Why should I bet on SRH to win this match at 2.10 ?
Though DC are the favourites to win this match, they seem to be in trouble, losing back-to-back matches for the first time this season. Several players are simultaneously going out of form, and hence we predict SRH to win this.
Why should I bet on SRH to hit the most sixes at 2.30 ?
The likes of Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar are in good batting form for SRH, and can easily clear the ropes as well, as can all-rounder Jason Holder. Along with them if even one of their openers fire, we could be in for a huge number of sixes.
Why should I bet on Rabada to be the top bowler for DC @3.00?
Kagiso Rabada is probably the greatest bowler of all time in the IPL. He is the current purple cap holder with 18 wickets in 8 matches, 4 clear of the second-highest wicket taker, at an average of 13.38. He has taken 2 or more wickets in the last 12 consecutive matches that he has played, which is a record. Hence this is arguably the safest bet in this match.


Sunrisers Hyderabad have been fairly successful of late, winning 2 titles and qualifying for the play-offs regularly. DC on the other hand, have not won the title yet, and more disappointingly, haven’t even reached the final yet. These two teams have faced each other 16 times in total since SRH was renamed, out of which SRH have won 10 times, and DC could only muster 5 wins, with one match being abandoned. Earlier this season SRH beat DC in a big win.

Team News

The Delhi Capitals won their opening two matches to get off to the perfect start, and were top of the table before they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, they regained momentum and went on to win a hattrick of games. Their batting top order looks fairly consistent, with notable contributions from at least two of the top order batsmen in every game so far, followed by some big hitting by the likes of Stoinis and Hetmyer after them.

The bowling looks very good, however, with very economical spells by the spinners and a brilliant pace partnership between Rabada and Nortje. DC lost to MI by a narrow margin, before coming back to win brilliantly against RR. A couple of key injuries to Amit Mishra and Rishabh Pant is a very worrying sign, however, with their replacements not performing so well. DC have won 4 of their last 6 matches, and defeated CSK by scoring 25 runs off the last over for a memorable victory. However, they lost against KXIP in disappointing fashion. They followed that up with another big defeat against KKR.

SRH lost both their opening 2 matches, and were rock bottom of the table before their clash with Delhi Capitals. However, they regrouped and beat the table toppers with an impressive bowling performance, led by Rashid Khan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.

They followed that up with another impressive victory of Chennai Super Kings, but faltered against Mumbai Indians. After that they scored 200+ against KXIP for a huge win, before throwing away the game from a winning position against RR. They then lost to a resurgent CSK side by 20 runs, and followed it up with a 3rd consecutive defeat against KKR, clearly suffering from the absence of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.

However, in their match against Rajasthan Royals, despite losing both their openers early, SRH secured an impressive win with a huge partnership between Pandey and Shankar. However, in their last match they had an incredible collapse from a winning position to lose against KXIP.

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

DC are the favourites to win the match with odds of 1.72 as per LeoVegas, which is not surprising considering they have won 4 of their last 6 matches. SRH lost their last match from a winning position, and have been struggling, losing 3 matches in a row before their win against RR. They are 2.10 to win this match.

Top Team Batsman

SRH captain David Warner is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 3.00. His opening partner Johnny Bairstow has odds of 3.50, while the dependable Kane Williamson has odds of 5.00. The consistent Manish Pandey has odds of 4.50, which is an attractive bet.  

Shikhar Dhawan is, as usual, the favourite to be Delhi’s top batsman in this match with odds of 3.00. He has been the top scorer for DC in the last 4 matches, with back to back unbeaten centuries in the last 2 matches, becoming the first player ever to achieve this feat. His opening partner Prithvi Shaw has odds of 4.50 despite his poor form of late, while captain Shreyas Iyer has odds of 3.75, after his blistering knock against KKR propelled them to 227 in their earlier match this season.

Highest Opening Partnership

SRH are favourites at 1.80 to have the highest opening partnership in this match. This is primarily because Warner and Bairstow are the best opening pair in the world on their day, and though both haven’t performed simultaneously very often this season, they certainly have the ability to do so.

Top Team Bowler

South African pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada is in brilliant form of late, and is DC’s favourite to be the top bowler, at 3.00. He is also the current purple cap holder. He is followed by compatriot Nortje at 3.75, who is famous for his searing pace.

Rashid Khan is unsurprisingly SRH’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 2.62, followed by Jason Holder at 4.00 and Khaleel at 4.50.

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 327.5 runs in this match are 1.69, as per LeoVegas. This seems highly achievable as both these teams are in good batting form, and both teams have deep batting line-ups full of all-rounders, hence some big totals are expected.

Individual Player Betting

  • Jonny Bairstow to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.87 , which is a tempting bet as he would like to bounce back with a solid innings. Shikhar Dhawan to score more than 29.5 runs has odds of 1.87,which is arguably the safest bet in this match as he has scored back to back centuries as well as 2 more 50’s in his last 5 matches.
  • SRH to hit the most sixes depends heavily on their openers, and the odds are 2.30. DC to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.87, which is understandable as they have Stoinis and Dhawan, who prefer the aerial route more often than not.
  • Rashid Khan to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.30 which is a given with his form, Rabada to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 1.95, which is a safe bet as he almost always takes a couple of wickets.

Our Top Betting Picks

  • SRH to win the match @2.10
  • SRH to hit the most sixes @2.30
  • SRH to have the Highest Opening Partnership @1.80
  • Rabada to be DC’s top wicket-taker @3.00

Dream 11 Preview

Our Dream XI team for this match is fairly balanced with 2 wicket-keepers, 3 batsmen, 3 all-rounders and 3 bowlers.

Wicket Keeper – Bairstow And Pant

Bairstow is the second-favourite to be the top scorer from SRH, and can be very explosive up the order. Pant has been consistent for DC this season, and is due a big innings.


From SRH we have included David Warner, as he is a premium batsman and the favourite to be the top scorer for SRH, hence we have captained him as well. We then have the 3rd favourite from SRH as well, Manish Pandey. We have also included DC captain Shreyas Iyer, who has been fairly consistent.


From SRH we have picked 2 all-rounders. First, Vijay Shankar, described as a “360 player” for his all-round contributions and then Jason Holder, who picked up 5 wickets in the previous 2 matches. From DC we have Stoinis who is handy with the bat and ball both.


Our bowling line-up is led by Rabada (3.00 to be DC’s top bowler), who is in exceptional form. We also have Rashid Khan and pacer Nortje to complete our lethal bowling line-up.
