Today Match Prediction for RR vs SRH: The 28th match of IPL 2021 sees Rajasthan Royals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. RR and SRH have currently occupied the bottom two spots on the points table. Their performances have been underwhelming so far. 

SRH haven’t got the start that they would have wanted. Kane Williamson’s absence in the initial games weakened their middle order. Lack of runs from the middle order didn’t help either. Also, injuries to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan have made things worse for them. Nevertheless, they would be desperate to turn their fortunes around ahead of the match against RR. In a big announcement made on Saturday, Kane Williamson has been the made the new skipper. He will lead the side for the remainder of the tournament. 

The onus will be on the star players such as Kane Williamson, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow among others to turn the fortunes around. It remains to be seen how they fare for the rest of the tournament. 

Rajasthan Royals too suffered from the absence of star players. Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Andrew Tye have all missed out. RR suffered a seven-wicket loss against MI in the last game. However, they have shown the fight and SRH wouldn’t be taking them for granted. The likes of Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Chris Morris are in good form. They would be keen to help RR get back to winning ways.
