RR vs SRH Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter
21-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal has been breathing fire at the IPL 2023. The young Indian batter has been in a league of his own at the ongoing T20 carnival. With 442 runs in 10 games, so far, Jaiswal would be expected to put in yet another sensational performance for Rajasthan in the forthcoming game. His performances have made him one of the frontrunners for the IPL orange cap in the ongoing season as well.
Probable best bowler
Star pacer Trent Boult has been in fantastic form for Rajasthan Royals. The 33-year-old has taken 10 wickets in eight games so far, and being at his best in the powerplay, Boult’s spell could prove crucial for the Sanju Samson-led side against Hyderabad.
