IPL 2018 4th Match: SRH vs RR Match Predictions
On Monday we will see a game between two teams who have the potential to compete, but they also have a bit to prove before we can call them genuine contenders. Both teams have quality players in their squads, although they are lacking a little in one area and the opening games are going to be interesting to watch both of these teams. As ever it will be important to get off to a good start, and if someone steps up and performs well for either of these two, that could be the difference maker. Who will win 9th April SRH vs RR prediction is placed below.
SRH will go into the IPL without David Warner, who has been banned for his part in the Australian ball tampering issue. He has been replaced by Alex Hales, a good pickup on short notice and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Hales perform well. With Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Yusuf Pathan and Shakib Al Hasan, there is plenty of batting in this team, their problems may lie with the ball. Aside from the fantastic Bhuvneshwar Kumar there isn’t too much in to bowling department, but if someone else can support him, the Sunrisers have the potential to do very well this season.
RR have also been dealt a late blow with Steve Smith also banned alongside Warner, he leaves a big hole in the team. With Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler in the middle order, the Royals have two of the biggest hitters in the IPL in their ranks, and if those two can get going, then expect to see a lot of fireworks from this team. However, that could all mean nothing if they don’t take enough wickets, and that is something they look like they could struggle with. If the Royals can find a way to take wickets, they could do well, although right now they look low in that department.
The Sunrisers have a good bunch of players and if someone else can step up with the ball to help Kumar they have a good chance of doing well. They have the right quality in their batting line up to go far, and can do well this season. The Royals have some big hitters, but they are lacking elsewhere and the loss of Steve Smith is a big blow for them. SRH vs RR match prediction 9th April 2018 is placed below.
