The first stage of the 2021 Indian Premier League has not been a breeze for either the Rajasthan Royals or the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Although the Rajasthan Royals find themselves in the middle of the table, contending for that elusive fourth spot.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, definitely need a miracle to turn their dreadful initial run around. The two teams recently locked horns when the Rajasthan Royals completely dominated the latter team, with stellar performances coming from Jos Buttler and Mustafizur Rehman.
Key Tips for Cricket Bets Online
Players to Look Out For
Going into their encounter on the 27th of September, a tip for fans whilst they consider placing cricket bets online would be definitely to pay attention to the dominant batting lineup that the Rajasthan Royals possess – Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson and David Miller.
This is because the Rajasthan Royals have averaged a score of 150+ with two big innings coming against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings (of 220 and 217 runs, respectively). On the other hand, the team also has highly aggressive all-rounders in Kedar Jadhav and Vijar Shankar, who are both capable of scoring big runs and can really provide an individual with a betting advantage if chosen in their team.
Although most of the cricket bets online would favor the batsman, given that the two teams can make high scores in their innings, one should not overlook the bowling capabilities of both sides.
Given that the cricket pitches of UAE generally offer moisture and dew to the fast pacers while also providing an additional spin, a tip for cricket bets being placed online would be to include a couple of the key bowlers from either side. For example, Rashid Khan, Chetan Sakariya and Mustafizur Rahman.
Rashid Khan is one leading bowler of the tournament, and he should find a spot on your fantasy dream team. He has been the sole bowler for SRH, who has consistently provide breakthroughs in the form of wickets. Sakariya, on the other hand, has put up a good performance in this IPL edition.
Expected Lineup for RR and SRH
As the two teams head to play, on paper, the Rajasthan Royals would be the favourites, as they enter into the tournament having beaten Sunrisers Hyderabad convincingly in their previous encounter.
The Rajasthan Royals would also be keen on winning the match as they try to contend for the top 4 spots to make it into the semi-final. Whereas, there is not a lot left for Hyderabad to fight for, as they find themselves on the bottom half of the table, with a slight chance of even making it to the knockout stages.
