RR Playing 11: In the Match 40 of IPL 2021, Rajasthan Royals will lock horns against the Sunrisers Hyderabad team. The team has 4 wins in 9 matches, and need to bag crucial wins in the remaining matches to qualify for the playoffs.
In the last league match, Rajasthan Royals lost to Delhi Capitals by a good margin of 33 runs and have to perform very well in this fixture. The bowlers performed quite well to contain the opposition to a score of 155. Then, the batters could not respond well against the DC bowlers, and Sanju Samson could only play well and the team needs to play well as a whole unit, like they did it in the first match.
The Rajasthan Royals do not have to take enough pressure after the loss against Delhi Capitals. The main positives for the team were bowling performances by Mustafizur Rahman and Rahul Tewatia. The batters have to take responsibility of stitching partnerships which can help the team to have an edge over the competitors.

1. Sanju Samson
The best pick for this match will have to keep playing the same way as of the last league to maintain the team’s hopes alive for the playoffs. In the last league match, Sanju scored 70 runs which proved to be not enough but will be upbeat ahead of this fixture. In this season, he has amassed 351 runs.
2. Mustafizur Rahman
Often called as the cutter-master, Fizz has been a great prospect for the RR team. He has used his variations and yorkers at the right time and has reaped benefits with wickets. In the last match, he added 2 wickets to his tally to make it a total of 10 wickets in the season.
3. Yashasvi Jaiswal
The youngster was phenomenal in the first match of the Phase 2, but couldn’t perform well in the second one against DC. But he is one of the brightest talent to come out of Indian domestic cricket, and can be trusted due to his fine track record. In 5 matches, Jaiswal has contributed 120 runs at an average of 24.
4. Evin Lewis
One of the most talented T20 players all around the world. Lewis can be your vice-captain of this fixture. He is coming into this tournament after being the second highest run-scorer in the CPL 2021. In the first league fixture as well, he provided a terrific start to the team by scoring quickfire 36 runs.
