The final leg of the IPL is here and we are into the last match in the city of Jaipur. This means this is the last home match for Rajasthan. They have been very tepid this season so can they turn around in their last match at the fortress? Let’s check the details of the match and predict the match:
|Match||Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals – IPL 2019 Match 45|
|Venue||Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur|
|Series||Indian Premier League|
|Date||April 27, 2019|
|Time||08:00 pm IST|
Team Sun Risers Hyderabad (Probable 11)
David Warner, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Wriddhiman Shah, Rashid Khan, Shakib Hassan, Yusuf Pathan, Vijay Shankar, Bhubaneswar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma/ Khaleel Ahmed
Team Rajasthan Royals (Probable 11)
Steve Smith, Ajiyanke Rahane, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, Riyan Parag, Tripathi, Aston Turner, Shreyas Gopal, Unadkat/ Kulkarni
SMS Stadium has been a low scoring ground in the first 5 matches but the last match was high scoring, so we can see a medium to high-scoring pitch. Therefore, cricket fans can expect a good total if both teams bat well.
Rajasthan Royals has not been in a good form in this season. However, the visitors for the match are proving their class in almost every game. This shows that Sunrisers Hyderabad has a better chance of winning this game because they do not seem to be much affected by the stadium in which they are playing. But they would be concerned about their opening as most of their matches were worn thanks to Bairstow and Warner giving them a solid opening. This will be missing.
On the other hand, Rajasthan will be missing services of Butler too. Thus, the match is again even for both teams as they are missing their one key opening batsman.
On the paper, Rajasthan looks stronger as they have a more balanced team and have hard-hitting allrounders. The problem for SRH is that after Warner, not much can be said about their middle order and lower order as they have not got that many chances.
Overall, its slightly advantage Rajasthan Royals who will be playing at home.
