Sunrisers Hyderabad to win this match
Taking into account the current form and team combination, this SRH side must be able to outcast the men in pink, even in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. So SRH is winning this match, as per our today match prediction.
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.
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (UAE)
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
Expert free tip for Fantasy cricket and IPL betting tips
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.
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
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. Natarajan, Shreyas Gopal
RR- Jos Buttler
SRH- David Warner/Jonny Bairstow
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.
