The recent change in captaincy has done wonders for the Rajasthan Royals, who were written off after winning only 2 games of their first 8 IPL matches. They should have got 3 wins on the trot, but a Rishabh Pant mayhem has reduced it to 2 wins from 3 games under Steve Smith. The SunRisers Hyderabad are enduring a mixed season so far and have been severely missing the services of Kane Williamson, the captain. They have lost all the last 3 matches, where Kane Williamson didn’t get to play. According to our Dream11 expert predictions, today’s IPL match is going to be a very close contest.
Rajasthan will be missing the services of Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes due to their national duties. One of Ashton Turner, Liam Livingstone or Ish Sodhi will miss out the cut from the playing XI. SunRisers Hyderabad will have to deal a heavy blow since the tournament’s second highest run getter Jonny Bairstow will also be no longer available for them. Kane Williamson is likely to join the team, if he’s back from home. If not, Martin Guptill will get a chance in today’s IPL match.
It will be the last home game for Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, where they have won only 2 out of 6 games. The last game here turned out to be a high scoring affair but usually the scoring range is from 150 to 170. Our Dream11 expert predictions feel that a big outfield means spinners have a chance to get more wickets in deep regions.
David Warner has been the main pillar for the SunRisers Hyderabad for years now. Knowing that he will have to leave the team early for national commitments, he will go out all guns blazing and will hope to win his remaining matches to give the team a good chance of qualifying for the knockouts. He’s an option for all of your Dream11 fantasy cricket teams, no doubt. The orange cap holder has been dismissed by Ish Sodhi twice in 8 deliveries recently in T20s and he will be hoping to gain the upperhand in today’s IPL match.
Ajinkya Rahane has definitely benefited after being taken off from the captaincy of RR. He has been batting with no pressure and his strike rate in the last 3 matches are unusually higher than his career strike rate. However, he has struggled a bit against some of the bowlers from SRH recently. His SR against S Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma are 100, 50 and 97.92 respectively and has been dismissed by them also. According to our Dream11 expert predictions, he will be a risky pick come for this encounter
Shreyas Gopal is the 7th leading wicket taker (13 wickets in 11 matches) and is the only uncapped national player in top 10 wicket takers in IPL 2019 so far. 9 of the 13 wickets have been at home for this leggie. He is enjoying a memorable IPL season and can add more wickets to his tally, now that he will be their most reliable/senior bowler since Jofra Archer is not available. He’s a must-have Dream11 fantasy cricket player in your team.
K Khaleel Ahmed
Khaleel Ahmed has only played 4 games so far in IPL 2019 but has already got a couple of 3 wicket hauls. He is a prolific wicket taker and has improved leaps and bounds after his stint with the Indian National team. Our Dream11 experts say that his variations in death overs are sure to get him a lot of wickets especially at this venue where the outfields are very large.
