- Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad:
It is time for the match NO 8 as IPL 2019 comes to Hyderabad today; Rajasthan Royals takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad in what is expected to be a tricky clash. Let us have a look at the prediction for this game:
Opening is purely set with aggressive Butler and calm and orthodox Rahane opening the batting for them, middle have Samson, Ben stokes, Tripathi and Steve smith who can make merry in the batting.
Well, their weakness is a lack of mighty bowling attack which looks struggling to stop the run flow; they really need their bowlers to step up with good balls like Yorkers and timely short balls. They will have to read the batsman’s mind better.
One more worry will be that their middle order collapsed big time in their first game after the controversial dismissal of Jos butler when Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin mankaded him. Their middle order will have to come good for giving a complete performance.
Bairstow and Warner is one of the most dangerous opening pair in IPL 2019. They also has a good middle order set up and expected to make more runs in this game. Talking about their bowling attack, you cannot find a better bowling attack than SRH especially after their performance with the ball in 2018 edition.
In case if Kane Williamson coming back as captain which is eventually a blessing, the problem is which overseas player will make way for him? Will it hurt any Rhythm? Will the lack of finishers towards lower order cost them this game?
- Our prediction- despite few weaknesses here and there, SRH will start favourites in this game.
