Rajasthan Royals v Sunrisers Hyderabad
22/10/20, 3pm (BST), Dubai
RAJASTHAN ROYALS – 10/11
SUNRISERS HYDERABAD – 10/11
Rajasthan Royals grabbed themselves a lifeline with a win over Chennai Super Kings on Monday, and a superb all-round performance will have given them confidence that they could yet gatecrash the top four.
For Sunrisers Hyderabad, they know that they must win if they are to retain similar hopes.
Jos Buttler was at his destructive best in the middle order and suggested at a new-found balance for the Royals, whereas Sunrisers came out on the wrong end of a Super Over and are now three games without a win.
Despite that, the two teams are both priced at 10/11 to win the game.
Jos Buttler to score over 25.5 runs – 1/1
After dismantling the CSK attack, the smart money is on Buttler to continue that form and make a score against Sunrisers. His familiar middle-order role looks to suit the team and if they are chasing, there are few better around than the England man.
Given Jofra Archer’s miserly opening spells – no bowler has bowled more dot balls – neither Jonny Bairstow nor David Warner to win the race to 10 runs at 10/1 is a good bet.
|Jos Buttler – 262||David Warner – 331|
|Steve Smith – 246||Jonny Bairstow – 316|
|Sanju Samson – 236||Manish Pandey – 212|
|Rahul Tewatia – 222||Kane Williamson – 181|
|Jofra Archer – 13||Rashid Khan – 11|
|Rahul Tewatia – 7||T Natarajan – 11|
|Shreyas Gopal – 7||Khaleel Ahmed – 8|
|Kartik Tyagi – 6||Sandeep Sharma – 4|
