The Rajasthan Royals remain alive in the race for an IPL 2019 playoff spot. They found a hero in the 17-year old Riyan Parag who played an absolutely nerveless inning to help Rajasthan Royals win the match. The team will now return to its home, Jaipur, where it will get ready to face the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
There is no margin of error for the Rajasthan Royals as they must win every remaining game of their’s to try and qualify. The Sunrisers Hyderabad are not in a much better position either. They have won five out of the ten matches they have played so far as compared to four out of eleven for the Rajasthan Royals.
The Sunrisers also need to win at least three of their remaining four matches to be assured of a place in the IPL knockouts.
This will also be the first match that both teams play after losing some key players. The England players have left IPL 2019 and replacing them is going to be a big task for both these teams.
Rajasthan Royals pulled off a last-over win against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous match. It was a mixed performance from a side that has failed to live up to its promise for most of the season. The Rajasthan Royals came into the match with some clear bowling plans and executed them very well.
The addition of Varun Aaron to the bowling lineup had an immediate effect and we are certain he is going to be able to retain his place in the side for this match as well. However, Rajasthan is going to suffer a major blow to its side as Jofra Archer has returned to England for national duty and is going to play no further part in IPL 2019.
That means that Oshane Thomas should continue to play a role in the side moving forward.
Ben Stokes has also returned to England for national duty. His IPL 2019 performances were very poor. Stokes was unable to make an impact with the bat or ball. In fact, he did not even bowl during the last few matches. Ashton Turner is likely to get another chance to replace Ben Stokes in the playing eleven.
The loss of two starting members of the playing eleven will mean some re-balancing of the side. Dhawal Kulkarni could make a comeback in the team but that would definitely mean a loss of batting strength for the Rajasthan Royals.
We like the aggressive manner in which Ajinkya Rahane has been batting in the last few matches and he could be the most important player for the Rajasthan Royals in this match. If Rahane, Samson, and Smith can score runs then the lower order of the Rajasthan Royals will be shielded and the bowling will get some much-needed support as well.
Performing against a strong Sunrisers bowling attack is going to be tricky, however.
Ajinkya Rahane, SV Samson, Steven Smith, Riyan Parag, AJ Turner, Liam Livingstone, STR Binny, S Gopal, JD Unadkat, VR Aaron, Oshane Thomas.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad are going to be dealing with a major loss in their own side as well. Jonny Bairstow has been a part of the most successful batting partnership in IPL 2019. He is the second highest run-scorer of IPL 2019 and has won a few matches for the Sunrisers already.
He has, however, played his last match of the tournament and has returned to England.
Kane Williamson is expected to be back for the match against Rajasthan but that is not yet a sure thing.
Batting has been a problem for the Sunrisers this season with almost 70 percent of their runs coming from Warner and Bairstow. Manish Pandey played an excellent inning in the previous match but the pressure on Warner to score in every single inning is going to be immense.
The middle and lower order of the Sunrisers is filled with all-rounders. Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda, and Rashid Khan. All of these players can bat but we would not consider any one of them a frontline batsman apart from Shakib.
If Williamson does not return then finding a new opening batsman is also going to be tricky.
The bowling for the Sunrisers Hyderabad has not been as effective this year as in previous years but it is certainly pretty strong. Rashid Khan has struggled to pick wickets while Sandeep Sharma is a shadow of his best self.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has also been quite expensive but has started showing signs of good form in the recent games. Khallel Ahmed and Shakib Al Hasan will have a major role to play in the matches going forward.
David Warner, KS Williamson, Manish Pandey, V Shankar, Shakib Al Hasan, WP Saha, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat second. This has been the trend in IPL 2019. The dew also helps the team batting second, even in night matches.

Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2019 is going to be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. This is one of the better batting surfaces in the IPL and the run-scoring tends to be quite high. The match is a night match and so the dew should be similar for both teams, although, batting does seem to get easier in the second inning.
The weather is expected to be hot in the day and then become much better for cricket as the night approaches. There should be no stop in play due to the weather.
There are a lot of variables regarding team selection for this match and so we are making this Dream11 team with the best knowledge currently available, however, we may need to make some changes after the toss has taken place. You can follow us on @cricketbettings on twitter to get the latest updates.
Wicketkeeper: With Jonny Bairstow leaving, Wriddhiman Saha or Shreevats Goswami could make an appearance. We are not keen on either of them at the moment and picking Sanju Samson in our team instead.
Batsmen: David Warner is an obvious pick in the form that he is at the moment. Rajasthan does not have a very strong bowling attack and the match is being played on an excellent batting pitch as well. Stopping Warner from scoring runs is not going to be easy. We have picked Kane Williamson, Ajinkya Rahane, and Ashton turner in our team for this match. Rahane is in excellent form but there is a small question mark over both Williamson and Turner. We believe these could be good players to help differentiate the team if they end up in the playing eleven.
All-rounders: We have picked Shakib Al Hasan, Vijay Shankar, and Riyan Parag from this category. Shakib was very good with the ball in the previous match while Vijay Shankar and Riyan Parag have been in good form as well. All three players that we have picked are going to be in the game with the bat and ball.
Bowlers:We like to select bowlers that are going to pick wickets because that is the only real way they are going to get you points. A steady or even an economical bowler is not going to be of much use. We have picked Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, and Shreyas Gopal for this match.
Captain and Vice-Captain: We think picking David Warner as captain and Ajinkya Rahane as vice-captain is a good option for head to head matches. For the larger lottery style contests, be more experimental with your captain pick. If luck is on your side then you will win something big.
