SRH vs RR Team Previews
SRH is probably the only IPL team that has all of its players available for selection from the start of the competition. ‘ Due to his auction strategy not being followed, SRH’s management received a lot of heat after the auction for their seemingly bizarre actions. Simon Katich also left the management team.
They’ve put together a good group nonetheless, in our opinion!
In terms of batting order, SRH should have Aiden Markram, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson, and Nicholas Pooran as its top four. This is a potent batting lineup with a lot of experience in the shortest form of the game. Even though he is one of the league’s lesser-known players, Rahul Tripathi has proven time and time again to be an essential cog in the IPL’s winning team machine.
Washington Sundar, Abdul Samad, and Romario Shepherd make up the middle order.
As far as middle-order batsmen go, Samad and Sundar aren’t up there with the best of them, but Romario Shepherd is our favourite pick in this auction.
Adding Shepherd gives the team a legitimate six-hitter and a solid death-bowler.
Fast-bowling options for SRH include Umran Malik, Kartik Tyagi, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Shreyas Gopal is likely to start the first match because of a lack of spin bowling options.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing 11
Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (c), Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
The Rajasthan Royals’ entire roster is available for this match. This is a strategy that has worked well for the Delhi Capitals in the past, and the Royals have decided to follow suit.
Devdutt Padikkal and Yashasvi Jaiswal open for them. Two of the best batsmen in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history are on this list. The question for bettors is whether the teams would have worked them out or the players would have progressed during the off-season.
In the absence of Shimron Hetmyer, Jos Buttler, and Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals have a much better batting lineup. But Pune’s conditions could be more spin-friendly, which would put more of a strain on the team’s big hitters.
This gives them a significant advantage over SRH in this matchup. When the Royals have Yuzvendra Chahal and R Ashwin in their starting eleven, they have two excellent options for spin bowling.
Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult, and Prasidh Krishna should make up the pace bowling line-up. As a whole, this is a very well-rounded group that should be able to handle any situation.
Rajasthan Royals Playing 11
Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (capt), Nicholas Pooran, Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi (vice-capt), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Washington Sundar, Riyan Parag, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult.
SRH vs RR Toss Prediction
In Pune, the team that wins the coin toss has the option of batting first. It’s not expected that there will be much dew, so spin could play a bigger role in the match. However, the toss is expected to be less significant at this location (at least for the first few matches).

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
On match day, there is no rain forecast, and dew isn’t as much of a problem at this location. There is more red soil used, which generally helps spinners, and the pitch is slower. Of course, the pitch should have been well-rolled and provide a good batting surface for the first few games. More than 170 is a typical batting average at this location. Those two should go head to head.
