Rajasthan Royals, who are now at the bottom of the points table will clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Rajasthan's home ground at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Sunrise Hyderabad are delicately placed at the fourth spot with five wins and five losses from 10 matches. Although they seemed resurgent in the middle phase, they lost the last match against Chennai Super Kings.
Initially, it was their batting which was not clicking other than openers Jonny Bairstow and David Warner. However, with Manish Pandey coming in form in the last game and Vijay Shankar also batting decently well, it augurs well for their batting display in the future.
A setback for them would be the return of Jonny Bairstow who would be joining the English team for the ODI series against Pakistan soon. The team is likely to bring Wriddhiman Saha as his replacement which will also free another overseas spot.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has also got his rhythm back and has been bowling well along with Rashid Khan and Khaleel Ahmed.
After being removed from captaincy, Ajinkya Rahane smashed the second century of his IPL career in the last match and looked in complete control. However, the team still has to cope with the absence of Jos Buttler.
Sanju Samson will open the batting along with Rahane, while Steve Smith will follow at number three. Smith has notched up back to back half-centuries after taking up captaincy. Jofra Archer would lead the bowling attack for the Royals.
