The 45th game of the Indian Premier League will Rajasthan Royals take on SunRisers Hyderabad in the 12th season on Saturday.
Rajasthan Royals are in the 7th spot in the league table and are fighting with a chip on their shoulder. The team is finally winning important games, and even though there is going to a mass exodus in terms of overseas players soon, the franchise is still giving itself a chance to get of the mess. They were the first champions in the IPL, and have been a shadow of their former selves since then. With only three games left, things are only going to get interesting.
Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad are in the 4th position and they will be looking to keep this spot for the rest of the regular season. The team has done well, and have one of the best attacking lineups, but are going to be without their superstars as well come playoff time. The team needs help and stability from their Indian players, and even though they lost the last game, that is exactly what they got. The management will be cautiously optimistic about their chances from this point forth.
Venue – Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur, India
Date & Time – 27th April | 8:00 PM IST

This pitch is a bit slow and since the ground is rather bigger than an average Indian Stadium, scoring runs become difficult.
