Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will face Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 50th match of IPL 2024 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Rajasthan Royals are the team to beat in the tournament, having won 8 of their 9 games and comfortably leading the standings. They are on a four-match winning streak and will look to continue their dominance in the upcoming game against SRH, who have stumbled in their recent matches, suffering consecutive defeats at the hands of RCB and CSK.
