HYD vs RAJ MPL Team: Two Australian captains will be leading their side today in the Indian Premier League Season 13 as David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on his partner in crime, Steve Smith’s Rajasthan Royals today afternoon at Dubai. Sunrisers have 3 wins and 3 losses from the 6 matches they have played while Rajasthan, after their two wins in two matches, have suffered four consecutive defeats. RR are playing horrible cricket and they need to get their act together in this match as it has been two weeks since they won a match and if they lose today, there is no coming back. SRH have had troubles starting and with injuries as two of their key players, Mitchell Marsh and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, are out of the tournament but they are a gritty side and have improved their performance and are clear favorites to win this game.
Fixture: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals, Match 26, IPL 2020
Date: Sunday, 11th October 2020
Time: 3:30 PM (IST); 2:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: We have seen in Dubai that the team that bat first has had more success then the chasing team and both SRH and RR will be desperate to win the toss and bat first also taking in account the scorching heat of Dubai as it’s an afternoon game. Any total above 170 will be tough to chase.
Team News HYD: SRH had to make forced changed because of the injury troubled but now they have settled in as every player knows his role. We expect them to play the same team that beat CSK in their last game.
Team News RAJ: The biggest headline today is that Ben Stokes is back! He is likely to force his way into SRH vs RR MPL Fantasy Cricket Tips teams. The star English all-rounder has completed his quarantine and will play his first match today. All eyes will be on him as he is a match-winner but his job won’t be easy as he has not played any cricket for so long and his team is in disarray.
Expected Change: Ben Stokes replacing Andrew Tye is the obvious change that will happen today. Rajasthan may also bring in Robin Uthappa in place of Jaiswal for the opening slot.

Jonny Bairstow: Bairstow missed a hundred last time he batted and he would be feeling great about his batting. He has been very good, once again, for SRH and is the key to their batting. We have seen Jonny go big even after reaching his fifty and that’s the quality you should look for in your Fantasy Team’s captain.
Jos Buttler: Buttler has been miserable this season and that’s one of the main reasons why RR is looking at an early exit. Buttler has to fire in this match or a lot of questions will raise. He is already a T20 great and must not think too much and just go with a free mind. Law of averages is on Buttler’s side and you expect him to come good this afternoon.
David Warner: Warner knows how to score runs and he has been bating decently and has two fifties in last two matches. However, he hasn’t batting with the fluency we see with him. But as long as he gets those runs you will be happy, right? So make better decisions while making SRH vs RR Today Match Prediction.
Sanju Samson: Samson announced himself brilliantly with two high-class innings and everybody was talking about him, but what followed was heart-breaking. Samson hasn’t been able to get into double figures in his past 4 outings and seems to have lost his confidence altogether. But we expect good players to come back strongly when the chips are down and we expect the same from Sanju.
X-Factors – Differential Picks
Rashid Khan: He is arguably the best T20 bowler currently and he is surely bowling like one. Rashid’s presence in the bowling attack seems to have an impact on the opposition as they keep thinking about what they will do to him which leads to mistakes. Rashid is among wickets and he is a safe bet.
Ben Stokes: Yes, Stokes is here! It is true that Stokes is a slow starter and expecting him to start firing from the word go even though he hasn’t played much cricket off late is not fair. But it is Stokes that we are talking about, if has been fighting odds all his life and we are glad to welcome him back!
