RR vs SRH Fantasy Prediction: Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – 22 October 2020 (Dubai). This game is a virtual eliminator where the loser of this game will definitely bow out of the tournament.
Rajasthan Royals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the league match of IPL 2020 aka Indian Premier League which will be played at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
Rajasthan Royals won their last game against the Super Kings and this is yet again Do or Die game for them. The bowling unit performed really well in the last game and that is a huge sigh of relief for the side whereas the batting form of Steve Smith and Jos Buttler is also a big plus. The Royals have been very good in the tournament but have lost in pressure situations and this is yet another important test for them
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, should have won the last game but they choked and one more mistake will end their campaign. They have some really good players in their ranks but the lack of execution has been a problem and the senior players of the team have to take some responsibility. This is a Do or Die game for the Sunrisers as well.
Pitch Report – This pitch has been decent enough for the batting in the first innings whereas it gets a little slower in the 2nd innings. The average 1st innings batting score in IPL 2020 in Dubai is 176.
