With the playoffs drawing near, today’s IPL clash sees the Sunrisers Hyderabad hosting the surging Mumbai Indians.
The home team currently lie in fourth, still in the final playoff position, but have lost their last two games. The Indians, by contrast, lie in top spot and have won their last three games.
And it’s with the Indians that we at Lap of the Odds see a potential bargain.
The league leaders have been using English wicket keeper Jos Buttler as an opener, with instructions to get things going quickly. However, Buttler has to return to national duty, and this leaves a gap in players to accelerate the innings.
Eyes turn to West Indian man mountain Kieron Pollard. The all rounder batted up the innings last time out and responded with runs, just being pipped for top scorer. At 13/2 with Stan James, he looks a good price to be top scorer for the Indians today.
Recommendation: Pollard to be top runs scorer for Mumbai Indians at 13/2, Stan James
