Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL Match Prediction
Rajasthan Royals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 40th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Dubai Cricket Ground and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.
As we move to the business end of the tournament, each game from now stands of utmost important. Rajasthan Royals impressive victory in the last game is evident of the fact that they’re not going down without a fight. Rajasthan hasn’t had the best tournament till now but they still can make through to the playoffs if they can win all their remaining four matches. Having said that, they need to rectify their flaws if there are to keep their hopes alive.
Sanju Samson’s form will be a major headache for Steve Smith now. Samson stated the tournament with a bang but has completely lost momentum in the last few games. The move of playing Ben Stokes at the top hasn’t worked either. Jos Buttler’s magnificent knock in the last game will bring some respite for the RR camp but overall, their batting need to put up a collective show to put a strong case. In the bowling department, Jofra Archer has been bowling exceptionally well but hasn’t got enough support from the rest of the bowlers. To win a tournament like the IPL, you need XI performing players and that’s what Rajasthan will be hoping for against Hyderabad.
Just like Rajasthan, Sunrisers too need to win all their games to cement a place in the playoffs. The problem for SRH has been their over dependence on David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Kane Williamson hasn’t fully justified his potential so does Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg. In the bowling department, they heavily rely on Rashid Khan to get the job done. T Natarajan has been good but not good enough.
Overall, both teams are on par with each other but we expect Sunrisers Hyderbad to emerge victorious on the match day.

RR vs SRH Toss Prediction
Toss will be crucial for the teams Dubai has been a difficult wicket to chase. However, with dew being a factor too, teams have a tough decision to make.
The weather as usual will be dry and humid.
Throughout the tournament, Dubai has been a bat first wicket as chasing teams has found it difficult to score runs in the second innings. The last few game though have given glimpses of the pitch getting better in the second inning, probably because of the dew.
