SRH vs KXIP Prediction: Toss, Pitch, Cricket Betting Tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2020 Match 22

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab

Indian Premier League 2020, Match 22

Date & Time: 08 October, 2020 at 7:30 PM IST

Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE

SRH vs KXIP Prediction

Dubai International stadium which saw high scoring games in the last two matches played here will host the Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 22nd match of IPL 2020. SRH is currently having a mixed season. Having won just 2 matches out of the 5 matches played so far, they have now fallen behind the radar with the injury of lead pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. KXIP on the other hand has had a terrible season so far. They have managed to win just one game so far and they will be hoping to capitalize on the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to secure their second win.

Strength

Kings XI Punjab:

  • In form top order. Both KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are in splendid form.
  • Mohammad Shami and young Bishnoi are in fine form.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • The best opening pair among 8 teams. Record of Warner-Bairstow speaks for themselves.
  • With Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Priyam Garg finding form, they have almost strengthened the middle order.
  • Rashid Khan and T.Natarajan are in great form with the ball.

Weakness

Kings XI Punjab:

  • Weak middle order. If either of Mayank or Rahul don’t fire, they are in very serious trouble. They would need timely support from Pooran, Maxwell, and Sarfaraz.
  • KXIP’s death bowling is pretty ordinary. They haven’t been able to find the right man for the death overs.
  • Constant chopping and changing are affecting the team stability.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Young Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad are their fifth and sixth bowling options. Especially in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it can be a weak link. Opposition teams are expected to target these four overs.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2020. This weakens the pace bowling department.

  • SRH has a better all-round team than KXIP. Constant chopping and changing are not helping KXIP. As for that reason, SRH is expected to edge over KXIP as per our today match prediction.
  • KXIP’s death bowling is a huge worry. With the likes of Williamson, Samad, and Garg, etc in the opposition, they are once again expected to go for plenty of runs.
  • That being said, SRH should be able to outcast the KXIP with ease if KXIP plays the same team. But if Gayle and Mujeeb plays, then the advantage will shift in favour of KXIP. So if you are in for online IPL betting, place your money accordingly.

Head to Head (overall)

  • Matches Played- 14

SRH VS KXIP MATCH PREDICTION

Photo: BCCI

This is one of the low profile matches of IPL 2020. With both teams having very few fans compared to the other teams, the excitement building up to this match is quite less. But nonetheless, this match has all those ingredients to be one of the best in IPL 2020. Both teams are struggling badly and a turn-around is a must for both the teams. For that reason, many changes are also expected in the eleven. Starting with KXIP, they will most likely bring in Mujeeb and the Universe Boss Chris Gayle in place of Maxwell and Jordan.

If they don’t bring in these proven T20 superstars even today, then things would get very difficult for them. With Jordan moving out, Ishan Porel is expected to play in as the Indian seamer and he is expected to replace the spinner, Harpreet Brar. This is most likely to be KXIP’s last try at team combination as all other combinations have been tried so far.

With regard to SRH, there will be one forced change. Bhuvneshwar Kumar who is ruled out of the tournament will be replaced by Sandeep Sharma in the eleven. The rest of the team is expected to be the same.

KXIP Playing 11: Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Mohammad Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Sheldon Cottrell, Ishan Porel, Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman.

SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Sidharth Kaul/ Khaleel Ahmed, T Natrajan

  • KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal should be sure-shot options in your fantasy teams.
  • Young Ravi Bishnoi has impressed everyone. Bet on him to take few wickets.
  • If Chris Gayle and Mujeeb get a chance, then take them in your teams blindly. They are proven T20 match winners.
  • SRH pacer T.Natarajan showed great promise in the last few matches that he played. To add to that, he is the only pacer so far in this edition of the IPL, who has been able to nail Yorkers consistently.
  • SRH captain David Warner’s overall IPL consistency is tough to look beyond. He along with Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson holds the key to SRH’s chances.

SRH vs KXIP Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

Despite the long boundaries, Dubai has seen many 200+ games. With batting heavy teams on both sides, expect nothing less than a cracking game. Almost 70% of the games were won by teams batting first, so its wise to bat first on this pitch. Considering the line-ups of both the teams' anything above 180 seems to be a good enough score.

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 160-170

If Kings XI Punjab bats first: 180-190

Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.

Top Batsmen

KXIP- KL Rahul/ Mayank Agarwal

These two are in splendid form. With the rest of the batting unit not stepping up to the mark, the pressure is high on them to deliver consistently. They are expected to do justice to those expectations in this match as well.  If you are in for IPL betting, bet on either of these two to score the maximum runs in this match.

SRH- David Warner

David Warner is one of the most consistent batsmen in IPL history. With a weak bowling unit at the opposition, he will be in attacking mode from ball one.

Other Prominent Options: Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, Chris Gayle (If he plays).

Top Bowler

KXIP- Mohammad Shami

He has been almost unplayable in the powerplay. If he can replicate that in the death overs as well, then KXIP will have fewer problems to worry about.

SRH- Rashid Khan

The spin magician got back to form in the last match. As for IPL betting tips, he is a sure shot bowler to invest your money in.

Other Prominent options: T. Natarajan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman (If he plays)

Most Sixes
KXIP- KL Rahul
SRH- David Warner

Player of the Match

Rashid Khan

SRH's chances in this match depend heavily on Spin King Rashid Khan. Taking into account his current form, he is expected to do that job and bag the prestigious Player of the Match award.
