SRH vs RR Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Possible XIs, Pitch Report and Weather – IPL 2024 Qualifier 2



Last Updated on 1 month by Charbel Coorey

After two games in the IPL 2024 playoffs, attention moves to Qualifier 2 between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Chepauk. RR would be feeling confident after beating in-form RCB in the Eliminator, while SRH need to find the right solutions for the Chepauk conditions.

A fascinating battle awaits. SRH have the hard-hitters, but RR have the bowling smarts as was on display in the Eliminator. R Ashwin was outstanding, and he returns to his home ground where he will aim to target SRH’s left-handers. Also, the SRH bowlers will be out for some redemption after the Iyer’s got a hold of them in Qualifier 1.

In this article, we’ll look at the possible playing XIIs, top Dream11 picks and Chepauk pitch conditions.

Sanju Samson521 runs, 7 dismissals816
Travis Head533 runs794
Abhishek Sharma470 runs773
Heinrich Klaasen413 runs, 9 dismissals715

Top batter picks:

  • Sanju Samson: The RR captain may have missed out in recent games, but he enjoys batting against SRH: 18 inns, 688 runs, avg. 45.87, SR 139.55.
  • Travis Head: SRH’s opener is coming off two straight ducks, but there is no better time than now to fire. He scored 58 off 44 balls against RR earlier this season and is striking at 199.62 in the campaign.
  • Head has a strong T20 record against Trent Boult: 30 balls, 52 runs, no dismissals.
  • Heinrich Klaasen: Since the start of 2023, Klaasen has smashed 68 runs against RR at a strike rate of 219.35.
  • Klaasen has taken Yuzvendra Chahal apart in T20s: 46 balls, 108 runs, three dismissals.
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal: We’re waiting for the big knock from Jaiswal. He has a good record against Bhuvneshwar (33 balls, 54 runs) and Pat Cummins (12 balls, 25 runs) without being dismissed against either.

Top all-rounder picks

  • Riyan Parag: RR’s number four has had a season to remember. He has ammassed the most fantasy points out of any RR or SRH player this season. Also, Parag scored 77 off just 49 balls against SRH earlier in the campaign.
  • R Ashwin: The offspinner can be a smart Dream11 pick. He has the most T20 wickets of any bowler at Chepauk (53). Also, he will look to test the SRH openers if he gets the chance to bowl to them.
  • Ashwin has also picked up an impressive seven wickets in the last four games.

Top bowler picks:

  • Trent Boult: One key to RR’s hopes. He has an excellent record against Abhishek Sharma, conceding just 13 runs off 21 balls, with the one dismissal.
  • Pat Cummins: The skipper has taken at least one wicket in eight of his last 10 games. This includes 2/34 against RR.
  • T Natarajan: The left-arm seamer is SRH’s leading wicket-taker this season with 18.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal: The legspinner has 11 wickets in as many games at Chepauk. Also, since 2022, Chahal has picked up 11 wickets in just four matches against SRH.

Other Players to consider for your Fantasy Cricket Teams…

  • Avesh Khan: The pacer has picked up five wickets in his past two games. Against SRH earlier this season, Avesh dismissed both openers. In fact, Avesh has picked up at least a wicket in seven of his last nine matches.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar: SRH’s seamer was player of the match when they won a thriller by one run against RCB. He took 3/41, including the memorable dismissal of Samson. In fact, he has dismissed Samson four times in 92 balls in the IPL, giving away just 118.
  • Abhishek Sharma: While he strikes at just 118.19 in five innings vs Royals, he has what it takes to fire here. He strikes at 155.6 vs Ashwin (28 off 18, one dismissal).
  • Nitish Kumar Reddy: His 285 runs come at a strike rate of 148.43 this season. He can also chip in with the ball despite going wicketless in recent times.

MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai Pitch Report and Weather

Chasing teams have won five of the seven games at Chepauk in IPL 2024. Dew plays a big factor in the hot and humid conditions of Chennai.

200 has been breached in three games, but it could be a slower surface here.
