Sunrisers Hyderabad needs to win three of the four remaining matches to stay alive in the tournament. Rajasthan Royals defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous match to earn two valuable points. Rajasthan Royals would now host Sunrisers Hyderabad in Jaipur on 27 April. Read on the complete IPL cricket tips for the match here.
With the world cup nearing, many international players have started leaving from the tournament. Sunrisers have lost Jonny Bairstow and it would be a big blow to the team. Bairstow has scored a hefty amount of runs and was able to give good starts to the team. Rajasthan has lost the services of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. It would be an interesting clash to watch with some new players in the settled teams.
IPL Cricket Tips Performance Check
The major blow to Rajasthan Royals would be of Jofra Archer who has returned back to England for national duty. In the previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan was able to pull off a win. The performance of the team was a mixed one. Addition of Varun Aaron in the team had an immediate impact.
Ben Stokes has also left for England for a national role. His role in the team was questionable. He did not make any impact with bat or ball. Stokes didn’t even ball in last few matches. Despite the poor performance, Ashton Turner would continue with his place in the team.
We can expect some re-shuffling in the team with some holes to fill. Dhawal Kulkarni might be back in the side which might cost them the batting power.
Rahane has been attacking in the last few matched. If Rahane, Samson, and Smith continue to score runs, then the middle order can be a bit relaxed and their bowling can also get some support. Playing against a strong team of Sunrisers Hyderabad would be a tough thing.
Sunrisers would be facing the major loss in the form of Jonny Bairstow who has also left for England for national duty. He was the second highest run scorer in IPL 2019. He had some successful partnerships with Warner to win crucial matches for the team.
Manish Pandey played a nice inning in the previous match. Batting has been a concern area for the franchise with most of the runs coming from Warner and Bairstow. Return of Kane Williamson is expected in the team.
Middle order comprises of Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda, and Rashid Khan. They all can be handy with the bat but have not proved it yet except for Vijay Shankar.
Though Sunrisers had the best bowling attack in the previous edition, this season they don’t have that spark. Batsmen fin it easy to read Rashid Khan and he has not been able to pick the wickets. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma have been quite expensive. Shakib and Khalil Ahmed would have a major role to play.
