Sun Risers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals are heading for a big clash in the first match on Sunday. Both the teams are strong enough to give a tough fight to the opponent. But, SRH will be the favorites of the match with success to their side. RR faced four consecutive defeats, and their confidence levels are fragile. The match will be interesting with these two teams aiming for a better position on the points table.
Both SRH and RR played 6 games each in the tournament so far. They will come half-the-way in the tournament with the current game. RR won 2 games among the 6, and SRH won 3 games. The win in this game is significant for both the teams. So far, they played in 11 games together. SRH won 6 games, and RR won only 5 games in the Indian Premier League.
Teams wise, SRH looks solid when compared to RR. Both teams are facing a similar issue with the middle order. But all the players in SRH are in good form. The batsmen of RR are struggling to score runs in the middle. Even in the bowling department, no one except for Jofra Archer is playing well. The team has to up their game and make a comeback. SRH, on the other hand, is riding high with a strong bowling department.
