Here is the predicted playing XI:


Sanju Samson (C): After a brilliant start this edition, Sanju’s issues with consistency still persist. Failed to trouble the scoresheet in previous three matches, he will look to score some big runs against SRH.

Jos Buttler (WK): He is the key to the Rajasthan Royals batting line-up has been getting starts but has failed to convert them into big scores.

Yashasvi Jaiswal: Still looking for the one big score which will give the confidence boost he requires. Got a good start against KKR but failed to turn it into a big one.

David Miller: With his experience and power, his performances can turn RR’s season around. However, apart from one good knock, he has struggled in 2021.

Riyan Parag: He has failed to turn his good starts into big scores. Riyan has the ability and skill to play some wonderful strokes. His contribution at the back end of innings will be quite crucial for RR.

Rahul Tewatia: Tewatia made headlines when he smashed five sixes in an over against Punjab Kings in IPL2020 to help RR chase down a record target of 224 runs. However, he has not been able to score big since then and will be looking to change that against SRH.

Chris Morris: The big-money signing, Morris has won two games for Rajasthan Royals. He has taken 11 wickets until now. RR will be hoping for him to build on these performances.

Shivam Dube: After an excellent innings against RCB scoring 46 off 32 balls, Dube showed glimpses of his talent against KKR but struggled against Mumbai Indians.

Shreyas Gopal: Gopal has troubled the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the past, with the ball spinning away from them. RR will be hoping for their star spinner to bag some wickets against SRH.

Mustafizur Rahman: The Fizz has been a good signing for RR, his ability to bowl in the death is better to none in the RR camp. RR will be wanting him to pick up wickets in the power play overs.

Chetan Sakariya: This young boy continues to impress. He looks like the find of this IPL season. It will be interesting to see him go up against the big batsmen of SRH.


David Warner:Warner holds a brilliant record with the bat in IPL. Although he has struggled to perform in this editon, the relieving of captaincy could kickstart something good for him.

Jonny Bairstow:After a disappointing innings in the previous match, Bairstow must be looking to get a big innings. The SRH batting line up very much depend on Bairstow to score some big runs.

Manish Pandey:After being dropped in the previous two games, Pandey scored a brilliant half century in a losing cause. He should be looking to improve his strike rate or else SRH will find it very difficult to chase down or setup targets for the opposition.

Kane Williamson: Made a positive impact after given an opportunity to play. He is an added strength to the batting lineup. With Williamson the new skipper, there is hope for Sunrisers Hyderabad

Kedhar Jadhav: His brief cameo against CSK might well give him another chance against RR.

Vijay Shankar: He is an asset to the team, who can perform with the bat and bowl as well. But he has failed to make any sort of an impact this season.

Rashid Khan: Hehas been the standout bowler for the SRH franchise in the tournament. With T Natarajan missing, the pressure is on Rashid to pick up more wickets this season.

Khaleel Ahmed: The left-armer hasn’t been at his best this season, SRH will be hoping for Khaleel to find his rhythm back.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar:Bhuvi missed out the previous two matches due to a niggle, SRH will be hoping their premier bowler will be back in action against RR.

Sandeep Sharma: Sandeep and Bhuvi have a very good partnership with the new ball. The Punjab pacer needs to find his length and line quickly for SRH to achieve some success.

Siddarth Kaul: After a wicket less game against CSK, Kaul needs to finds his form and start picking up wickets with the new ball
