RR vs SRH IPL: The Rajasthan Royals (RR) have had a pretty disappointing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 campaign so far much due to their star overseas players pulling out at the penultimate moment which has been the major setback to their planning. The Sanju Samson-led team have only been able to win two games out of six matches so far in the ongoing edition of the IPL. Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to make a winning comeback in the tournament when they face the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on May 2.
The Rajasthan Royals do not have the luxury of some good options available on their bench especially in their batting department and thus, they are very much likely to play the same playing XI in this game. Their newest recruit Rassie van der Dussen has joined the RR camp but is yet to complete his mandatory quarantine period.

Shreyas Gopal vs Manish Pandey
