Sunrisers Hyderabad will host Rising Pune Supergiants in the match 22 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Sunrisers Hyderabad v Rising Pune Supergiants betting tips for this IPL encounter can be checked below.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a pretty decent start to the season so far, with three wins in five matches. After losing a couple of times initially, they moved on to gather some traction and proceeded to move to the fourth place in the table.
Hyderabad last played Kings XI Punjab, on Saturday evening. Having won the toss and choosing to field, they managed to restrict the already struggling Punjab team to just 143 runs in 20 overs. Mustafizur Rahman stole the show in bowling, with just nine runs and two wickets in his spell.
The hosts chased this target down by the 18th over, with David Warner once again playing a captain’s innings. In the previous match as well, when they handed Gujarat Lions their first defeat, he scored 74 runs off 48 balls while chasing.
As for Rising Pune Supergiants, they are in the same boat as that of Kings XI Punjab, except with a slightly better net run rate. Sitting at the seventh place, they have now lost four matches in a row.
This is definitely surprising, considering that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has captained well for his former side Chennai Super Kings. He will be eager to break this jinx, and in his previous fixture, he did come close. Facing Kolkata Knight Riders, they set a target of 160 runs, which their opponent chased in a nail biting finish by 2 wickets.
Their struggling squad dealt with another blow recently when they overseas batsman Kevin Pietersen got injured, and has been ruled out for the season. Meanwhile, Warner & co. continue to play superbly, with Rahman and Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading the way in bowling. They definitely have the upper hand here.
