We are just 12 games away from the playoffs of this year’s Indian Premier League. Players have started returning to their national side for the world cup preparation. Two teams which are terribly hurt by this sudden are Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both of them will be testing their bench strength. Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer for Rajasthan Royals and Jonny Bairstow for Sunrisers Hyderabad have left the team. These were the players who performed consistently this year. For RR, these three were their first choice overseas players.
Rajasthan Royals are almost out of this league. While Sunrisers Hyderabad have played 10 games only and their chances of qualifying for the playoffs is still alive.
The match will be played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium and the team winning the toss should look to bowl first.
