Rajasthan, who have lost their previous two games, had a dismal outing against Gujarat Titans, as they tumbled for just 118 runs.

Jos Buttler’s form is the talk of the town, as the Englishman has not scored big runs in the last few games. Rajasthan Royals’ middle order have been underwhelming in the past few matches. Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag and others have faced criticism on social media.

In the bowling, RR are a good side, but they want support from every bowler, as often the fifth bowler gets hit for many runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, had a good game against Kolkata Knight Riders, where they dominated the game for the majority of the match, but in the end, their lower middle order let them down.

The bowlers are in fine form for the Sunrisers, and the coming game will see an interesting battle between two great bowling sides.
