Rajasthan v Hyderabad
Sky Sports Cricket, 11.30am Sunday

Twenty20 cricket is supposed to be a batsman's game but Sunrisers Hyderabad have successfully defended totals of 132-6 and 118 in their last two outings.

The Sunrisers won those games a shade cosily in the end, beating Kings XI Punjab by 13 runs and bowling out Mumbai for 87 to seal a 31-run victory.

Their bowlers will be hoping for more joy against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur but the Royals have a dangerous batting line-up including the in-form Sanju Samson and England pair Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler.

Stokes, last season's MVP in the IPL, has taken only one wicket in six games this term but his batting is starting to click with scores of 45 and 40 in his last two games and he is a decent price to top-score.

Recommendation
B Stokes top Rajasthan runscorer
1pt 9-2 general

 

Bangalore v Kolkata
Sky Sports Cricket, 3.30pm Sunday

Bangalore's all-star cast continue to underachieve, with the honourable exception of AB de Villiers, but they are favourites to beat a Kolkata side who have lost their last two games after a bright start to the season.

Kolkata won the reverse fixture by four wickets but De Villiers top-scored with 44 for Bangalore and the South Africa superstar is worth backing to continue his golden form.

He will be delighted to be back at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, where he has made scores of 57, 20, 90 not out and 68 in four appearances this season.

Recommendation
AB de Villiers top Bangalore runscorer
2pts 5-2 general
