RR vs SRH Team Previews

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals made a strong start to the season and were leading the points table for quite a while. However, they have faced 4 defeats in their last 5 outings and now find themselves in a cluttered mid-table position.

The Royals have a well-balanced side but some of their key players have shown poor form in recent matches. Jos Buttler had a brilliant start to the season but has been seen struggling in the middle. He is so important to the Royals that a lack of runs from him is a massive headache for the team management.

Similarly, Shimron Hetmeyer, who had won RR quite a few matches thanks to his hard-hitting abilities in the death overs, has been dismissed for single-digit scores in each of his last 5 innings. We expected Hetmyer to be a bit subdued in conditions where spin will dominate.

In such a situation, there will be extra pressure on the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, and Dhruv Jurel to score runs here. The youngsters have done very well for RR and that is a huge positive. Picking Jaiswal in your fantasy team is a no-brainer right now.

The Royals have a pretty good bowling unit at their disposal and they have done a decent job so far. The spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal have picked up 13 wickets each while Trent Boult has 10 wickets against his name.

Sandeep Sharma and Adam Zampa have chipped in too and will be looking to bowl another good spell here. Facing an out-of-form Sunrisers, the Rajasthan Royals have a good chance of bouncing back here.

With the pitches getting slower. We think, the spinners will do the most damage.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad had one of the strongest teams on paper and most experts predicted that they were one of the favorites to make it to the playoffs. However, the team has been underwhelming, to say the least, and has struggled in most of their matches so far. With just 3 wins to show from 9 matches, they are among the bottom two teams on the table.

Aiden Markram will be pretty disappointed with the result of their latest match. At one stage, the team was cruising along as they chased a target of 172 against the KKR, as they needed just 38 runs from the last 5 overs, with 5 wickets in hand. However, they botched up to lose the match and crashed to their 4th defeat in 5 matches.

While the return of form for Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen is a positive for the team, the woes in their batting line-up continue. Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, and Abhishek Sharma lack consistency and Harry Brook is proving to be the biggest dud in the team. Barring his century at Eden Gardens, he has failed to contribute meaningfully to the team.

The bowling too has been a disappointment. Much was expected from the pace department as it contained some big names including Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik, and Marco Jansen. Yet, it is the spinner, Mayank Markande, who is the leading wicket-taker for them.

The Sunrisers will have to come up with something special if they want to beat RR here.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitches here have been a bit of a mixed bag. However, we can expect a more even contest between the bat and the ball. There is a good amount of bounce on offer but the surface tends to slow down as the match progresses. Anything over 170 will be tricky to chase here.

The weather is expected to remain warm with temperatures of over 30 degrees Celsius. However, we can expect some wind blowing through the ground, helping the seamers get some swing. 


RR vs SRH Betting Tips

While the Rajasthan Royals have struggled a bit in the last few matches, this match provides them with the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways. The visitors have lacked the intent and the determination to win and we expect their struggles to continue.

Bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win.

    Highest opening partnership

    Rajasthan Royals (1.725)


The opening pair of Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal is one of the strongest in this season of the IPL and has given the Rajasthan Royals some good starts. On the other hand, the Sunrisers are still struggling to find the right opening combination. As a result, we are backing RR to have a bigger opening partnership here.

    Total 4’s in the Match

    Under 28.5 (1.91)


The pitch at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium isn’t the easiest to bat on and the batsmen will struggle to score runs. As both teams aren’t in the best of forms with the bat, we are likely to see under 28.5 4’s here. We have seen low-scoring matches in Jaipur so far and that suggests another potential match where boundaries are hard to come by.

    Jos Buttler Total Runs

    Over 26.5 (1.83)


The Sawai Mansingh Stadium has been one of the favorite hunting grounds for Jos Buttler. He has scored over 26.5 runs in 7 out of his last 8 matches here and given the underperforming bowling unit of the SRH, we are expecting a good score from him here. With a player like Buttler, it is uncommon that you go large stretches of time without seeing a big score and that is what we are banking on here.
