RR vs SRH Playing 11: Two bottom placed teams Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other here at Delhi. This has been a disappointing season for both the teams and both need some wins here to get their campaign back on track. There is not much difference in head-to-head record as out of 13 matches, SRH have won 7 while Rajasthan have won 6. In the last season too, both teams won a game each against each other. This shows how close this rivalry has been over the years and we can expect a cracker of a match.

Young SA fast bowler Gerald Coetzee trained with the squad and will be available for selection. Delhi batsman Anuj Rawat may replace Shivam Dube in the eleven.

Jos Buttler hasn’t been at his usual best for Rajasthan so far and apart from skipper Sanju Samson, no batsman has looked comfortable. They will need to give some more balls to David Miller as he can be a game changer in the middle overs. Sakariya and Morris have bowled well but the inexperience in spin department has hurt Royals’ wicket taking ability in the middle overs.

SRH Team News
If Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit, he is likely to replace Suchith from the last match. Virat Singh, Samad and Holder could replace Warner, Kaul and Shankar in the eleven.

K Williamson (C)
With Warner not the captain anymore, Williamson will lead the side. Sunrisers will hope the change in captaincy brings in the change in fortunes for them. Bairstow and Williamson have been in superb form and Kedar Jadhav also showed his finishing touches in the last match. Apart from Rashid Khan, the bowling has looked helpless thus far and they will look to change that.
