SRH vs RR Today Match Prediction & Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Qualifier IPL 2024

SRH will take on RR in the Qualifier 2 of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai and will start at 7:30 PM IST on May 24.

SRH were blown away by KKR in the Qualifier 1 however the fact that they finished second on the points table gave them another opportunity to qualify for the final. SRH played outstanding cricket throughout the tournament, posting some massive scores en route to the playoffs, but all their defeats followed a particular pattern where their batters failed to put enough runs on the board.  This is the biggest concern for SRH heading into the Qualifier 2. It is a must-win game and the team can’t afford to endure another poor outing with the bat. 

Meanwhile, RR picked up a comprehensive win over RCB in the Eliminator to qualify for the second knockout game. Chasing a target of 172, the team cruised to a win by 4 wickets. RR will be pleased with the effort of the bowlers, however, they will be delighted to see Yashasvi Jaiswal score some runs in the Eliminator. Jaiswal, one of the key batters of the side, has been in poor form but scored a brisk 45 in the last game. Overall, both teams are evenly matched and the game is set up for a cracking affair.

SRH vs RR Pitch Report

The surface at the Chepauk Stadium will be on the slower side. There will be some grip and turn as well and conditions won’t be the easiest to bat. A score of 180 should be a par score here.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

No changes are expected in the SRH team. The team did lose to KKR in Qualifier 1 but almost every player has contributed to the team’s success at some point in the tournament. However, if there is one change that SRH could make, then it would be Sanvir Singh making way for Jaydev Unadkat, however, it is unlikely as Sanvir adds depth to the batting and Unadkat is a pure bowler. 

SRH Key Players

  • Abhishek Sharma- Abhishek Sharma played a massive role in SRH’s juggernaut in IPL 2024. The southpaw was at his destructive best and 470 runs at a strike rate of 207. In a high-pressure game, if Sharma can keep form and play the way he has played in the tournament, SRH chances of qualifying for the final will increase manifold.
  • Travis Head- Travis Head might have got out for ducks in the last two games but everyone is aware of the match winning abilities he possesses. Head has scored over 533 runs in the tournament and don’t be surprised if he brings out his best in a must win game.
  • Pat Cummins- Pat Cummins has done everything a captain could have done for his team in IPL 2024. He has got wickets, scored crucial runs and made outstanding leadership decisions. Cummins has taken 16 wickets in IPL 2024 and he would like to add a few more to his tally in Qualifier 2.
  • T Natarajan- Natarajan did remarkably well in the league stage and accounted for 18 wickets. On a sluggish Chepauk surface, Natarajan, with his variations and cutters, will be SRH’s biggest weapon.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Umran Malik, Glenn Phillips, Washinton Sundar, Jaydev Unadkat, T Natarajan/Travis Head

Head could be the impact player if SRH are batting second while T Natarajan could be slotted in as impact player if the team is batting first.

SRH Team Form

SRH suffered a defeat to KKR in the Qualifier 1, however, the team played outstanding cricket in the league stage and won eight out of the 14 matches.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Nitish Reddy, Rahul Tripathi, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Sanvir Singh, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, T Natarajan/Travis Head

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan Royals would also not make many changes in the playing XI. Sanju Samson confirmed that he along with a few players are not well, however, the players should be available to play even if they are not 100 per cent fit given the significance of the game.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson- Sanju Samson will hold the key for Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 2. Samson had a great run in IPL 2024 and scored 521 runs in 14 games. The captain will be eyeing another good show in Qualifier 2 and his performance will be vital for RR in their quest to reach IPL final.
  • Riyan Parag-  Parag has been in a zone of his own this season. Game after game, Parag proved his match winning abilities with crucial innings. His knock of 36 was significant to RR’s win over RCB in Qualifier 1 and he would like to make a similar impact in the second knockout game. Parag has scored 567 runs in IPL 2024.
  • Trent Boult- Trent Boult bowled a magnificent spell of 1-16 against RCB. In a big game, the senior pacer proved his worth but the job is not done yet. SRH are a top heavy side and Boult will have a job on hand when he takes the new ball in Qualifier 2. If he can remove the top order batters early, SRH could explode to a below par score.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- Yuzvendra Chahal hasn’t been at his best in recent few games but the surface of Chennai will be a big advantage to him. Chahal will be the trump card for Samson on the sluggish Chepauk surface and could well bring out Chahal’s best performance of the season.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Nandre Burger, Shubham Dubey, Shimron Hetmyer, Tanush Kotian, Donavon Ferreria

Hetmyer will be the most likely impact player if RR is chasing. However, if they are batting first and get a good start, RR may not use Hetmyer and play Nandre Burger as an impact player.

RR Team Form

RR lost some form in recent matches and suffered defeats in last four league game. However, the team bounced back strong to win the Eliminator against RCB.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Rovman Powell, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal
