The Rajasthan Royals recorded a morale-boosting victory over the Chennai Super Kings in their last IPL 2020 fixture. The inaugural IPL winners will now collide with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their eleventh match of the season.
The Royals would be quite confident heading into this match, because they beat the 2016 champions by five wickets in their first meeting of IPL 2020. Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia stitched a match-winning partnership for the sixth wicket as RR defeated SRH in a close encounter.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have struggled to play with consistency this year. In the nine games that they have played so far, SRH have recorded only three wins. They are in a 'do-or-die' situation now, and the David Warner-led outfit need to win their upcoming match versus the Royals.
Here's a look at the head-to-head stats between the two former IPL champions ahead of their reverse fixture in IPL 2020.
