runs at an average of 38.50 and a fantastic strike rate of 164.70.

He is up against the franchise he played for last season and will be looking to prove a point. In the final against the Chennai Super Kings, he came in at eight in the batting order – a position far too low down for a player of his quality. Now batting up the order for the Sunrisers, we are getting to see one of the unsung stars of the tournament given space to showcase his abundant talent.

I will be placing my bet with 10CRIC – an Indian sports betting site that offers thousands of pre-match and in-play markets on the IPL. They are particularly generous with the odds they offer on individual player markets. Find out more by reading our full 10CRIC review.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ Recent Form

After winning three of their opening four matches, the Kolkata Knight Riders have plunged down the regular season standings.

They have won just two of their last eight matches – both of those victories coming in the previous three matches.

Despite their patchy form, the win against the Rajasthan Royals back on May 2nd was an impressive performance – limiting them to 152/5 before chasing down the target with seven wickets in hand and five balls to spare.

A win against the Mumbai Indians last time out carries less credibility, given the car crash of a season they have endured, but will it help them build up a head of steam?

Team News

Some massive international cricket news could impact the Kolkata Knight Riders. New Zealand legend and current KKR coach Brendon McCullum has accepted a position to be England’s coach.

Reportedly, McCullum confirmed at a team meeting that he will leave the KKR at the end of the season to take up the position. Will the news upset the apple cart in the Kolkata camp?

There are no injury issues for team management to worry about.

Player to Watch: Vanketesh Iyer

The exciting all-rounder was dropped from the line-up for the previous two games after a series of deeply disappointing performances. However, the jolt to his system seems to have had the desired effect.

His 43 runs from 24 balls against the Mumbai Indians on Monday 9th May was reminiscent of the Iyer that lit up the IPL last season.

Indeed, he hit 370 runs in IPL 21 – averaging 41.11 at a strike rate of 128.47. This year, he has hit just 175 runs at an average of 19.44 and a strike rate of 110.06.

He came to life at the back end of last season – can he replicate that trend here? I will be placing a small bet on him to top score for the KKR with Betway at 5.00.

KKR’s Likely XI

Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Sam Billings, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Rakish Salam, Pat Cummins, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Recent Form

It’s currently the worst in the IPL and by some distance! They are bidding to avoid a fifth defeat in a row – earlier in the campaign, they had gone on a five-game winning run. It’s clear the Sunrisers don’t do things in half measures.

There are some caveats to the recent bad run, however. A defeat to the Gujarat Titans should never have happened – only some miracle-hitting from Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for the GT. That loss was at the beginning of their losing streak, which also includes narrow defeats to the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals.

Despite the form, I think the Sunrisers Hyderabad can get the job done.

Team News

The Sunrisers have had to deal with freak injuries throughout the campaign. Split webbing to the right hand of key all-rounder Washington Sundar – not once, but twice – has hampered the Sunrisers in the middle overs of innings, both with the bat and the ball.

  1. Natarajan has also been struggling with knee injuries throughout the campaign and has had to be managed carefully.

Player to Watch: Umran Malik

I include Malik in almost all of my Sunrisers Hyderabad Player To Watch sections because he is so exciting in full flow.

The pace demon has not been having things is own way of late – he bowled two overs for 25 runs and no wickets against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

He bowls with such pace, though, that it’s hard to keep him down. I am backing him to make a stirring comeback and take 2+ wickets against the KKR – you can get odds of 2.25 with Betway. 

SRH’s Likely XI

Abishek Sharma, Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, Shashank SIngh, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T. Natarajan.

Venue & conditions

A trend continues to grow at the Maharashtra Cricket Stadium, one that should make the call for the winner of the coin toss an easy one to make.

The last six teams to bat first at this venue have won, and won comfortably. The closest a team has gotten to chasing the target is 13 runs.

The Kolkata Knight Riders were skittled for 101 in pursuit of the Lucknow Super Giants’ 176 here back on May 7th. Shreyas Iyer will know the importance of getting the toss call correct.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Head-To-Head

Although I have backed the Sunrisers, it should be noted the KKR have won 14 of the 22 matches these two have contested.

The victory for the Sunrisers earlier in the campaign halted a run of four straight defeats against the Knight Riders.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Toss Prediction

While the KKR dominate the head-to-head record, the Sunrisers are ahead when it comes to the toss.
