IPL 2022 – Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals Match 5 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

The Sunrisers Hyderabad will face the Rajasthan Royals in the fifth match of IPL 2022. Sunrisers Hyderabad must forget what happened last year when they were relegated to the bottom of the table. Kane Williamson, the most experienced player on the team, will captain it this year, despite the shocking retention of youthful guns Umran Malik and Abdul Samad. In the auction, they bought the majority of the Indian domestic players, which is extremely noteworthy. The four overseas players that could make the final XI for this match are Kane Williamson, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, and Marco Jansen.

The Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, entirely restructured their team for this season. They had issues with their bowling section in the past, which is why they spent more money on bowlers at the auction table. In this edition, spin pair Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal can help them a lot. For skipper Samson, picking the openers is a bit of a dilemma. Along with Jos Buttler, either Yashasvi Jaiswal or Devdutt Padikkal will start.

The match is scheduled to be played on the 29th of March, 2022 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals Match 5 – Players to Watch


Washington Sundar


He is an all-rounder who has been in great touch recently. He is a regular pick for the national team and an impact player down the order. He is capable of scalping critical wickets while also adding to the scoreboard when his team needs it. The Sunrisers are obviously looking for a change in fortunes this season and Washington Sundar can deliver the impact when they need it the most. An added incentive is the World T20 that is coming up and Sundar will be looking to grab a spot on the team for that coveted all-rounder position.


Marco Jansen


He was picked up by the Mumbai Indians last season but failed to make an impact as he was still being groomed behind the scenes. However, in the recent India vs South Africa series, we saw a more mature Marco and we expect him to bring that sting to the Sunrisers’ bowling attack. He has raw pace in his grasp and it will be interesting to see his progress in this season of the IPL.


Yuzvendra Chahal


The crafty leg spinner was let go by the RCB without even asking him if he wanted to be retained and this is a great chance for him to show everyone the impact he brings to the team he is part of. The Rajasthan Royals bagged him for a steal and he will obviously deliver the wickets as well as keep the flow of runs in check.


Sanju Samson


He has been leading the Rajasthan Royals rebuild for a few seasons but this squad seems to be the best that the franchise has assembled. Not only will he be able to learn from some of the experienced players but he himself will get the freedom to express himself with the bat and if he is consistent enough, then he stands a chance to get a spot on the World T20 squad as well.
