Rajasthan (8 points from 10 matches) and Hyderabad (6 points from 9 matches) are in the bottom half of the eight-team standings. RR, led by Steve Smith, comes into the contest on the back of a morale-boosting win against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The overseas quartet of Smith, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer will once again hold the key for Rajasthan. The Indian contingent, comprising Sanju Samson, Rahul Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal among others, would hope to complement the foreigners.
SRH, which suffered a ‘Super Over’ loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), will be keen to return to winning ways. A lot will rest on captain David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson in the batting department. The bowling unit, led by leg-spinner Rashid Khan, will look to execute its plans well.
