A fine restrictive bowling effort from RR coupled with a splendid performance with the bat from Jos Buttler handed the team a much needed seven-wicket win over CSK in their last encounter. While Steven Smith has also regained his form, it will be the dramatic dip in performance of Sanju Samson that will worry RR. After starting the tournament with two breathtaking knocks at Sharjah, he has spectacularly fallen registering scores of 8, 4, 0, 5, 26, 25, 9 and 0. Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag and their ability to finish a match gives the lower-middle order a lot of depth.

SRH have lost their previous three matches and dug a big hole for themselves in IPL 2020. Jonny Bairstow has got starts in the last couple of matches but failed to convert them into anything substantial. Manish Pandey, who was consistently scoring runs for SRH in the first half, has been dismissed for single digits in the last two encounters. Warner got some runs from Number 4 against KKR and will in all probability continue to bat in the middle order to play the role of the playmaker.

T Natarajan, the left-arm medium pacer has been impressive too and has also bagged 11 wickets. Sandeep Sharma has not picked many wickets but been very restrictive conceding at a rate of just 7.58.
