IPL match predictions 2017

SRH

The Sunrisers Hyderabad are the defending champions from the last season and will look to build on the form that they left off in the final of last year. The side will be captained by the demolishing little master from Australia in David Warner.

SRH has a few newly added players into it’s unit. Afghanistan cricketers in Nabi, Rashid; alongside Ben Laughlin from Australia and Chris Jordan from England will add to the side’s foreign unit. Kane Williamson, Ben Cutting and Mushtafizur Rehman were retained by SRH.

Local talent in Yuvraj Singh, Naman Ojha, Hooda, Tanmay Agarwal and Ashish Nehra will add weight to the side and their experience will come in handy; alongside a strong combination of overseas players.

RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore has been hit for the initial part of the tournament due to absence of Virat Kohli. We’re also given to understand that AB De Villiers will also be out of the first match.

Chris Gayle remains the mighty sword of the RCB – with a less than impressive last season as per his standards for the Caribbean giant, 2017 needs him to perform big for RCB more than ever. In absence of senior players like Kohli and ABD, Gayle has pressure to perform and with him opening the batting, a good start will be key to RCB’s success in tonight’s encounter.

Tymal Mills, fast bowler from England was purchased by RCB in the auctions and might play in tonight’s match. The young and talented batsman who can also offer quality off-spin in Travis Head might also play due to absence of ABD. Shane Watson will lead the side in absence of Kohli and his performance as an all-rounder can very well balance the RCB unit for the tournament.start will be key to RCB’s success in tonight’s encounter.

The local talent in RCB includes Stuart Binny Iqbal Abdulla, Kedar Jadhav, Mandeer Singh, Sachin Baby and S Arvind but lacks a big name in the local pool as compared to SRH – who have Yuvraj Singh and Nehra to give balance to side with their experience whilst being locals.

Match Prediction 

All in all, the first match looks to be a thrilling encounter in the making. The Royal Challengers Bangalore has been hit hard by absence of Kohli and ABD but with Gayle and Watson there; you cannot rule them out.

Sunrisers Hyderabad though still go into the match as favorites though, with a strong looking overseas unit to pick from and an equally talented local pool – SRH look formidable to start their 2017 campaign on a winning note.

IPL Prediction, First Innings Score.

IF RCB Bat First :

With Gayle at top of the order, RCB can expect a blazing start should he get going. Explosive batsmen like Watson, Head and Baby strengthening the middle order, we predict that RCB should make a total in excess of 160+.

IF SRH Bat First :

Warner at the top with Dhawan, it’s ought to be a start off to a flyer. Yuvraj, Ojha, Tanmay and Hooda have it in themselves to push a good start into a massive first innings total and therefore we predict a total of 170+ should SRH bat first.

IPL 2017 Key Player Prediction : Will it be Gayle’s day?

We predict that with this being the first match of the tournament, Gayle should score in excess of 20 but lower than 50.

Who’ll win today?
