New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns with Sanju Samson's Rajasthan Royal in today's Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Dubai International Stadium. Rajasthan Royals are eyeing a return to winning ways in order to keep their play-offs hopes alive, while Sunrisers Hyderabad, last on the points table, will look to play party-poopers.
RR is currently placed seventh in the standings with eight points from nine games, while SRH are already out of contention following just one victory and eight reverses. In the second leg of the T20 league, RR defeated Punjab Kings by two runs before losing by 33 runs against table-toppers Delhi Capitals on Saturday.
SRH, on the other hand, lost by eight wickets and five runs against DC and Punjab, respectively, post-IPL's resumption in the UAE. Today, RR would definitely fancy their chances against SRH in the battle of strugglers. In the first leg in India, RR defeated SRH by 55 runs. In their game against DC in the second leg, the RR bowling unit continued its impressive show, restricting the opponents to 154 for six.
SRH, on the other hand, have had a disastrous campaign this season, suffering eight loses out of nine games they have played so far. With nothing to lose after being knocked out of the tournament, bottom-placed SRH will look to play party-poopers from here on. For SRH, it is all about enjoying the remaining few games and ending on a high.
