Rajasthan Royals’ captain Sanju Samson has won the toss against Sunrisers Hyderabad and opted to bat first. Kane Williamson is leading SRH in what is a must win game for both sides.
RR are without Kartik Tyagi due to injury. SRH’s got Jason Roy replacing David Warner.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are without David Warner and Jason Roy will make his debut for the franchise. Warner has had a troubled season for the SRH side.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are placed bottom of the table with Rajasthan Royals on sixth. The SRH side have lost their last 3 games.
A loss today will end their mathematical chance of going to the play-offs. SRH are going through a phase similar to what CSK had last year. But do they have it in them to bow out on a high - if they have out - with successive wins like Dhoni and Co. did? And they are playing CSK, KKR, RCB and MI after today - all tough games.
"We are using exactly the same surface we used last night. It still looks fantastic. Nice coverage of grass, got a good sound... tap, tap, tap, tap, tap. Looks hard. One side is just 62 metres," reckons Simon Doull about the pitch.
"Yes, the pacers had success with slower balls, but if the batters stand in the crease they can hit down the ground or use the shorter boundary. For me it still remains good for batting," adds Anjum Chopra.
