Struggling with their poor form and low contribution as a team RR & SRH will face each other to keep up in the league.
Sunrisers Hyderabad who nearly have knocked out from league will face off Rajasthan Royals who created a silver home in the first game of second leg in UAE. Royals will explore top half of the points table if they win today’s match while Hyderabad to remain on the same place whatever the results are.
If they hoped that a change in captaincy from David Warner to Kane Williamson mid-season would change fortunes, it hasn't worked. Their bowling continues to rely heavily on Rashid Khan and the batters, too, are struggling for runs. In a low scorer against Punjab Kings, SRH failed to chase 126. Warner's poor form, and that the middle order has barely made significant contributions, have hurt them.
It’s the similar case in Royal’s area as they contemporary depends upon Sanju Samson while batting. RR didn’t show any team effort although their pace trio impressed in the second leg; Mustafizur Rehman, Chetan Sakaria & Kartik Tyagi.
Predicted Playing XI:
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner/Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav/Virat Singh/Priyam Garg, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed.
Rajasthan Royals: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Liam Livingstone, Sanju Samson (c & wk), David Miller/Evin Lewis, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Tabraiz Shamsi/Chris Morris, Kartik Tyagi, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.
