SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction: Two professionals from Sydney will lead their respective teams in an interesting clash today in the IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad will host Rajasthan Royals in an afternoon game at Dubai. Rajasthan Royals are in desperate situation and return of Ben Stokes will definitely boost their confidence. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be looking to continue their winning momentum to accumulate another two points. We will preview SRH vs RR Dream11 contest.
Sunrisers Hyderabad handed a hammering to Kings XI Punjab in their last match. Opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner finally came to the party as both put on a masterclass by adding 160 runs in 15 overs. Jonny Bairstow missed out on a hundred and was dismissed on 97 while David Warner made 52. Kane Williamson applied the finishing touches as SRH compiled 201 from their 20 overs. In reply, all the bowlers did very well to defend the score comfortably. Rashid Khan was stand-out performer with the spell of 4-1-12-3 while T Natarajan and Khaleel Ahmed picked up two wickets each.
Rajasthan Royals have lost four consecutive matches after their first two wins. In the last match at Sharjah, bowlers did very well to restrict Delhi Capitals to 184 runs even after assaults from Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer. Jofra Archer scalped 3 important batsmen while Kartik Tyagi and Rahul Tewatia also bowled well. In reply, they again lost Jos Buttler, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson cheaply. Once they were gone, RR were always chasing the game. Yashasvi Jaiswal struggled to get going in his innings of 34 runs while Rahul Tewatia made 38 in the closing overs to narrow the margin of defeat. RR lost the match by 46 runs in the end.
There is not much traditional history between these two sides in IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad are having a minor advantage with 6 wins while 5 matches have gone Rajasthan Royals’ way. SRH have been dominant in recent matches with 4 victories out of last 5 matches. Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad when both teams last met in UAE during the 2014 edition.
Pitch and Conditions
This match will be played on the same pitch from last night’s game between CSK & RCB. It showed the signs of slowing up in the second innings as CSK batsmen struggled to score freely. Teams batting first have won major chunk of the matches at this venue this year and toss will be a crucial factor in the afternoon game today as well.

Competition: IPL 2020
Date: 11th October 2020
Time: 3:30 PM IST
Stadium: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
We are not expecting any changes to SRH playing XI from their last match against KXIP.
David Warner and Jonny Bairstow will be their opening pair and are one of the most fearsome batting pairs going around in T20 cricket right now.
Manish Pandey is looking for a substantial score this year after some good starts. Kane Williamson has done well and used his experience to the maximum effect. Three young guns Abdul Samad, Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma have been used according to the match situations in the batting lineup.
In the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, SRH needed Rashid Khan to stand up and take the responsibility. He has done that perfectly in last couple of matches. T Natarajan has been excellent in the season while there is some room for improvements in Khaleel Ahmed and Sandeep Sharma in SRH vs RR Dream11 prediction.

Rajasthan Royals Team News
With Ben Stokes eligible to play today, a couple of changes are expected in Rajasthan Royals playing XI.
Jos Buttler has looked in good form and the inclusion of Ben Stokes down the order may prompt him to play even more aggressively at the top. Yashasvi Jaiswal needs to make use of the powerplay overs without worrying too much.
Steve Smith should look to anchor the innings and any other role is not ideal for him in T20 cricket. Sanju Samson has 4 single digit scores after the first two outings. It will be interesting see the batting position of Ben Stokes today.
Mahipal Lomror and Rahul Tewatia are other batters in the middle order but former may play out of his position if team management decides to use Ben Stokes in the middle overs.
Varun Aaron proved expansive in the last match but he is likely to get another opportunity. Jofra Archer and Kartik Tyagi are confirmed starters but the form of Shreyas Gopal has been a concern for RR this season.

For Small Leagues
Jonny Bairstow has been one of the top performing limited overs players in world cricket for last couple of years. He already has three 50+ scores this year from 6 innings. Once he gets set, he usually goes for a concrete score as we saw in the last match against KXIP. He has the tendency to get on a roll with his form in T20 cricket.
David Warner has been one of the most consistent T20 batsmen going around. And add that to the pace at which he scores, his record becomes extra-ordinary. He plays second fiddle if Jonny Bairstow is going all guns blazing but his own returns are also brilliant. He is currently at fourth position in top run-scores’ list and an obvious pick for the captaincy position.
Jos Buttler has not been consistent this year but the risk of missing out on him is not worth taking. He slammed 70 against Mumbai Indians just a match before at Abu Dhabi. And with no major international fast bowlers in SRH ranks, he should fancy his chances today.
Rashid Khan has picked up 8 wickets so far in the competition but the main advantage with him is that he rarely goes through a bad game. If he is not getting wickets, he creates enough pressure on the batsmen. But given that RR middle order is low on confidence, you can expect some points from this Afghanistan champion.
Jofra Archer will be very critical to RR’s plans today against the destructive opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner. He is among the wickets in recent matches for RR and with Jonny Bairstow having a weakness against incoming deliveries, you can bet upon Jofra Archer in the grand leagues.
Ben Stokes will be playing his first competitive match after a long break. But with his abilities in both the departments, he is a genuine contender for the grand leagues. He can be a differential pick as well because most of them will go against him due to his first outing.
Who will win SRH vs RR Today Match Prediction?
As per our Today Match Prediction, Sunrisers Hyderabad are primed to win this encounter against Rajasthan Royals. Overseas players of RR need to play according to their potential as their Indian players are struggling big time. The return of Ben Stokes will help them in their cause but SRH still looks a better side on paper compared to RR.
