SRH vs RR Today Match Prediction & Tips

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

Sunrisers Hyderabad will host Rajasthan Royals in what will be the 50th game of the 2024 Indian Premier League. Although they have lost their last two games, Sunrisers are still in a strong position after five wins but Rajasthan Royals are way out ahead at the top of the table on 16 points. Read on as we preview this match. The fixture gets underway at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad at 19:30 local time on Thursday 2nd May.

Defeats against Chennai Super Kings in Match 46 and Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Match 41 have seen Sunrisers Hyderabad drop down the table from a very strong position. However, we can still expect them to play an attacking brand of cricket which is likely to cause Rajasthan Royals plenty of problems.

Rajasthan Royals cruised home with an over to spare in their last game and they will arrive in Hyderabad with still only one defeat so far in this IPL. They will not be scared of Sunrisers’ aggressive batting line-up and will back themselves to record another victory.

With over 55% of IPL games at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium won by the team chasing, we are predicting that both captains will want to field first ahead of this match.

SRH vs RR Pitch Report

Spinners could be effective on this pitch but most are likely to be used defensively and to be asked to keep the run-rate down. It could be tough to bowl with the new ball on this surface with the ball likely to come onto the bat with good pace and we expect a par total of over 200 for the side batting first.

Hyderabad Weather Report

According to the weather forecast there will be clear skies throughout this contest on Thursday evening. Low humidity is predicted although the temperature will be in the mid-high thirties from start to finish in Hyderabad.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Mayank Markande missed out for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last game with Pat Cummins announcing that the side were playing an extra batter at the toss ahead of the match with CSK. No injuries have been reported ahead of this game on Thursday.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head – the Australian opener plays many unorthodox shots in all formats but he is extremely effective. So far he has hit two fifties and one hundred in the tournament.
  • Abhishek Sharma – The all-rounder has flourished in the opening role this season and will arrive at the crease in this game with 303 runs at a strike-rate of 214.89 so far in the IPL 2024.
  • Jaydev Unadkat – The 32 year old dismissed Daryl Mitchell in the last match of the campaign but will be looking forward to returning to Hyderabad where he took 3/30 in his last appearance.
  • T Natarajan – The pacer struck in the last over against CSK to get the big wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad. He comes into this match with at least one dismissal in every IPL game so far this season.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Mayank Markande, Glenn Phillips, Sundar Washington, Umran Malik, Anmolpreet Singh

In the last game, the switch was to take T Natarajan out during the batting innings with Anmolpreet Singh coming in. However, Sunrisers may opt for the all-round skills of Sundar Washington in this game if an early impact player is required.

SRH Team Form

Sunrisers Hyderabad had won four in a row before this current run of two defeats in a row.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Travis Head, Abishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, T Natarajan

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

With four of their five bowlers picking up wickets in the last game, and the batters getting Rajasthan over the winning line with six balls to spare, we do not expect to see changes to the XI ahead of this match. Jos Buttler did damage the webbing in his hand when fielding against LSG but that is not anticipated to keep him out of this game.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson – The captain is averaging 77.00 in this year’s tournament, the highest of any player with 160+ runs ahead of Wednesday’s match.
  • Jos Buttler – The England white ball skipper has already hit two centuries in the 2024 IPL and managed to score 34 runs from only 18 balls in the last match in spite of a slight injury to his hand.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal – The spinner was named in India’s T20 World Cup squad on Tuesday and he has been enjoying another very strong IPL.
  • Trent Boult – The New Zealand left-arm pace bowler is extremely dangerous with the new ball as Quinton de Kock found out in Match 44 when he was dismissed from the third ball of the game.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Yuzvendra Chahal, Tanush Kotian, Shubham Dubey, Navdeep Saini, Tom Kohler-Cadmore

It would be a huge surprise if Yuzvendra Chahal was not used once again during the fielding innings before being subbed out as soon as he has completed his four overs. Riyan Parag has been the batter to make way for him after the batting innings in the most recent games.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals continue to set the pace at the top of the table with eight wins from nine so far this season.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Rovman Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma

SRH vs RR Head to Head

With the teams all square on nine wins each from the first 18 head to head fixtures, the winner of this match will take an overall lead. Both sides enjoyed a win over the other during the 2023 IPL season.

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad have arguably reached greater heights in this year’s IPL so far but it is Rajasthan Royals who have played the consistent cricket and we think they have the greater number of match-winners in their team.

🏆 SRH vs RR Prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be desperate to avoid a third successive defeat but unfortunately for the hosts they are up against the strongest side in the tournament in Rajasthan Royals. We predict that Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to go on the attack from ball one with the bat and may well put up a strong total in either the first or second innings. However, Rajasthan Royals have plenty of depth to their batting as well as genuine variety in their bowling attack so we are backing them to win this clash.
