Today Match & Score Update Who Will Win Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals IPL 2018 ?
April 9, 2018
Chennai Super Kings, Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders won their opening matches against Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore respectively. The two remaining teams in the tournament — Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will face off at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
The SRH vs RR match will be a battle between Rajasthan Royals’ batting and Sunrisers Hyderabad’s bowling so it may be difficult to make concrete IPL match predictions right away. Young players such as D’Arcy Short, Jofra Archer and Rashid Khan will also hope to begin the IPL 2018 on the best possible note. On paper, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are evenly matched but are yet to be tested in this tournament. But even though SRH has a slightly better balanced team as against RR, the visitors have a lot more match winners on their side.
