Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils Match Prediction

Rajasthan Royals vs Delhi Daredevils Match Prediction

Sunrisers' innings didn't get off to a great start either though, with opener Wriddhiman Saha dismissed for just five runs before Williamson came out.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have shown no ill-effects from the loss of banned skipper David Warner as they eased to a nine-wicket IPL win over Rajasthan Royals. Without David Warner, their highest run-getter in each of the previous three seasons, it was a courageous call from new Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson to field first and his bowlers justified that call in style.

Shikhar Dhawan's blazing form has continued, which is the biggest shot in the arm for the "Orange Army" apart from a bowling attack that looks potent on any surface.

In reply, Sunrisers completely took the surface out of the equation as Dhawan and Williamson's 121-run second-wicket stand snuffed out any inkling of hope Royals may have had of salvaging the match. He had the ideal preparation for the IPL with a 22 ball century in a local T20 game in Kolkata prior to the tournament and will look to do much of the same in this tournament as well. Mumbai boy Prithvi Shaw, who also captained the victorious India team in the ICC Under-19 World Cup 2018 in New Zealand, had been making news even before he set sail for New Zealand to lead the Indian side in the biennial event. Sunrisers conceded only 12 boundaries and no sixes against Rajasthan in the first game. How the experienced SRH middle-order tackles Mayank Markande will also be worth the watch. However, it must be remembered that David Warner contributed 1500 runs in both the tournaments and was also a very inspirational captain who transformed an ordinary team into an nearly invincible squad of today.

His departure put extra pressure on the relatively inexperienced middle-order and none of the batsmen could get going after that.

The team also has Sussex all-rounder Jofra Archer (Rs 7.2 crores) and Karnataka off-spinner K Gowtham (6.2 crores).

Bhuvneshwar Kumar was retained by the franchise and the players resigned are- Deepak Hooda, Shikar Dhawan and Rashid Khan.

SRH win. They have a better bowling attack, and a better batting lineup than the Royals. Injured Kedar Jadhav provided those ten runs at the end which sent Chennai Super Kings towards victory in their first match after the two-year ban. Ben Stokes was visibly under pressure and in frustration, he tried to clear the fence off Billy Stanlake's bowling but was caught by Kane Williamson. Now, in the 4th match of the ongoing 11th episode of the tournament, they have faced against each other. His returns of two for 17 were one of the key reasons behind the impressive performance of Hyderabad against Rajasthan.
