The Titans chased down the target with 37 balls to spare after Wriddhiman Saha, Shubman Gill and Hardik scored 41*, 36 and 39* respectively. The RR vs SRH prediction will depend a lot on how the Royals manage to recover after the hefty defeat.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers, led by Aiden Markram, are in all sorts of trouble. They are placed ninth in the table with six points and a net run rate of -0.540. They will go into the match after losing to the Nitish Rana-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by five runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

After opting to field first, SRH restricted the Knights to 171 for the loss of nine wickets. T Natarajan and Marco Jansen, who replaced Akeal Hosein, picked up two wickets apiece. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kartik Tyagi, skipper Markram and Mayank Markande accounted for one scalp apiece.

The Sunrisers were in the chase for quite some time. Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen scored 41 and 36 respectively to put the Sunrisers in the driver’s seat. But with nine runs needed off the last over, the batters in the middle failed to tackle Varun Chakravarthy.

The RR vs SRH prediction will depend heavily on how the SRH batters perform as their bowlers have been doing a reasonable job.

SRH possible 11: Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Harry Brook, Abdul Samad, Marco Jansen, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kartik Tyagi, T Natarajan

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The pitch in Jaipur has been a decent one for the batters. But the spinners have also got some assistance from the surface as shown by Noor Ahmad and Rashid Khan the other day. There is no chance of rain for the time being. Temperatures will be around the 34-degree Celsius mark. The humidity will be on the lower side.
