The Sunrisers are coming off a Super Over defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders and would be raring to go against Rajasthan Royals. David Warner batted at No.4 in the last game vs KKR and could play there again, given how he controlled the innings and nearly took the Sunrisers Hyderabad home in an intense game at Abu Dhabi.
A month on from their first game in the tournament, Rajasthan Royals have been through the highs and lows the IPL has to offer. With only four games remaining, the Steve Smith-led side would look to step on the pedal and get another win in what is another potential do or die clash.
Both teams have a number of match-winners but all eyes will be on how Ben Stokes (RR) handles SRH leg-spinner Rashid Khan. Similarly, the RR vs SRH game should see an intense battle between Jofra Archer (RR) and David Warner (SRH).
RR won their last game against Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets and that gave the team some cheer and a lift in the standings. RR and KXIP are level on points (eight) after 10 matches each while SRH are two points behind.
"There’s obviously a bit of a gap between the top 4 and us and we know the equation for us, so we move on to the next game with a hope to do well and hopefully win against the Sunrisers,” said Jos Buttler, whose majestic 70 not out won RR the game against CSK.
