After a slow start, the Sunrisers Hyderabad seem to have found their form in IPL 2020 as they have registered three wins in their last four fixtures. The Orange Army recorded a magnificent 69-run victory against the Kings XI Punjab in their previous game.
On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals are on a 4-match losing streak in IPL 2020. They had won their first two games, but the Royals have looked off colour in their last four games.
The Steve Smith-led franchise have received a significant boost ahead of their seventh game in this season as star all-rounder Ben Stokes is available for selection. The team will look much more balanced now, and RR will be keen to make a fresh start to their campaign in Dubai on Sunday afternoon.
