With four consecutive losses, Steve Smith-led Rajasthan has a lot to worry as race for the playoffs intensifies. The batting mostly is dependent on Steve Smith
and Sanju Samson but both have been struggling to put some runs.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad
come into this fixture on the back of a sensational 69-run win over Kings XI Punjab. Despite losing ace pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the David Warner-led side has been able to perform better in tough situations.
Rajasthan would be desperate for a win as it faces SRH on Sunday.
SRH vs RR Pitch Report
The venue has seen a few high scoring matches lately, and with this being an afternoon clash, it looks like 180-plus wouldn't be too difficult for the side batting first.
There is little bit of help for the pacers, the spinners would have a limited role in the middle overs.
SRH vs RR head to head
SRH won: 6
RR won: 5
