Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Betting Tips 02/05/2021

Teams Status

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Half a dozen matches into the season, Sunrisers Hyderabad are dead last on the points table and have won just a single match. The only team they have defeated all season are Punjab Kings – hardly an achievement but then there have been some positives for them over the last few games.

In their last match, SRH posted a target of 172, hoping that the score was decent enough to give league leaders Chennai Super Kings a run for their money but still ended up losing the match comfortably as their bowlers allowed a century stand to the CSK pairing of Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Truth be told, their score was a still a bit too low to challenge the likes of a true heavyweight such as CSK. And for the low scoring, they had to blame their captain David Warner, who scored a slow 55-ball 57. Had it not been for Kane Williamson’s cameo of a 10-ball 26, the score could have been even lower.

In the match before, Hyderabad had lost via a Super Over, too, so it’s not like they are not showing any signs of life.

Rajasthan Royals

First-ever IPL winners, Rajasthan Royals, have fared little better than Hyderabad so far this IPL. They have just one more win than Hyderabad, and with four points to their name, sit a place above.

In their last game, they posted the exactly same total that Hyderabad had posted in their own previous match. Eerily, Rajasthan lost the game by same number of wickets and balls to spare.

It is suffice to say then that Rajasthan and Hyderabad are almost equally strong or equally weak, depending whether you’re a glass half full or half empty person.

Rajasthan’s against Mumbai was a balanced batting effort, with each of their front four batsmen contributing runs. They, too, lost the match with the ball, with their bowlers managing to pick just three wickets in the innings.

Tipster’s Angel

Tip: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win at 1.9

As explained above, Sunrisers Hyderabad have shown more life than Rajasthan Royals in their last three games, even though two of them have been defeats. Their top order’s (David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson) combined capabilities are not secret either and have been talked about a lot. The stage is set for the Sunrisers to double the tally and vacate the bottom of the points table.

Tip: Top Batsman for Sunrisers Hyderabad – David Warner @ 3.0

The man held responsible for Hyderabad’s defeat in their last match was none other than their captain David Warner, who scored at around a run-a-ball pace for his 50-something. The Aussie should now be fired up to follow up that uncharacteristically garbage knocks with a match-winning innings.


Of the 13 matches played between these two sides, Hyderabad have won seven and Rajasthan six. It’s clear that there is little to choose between these side but we still choose Hyderabad.
