SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 4 | SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction Today | Hyderabad Pitch Report

Sunrisers Hyderabad meet Rajasthan Royals in what promises to be a thrilling fourth encounter of IPL 2023. SRH finished in the eighth position last year, but they are one of the strongest teams this season. They will be raring to go with a new captain and set of exciting players.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals were the runners-up last season. Several players turned up for them on different occasions in 2022. However, they will have several challenges this time around. The unavailability of Prasidh Krishna will debilitate their bowling unit. Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal will have to do heavylifting again in the bowling department, with R Ashwin to weave his magic as well.

Expect a riveting contest between two quality sides.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Mayank Agarwal has made 366 runs at an average of 30.50 and a strike rate of 158.44 against Rajasthan Royals. He has also made a fifty and a century. Mayank can exploit the powerplay and provide a brisk start to his team.
  • Abhishek Sharma accumulated 426 runs at an average of 30.42 and a strike rate of 133.12 in IPL 2022. He also had a balls-per-boundary ratio of 5.34. His bowling might also fetch a few points.
  • Rahul Tripathi has been very consistent in the past few IPL seasons. He is a quick starter and often contributes to the team. Expect him to have a decent first game.
  • Harry Brook is in the form of his life. He has scored consistently everywhere in the last year or so. He will be raring to display his superior talent in T20 cricket’s biggest carnival.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a seasoned campaigner. He has snared 14 wickets at an economy rate of 7.96 and a strike rate of 23.35 against Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • Jos Buttler is the best T20 batter going around in world cricket. He was the leading run-scorer (863) of the season last year. He amassed four centuries. Another good start is well on the cards.
  • Sanju Samson has scored 670 runs at an excellent average of 44.66 and a strike rate of 133.46 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. He has also made two fifties and a century against SRH. He will look to build on this record.
  • Shimron Hetmyer has flourished ever since he started batting at number 5. He has accommodated 336 runs at a 28.00 average and 152.03 strike rate in the IPL at this position. Hetmyer also has a balls-per-boundary ratio of 4.80.
  • Trent Boult will have a crucial role to play due to Prasidh Krishna’s absence this year. In 2022, Boult took 16 wickets at a strike rate of 23.25 and an economy rate of 7.93 with the ball. The team would want him to perform well again.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal was the leading wicket-taker (27) in the IPL 2022. He had a terrific bowling average (19.51), strike rate (15.12) and economy rate (7.75). He would like to have another similar season.
