After securing 3 wickets win over Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, Rajasthan Royals are back in den to host Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next assignment. The hosts are placed bottom second in table and need to win each of their remaining fixtures to book a spot in playoffs. Royals have managed four wins in eleven encounters and need to win their three remaining fixtures with good margins to finish off in top four positions.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the opposite, are placed fourth in the ladders with five wins and five defeats in ten outings. They require at least three wins in their four remaining encounters and the road to it is definitely not easy. One of their key contributor with the bat- J Bairstow has flown back home and the side is forced to try a different combination at the top. The middle order failure is another concern for the side.
When last time these two sides met at Hyderabad, Sunrisers turned out to be victorious by 5 wickets. Put into bat first, the Royals posted 198 runs total on the board, courtesy Samson’s 102* off 55 balls. However, Sunrisers' run chase was powered by the hundred runs opening partnership between Warner and Bairstow which saw the side register an easy 5 wickets win with an over to spare.
So, with the both the sides missing out the overseas giants, let's see who takes an edge this time.
