The 52nd Match between Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad will take place on May 7th, 2023 at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
Match Details to Note
Match: Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, 52nd Match, Indian Premier League 2023
Date: May 07, 2023 (Sunday)

Sanju Samson’s team has now lost two games in a row. Their famed batting lineup failed once more, as the team was defeated by the Gujarat Titans by 9 wickets. With this defeat, the team has dropped to fourth place on the points table. Sampson would like to win this game and get his team’s season back on track because they are playing at home.
Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s form has dipped in recent games, and the pair will look to regain form in this crucial game. The middle order is strong, and the side will rely on runs from Sampson, Devdutt Padikkal, and Riyan Parag. Shimron Hetmyer has had a good season, but he needs to score more runs with Ravichandran Ashwin and Dhruv Jurel at the bottom of the order.
The bowling attack must perform well in this game, and they will be looking for tight spells from Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma in the early overs. Adam Zampa, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Yuzvendra Chahal strengthen this attack and will aim to succeed. Parag will also be expected to deliver in his supporting role.
Sanju Samson (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Jos Buttler, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, Sandeep Sharma, Trent Boult, Obed McCoy, Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Sen, Kuldip Yadav, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, KC Cariappa, Jason Holder, Donovan Ferreira, Kunal Rathore, Adam Zampa, KM Asif, Murugan Ashwin, Akash Vashisht, Abdul P A, Joe Root
Players to watch out for:
The young left-hander was run out at the non-striker’s end in Friday’s game but has been in fantastic form. Only Faf du Plessis has scored more runs in the tournament so far.
Jos Buttler has now gone five innings without scoring a half-century for England. He started the tournament brilliantly, and his team needs him to be at his best in this game.
If swing is available, the New Zealand left-arm pace bowler will find it. He can throw accurate yorkers throughout the innings.
Possible Playing XI:
Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Adam Zampa, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal, Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel (Impact Player)
Aiden Markram’s team was defeated by the Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 runs in their last game. This defeat has all but sealed their fate in the tournament. With six points, the team’s chances of making the playoffs are slim. Key players have been inconsistent, and this game will not be easy for the team. The Sunrisers captain wants his players to play their natural game.
The top order must be consistent, with Mayank Agarwal and Abhishek Sharma leading the way. Rahul Tripathi has performed admirably and plays an important role in the middle order alongside Markram and Harry Brook, a one-knock wonder this season. Heinrich Klaasen, Marcon Jansen, and Abdul Samad must add quick runs to the bottom of the order.
In most games, the bowling attack has struggled. To put the Rajasthan Royals on the back foot, they will need to put on a good show with the new ball. Mayank Markande has been in good form and will be crucial in this game. In this game, the team will need strong performances from Kartik Tyagi, T Natarajan, and Markram.
Aiden Markram (c), Abdul Samad, Rahul Tripathi, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Kartik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, Umran Malik, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Heinrich Klaasen, Adil Rashid, Mayank Markande, Vivrant Sharma, Samarth Vyas, Sanvir Singh, Upendra Yadav, Mayank Dagar, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Akeal Hosein, Anmolpreet Singh
Players to watch out for:
The right-handed South African has made good starts in the majority of his innings in the IPL 2023, but he needs to produce a true captain’s innings in this game to help his team win another game.
The keeper-batter has the highest strike-rate (181.73) of any player on this team. In this year’s tournament, he’s averaging 47.25.
The tall bowling all-rounder is capable of bringing out the best players in the opposition. 3-25 are his best T20 figures.
Possible Playing XI:
Aiden Markram (c), Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Harry Brook, Abdul Samad, Marco Jansen, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kartik Tyagi, T Natarajan, Rahul Tripathi (Impact Player)

Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Pitch Report
The Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur is a batsman’s dream. Batters can hit through the line because the wicket has true bounce and pace. Because the ball bounces and turns sharply, spinners enjoy bowling on this surface. Unless the conditions are ideal, there isn’t much help for fast bowlers.
On May 7, there will be clear skies in Jaipur, making the conditions ideal for the game. The pitch is expected to be good for batting, with little support for fast bowlers. To feel comfortable on this surface, the first side batting would aim for 180 or higher.
