Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 26th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Dubai Cricket Ground and is scheduled to begin at 2:00 PM local time.
With Jonny Bairstow and David Warner back to their very best, Sunrisers Hyderabad suddenly looks a different team altogether. They’ve had a mixed tournament so far with 3 wins and as many losses but with a big win under their belt in their previous match against Punjab, David Warner will be feeling very confident about his team. The problem for SRH though has been their middle order which hasn’t performed consistently enough. Manish Pandey, KaneWilliamson, Priyam Garg and Abdul Samad has played on off good knock but hasn’t backed it up another performance. This is an issue SRH need to tackle. They would want all their players to contribute to get the result in their favour. In the bowling department, the injury to Bhuveneshwar Kumar was a massive blow but the SRH but the bowlers have responded well with Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan in good form. Rashid Khan obviously is a class act and have been bowling on a different planet.
Rajasthan Royals started their tournament with a bang but have ran out of gas in the last few matches. They’ve lost their last four matches and are tottering at the 7th place in the points table. Their batting has been a big led down after the initial onslaught. Same is the case with their bowling which is looking too sleak at the moment. Yes, there is Jofra Archer but others have not complemented him well. The problems are plenty for Rajasthan but they do the skills to turn it around for them.
