The 52nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will see the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on the Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Sunday, May 7. Ahead of the match, here’s everything you need to know about the RR vs SRH Dream11 prediction.
SunRisers Hyderabad have underwhelmed this season despite a good off-season in terms of player signings. SRH have three wins from nine matches with their batting unit struggling for consistency.
As for the Royals, they come into the game on the back of two big losses against the Mumbai Indians and the Gujarat Titans. They would want the duo of Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler to step up as they seek a return to winning ways.
The reverse fixture saw Rajasthan thump SunRisers by a whopping margin of 72 runs. But with both sides looking well-matched on paper, an intriguing contest beckons in Jaipur.
RR:- Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c&wk), Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult/Adam Zampa and Sandeep Sharma.

The conditions in Jaipur will be ideal for a game of cricket, with the temperature on Sunday forecasted to range between 25 and 38 degrees Celsius
Jaipur has offered up different surfaces in the IPL so far with the first-innings scores this season reading 118, 202, and 154. The previous game saw spin dominate proceedings, with spinners picking up six out of the 11 wickets to fall.
The powerplay phase may not be as fruitful for the bowlers, who have only accounted for three wickets across six innings. Batting first might be the preferred option, with the pitch likely to slow down as the match progresses.
