SRH vs LSG Today Match Prediction & Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Lucknow Super Giants in the 57th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium and will start at 7:30 PM IST on May 8.

SRH suffered a defeat to Mumbai Indians in the previous game which meant that the team slipped to fourth on the points table. The race to the playoffs is getting stiff but SRH are still well placed, with 12 points in 11 games. A win in two out of the three games should be enough to help them to go through the playoffs; however, SRH’s recent form could be a cause of concern as they have lost three out of the last four games.

Meanwhile, LSG also have 12 points in six games which make the coming game very interesting. The winner of the game will take a big leap towards the playoff berth while the loser’s chances will take a massive dip. LSG suffered a 98 run loss to KKR in the previous game.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Marco Jansen has not been in great form thus SRH is almost certain to drop him for Glenn Phillips or Aiden Markram. They could play an extra bowler in the line-up, possibly Jaidev Unadkat, in place of Mayank Agarwal.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head – Travis Head has shown remarkable consistency in IPL 2024. He has been aggressive at the top and got SRH to fiery starts in most games. He has scored 444 runs this season at a strike rate of 180.
  • Heinrich Klaasen – Heinrich Klaasen’s few performances have not been great but he has been the biggest match winner for SRH this season, scoring 339 runs at an average of 42 and a strike rate of 186. Given his form, he won’t go too long before making a big impact and it could come against LSG.
  • T Natarajan – T Natarajan has enjoyed an excellent season with the ball. The left arm seamer has not allowed teams to get on top over SRH, playing a crucial role in SRH’s win. He has taken 15 wickets this season.
  • Pat Cummins – The captain has contributed heavily to SRH’s success this year. He has taken 13 wickets and also scored a few crucial runs for the team. He has truly justified the 20.75 crore price tag with his performances this year.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Javdev Unadkad/Travis Head, Umran Malik, Glenn Phillips, Anmolpreet Singh, Maynk Markande

If SRH chase, Travis Head could be the impact player and Jaydev Unadkat could be in playing XI while if SRH are batting first, then team could use Jaydev Unadkat as impact player, with Head in playing XI.

SRH Team Form

SRH have lost some form in the last few games, losing three out of the four matches. Overall, they have won six out of 11 matches.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram/Glenn Phillips, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Nitish Reddy, Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande/Umran Malik, T Natarajan, Jaydev Unadkat/Travis Head

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

Mayank Yadav has been ruled out of the game. LSG coach confirmed that Yadav might not be able to play more matches in IPL 2024. Also, Arshin Kulkarni has not done much so LSG would try to get Quinton de Kock back in playing XI in place of Ashton Turner.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul – As usual, Rahul has been the most consistent performer for LSG this season. The captain has led from the front, scoring 431 runs; however, a strike rate of just 141 might be a little less than what LSG would have wanted.
  • Marcus Stoinis –  Stonis has also been in great form and scored 352 runs, including a hundred and two fifties. Stoinis is one player if he stays at the wicket for significant time, he will win LSG the game from the most tough situations, like he did against CSK where he scored 124 to help LSG chase 211. 
  • Krunal Pandya – Krunal Pandya’s contribution to LSG often get unnoticed but he always performs well for the team in one way or the other. He has taken five wickets and scored less than 100 runs but if we look at his economy, which is less than 8, we can safely say that he has bowled fairly well this season.
  • Yash Thakur – Thakur has been mighty impressive. He has been the wicket taker for his team, taking 11 wickets in nine matches. He has leaked a few runs though, at 10.81 runs per over, but given that he has taken wickets as well, LSG would accept that economy as it has been a high scoring tournament.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Arshin Kulkarni, M Siddharth, K Gowtham, Yudhvir Singh, Quiton de Kock/Amit Mishra

LSG can use Quinton de Kock as impact player if they are bowling first while Amit Mishra could be used as an impact player if they are batting first. The other player can be slotted in the playing XI.

LSG Team Form

LSG have played 11 games, winning six and losing five. The team has been inconsistent in terms of results and struggled to put back to back wins more often than not.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul (c & wk), Quinton de Kock/Amit Mishra Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mohsin Khan, Yash Thakur

SRH vs LSG Head to Head

SRH have lost all the three games played against LSG, however, they have a good chance of pulling one back this year.

SRH vs LSG Betting Odds

SRH are getting the favourites tag on betting platforms. Both teams have blown hot and cold but SRH have performed well at home thus they are being backed by the punters.

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Lucknow Super Giants T20 Match?

We suggest backing SRH to win. SRH have done well at home so that will be a big psychological plus. Also, SRH have a destructive batting line-up and LSG’s bowling lacks a bit of experience. The bowlers could be put under pressure if SRH get off to a good start. 

🏆 SRH vs LSG Prediction

We are backing SRH to win. SRH are playing at home and they have a great record at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Also, SRH have more firepower in the team, with batters and bowlers in great form. Cummins, Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar make up for a strong attack thus it won’t be easy for LSG batters to score big runs. SRH are clear favourites to win.
