This will for the second time that the SRH and RR will be facing each other in the IPL 2024. It was a thriller between the teams which saw the Pat Cummins-led side winning the game by the margin of just 1 run and therefore it promises to be an exciting clash. 

The head-to-head clash between SRH and the RR has been enthralling as well as both the teams have been tough competitors against each other. The two teams have met each other in 19 games overall. Out of those games, the Orange Army has won 10 games while the Royals have emerged winners in 9 games. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be entering the match on the back of the disappointing loss in the game against Kolkata Knight Riders in Qualifier 1. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals would be high on confidence after beating Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Eliminator of the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and opted to field first in the game against SRH. He also said that they were confident after winning the last game. He, however, is keen to do a bit more with the bat. He stated: 

“We would like to bowl first looking at the conditions and what Chepauk offers in the second half. We are trying our best to recover, the doctors are doing a great job. We are doing much better. We played 70% of our potential with batting and we managed to cross the line. We'd like to be better. Each and every venue, the dimensions change. We are well equipped to prepare accordingly. Same line-up.”

SRH skipper Pat Cummins on the other hand wanted to field as well. He stated that they want to be aggressive and added:   

“That's fine, we would have bowled. The guys will be aggressive, it's not going to work everytime, we are going to lose wickets sometimes. We were well below our best a couple of days ago. Another chance tonight, much of the same.”
