With all eyes on the return of England all rounder Ben Stokes, Rajasthan Royals [RR FULL SQUAD LIST] seek the revival of their fortunes against a confident Sunrisers Hyderdabad [SRH FULL SQUAD LIST] today in the first match of the doubleheader. While in the second match, Mumbai Indians [MI FULL SQUAD LIST] and Delhi Capitals [DC FULL SQUAD LIST] will have a face off in the battle of equals as both of them are table toppers. (SRH vs RR Live Score, Live Updates)

It is to be seen whether the World Cup winner, who has been out of action for some time now, is afforded the luxury of some practice or is played straight up. Rajasthan, having lost to Delhi Capitals by a big margin of 46 runs, will look to stage a comeback. An aggressive bowling display coupled with some good fielding saw them restrict Delhi Capitals to 184 for eight. However, the batsmen, save Yashasvi Jaiswal (34) and Rahul Tewatia (38), struggled during the chase.

While Sunrisers were on their way to suffer back-to-back defeats before opener Jonny Bairstow and star spinner Rashid Khan helped them beat Kings XI Punjab by three wickets on Thursday. For Sunrisers, Bairstow has been in prime form this season, smashing 97 off 55 balls against KXIP, and the English opener was at his explosive best against the Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, too.

In the second match later in the evening, many small battles are expected to unfold when the season’s two most consistent teams — Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals — cross swords in the 27th match of the season. Be it a potent top-order, a strong middle-order or a lethal bowling attack, there is hardly anything that separates the two sides. If at all one team has a slight upper hand in any department, it’s the experience in Mumbai Indians’ pace bowling arsenal. Both Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, with years of experience behind them, could be the difference in the most sought-after contest of this edition.

Probable XIs:

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar/Jayant Yadav, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

Royals desperately need victory

Despite having big names in the side, Rajasthan Royals have been struggling to win. Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Robin Uthappa, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ankit Rajpoot are a few of big names who could turn the table. Team would expect these batters to score bit today against Sunrisers.

Best of Royals vs Sunrisers over the years

Shane Warne-led Rajasthan Royals (RR) dominated in most of the matches against Deccan Chargers from 2008-2012 with 7 wins in 9 matches. However, Hyderabad’s fortunes changed after they rechristened SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH). The Hyderabad team have won 6 out of 11 IPL matches against RR from 2013 to 2019. [Read More]

Bairstow will go big today?

A lot is expected from Jonny Bairstow as he hit 97-run knock against KXIP to set up Sunrisers win. Bairstow was severe against pace and spin and SRH will want him to continue in the same vein.

Rashid Khan vs Jos Buttler?

The Rashid Khan vs Jos Buttler battle would be on cards today as Rashid was once again miserly and picked up three wickets for 12 against KXIP. The leg-spinner will be someone that Warner will bank on against the likes of Buttler, Smith, Sanju Samson and Co.

While on the other hand, if RR has to win, Buttler will need to fire. He has shown flashes of brilliance in all his innings in the IPL 2020 and has a 44-ball 70-run knock against MI, but he will be looking for a big score against SRH to set the ball rolling for RR.

All eyes will be on Sanju Samson

After a few flamboyant innings, Rajasthan Royals Sanju Samson is back to mediocrity this season. After striking a confident 74 and 85 in the first games in Sharjah, he has failed to reach double figures, let alone a big innings. In four matches played he has scored just 17 runs. So will his bat do the talking against Sunrisers today?

David Warner vs Steve Smith

Hello and welcome to an exciting Sunday where two IPL matches will be played. In the first match of the day, David Warner will face Steve Smith and it is not the first time that these two will be facing each other in the IPL, but still the Warner versus Smith contest will be one to watch out for. While one has had a successful run with SRH as a captain and as a batsman, the other is one of the finest batsmen going around. Although the two will be fiercely focussed on the eventual outcome of the match, there may be a battle within a battle to be won with regards to their batting prowess.
