Match Predictions and Betting Odds
In match number 40 of the IPL 2021, bottom-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) face confident Rajasthan Royals (RR). These two sides had opposite results to kickstart the second half of this 2021 edition of the IPL.
SRH’s misery continued in the second half as they suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of table-toppers Delhi Capitals. They huffed and puffed their way to 134 as the batting unit struggled. The bowling seemed to lack bite and couldn’t pose any major threat to the DC batting lineup. This was their seventh loss in the tournament and their chances of qualification are hanging by a thread.
On the other hand, RR got out of jail as they defended a mere eight runs in the final two overs (bowled by Mustafizur Rahman and Kartik Tyagi) against Punjab Kings. They looked dead and buried at one point but those last two overs produced a miraculous win as they got their fourth win of the season. RR’s batting fared well in that first game against Punjab but it fell apart at the death. The bowling will be looking to make amends as well.
The head-to-head record between SRH and RR is all squared up at 7-7. Barring 2018 when SRH won both the matches, in each of the other years, it’s been rather even-steven between SRH and RR.
|Year||Matches||SRH||RR||Tie / NR|
|2013||3||1||2||0 / 0|
|2014||2||1||1||0 / 0|
|2015||2||1||1||0 / 0|
|2018||2||2||0||0 / 0|
|2019||2||1||1||0 / 0|
|2020||2||1||1||0 / 0|
|2021||1||0||1||0 / 0|
|TOTAL||14||7||7||0 / 0|
While the head-to-head record may be even-steven but the kind of display that SRH have put up makes them underdogs heading into this contest. RR will have the winning odds of 1.68, while SRH are placed at 1.96 to win this game.
