Today’s IPL 2021 fixture will be between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals. This match will take place in Dubai International Cricket Stadium at 7:30 pm IST. With SRH on the verge of getting knocked out, they could spoil RR’s chances of making it to the playoffs. Hence by no means is this contest a dead rubber.
This is undoubtedly Sunrisers Hyderabad’s worst IPL season as they have only managed to win one game out of the nine games played. With none of their overseas batsmen firing, it is needless to say that they will make several changes to their lineup.
Rajasthan Royals have had a mixed start to their road to playoffs in phase two. Currently, sitting at sixth spot, a comprehensive victory today could help the Royals jump up to the fourth spot of the table. Moreover, Chris Morris and Evin Lewis being available for today’s game will be a big boost for RR against SRH.
Prediction for the IPL 2021 Match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals
With their key overseas players returning to the lineup, Rajasthan Royals is expected to win this clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Moreover, Samson’s return to form will help the side greatly in today’s fixture against the under firing SRH.
Fantasy XI Team
Sanju Samson – Captain – 10 Cr
Sanju Samson was the highest scorer for Rajasthan Royals in their last fixture against Delhi Capitals. His knock of 70 will help his confidence and one can expect the Royals captain to score big today.
Yashasvi Jaiswal 8.5 Cr
The Rajasthan Opener played a good knock in Dubai against Punjab and he can display a similar type of performance against Srh today. Moreover, UAE’s pitches help batsman score runs on a quick rate in the first half of the batting innings.
Chris Morris 9.5 Cr
Chris Morris returning to the lineup will help RR find a perfect balance in the lineup. Further, the all rounder has been a match winner for them this season and will be crucial in today’s fixture.
Rashid Khan 9.5 Cr
Rashid Khan has bowled efficiently despite not being able to take many wickets in phase two. However, his batting ability and a slow Dubai pitch could help add valuable points for any user.
Kartik Tyagi 9 Cr
Tyagi’s death bowling could help RR put pressure on the misfiring batting order of SRH and can end up getting several wickets.
Mustafizur Rehman 8.5 Cr
The Bangladeshi fast bowler has picked up wickets in both games and as the Dubai pitch tends to gets slower in the second half, he can pick up many wickets with his variations.
Wriddhiman Saha 8.5 Cr
Saha has given points for users in both games as the keeper has scored runs for them while opening. His contribution of 25-30 runs makes him a good choice in the fantasy XI.
Kane Williamson 9.5 Cr
Despite not scoring big in phase two of IPL 2021, Williamson is the backbone of the side. Therefore the captain is expected to give SRH a good platform in today’s game.
Evin Lewis 9 Cr
Evin Lewis will come back in the squad today against SRH. The destructive Royals opener can play a big innings as he displayed a glimpse of his capabilities in the first game against PBKS.
Jason Holder 9 Cr
Jason Holder had almost helped SRH to win their second game of this season against Punjab on Saturday. His quickfire knock of 47 from 29 is an indication of his good form. In addition to that, the West Indian all rounder was the best bowler for his side against PBKS as he picked up three crucial wickets. Hence I have selected Holder as the vice captain for today’s game.
Rahul Tewatia 9 Cr
Rahul Tewatia’s all-round capabilities can come in handy today as he has a good record in Dubai. Due to this factor, I have picked him in the 11.
