IPL 2022: SRH vs RR, Match 05: Pitch Report, Probable XI and Match Prediction

In the fifth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Tuesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.

After failing to qualify for the knockout round of IPL 2021, both teams stacked their squads with several quality players at the 2022 mega-auction. While SRH bought Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, Romario Shepherd and Marco Jansen among the foreign players, RR revamped their bowling lineup by roping in Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna.

Head-to-Head record

Played: 15 | SRH won: 8 | RR won: 7 | No Result: 0

Pitch report

The pitch on offer will help the pacers throughout the match, and the batters can expect a lot of chin music. There will be opportunities to score big if one spends some time out in the middle. Winning the toss and fielding first will remain the best option due to the dew factor.

Probable XIs

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (captain), Nicholas Pooran (wicket-keeper), Aidan Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan/Kartik Tyagi

Rajasthan Royals: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (captain, wicket-keeper), Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
