VIVO IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals preview

Match details:

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajsthan Royals (Rajiv Gandhi Stadium)

April 9, 2018 – 8pm

Match preview:


Sunrisers Hyderbad will face Rajasthan Royal in VIVO IPL 2018. Both the franchisees will be without their earlier proposed captains in David Warner & Steve Smith. The aussie players were found guilty in ball tampering scandal. David Warner’s unavailability has caused a massive dent in SRH’s moral.


Ajinkya Rahane will be heading RR wheras Kane Williamson was made the captain of SRH. Both teams have strengthened pretty well in the auctions.

RR paid massive amount to buy Ben Stokes & Jaydev Unadkat whereas SRH has mostly retained. English opener Alex Hales will be opening the batting with Shikhar Dhawan.

Head-to-Head record:

Both teams have faced each other 7 times in which SRH has the upper hand with 4 wins.


Prediction: 

We are going with a Rajasthan Royals win in this one.
