Ed Hawkins (@cricketbetting) picks out the value from Sunday’s double header in IPL 2019

<h2 style="text-align:center">Kolkata Knight Riders v Chennai Super Kings, Eden Gardens</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/kolkata-knight-riders-vs-chennai-super-kings-3753722/?mtid=6" target="_blank">Sunday 14 April, 11.30</a></p><p>Defeat for Kolkata Knight Riders in this one could see them tumble from first to sixth in the space of three matches. Losses to <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574/" target="_blank">Chennai</a> would bookmark the disappointing effort against Delhi Capitals on Friday.</p><p>Before that match we suggested that Kolkata were a one-man team. They have needed Andre Russell to go beyond. Had he been merely excellent, they would probably have lost three more matches. It is also notable that their spinners are just not getting to grip with the home surface. Russell, crucially, has an injury niggle and may not play.</p><p>Kolkata appear vulnerable batting first. Twas ever thus. They are a different kettle of fish, however, in the chase. Again, twas ever thus. Their attack has been too leaky in the field this year and last and, ultimately, it will cost them glory.</p><p>Super Kings have lost only once and although they are the strongest team by far, they have still managed sloppy efforts. They were mighty fortunate to get away with one against Rajasthan Royals last time out, requiring a Ben Stokes meltdown to take the points. In a chase, we would expect the Super Kings to be super.</p><h2>Best tips for the match</h2><p><strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank" title="Cricket Betting Odds"><em>Chennai Super Kings batting second 10/11 (1.91) William Hill </em></a></strong></p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center">Sunrisers Hyderabad v Delhi Capitals</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/sunrisers-hyderabad-vs-delhi-capitals-3753723/?mtid=6" target="_blank">Sunday 14 April 15.30</a></p><p>Sunrisers, pre-tournament favourites, are struggling, They have lost their last two and find themselves third from bottom. Defeat here and the play-offs will look a long way off.</p><p>That is why they are likely to bring back Kane Williamson, the captain. His presence in the side impacts their balance in a negative way but it is perhaps right that they need his cool head at the crease. He could make all the difference against a hot-headed Delhi team.</p><p>The Capitals got a good win under their belt against Kolkata but we’re still puzzled at their insistence at picking Keemo Paul ahead of Sandeep Lamichhane. If they make that call again, Sunrisers are on the cards for a confidence-boosting win. Otherwise, go in again on <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/david-warner-cricket-player-profile/89597/" target="_blank">David Warner</a> for top Sunrisers bat at 9/4 (3.25) (<a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank">Bet365</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank">William Hill</a>). He should be skinnier.</p><h2>Best tips for the match</h2><p><em><strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank" title="Cricket Betting Odds">David Warner top Sunrisers Hyderabad 9/4 Bet365</a></strong></em></p>
