SRH vs RR Prediction: There were two great matchups in the IPL yesterday. In the first game, Chennai Super Kings beat the Kolkata Knight Riders in a thrilling last-ball finish. Later in Dubai, Royal Challengers Bangalore comfortably won against the Mumbai Indians by 54 runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad now take on the Rajasthan Royals in Match 40. Sunrisers are down and out and have little chance of making the playoffs. They failed to chase down 125 runs in the last game versus Punjab Kings. On the other hand, the Royals can climb the table today with a win. They also head into the game on the back of a defeat versus the Delhi capitals.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals
Match 40, Indian Premier League
27 September 2021, 07:30 PM IST
Dubai International Cricket Stadium
The match will be broadcasted live on Star Sports Network and it can also be streamed on Hotstar App. The matches are split in three venues- Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah. IPL is broadcasted to almost 100 countries including all cricket-playing nations.
SRH vs RR Head to Head: It is even stevens between the two teams as both have won seven games against each other.
SRH – 40%
RR – 60%
RR have more on the line today while SRH will be playing without any pressure. The middle order of both the teams is a concern. We feel that the sun might finally shine on the Sunrisers and they might come away with a win. The betting sites seem to favor the Royals slightly.
Bet365: SRH: 2.10; RR: 1.72
Sanju Samson has been in fine form. He is presently his team’s highest run-getter, with 351 runs scored in nine games at an average of 50.14 and a strike rate of 141.53. He was undefeated on 70 in the last game, although his knock went in vain.
Chris Morris has been in exemplary form with the ball for the Royals. He has not let the price tag affect his performance. Morris has 14 wickets in eight games but he has been slightly expensive this year. He can also contribute with the bat.
Jason Holder is a solid all-rounder. He almost won Sunrisers the game last time with the bat. He scored an unbeaten 47 in the last game and has taken 6 wickets in three games.
SRH Playing XI
Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma.
RR Playing XI
Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Chetan Sakariya, Kartik Tyagi, Mustafizur Rahman
The wicket in Dubai has slowed down and is assisting the spinners. The longish boundaries also help their cause. 150-160 could be a winning total on this ground. There might be some dew in the latter stages which will aid batting. The side winning the toss might elect to bowl first.
If SRH bats first: 150-160
If RR bats first: 160-170
Like previous matches at Dubai, cloudless skies will continue today with maximum temperature during the day climbing to 38 degrees Celsius. With a clear night, the temperature is expected to be 33 to 34 degrees Celsius for most of the playing period. It will feel like 41 to 42 degrees due to a humidity level of around 50% coupled with light wind.

ALL-ROUNDERS: C Morris, J Holder
