IPL 2024 Outright tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad - 9/1

Australia's Pat Cummins and Travis Head ended India's dream of a home triumph in last year's 50-over World Cup and they could be set for more success in the IPL.

After a disappointing 2023 campaign, Sunrisers Hyderabad went big in the player auction, recruiting Cummins as captain and bringing in Head, who scored a match-winning century in November's World Cup final win over India.

The dynamic left-hander is also a brilliant T20 player and the Sunrisers have arguably the strongest group of overseas stars in the tournament.

Cummins and Head are joined by South Africa internationals Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen and Marco Jansen as well as Sri Lanka spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who is one of the most in-demand all-rounders on the franchise circuit. 

Head, Markram and Klaasen will need to do the bulk of the runscoring but Cummins should be well supported by Indian bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik and Mayank Markande so the Sunrisers' prospects look bright.

IPL 2024 To Finish Bottom tips

Punjab Kings - 4/1

Punjab Kings appeared to have a slightly muddled strategy at the all-important IPL player auction and their reliance on England's Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes may leave them vulnerable.

Veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan shoulders plenty of runscoring responsibility given the Kings' weak middle-order and their spin attack is also a concern.

Punjab finished eighth out of the 10 IPL franchises last season, when their bowling attack struggled. Before then they had four successive sixth-placed finishes but they may end up bottom of the pile this time around.  

Several of Punjab Kings' overseas players were involved in England's disastrous World Cup defence in India last autumn and another tough campaign is on the cards.

The Kings lack matchwinners in the middle-order and, while their pace attack is decent, their squad does not appear any stronger than the one who struggled in last season's IPL. 

IPL 2024 Top Batter tips

Sai Sudharasan (Each-Way) - 22/1

Gujarat Titans have reached the IPL final in each of their first two seasons as a franchise, winning the trophy in 2022 before losing to Chennai last year.

Star batsman Shubman Gill was sensational in 2023, scoring 890 runs in 17 innings, and the Titans' new captain can expect solid support from exciting youngster Sai Sudharsan.

The number three only made his IPL debut in 2022 but he was hugely impressive last term, scoring 362 runs in eight knocks at a rollicking strike-rate of 141.

The left-hander has already caught the eye of India's selectors, scoring 55 not out and 63 in his first two ODIs against South Africa in December, and he looks a great each-way bet in the Top Batter market.
