The 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on inaugural season winners Rajasthan Royals in match 26.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Sunrisers Hyderabad

With three wins and as many losses, David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad holds the third spot at the Points Table. SRH played their last game against Kings XI Punjab, where they registered a thumping victory by 69 runs. Their openers Warner and Jonny Bairstow laid the foundation of their win with a massive partnership of 160 runs. 

Despite losing Bhuvneshwar Kumar before the start of this game, SRH bowlers did a commendable job to defend the total comprehensively. The Hyderabad-based will look to take the field with a similar playing XI. The only change they can think of is to bring back Vijay Shankar (if he’s fit) in place of Abdul Samad.

Rajasthan Royals have had a forgettable season so far in this edition of Indian Premier League. After winning their first two matches, RR reached the pole position at the Points Table. But after that, Steve Smith and co. suffered four consecutive losses to find the second last spot in the charts.

Rajasthan Royals’ last game came against Delhi Capitals where they lost to chase down the total despite a decent bowling effort. The good news for them is the arrival of the ace all-rounder, Ben Stokes in their squad for this match. It would be interesting to see if the Englishman can turn around the fortunes for the Royals or not.
