The fourth match of the IPL 2023 season will see Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on April 2, 2023. SRH will miss the service of their designated skipper Aiden Markram in the opening game as he is on national duty with South Africa. Veteran India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the team in the absence of Markram.

SRH has a strong pace bowling line-up comprising Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and South African quick Marco Jansen.

RR has two of India’s best spinners in Chahal and Ashwin, as well as Australian tweaker Adam Zampa in the side. The team played some incredible cricket last year and managed to hold onto their squad from 2022. They will be one of the top teams in the tournament.
