Stunned Royals face Hyderabad test | PunterPolls Prediction

Before match polling (Normal polling), going to be close half an before the match starts. Please participate in the In-Match polling once the match will start.

In-Match Polling

Separate polling which will start with the toss and remain till the match end. This will give us true picture about how you are reading the game while in progress. Hoping that this will help us to predict the game in much better way. So don't forget to participate in the IN-MATCH polling.

Please note, if we will not get very good response in this polling we will no longer continue after few matches.

It is that time of the year again. Exactly a year ago, the BCCI suspended five Indian domestic players for alleged corruption. Three more, all from the same franchise, have been suspended a year later, and this time, a Test cricketer is allegedly involved. Rajasthan Royals will barely have had time to let the revelations sink in. They had a day's gap between their penultimate league game in Mumbai and their last one in Hyderabad, and were travelling when the news was being broken to the outside world.

The statements from Delhi police, shocking and disturbing as they are, don't take anything away from Rahul Dravid and Royals, who have done exceedingly well this season to make the playoffs ahead of fancied sides such as Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. They now need to pick themselves up to face Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are also coming off a defeat to Mumbai Indians.

While Royals have lost nothing at home this season, they have won only two of seven away matches. The playoffs won't be in Jaipur. This is their last chance to try and finish in the top two so that they get two shots at making the final. A win may not take their minds completely off what has happened but nevertheless, a win is still a win.

Sunrisers are among the three sides in contention for the final playoff spot and are also the best placed among them, though their net run-rate at the moment is lower than Royal Challengers and Kings XI Punjab. After a scarcely believable assault from Kieron Pollard, they are back at their home ground, where their bowlers have tied down visiting sides this season. Sunrisers have another match to go against Knight Riders on Sunday, but considering their run-rate, would not want to leave it for then.

  1. Guys, today RR will win. coz Dravid will definatly prove that he is strong and nothing can hamper his confidence.

    today dravid and rahane will rock again with an excellent opening partnership.

    today SRH will also play good cricket both with bowl and bat but enuf to beat RR.

  2. Hi Guys,

    Sorry we won’t be able to post our views earlier in the day. Since Toss had already happened, we have decided to put our opinion as a comment.

    Sunrisers have won the toss and elected to bat first. We have seen slow cricket on this ground except the last encounter against the CSK;s where we have seen pitch was dead rubber.

    Anyhow, comeback to today’s game. We all know what had happened in last couple of days. Royals been in big trouble and they are surely mentally been effected by that.

    Sunrisers does have good record defending the total, especially at their home ground.

    So…Sunrisers should win this game.
