Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 28th match of IPL 2021. Both sides have endured a poor patch up until now and have occupied the bottom two spots on the points table. RR has managed 2 victories in 6 games so far, while SRH has just 1 victory to its name in 6 games. Let’s take a look at the match preview ahead of the SRH vs RR game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi on Sunday.
SRH vs RR Match Preview
Sanju Samson and Co. didn’t have to lot smile about this season. They are playing in the absence of some crucial overseas players, namely, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, and Andrew Tye. Their absence has taken a toll on their performances.
RR suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the last game. Nevertheless, they still have a lot of games left for their campaign to make a comeback. They would be keen to bring their campaign back on track. A lot will rest on the shoulders of Samson, Jos Buttler, and Chris Morris if they fancy their chances in the game against SRH.
SRH, too, is coming on the back of a defeat against DC. Although, they fought hard but fell short of one run in the end. SRH has recently announced the new captain in Kane Williamson. The New Zealand cricketer takes on the captaincy role from David Warner. It remains to be seen if he could turn SRH’s fortunes around in the remainder of the tournament.
Big players like Jonny Bairstow, David Warner, and Kane Williamson are in decent form with the bat. They should back themselves to score big in the next game against RR. Given the recent performances of both sides and the combination, SRH is likely to win the contest on Sunday.
SRH vs RR Probable Playing XI
SRH: David Warner (C), Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul
RR: Sanju Samson (C & WK), Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Kuldeep Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman
