Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will clash in the first double-encounter on Sunday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. It is a clash between Steve Smith and David Warner, two of the finest batsman for Australia in the modern era. Both are proud captains. However, their teams are at the opposite ends of the points table. Sunrisers Hyderabad are in third position and looking very strong. Rajasthan Royals, after having won their first two games, have now suffered four consecutive losses and are seventh in the points table.
The equation is very simple for Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals. A win for David Warner’s team could solidify their position in the top four. A loss for Steve Smith’s side will make every game of theirs after Sunday a virtual must-win in addition to other mathematical permutations and combinations.
