Sunrisers Hyderabad

Bowling first, Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced an outstanding spell where he picked 2 for 12 in four overs as they restricted LSG to 165. The SRH openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma then decimated the bowling attack, mowing down the target in just 9.4 overs. Head smashed an unbeaten 89 in 30 balls whereas Abhishek blasted 75 not-out in 28 deliveries.

Gill scored 104 in 55 deliveries while Sudharsan struck 103 off 51 as GT posted 231 in 20 overs.

Our SRH vs GT Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Heinrich Klaasen 
  • Batter(s): Shubman Gill, Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Sai Sudharsan 
  • All-rounder(s): Nitish Kumar Reddy, Shahrukh Khan 
  • Bowler(s): Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Pat Cummins 
  • Recommended captain: Travis Head 
  • Recommended vice-captain: Sai Sudharsan 

In this part of the SRH vs GT match prediction, we will try to explain why we have picked the above XI for this Dream11 contest. The pitches at Hyderabad have been excellent for batting so we have packed the side with seven batting options. 

From wicket-keeper batters, we have Heinrich Klaasen who has had a pretty good season. In the batting section, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan have all been in good form and bat in the top order. 

Among all-rounders, Nitish Kumar Reddy and Shahrukh Khan have been batting in the top four for their respective team and have done well. Rashid Khan has not been at his best this season but can not be left out. Noor Ahmad and Pat Cummins have done well while Bhuvneshwar Kumar was excellent in the last couple of games. 

As for C and VC, there are multiple quality options in play for this game, with openers from both sides being strong contenders. We have opted for Travis Head and Sai Sudharsan. Head has amassed 533 runs at a strike rate of over 200 whereas Sudharsan has scored 527 runs in the season. 

Match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win

The head to head record between these sides has a small sample size with Gujarat Titans winning three games and Sunrisers Hyderabad claiming one. Talking about this season, SRH have been in much better form and will have an edge in this game. They have the most destructive batting line-up in the league and bowlers have done a decent job. GT, on the other hand, have largely struggled in both departments. Our match prediction is that Sunrisers Hyderabad will win this game. 

Toss prediction: Gujarat Titans to win the toss and field first

The pitches in Hyderabad have been pretty flat and remain the same throughout the game. The potential dew factor also makes chasing a more tempting option. In the most recent fixture played here, 165 was chased down inside 10 overs. Our toss prediction is for Gujarat Titans to win the toss and opt to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: Travis Head 

Travis Head has been sensational in the ongoing IPL edition, taking on bowlers from the get go and demoralising the opposing teams. His attacking style of play has brought him enormous success, with 533 runs from 11 innings at an average of 53 while striking at an incredible rate of 201.89. He has smashed four fifties and a hundred in the tournament. 

Betting Odds

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1.58 (PARIMATCH)
  • Gujarat Titans: 2.38 (PARIMATCH)

The bookmakers have Sunrisers Hyderabad as strong favourites to win this match. SRH have 1.58 odds of winning this contest whereas GT head into the match with much higher odds of 2.38.
