Below is a pick I am selecting prior to the game, but keep folowing my twitter handle for the #IPL8 picks Please follow my on twitter @rahulm3 for live in-play tips with the HASHTAG #INPLAYMAGIC

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab
S Dhawan Under 26.5 runs @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 3 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)

D Miller – 28 & Over Performance Points @ 1.83 (Bet365) – 3 points

David Miller has been a fairly consistent performer over the years in the IPL and this pick has been eluded because it hasn’t shown up too often on the market.

Miller has been fairly consistent with his performances in the Kings XI Middle order; and especially with the absence of Maxwell, they have relied a lot on him to get runs. In some of their early batting collapses, they have often turned to him to rebuild. Miller infact has a career T20 batting average of 38 while an IPL average of 42, and frankly this market is superiorly under-priced. Additionally, Miller is frequently fielding at Long-On, Long-Off or Mid-Wicket where the ball tends to land a lot especially in the slog overs, and some how grabs a catch or 2 throughout his campaign.

His performance so far this campaign have been as follows:

v KKR: 27 points (27 runs)
v RCB: 7 points (7 runs)
v MI: 43 points (43 runs)
v DD: 42 points (42 runs)
v SRH: 35 points (15 runs, 2 catches)
v CSK: 13 points (3 runs, 1 catch)
v RR: 54 points (54 runs)
v DD: 5 points (5 runs)
v MI: 34 points (24 runs, 1 catch)
v RR: 33 points (23 runs, 1 catch)

I expect Miller to knock off these runs on his bat itself, but incase he might also grab a few catches on the reasonably big boundaries at Hyderabad
