ScheduleThursday, 8 May 2014 at 14:30 GMT / 15:30 UK / 20:00 IST
VenueSardar Patel Stadium, Motera, Ahmedabad
Shane Watson is leading the strong unit of Rajasthan Royals nicely whereas Shikhar Dhawan, the skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad, is marshalling his troops. RR has attained 10 points from seven games and are placed at no.3 on the table while SRH is hanging at the sixth position with four points from six matches. The first defeated the latter by four wickets in the 4th encounter and it might be a one sided game again.
David Warner posted his third fifty of the event against Royal Challengers Bangalore and has scored most runs for SRH. Aron Finch is doing well with the blade while Lokesh Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan must bat sensibly with aggression. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is bowling as required but he needs support from Dale Steyn and Karn Sharma.
Pravin Tambe achieved a hat-trick for RR in their last match vs. Kolkata Knight Riders and is the highest wicket taker of the tournament with 12 along with Mohit Sharma whereas James Faulkner and Rajat Bhatia are bowling tightly. The batting powerhouse consisting of Ajinkya Rahane, Shane Watson, Sanju Samson and Karun Nair is at its best.
