IPL 2018 Live Score, RR – 140/6 (20 Overs) | SRH – 151/7 (20 Overs)
Rajasthan Royals will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 28th match of IPL 2018. This will be the first day-night match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.
Last time when these two teams met, it was their opening match of this season and Sunrisers Hyderabad just smashed the Royals by 9 wickets. Right now, SRH is placed at the second spot in the Points Table with 5 wins out of seven matches while RR is at the fifth position with three wins.
One thing that has emerged in this year’s IPL just like every other season is the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling where they have defended scores like 118 and 132. That has happened even without their star-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Rajasthan Royals has had a mixed tournament which is reflected by their position at the Points Table. They have many match winners like Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson in their side. Samson is being performed right from the beginning and Stokes is also pushing himself up but the form of Unadkat will be a concern for RR keeping in mind the amount they paid for him.
SRH will look forward if they can get Bhuvneshwar Kumar back in place of Basil Thampi/Sandeep Sharma. Also to strengthen their batting, they might Alex Hales instead of Mohammed Nabi. While RR may look to drop Shreyas Gopal to play an extra batsman against Hyderabad’s power-packed bowling.
