SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad will be taking on Rajasthan Royals in the 26th match of IPL 2020 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. There isn't much to separate the two teams in terms of head-to-head record, with the Sunrisers having won six of their eleven clashes with the Royals. Both the teams are top-heavy with the likes of J Buttler, S Smith, S Samson, D Warner, J Bairstow and M Pandey and the one which fires will have the highest chances for victory.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a decent tournament so far with 3 wins and 3 losses in six games. They will be very confident after the 69-run win in the last encounter against Kings XI Punjab with Bairstow and Warner putting on an opening masterclass. Their bowling has been good too despite Bhuvneshwar’s absence with Rashid Khan back to his best. They wouldn’t look at changing a winning combination against Rajasthan Royals.
Rajasthan Royals had an impressive start to IPL 2020 with a couple of wins at Sharjah, but have been on a losing spree ever since with their top-order failing badly. Buttler and Samson’s inconsistency has troubled them, while Smith has been getting out to uncharacteristic shots off late. Archer has been impressive with both bat and ball for them while the other bowlers have performed in patches. S Smith finally has some good news with B Stokes returning back to the set-up which should strengthen their struggling batting unit. A Tye should make way for B Stokes and there’s a case for R Uthappa to return back to the eleven.
The same deck which was used in RCB vs CSK game will be used and with this being an evening game, so expect the tracks to play slow. Spinners have generally been successful here with some decent turn available, unlike Abu Dhabi. The average 1st innings total here in IPL 2020 so far has been 179.

Let’s take a look at some best picks for SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction
D Warner – He returned to form with a couple of fifties in the last two games after a shoddy start to this season. Though there’s Archer in RR who has troubled him in the recent Eng vs Aus series and the googly threat from Gopal and Tewatia.
J Bairstow – He just fell short of a deserving hundred against KXIP last match and has lived up to the expectations this season after a splendid start to the IPL last year and can tee off against the Rajasthan Royals bowling attack.
R Khan – He’s back to his best with some great spells in the last few matches for SRH and the Dubai track will certainly assist him.
T Natarajan – The Tamilnadu pacer has been impressive with his control over the yorkers and the vulnerability of RR’s top-order could help him bag some cheap wickets at the death.

RR Playing 11 (probable)–
J Buttler (WK)
S Smith (C)
Let’s take a look at some best picks for SRH vs RR Today Match Prediction
J Buttler – The hard-hitting wicket-keeper batsman has been underperforming this season with just a single fifty to his name. SRH’s weakened bowling attack presents him an opportunity to get back to his best.
J Archer – He’s got all the skills to succeed in T20s with pace, bounce and variations in his armoury. He can really trouble the inexperienced middle-order of SRH at the death.
B Stokes – The all-round batsman can add some much-needed firepower in the batting unit of RR, while his bowling can come handy.
S Gopal – He hasn’t been at his attacking best this season but still his googlies have the venom to trouble the SRH batting unit.
Team Composition Preferences –
1). All Rounders – There’s a lot of differential picks available in this category and try to use it to your advantage.
2). Batsman – Pick a mixture of top-order batsmen and some quality middle-order bats.
3). Bowlers – Give more preference to spinners and regarding pacers pick the ones who bowl predominantly at the death.
4). Wicket-Keeper – Three quality options available here and can even go with a couple of them
Having more SRH players in the SRH vs RR Dream11 Match Prediction team is preferable.
Captaincy Picks –
Choose one of the top-order batsmen from both teams as your captain or make one of those utility all-rounders as the captain. If you want to go out of the box, choose a spinner as your captain.
Differential Picks –
R Tewatia – He’s been good with the ball bowling some good spells and has been reliable with the bat too. With the tracks at Dubai assisting spin, he can pick some wickets.
A Sharma – With the presence of J Buttler, S Smith and S Samson in RR batting unit, his left-arm spin could well be used by Warner. His batting points are a bonus.
