RR vs SRH: Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face off each other in the 28th match of Indian Premier League 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday.
Both the teams have played six games till now, out of which Rajasthan have won two games while SunRisers Hyderabad has only one win under their belt.
Rajasthan Royals are currently placed at the 7th spot on the points table with two wins from their six games. Royals’ two victories came against Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, while their defeats came against Punjab Kings, Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Rajasthan Royals have issues in batting and that’s a cause of concern. They haven’t quite managed to get hold of themselves. Their bowlers need to control their variations with the ball and the batsmen have to be patient rather than forcing things.
Talking about SunRisers Hyderabad, their sun has not been rising from the last few matches they have played and this is one of the reasons why the franchise decided to replace David Warner with Kane Williamson as SRH captain, just ahead of their Sunday’s fixture.
Not just this, the team management also made the decision that they will be changing their overseas combination for the match against Rajasthan Royals. It could mean Warner may be rested for Sunday’s game. However, nothing is confirmed yet.
SRH’s main issue is the lack of experience in the middle order. Their Indian contingent with the bat is horrendous. They are dependent on David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson, which means a solid top three will need to deliver. They have done well with the ball though. Rashid Khan has been a leader of the pack. Khaleel Ahmed has done well.
As long as their head-to-head record is concerned, out of a total of 13 games between Rajasthan and Hyderabad. Rajasthan has won 6 games while Hyderabad has won 7 games.
Overall, both teams will be desperate to clinch a win in Delhi, with the IPL 2021 points table slowly taking shape with each passing game.

RR vs SRH Weather & Pitch Report
As seen in the previous match between Chennai and Mumbai at the venue, a high-scoring game beckons at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday. There isn’t much spin or swing on offer as the bowlers will look to take the pace off as the match progresses.
Both teams will ideally look to chase, given the dew factor in the second innings. 180-190 should be par at the venue, with wickets in hand being key to either side’s fortunes. Anything under 170 should be chased down easily here.
