The Indian Premier League (IPL) has kicked off with a set of thrillers. If the action so far is anything to go by, it would be safe to predict this as a high-scoring tournament with something in it for the bowlers too. However, one thing that has been common so far in the three matches conducted is that the team winning the toss and opting to bowl has gone on to win the game.

This means that toss is going to remain crucial in this league. On Tuesday, the Hyderabad will begin their campaign against Rajasthan who too haven’t played a game yet this season.

Ahead of the season opener for both these sides, here are some stat-based predictions of the match.

1. Toss Prediction

While the toss remains an uncontrollable element, it will play a crucial role so far this season. Given the recent toss numbers, they haven’t been great at winning tosses. In their last games, they have won just one toss. This means that they have won just 20 per cent of the last five tosses. In contrast, Rajasthan have had a 60 per cent toss winning ratio if one sees their last five fixtures. This implies that they have won three out of their last five tosses.

2. Win Possibility

Overall, the two sides have played against each other a total of 15 times. Out of these Hyderabad have won 8 games which gets them to a 53.33 winning per centage over Rajasthan. However, it’s an all square when it comes to the last six meetings between the two teams which means it has been a pretty hard-fought rivalry. Backing Hyderabad with a slight edge in overhead head to head to win this game.

3. Team of the Day

The Team of the Day is Hyderabad. While any team can beat any other side in this format and especially in this competition, for now, the Orange Army is being backed to start of their campaign on a winning note. They look like a strong unit on paper and if they can perform anywhere near their potential on the field, they will get the desired results more often than not.

4. Powerplay Score

The average powerplay score at the is venue is 47.5. Rajasthan top-3 appear to be the more dangerous of the lot in the powerplay overs and are expected to score over 45 runs. In contrast, SRH can adopt a bat deeper into the innings approach and are likely to score fewer than 45 runs in the first six overs.

5. First innings & Second innings scores

The average first innings score at the MCA Stadium in Pune is 168.7. Meanwhile, the average first innings winning score at Maharashtra Stadium is 186.3. Out of the total T20 games played here, 66.7% of the matches have been won by the chasing team. So only a total of 186.3 or above can be defended in this stadium and even that is not safe. Anything below that and the chasing team will fancy winning the game.
