Rajasthan Royals have lost some early season momentum with four defeats from their last five matches. At least they are still in the reckoning for playoffs which isn’t the case for Sunrisers Hyderabad who are perhaps on the cusp of a do-or-die match. The odds are heavily stacked in favour of Rajasthan while my pick is on the Royals scoring the most powerplay runs.

Head to Head


Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad have played each other 17 times in the IPL with nine wins for Rajasthan and eight for Hyderabad. Incidentally, the Royals have won five of the last seven such matches.

When the teams met earlier in the season, the Royals demolished the Sunrisers by 72 runs. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson smashed quick-fire 50s while Yuzvendra Chahal picked up a four-wicket haul.

Rajasthan Royals Form


The Royals are coming off a nine-wicket thrashing at the hands of league leaders Gujarat Titans on Friday. That made it four defeats out of the last five as Rajasthan slipped to fourth spot with ten points from ten matches.

The young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is making waves with his runs (442) while Jos Buttler’s form remains a concern. Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal have taken 13 wickets each to lead the line.

Batting inconsistencies have creeped up in the side as the Royals struggle to get runs out of Buttler, Samson and the middle-order.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


Adam Zampa and Jason Holder may swap places depending on the pitch, while Devdutt Padikkal’s batting position my come into question.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad are 9th in the table with only six points from nine matches. They are coming off an agonising five-run defeat to the Kolkata Knight Riders making it four losses from their last five matches.

The visitors are yet to have a batter aggregate more than 200 with Rahul Tripathi (190) the closest. With the ball, Mayank Markande’s 11 wickets have papered over the cracks.

The lack of batting leadership is hurting Hyderabad big time as they struggle to find the right composition.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


The struggling Harry Brook could be rested with the hard-hitting Glenn Phillips waiting in the wings.

Verdict

Time is running out for Sunrisers Hyderabad who need to pick up wins or lose hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. Rajasthan Royals are also desperate for a win as their early season momentum is punctured by defeats lately. This match could be heavily tilted towards Rajasthan’s win although the value bet is in backing the hosts in the first six overs. I am putting my money on Rajasthan Royals scoring the highest first six overs score.
