Things are beginning to take a nice turn for the Rajasthan Royals, as they continue to grab important points. For a side that spent most parts of the campaign in the bottom-two, who would have envisaged RR challenging for playoff qualification this term? But this is exactly how affairs are panning out!
Admittedly RR are winning games at the moment, but we cannot help but notice the minor issues in their top-order. In the previous fixture, they had been on the back-foot before gaining control through Jos Buttler and Steve Smith’s combined efforts to score a massive 96 runs between themselves.
Frightening with his pace, Jofra Archer often leaves opposition sides chasing shadows, and will be hopeful of delivering a superb performance in this upcoming contest. RR will need spinners Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia to continue wowing fans with the ball in crucial overs.
Already on a two-game losing streak, SRH have to rise from their ruins soon enough. Against a formidable KKR side last time out, they weren’t expected to come away with anything substantial. Failing to prove doubters wrong, the Orange Army were comfortably dispatched.
In a rather horrific show from Warner’s men, openers Kane Williamson and Johnny Bairstow were the only bright sparks, striking a whopping 58-run partnership in their power play.
However, the incompetence of the middle order saw them relinquish control of the match, as they ultimately bowed in defeat.
Evidently, their bowling unit needs a major overhaul as they have struggled to get going this season. A pretty balanced team, RR’s bowling and batting lineup looks decent. They will be looking to take advantage of SRH’s bowling issues to secure victory here.
