Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders Betting Tips

Sunrisers clash KKR for supremacy in IPL 2021

Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the third match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Saturday.

The home team in this fixture will be hoping to continue the kind of performances they produced in the previous campaign where they finished on the fourth position of the league table and were eventually knocked out in the Qualifier 2 against eventual runners-up Delhi Capitals.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping that the players will be able to continue the good performance this time around as well and go one step further than they did in their previous outing.

On the other hand, KKR will be coming in the competition hoping that they can produce a much better performance that they did in the 2020 edition where they finished the campaign on the fifth position of the league table with just 14 points.

Both teams have competed 19 times before in the history of IPL where the Knight Riders have a far better record with 12 wins and just seven defeats.

In the both matches of the previous campaign, KKR came out on top in a super-over and by seven wickets margin.

Team news:

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

Sunrisers Hyderabad have one of the strongest squad on the paper in the competition, especially because of their very potent spin-bowling attack.

By the look of it, the team have some notable foreign players but the local talent isn’t that bad either.

In the batting department, the home team will be relying on the likes of captain David Warner, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, England’s wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow, his opening partner Jason Roy and veteran all-rounder Kedar Jadhav to score bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of star leg-spinner Rashid Khan, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem and right-arm pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar to produce timely breakthroughs.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

KKR are coming in this competition with a newish-look squad, which included a new captain in England’s Eoin Morgan who replaced wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik as the leader of the pack.

Despite him being named the captain of the team, KKR’s weak-link remains their batting unit where there will be too much reliance on the likes of Morgan to come good every single time with the bat in hand.

The World Cup-winning captain will have the services of young Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, explosive all-rounder Andre Russell and Karun Nair to score bulk of the runs and put the team in a strong position.

On the bowling front, the KKR team management will be heavily relying on the likes of star pacers Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson along with the spin trio of Harbhajan Singh, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

With the match being played at a neutral venue, both teams will start on equal terms.

However, looking at the squad compositions, it is fair to say that Sunrisers Hyderabad have a far more settled unit compared to their opponents for Saturday’s fixture.

Therefore, the prediction is for David Warner-led unit to secure a win and start their campaign on a positive note.

Tip 1: David Warner has been a prolific run-scorer in IPL

There is no doubt that Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has been a consistent performer with the bat in the Indian Premier League. He is perhaps the only foreign batsman to score 5,000 runs in the history of Indian Premier League.

In 142 matches played, Warner has accumulated 5,254 runs at an average of 42.71 with four centuries and forty-eighth half-centuries to his name.

Last year, swashbuckling opener once again topped the batting charts for Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League with 548 runs at a strike rate of 134.64.

Given his consistently good performances in the last five editions, we are expecting David Warner to score 30 runs or more against [email protected]

Tip 2: Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar eye a strong comeback with the ball

After struggling with injuries for almost 18 months, Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar showed excellent form and fitness in the recently concluded T20I and ODI series against England.

In the five-match T20I series against England, Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced splendid spells with the new-ball. He showed excellent consistency with the new-ball and used his variations to good effect against England’s star studded batting lineup.

Given his excellent comeback with the ball this season, we are expecting Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take two wickets or [email protected]


Expect Sunrisers Hyderabad to comfortably brush aside Kolkata Knight Riders in the third game of Indian Premier League.
