Punjab Team News

The Kings should have scored far more than what they did against the Delhi Capitals on Sunday.

After fine starts by KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, they threw it away with West Indian duo Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran never getting going and ultimately falling about 15 runs short of what they should have got.

But if that can be forgiven, their bowling can’t. Mohammad Shami, Jhye Richardson, and Riley Meredith were all terribly expensive once again and until they sort out their bowling, they’re not going to win many games.

They may however go with Moises Henriques here at the expense of Meredith. He bowls with good control and is a fine middle-order batsman and good at pacing an innings, so might be just what they need.

Pooran and Gayle could both do with a score but should keep their places for now.

Likely XI: Agarwal, Rahul, Gayle, Hooda, Pooran, Henriques, Sharukh Khan, Richardson, Saxena, Singh, Shami

Hyderabad Team News

Three games, three defeats.

Nothing that we’ve seen from SRH should come as any great surprise. They’ve mostly bowled well but have been a disaster with the bat.

Their two main men- Jonny Bairstow and David Warner- have mostly done their bit. Mostly because though they’ve got the team off to good starts, they haven’t finished off the job on any of those three occasions yet.

And once they’ve got out, no one else has carried on with Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, and Abdul Samad just three examples of batsmen who haven’t found any sort of form.

What they need is the ice-cool Kane Williamson. But with Warner, Bairstow, and Khan certain to play, fielding Williamson leaves them with fewer bowling options.

Likely XI: Bairstow, Warner, Pandey, Williamson, Shankar, Sharma, Samad, Khan, Kumar, Ahmed, Natarajan

Venue & conditions

Scores of 152, 149, and 150 batting first here in Chennai over the last week suggest that 150 is about par and that if you get to 160, then you’re really in business.

RCB did admittedly score 204 but that was thanks to some truly inspired batting and some poor KKR bowling.

One betting ploy here would be to look for a team to get off to a fast start and then go under 170 runs on the first innings runs market as the wicket gets trickier over the course of the innings.

PBKS vs SRH Head-to-Head

SRH have certainly had the better of this fixture over the years.

They’re currently 11-5 up though we do of course have to remember that Punjab were really out of sorts for a three or four-year period where they kept on losing to everyone.

Proof of the fact that things have been tighter since Punjab have improved, is the fact that the last six games were shared with three wins each.

Punjab are way ahead when it comes to tosses won so it’s a surprise their record in this fixture isn’t better. Either way, the Kings are the selection.

Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back SRH to win @ 2.0 with Casumo

This is a tough game to call between a side that right now can’t bat (SRH) and one that can’t bowl (PK).

If they win the toss, SRH may just decide to go against the grain and bat first, knowing that Khan and co can put pressure on PK in the chase. And even if they do need to chase, at least they’ll be doing so against a poor bowling outfit.

And with the superior head-to-head record in their favour, SRH just about get the vote as slight outsiders.

SRH Top Bowler: KK Ahmed

Recommended Bet: KK Ahmed SRH Top Bowler @ 5.00 with 10CRIC

Despite the Sunrisers bowling well as a unit, their two main men Bhuvi Kumar and Rashid Khan haven’t been at their absolute best.

Khan has taken four wickets and his economy rate is excellent but you can see how much respect opposition batsmen show him these days because in the past he may have had six or seven by now. He’s just 2.9, proof of how much respect the betting sites are showing him, too.

Kumar has been far from his best, going at 10 an over and claiming just two wickets. Holder and Nabi are unlikely to play. Natarajan was dropped despite playing for India recently.

So at a big price, it’s worth chancing KK Ahmed at 5.0. He was good last time out, is certain to play, and has an excellent career strike rate.

Recommended Bet: Mayank Agarwal to be PK Top Batsman  @ 4.5 with 10CRIC

Mayank Agarwal top-scored last time out and despite not being in the sort of form he was in this time last year, is showing signs he’s hitting it well.

We’ve said before that openers are at an advantage here in Chennai because it gets so much tougher to bat as the game progresses so it’s either him or Rahul we’re looking at, especially with Gayle and Pooran not looking 100%.

Given Rahul is almost half the price and it’s obvious we’re going to go with Agarwal.
