Rajasthan vs Hyderabad : Fantasy Tips, Probable XI, Match Prediction

The 40th match of the ongoing 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to be played between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Dubai on Thursday.

Head to Head Stats

Total Matches Played : 12

Match Prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming from 3 back to back defeats in their recent matches including a super over defeat against KKR. Rajasthan on the other hand had a much needed win over Chennai after two back to back losses.

Both Hyderabad and Rajasthan have done some changes in the batting order. Jos Buttler batting in middle order has strengthed the batting of Rajasthan for sure. David Warner batted at 4 for SRH in the last match against KKR with the same intention of strengthening the middle order.

Looking at recent performances, I am expecting a close contest when these two sides take field against each other on Thursday. I personally back Rajasthan to do well in this match.

Player to Watch Out : Kane Williamson

Both teams will expect their big guns to fire in this match. Guys like Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson needs to be amongst the runs if RR is to go long way in this tournament. As far as Hyderabad side is concerned, a good solid opening stand from Bairstow-Williamson duo is expected which the middle and lower order can capitalize on. With Warner dropping himself to middle order, the likes of Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg will have that freedom to go after the bowling with the senior Warner by their side.
