IPL 2023: SRH vs RR, Match 4: Pitch Report, Probable XI and Match Prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will square off against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the match no. 4 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday (April 2). While RR will be led by their regular skipper Sanju Samson, the Hyderabad-based team will be captained by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the absence of newly appointed skipper Aiden Markram who is not available for the SRH’s opening game due to international commitments.

Notably, RR’s Jos Buttler finished the last year’s IPL as the highest run-scorer and amassed 863 runs for his team in 17 matches.

Rajasthan-based side will enter the field with full confidence and an aim to register a win in their first game. Meanwhile, Hyderabad will also look to start the 16th edition of the league on a good note.
