Indian Premier League 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs. Rajasthan Royals, Match No. 40

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Rajasthan Royals leaped ahead of the last three teams in the points table with a comfortable win over CSK. They will look to win this game and break into the top-4 position in the table. Sunrisers Hyderabad had been sketchy this season with a couple of players injured and a lack of experience in the bowling department. They need to win this match to keep their qualification hope alive. We expect Rajasthan Royals to win this match.

Score Prediction: Dubai pitch has been slightly up and down, and seamers enjoyed bowling here with the new ball. Almost 6 wickets fell in the power play across two innings. We can expect the average score to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss Prediction: Early moisture in the pitch helped the spinners in the first innings and both captains will look to take advantage of it by bowling first in this match.

Predicted Playing XI

RAJASTHAN ROYALS: Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson (wk), Steven Smith (c), Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Ankit Rajpoot/Mahipal Lormor, Kartik Tyagi

SUNRISERS HYDERABAD: David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Mohammed Nabi, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma


  • RR has 8 points from 10 matches while SRH have 6 points from 9 matches so far.
  • RR has won just 2 of their last 8 matches & SRH has won just one of their last 5 matches. 
  • SRH lost to RR by 5 wickets in their previous encounter this season.

Players to Bet on:


  1. Jos Buttler – Buttler provided great stability to their innings in a tricky chase scoring 70 runs off 48 balls. He dominated the partnership with Smith and guided his team home in the chase.
  2. Ben Stokes – Stokes is quality all-rounder who can contribute with bat and ball equally. he is yet to make a game changing performance and we expect it in this innings.  
  3. Jofra Archer – Archer has been phenomenal with the terrorizing the batsmen with his pace and bounce. He has given runs at less than 7 RPO bowling in the power play and death overs. 


  1. David Warner – David Warner has four 40+ scores in the last 5 innings and is looking to peak at the right moment with the bat. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat in this match too. 
  2. Manish Pandey – Pandey has been inconsistent with the bat this season with good knocks followed by some average ones. he needs to be more consistent in the middle order and help his team to close the innings on a high.
  3. Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan is their bowling spearhead and he has taken 11 wickets at an economy rate of 5.5 RPO.
