SRH vs RR T20 IPL Betting Sites

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will start their 2022 IPL campaign when they face each other on March 29 in Pune. Both these teams struggled in IPL 2021 and failed to make the playoffs. The owners of both franchises have made significant changes to their respective squads. IPL betting enthusiasts will be interested to see how these two squads perform as they have been completely revamped.

Kane Williamson has been retained as the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad and so has Sanju Samson for the Rajasthan Royals. If they end up having another poor season in IPL 2022, it could signify the end of their captaincy either mid-season or for next year.

Sunrisers showed the world in 2021 that they were not shy in sacking David Warner as captain mid-season when he did not perform as expected.

The best way to start IPL 2022 is on a winning note and both sides will go hard at each other fight from the first ball. On paper, this looks like a pretty close game as the sides are pretty evenly matched in our opinion.

SRH vs RR Odds

The Sunrisers go into this game as underdogs as Bet365 has given them odds of 2.2 while the Royals are in front with betting odds of 1.67. Since this is the first game for both sides in IPL 2022 and the teams have been greatly revamped, it is difficult to agree with these odds as we don’t have any data to go by.

Judging by the quality of overseas players each side has, the edge can be given to the Rajasthan Royals as they did spend big money to get some heavy hitters into the squad. However, we cannot ignore the Sunrisers as they have a number of young Indian players who are very eager to make a name for themselves during the 2022 IPL betting season and become the next big T20 star in India.

We give you a breakdown of the two sides, analyze some of their strengths and weaknesses below, before giving you our expert prediction on who we think will win this game.

Who Will Win Today’s IPL Match: SRH vs RR Match Prediction

Rajasthan Royals would have definitely been the favorites if they were playing at their home ground in Jaipur. However, IPL 2022 is taking place in Mumbai and Pune and hence both teams will not have any home advantage which we reckon evens the playing field.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad don’t have any batsman other than N Pooran that can really take the game away from the opposition. While Pooran is a fantastic player, he is not a very consistent player in the T20 format and this is a big concern for the Sunrisers.

Their captain Kane Williamson is consistent but he is not a big hitter and will have to play the role of batting through the innings. If the domestic batters don’t fire for the Sunrisers, they will struggle to get past 150 whether they bat first or chase down a total.


The Royals do have an edge in the batting and bowling departments as they have a lot of talent to choose from in both departments. J Butler and D Padikkal will open the innings for the Royals and both have the ability to score very quickly and take the game away from the opposition.

Follow that up with captain S Samson and West Indian heavy hitter Shimron Hetmyer and you have a lot of batting firepower.

The bowling department is also heavy as the Royals have a great spin attack with R Ashwin, Y Chahal, and KC Cariappa, while they will rely on P Krishna and N Saini in the pace department. Throw in the all-around ability of J Neesham and you have a really well-balanced side.

We are going to pick the Royals to win this game due to these reasons.
