RR WON: IPL Live Score, RR Vs SRH: Rajasthan – 161/3(19.1 Overs) | Hyderabad – 160/8 (20 Overs)
The 45th match of the Indian Premier League 2019 is between the Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur today. This will be the 12th match for the home side while the SRH is playing their 11th match of this season. Both the teams are placed at the lower half of the Points Table but the scenario for the teams is completely different as SRH need to win three out of their remaining four games while the Rajasthan Royals will have to wait for the different permutations and combinations for their qualification even after they win their remaining three games as they will finish with 14 points after this provided that they do it.
Rajasthan won their previous game which was a brilliant encounter against the Kolkata Knight in which young Riyan Parag performed excellently with great temperament and almost won the game for his team and the finishing touch was provided by Jofra Archer who won the game for them in the last over of the match. But that was also the last game for him along with Ben Stokes in this season as they have left midway for the world cup preparations for their national team and for the series against Ireland.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, lost their last game which was against the Chennai Super Kings in which Shane Watson regained his lost form in this season and played a brilliant knock of 96 runs. But SRH also took a huge positive in that game as Manish Pandey who was dried of runs from the past two seasons played magnificently. Along with him, David Warner also continued with his terrific run in this season as he scored his fifth consecutive fifty plus score in this season.
Just like Rajasthan, SRH is also hit by huge blow as their star opener Jonny Bairstow too went to England along with Stokes and Archer. So, there are a lot of changes expected from both sides as SRH will look for a new wicketkeeper and this will affect their team balance and this is this will be the similar case for RR as well, so, it will be interesting to see the team combinations of both the sides.
