Sunrisers' chance to move back into top four | PunterPolls Prediction
In-form teams are entitled to the odd bad day. On Sunday, Chennai Super Kings, on top with 18 points and a step away from the playoffs, had one. Nobody would have expected the table leaders to go tumbling for 79, the lowest team score in this IPL. The captain MS Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming conceded it was good in a way that the meltdown happened now, rather than in the later stages, when qualifications for the playoffs are at stake. Super Kings have relied on their batting depth to get them this far, but the slow pitch in Hyderabad will test them.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, like Mumbai Indians, haven't lost a game at home. They have a chance at making it back to the top four. They are presently at No.5 and a win will knock Royal Challengers Bangalore down a notch. Momentum is on their side, after two consecutive wins.
Look at the Risers performance throughout the tournament and you will find how good they have played, especially at their home ground. We have seen earlier that CSK been supported by most of the punters in each match but look at the ratio here and you will find the punters are quite optimistic about Risers win here. And why not, Chennai batsmen didn't performed well at Mumbai's slow pitch and Hydrabad pitch is not different.
According to our experts, Team chasing the target does have an extra advantage but again if Dhoni's team bat first and put 150+ on this pitch, we would like to go with the CSK only.
