SRH vs RR Prediction: Toss, Pitch, Cricket Betting Tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2020 Match 26

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals

Indian Premier League 2020, Match 26

Date & Time: 11 October, 2020 at 3:30PM IST

Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE

SRH vs RR Prediction:

To start the doubleheader Sunday we have a blockbuster clash between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad lined up. Both teams are led by star Australian players Steve Smith and David Warner respectively. SRH who are currently well placed than RR would start off as favourites even though the addition of Ben Stokes makes RR a fairly better side. Whatever be the end results, the match promises to be a nail-biting encounter.


Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • The best opening pair among 8 teams. Record of Warner-Bairstow speaks for themselves.
  • With Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Priyam Garg finding form, they have almost strengthened the middle order.
  • Rashid Khan and T.Natarajan are in great form with the ball.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • In Buttler, Smith, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top three that a T20 team could ever wish for.
  • The addition of Ben Stokes gives much-needed stability to the team.
  • Most of their players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer provides much greater batting depth to RR.
  • In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.


Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Young Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad are their fifth and sixth bowling options. Especially in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it can be a weak link. Opposition teams are expected to target these four overs.
  • With Bhuvneshwar Kumar being ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2020, their pace bowling department is weakened.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • RR’s bowling is a huge worry. Apart from Jofra Archer none of them have been consistent enough.
  • Both their premier batsmen, Sanju Samson and Steve Smith are struggling for form after the first two matches.
  • RR doesn’t have a good enough spin attack.

Sunrisers Hyderabad to win this match

RR does not have a well potent bowling attack to counter a much stronger SRH top order. So if you are in for online IPL betting, place your money on SRH.

Despite the dream start they got, Rajasthan Royals failed to carry on that momentum and went under the radar in the last four matches. The form of their star players Steve Smith and Sanju Samson is the greatest worry for RR. To add little hope to their remaining campaign, their star English all-rounder Ben Stokes is expected to join them for this match. His presence would provide the much-needed stability in the middle order and it is also a major boost to the bowling department. His inclusion would mean that Andrew Tye who got the major thrashing in the last match will be making his way out. As for SRH, they are not expected to make any changes to the winning combination.

SRH Playing XI: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma

RR Playing XI: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Mahipal Lomror, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Kartik Tyagi, Varun Aaron/Jaydev Unadkat

SRH vs RR Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

Despite being a large ground, Dubai has seen many high scoring games in IPL 2020. Unlike the predictions from the experts that pitch would dry up as the tournament reaches the middle stage, it hasn’t been the case so far. It still suits seam bowlers and batsmen quite really well. Looking purely at the stats, batting first would be the ideal choice in this pitch.

If Rajasthan Royals bat first: 160-170

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bat first: 160-170

Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.

Top Batsman

SRH- David Warner

David Warner is one of the most consistent batsmen in IPL history. With a weak bowling unit at the opposition, he will be in attacking mode from ball one.

RR- Jos Buttler

We are yet to see the best of Jos Buttler in this year's IPL. With his team needing a turnaround, the chances of that happening today are quite high.

Other Prominent Options: Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith

Top Bowler

RR- Jofra Archer

The only RR bowler who has done comparatively well so far is Jofra. With him in fine form, RR would be pinning their hopes on him to provide early breakthroughs with the ball.

SRH- Rashid Khan

The spin magician got back to form in the last match. As for IPL betting tips, he is a sure shot bowler to invest your money in.

Other Prominent options: T. NatarajanShreyas Gopal

Most Sixes

RR- Jos Buttler

Rashid Khan

SRH's chances in this match depend heavily on Spin King Rashid Khan. Taking into account his current form, he is expected to do that job and bag the prestigious Player of the Match award.
