Rajasthan Royals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their eleventh match of IPL 2020 at Dubai International Cricket Ground in Dubai tonight. 

Rajasthan Royals have 8 points from 10 matches and are coming with a 7 wickets win over Chennai Super Kings in the last match and they will look to carry that momentum into this match. Jos Buttler and Steven Smith have come back in form and if the likes of Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, and Robin Uthappa come good then their top order will be fantastic. In the bowling department, Jofra Archer and Kartik Tyagi have been brilliant so far and they are getting good support from Rahul Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal in middle overs. 

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad has 6 points from 9 matches and they need to win this match to stay alive in the play-offs' race. Captain David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have to lead from the front and one of them has to play a big knock as their middle order is out of form and Kane Williamson is suffering from an injury. The likes of Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, and Priyam Garg too have to step up with the bat and in bowling T Natrajan, Sandeep Sharma, and Rashid Khan have been good so far and they need to continue their good work.
