IPL 2019 Match 8 SRH vs RR Rivalry, Timings, Venue and Stats

The Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will play their 2nd match of IPL 2019 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad (Home Ground of Sunrisers Hyderabad). Both the team will try to open their account for this season as they have lost their opening matches. It will be the first match for the SRH at their home ground in this season.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Strength and Weakness

SRH will be boosted by the return of David Warner. The Australian couldn’t participate last year because of the ban imposed on him. Despite his absence, SRH did well with the bat. With Warner’s comeback, the batting unit rockets to another level.

The weakness, if any, is in the pace bowling department. With Rashid Khan in the line-up, their spin bowling is in the best hands. But as far as Indian pacers are concerned, there isn’t a big name.

Rajasthan Royals Strength and Weakness

Rajasthan’s batting seems to be sorted. They have a good mix of Indian as well as overseas batsmen who are experienced at this level. The likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson will be the standout Indian batsmen. On the other hand, the return of Steve Smith only makes thing better as far as the overseas line-up is concerned that already consists of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.

In the pace department, they have Jofra Archer to lead the way. Jaydev Unadkat is also a handy bowler. But when it comes to spin, they can be found wanting. None of the spinners present in the side pose a huge challenge to the opposition and on turning tracks, this can haunt RR.

Rajasthan Royals complete squad

Ajinkya Rahane, Prashant Chopra, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Aryaman Birla, S. Midhun, Krishnappa Gowtham, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Ish Sodhi, Dhawal Kulkarni, Mahipal Lomror, Ben Stokes, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Shashank Singh, Shubham Rajane, Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Liam Livinstone, Ashton Turner, Oshane Thomas, Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat
