Rajasthan Royals v Sunrisers Hyderabad betting predictions

As part of our free cricket betting tips, you will find the best RR v SRH betting tips here.

Both teams are facing problems of their own – Hyderabad have picked up just one win in their six games so far while Rajasthan are at two in the same number of games.

Consequently, both teams are in the bottom half of the table with Sanju Samon’s men leading SRH by just two points.

All things considered, we are going with Rajasthan on this one.

Rajasthan Team News

From a performance point of view, the last few matches have been fairly good for Rajasthan Royals, especially when we look at batting.

In the game against RCB, they put up a big total but were let down by their bowling. They made up for it against Kolkata Knight Riders with a 6-wicket win. Most recently, they faced Mumbai Indians and once again, despite putting a good target to chase for MI, they couldn’t quite defend it.

We can’t really fault them for it – RR have lost the bulk of their foreign talent to injuries and Covid fatigue.

Chris Morris has stepped up and taken bowling responsibilities but he will need assistance from Rahman, Unadkat, and others.

In batting, Samson continues to thrive with sporadic assistance from other players every now and then. That said, Rajasthan will be pleased with the fact that Buttler, Dube, and Tewatie have got a few good innings under their belt already.

This will matter a lot, seeing that SRH’s batting order isn’t as great as you would expect them to be.

Likely XI: Buttler, Jaiswal, Samson, Dube, Miller, Parag, Tewatia, Morris, Gopal, Unadkat, Rahman

Hyderabad Team News

This big news at the moment is the replacement of SRH’s captain – David Warner has been replaced by Kane Williamson for the rest of the season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are misfiring badly in the league this season, particularly in the batting department. Their middle-order lacks foundation while Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Manish Pandey lack consistency.

Similarly, in bowling, Rashid Khan has been decent but he could do a lot with some assistance from his colleagues. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has been out of action for a while and the likes of Sandeep Sharma and Siddhart Kaul are still finding their place in the league.

SRH are coming in this game after two consecutive defeats – one against CSK and the other against Delhi Capitals in the Super Over.

Sitting at the bottom of the table, the hope now will be from Williamson to lead the team to wins. There is certainly plenty of talent in the team, including Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohammad Nabi, and Jason Holder.

The fact that Warner has been so out of touch may just mean a new face and possibly, new beginnings.

Likely XI: Bairstow, Holder, Williamson, Pandey,  Jadhav,  Shankar, Sharma, Khan, Kumar, Kaul, Ahmed

Venue & conditions

Expect a crisp day in Delhi where the conditions are set to favour the batsmen, going by the matches played on this track so far. This being an afternoon fixture, dew will have no role to play.

Both teams have shown some batting promise in their past few matches and would want to put a target upwards of 160-170 if batting first.

RR v SRH Head-to-Head

This fixture has always been one of the close ones with both the teams being neck and neck.

Hyderabad hold a small lead at the moment although, both teams have managed to beat each other once every year in the last two seasons of the IPL.

Hyderabad also lead the way in toss although, they do so by a slim margin. Last season, SRH won the toss in both of their fixtures against Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan v Hyderabad Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back RR to win @ 1.95 with 10CRIC

Rajasthan Royals may have lost to Mumbai recently but that was a game where their batting was definitely on point. All four of their opening batsmen contributed well to the score – plus, it was their third such match where they batted superbly.

By contrast, Sunrisers Hyderabad haven’t been this consistent with the bat. It was only in their first game in Delhi against Chennai Super Kings that they found some momentum in batting, thanks to Manish Pandey and Delhi’s batting pitch.

Then, there is also the drastic change in SRH’s captaincy with Williamson now expect to usher his side out of the darkness. There will be a slight pressure on him to perform and a possible shift in tactics and general approach that may take some time to develop.

Meanwhile, RR are looking quite fine in comparison. Their real concern will be bowling and they have plenty of local talent to try and test.

Rajasthan Royals Total Four: Over 13.5

Recommended Bet: RR to hit over 13.5 fours in the match @ 1.75 with Betway

The pitch in Delhi has worked well for batsmen so far. In the four innings batted here so far, three of them have seen over 13.5 fours.

Secondly, there is also the fact that RR’s batsmen are in a decent form at the moment and do have the ability to find boundaries when they need to. This should be doable, especially against a struggling SRH bowling line-up.

Today’s RR v SRH Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Sanju Samson RR Top Batsman @ 3.60 with 10CRIC

Samson has been the top run-getter for Rajasthan Royals this season with 229 runs in 6 matches.

In his last two matches, he has scored 42 runs each while in the opening game, he scored a fantastic century. The Indian is having himself a brilliant season where he is thriving and growing as a player.

He is also the highest run-scorer in the RR-v-SRH fixtures through the years in the IPL, which makes us all the more confident to go on this bet.

  • Samson has scored 382 runs against Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League
  • Meanwhile, Chris Morris has the best strike in this fixture
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is the existing leading wicket taker with 9 wickets
