Want to know about SunRisers Hyderabad betting for the IPL 2021 season? We’ve got you covered. This page is a complete guide to the SunRisers and includes everything you’ll need to make informed cricket betting choices this year.
In this guide you’ll find:
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to interrupt elite sport, and preparations for the 2021 IPL are no different. The 2020 season was delayed and played outside of India for just the 3rd time. The 2021 season will be affected too.
The provisional date for the 2021 auction is the 11th February, with franchises having to release their lists of retained and released players by 20th January. Further details of the auction have still not been decided, including the venue and due to the pandemic, all of these plans are subject to change.
As soon as the auction has been completed, we will update this page, preview the 2021 season and make predictions about Hyderabad. Be sure to check back in for the latest news on SRH and the 2021 Indian Premier League season soon.
The SunRisers Hyderabad betting odds to win the IPL 2020 are 5/1. This makes them the second favourite behind the Mumbai Indians to take this year’s crown. Another team many punters will fancy are the Chennai Super Kings. You can back them to win at a similar price to the SunRisers.
So, is IPL betting in 2020 a three-horse race? Not exactly. Given that there are only 8 teams and the winners are decided through playoffs, anything could happen. That’s one of the reasons cricket fans all over the world love the IPL so much – you never know what is going to happen.
This is also what makes cricket betting tips tricky, especially in t20 matches. However, we believe that by studying statistics and looking at the information available, you can make informed choices.
Given the history that the SRH have in the IPL, the players they have and last year’s performance, they are an excellent bet. At the very least, this talented squad of cricketers should make the play-offs and will be desperate to improve on their 4th place finish from last year.
But, with the power of Jonny Bairstow and last year’s orange cap winner, David Warner, at the top of the order they have enough to blow teams away. They also have the no.1 ranked t20 bowler in the world, Rashid Khan, and other world-class bowlers. Then there is Kane Williamson, the calm and collected Kiwi captain who acts as a glue and brings the best out of his team mates.
In terms of talent, the SunRisers Hyderabad are right at the top compared to other teams and are rightly favourites in IPL betting. Backing them to win this year is a solid bet.
The full SunRisers Hyderabad squad 2020 is:
|Shreevats Goswami||Wicketkeeper batsman|
|Wriddhiman Saha||Wicketkeeper batsman|
|Jonny Bairstow||Wicketkeeper batsman|
The biggest strength of the SunRisers squad for 2020 is the strength in depth. Few teams can call on such devastating overseas top order batsmen whilst having outstanding Indian pace bowlers and the no.1 t20 bowler as well.
A top 4 of Warner, Bairstow, Garg and Williamson will strike fear into the heart of many opposition attacks. The middle order isn’t bad but if Hyderabad don’t do well with the bat, their bowling attack is more than good enough to win matches.
The only issue facing the SunRisers coach, Trevor Bayliss, is which players to play and when. If he does opt to include his 3 overseas big guns in the top 4, the other overseas place would surely have to go to Afghani spinner, Rashid Khan. That means there will be no space for Mitchell Marsh.
Without Marsh and without an obvious place for Mohammad Nabi, the only concern the SunRisers Hyderabad will have going into the IPL 2020 season is a lack of finishers. It’s a crucial position in t20 cricket and the runs picked up by powerful batsmen in the final few overs can make or break an innings.
Nabi is the obvious candidate as a finisher and he had a very good tournament in 2019, however his inclusion would upset the balance of the 4 best overseas players, so he may only feature when there are injuries.
This is the biggest challenge facing the SunRisers – how to pick their best 11. If they do go with their overseas combination of Warner, Bairstow, Williamson and Khan, they will need to get runs on the board quickly as they probably won’t have a recognised finisher in the side.
The SunRisers Hyderabad have probably the most talented 4 overseas players at their disposal for the IPL 2020. In terms of importance, David Warner and Rashid Khan stand out.
Warner won the orange cap last year for a 3rd time – awarded to the batsman with the most runs. He was in devastating form and is one of the best opening batsmen the IPL has ever seen. If he can repeat that form again this year it will be crucial to the SunRisers hopes of success.
The middle order of this team is solid but really the foundation of SRH’s innings will be based on Warner and Bairstow going big and setting their team up.
The standout performer from the bowling attack is 21-year-old Rashid Khan. Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also an excellent weapon for the SunRisers, however Rashid Khan has the most individual potential to win games for his side.
Khan was excellent in the 2019 IPL season and especially on wickets that suit spinners, we expect him to get even better in 2020. The scary thing for the other IPL teams and International t20 teams across the world is that despite his experience, Khan is still a young man. He shows no sign of slowing and who knows how good he could be in his prime.
With such excellent individual players, it’s easy to see why the SunRisers Hyderabad are amongst the favourites to win the IPL in 2020. It’s realistic that a Sunriser could win both the orange cap, purple cap and the team could go on to win the overall 2020 prize.
The SunRisers Hyderabad have a shorter history than most in the Indian Premier League. They were not an original team and so have only played 7 seasons, however in that time they’ve only failed to make the playoffs twice.
After 2 disappointing years in 2014 and 15, the SunRisers won their first IPL title in 2016. Captain David Warner led from the front and as ever, scored the most runs for the SunRisers. The bowling attack was led by the exceptional Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who won the purple cap that year.
The SunRisers put in 2 very good performances against table toppers Gujarat Lions and then Royal Challengers Bangalore to secure their victory.
Another notable year for the SRH was 2018 where they ultimately finished as runners up. David Warner was banned due to the Australian ball tampering scandal and so Kiwi Kane Williams replaced the Aussie as captain.
He did an excellent job in filling Warner’s significant shoes. Scoring the most runs and guiding his team to the IPL final. However, it wasn’t to be, and they were dominated by Chennai Super Kings in the final and ultimately lost by 8 wickets. Would it have been a different story if Warner had played? Very possibly as his importance to the side cannot be underestimated.
The SunRisers have shown themselves to be one of the most consistent franchises in the IPL and every year they maintain an outstanding squad of overseas and Indian talent. This balance and team management is one of the keys to their success.
SunRisers Hyderabad betting odds suggest that the team has a great chance to win again this year. Given the depth of their squad and sheer amount of talent at their disposal, we think they are a very good bet.
One of the major pros for the Hyderabad franchise is the balance in their side. The only possible area of weakness would be a finisher, but they have such outstanding overseas players, they should be able to cope.
They also have an excellent blend of youth and experience. In the bowling attack for example, young spinner, Rashid Khan, will be looking to take the purple cap and can lean on the experience of team mate, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has done it twice before. And there is no more calming Captain in the game of cricket than the man they call ‘Cool Cat’, Kane Williamson.
Another benefit to betting on the SunRisers is that their odds are slightly higher than the favourites Mumbai. We think they have just as good a chance but if they do win and you bet on them, you will win more.
Kane Williamson will retain the captaincy of the SunRisers Hyderabad for the 2020 IPL season.
Johnny Bairstow will most likely continue as a wicket-keeper opening batsman for SRH in 2020. He had an outstanding year with the bat in 2019 and was solid with the gloves.
David Warner was the leading run scorer for the SunRisers Hyderabad in 2019. He also scored more than any other player in the league and won the orange cap.
Johnny Bairstow had the best batting average for the SunRisers in 2019. He also has the highest batting average overall in the history of the IPL.
Rashid Khan and Siddarth Kaul both had 21 wickets each for SRH in the 2018 Indian Premier League season.
