IPL 2022 is entering its fifth match, and we are hoping that this game between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Rajasthan Royals will manage to match the entertainment and drama that we are anticipating. This match will be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, which makes it the first match of the 2022 IPL to be played outside Mumbai, and we are very interested to see the type of wicket that will be served up. Keep on reading to see our IPL prediction of who will win this match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team Preview

The Sunrisers Hyderabad had a 2021 Indian Premier League to forget - they finished bottom of the table with just three wins to their name from the 14 matches that they played. While the rest of the franchises were in contention for a play-off spot right up until the final few rounds of matches, the SRH were out of the running long before. They will be desperate to give their fans something to cheer about this season, and while it is difficult to see them making it to the play-offs, we do not think that they will perform as badly as they did last year.

In the 14th season of the IPL, their stronger suit was their batting, but it is fair to say that their bowling is stronger than their batting this time around. They have a quality pace attack with the likes of Marco Janssen, Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Thangarasu Natarajan. Additionally, with Washington Sundar, they have one of the best all-rounders in the game at the moment. However, we cannot help but feel that they will desperately miss the likes of Jonny Bairstow, David Warner, and Rashid Khan.

With regard to their playing XI, we feel that Rahul Tripathi and Glenn Phillips will be tasked with opening the batting for the SRH and getting their team off to a flier. When one of them gets out, Kane Williamson should be the one who walks to the crease. The rest of their batting line-up will consist of Nicholas Pooran, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, and Sundar.

If you are interested in doing some online cricket betting and want to bet on the batsman that will score the most runs for the SRH in this match, then we would put our money on Pooran. Yes, he has been in poor form lately, but class is permanent, and we expect him to change things around pretty quickly.

When it comes to their bowling attack, we expect to see Romario Shepherd, Umran Malik, Kumar, and Natarajan. If you want to bet on the best bowler in this match for the SRH at some IPL betting sites, then we would suggest that you think about putting your money on Kumar as we feel that he is their best bowler, and we would be quite surprised if he does not finish the 2022 IPL as the top wicket-taker for the SRH.

Rajasthan Royals Team Preview

The Rajasthan Royals finished just one place above Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2021, but they performed a lot better and were just a couple of wins away from earning themselves a spot in the Play-Offs. They won the first edition of the IPL back in 2008, but since then their fans have not had an awful lot to cheer about, with a 3rd place finish being the best that they have managed since then. This time they will be aiming to make it to the Play-Offs, and we think that there is a good chance they can achieve this.

What makes us say this? Well, it is the fact that they have one of the most explosive batting line-ups that you will ever see in the Indian Premier League. They can call upon the likes of Jos Butler, Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, and Shrimron Hetmeyer, which is more than enough to give opposing bowlers countless nightmares. We are actually really looking forward to watching Butler play because when he is at the top of his game, there are few better to watch in world cricket.

When it comes to their starting XI, we think that their batting line-up will be as follows. Butler and Yashasvi Jaiswal will open the batting, while the third, fourth, and fifth batting positions will be taken by Padikkal, Samson, and Hetmeyer. The two all-rounders will be Jimmy Neesham and Riyan Parag.

If you are going to be doing a spot of IPL betting on the best batsman for the RR in this match, then we would recommend you put some money on Butler. He has plenty of experience batting at the top of the order and as we all saw at the 2021 World Cup, he can be absolutely devastating when he is on form. He also gets the advantage of batting in the Powerplay, so he will have more opportunities to score big.

When it comes to their bowling attack for this match, we expect to see the likes of Ravi Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, and Prasidh Krishna. If you would like to place an IPL prediction for the top RR bowler in this match, then we would suggest that you put your money on Ashwin. We all know what he is capable of doing since we have seen him do it time and time again playing for India.

Toss Prediction

There has been 38 T20 domestic matches played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, and the team that has batted first has won 18 times, while the team that batted second has won 20 times. What this tell us is that winning the toss here is probably not as big an advantage as winning the toss at other cricket stadiums. Our toss prediction for this match is that the winning captain will opt to field first. We think that they will choose this option so that they avoid the possibility of having to bowl when there is dew in the second innings.

Pitch Conditions

This pitch is known for being a decent place to bat on, so the batsmen should be looking forward to having a bat on this track. However, it is not a complete batsman's paradise, so the bowlers will not be totally out of the match. The average score batting first here is 159, so the team that bats first will aim to score a bit above par, such as 170, in order to give themselves a very good chance of going on to win the match and getting their 2022 IPL campaign off to a flier.

Our Match Prediction

So, who is it that we predict will win this match today? Well, we feel that both teams will fancy their chances of starting of the 2022 IPL with a win, but our match prediction today is that the Rajasthan Royals will win this match. Our reasoning behind this is because of their explosive batting line-up and the fact that the SRH can no longer call on services of the likes of Khan and Bairstow.
