Highlights

  • 23:16 (IST)

    Manish Pandey is the Man of the Match. Says he had a word with Laxman before the match. Before this game, he says he had too many thoughts while going to bat. Today he was clear in his mind. Our plan was to see off Jofra Archer. There were two leggies in the middle to get runs off and a couple of Indian bowlers as well. Vijay Shankar was long due, today he stepped up batting and I'm happy for him.

  • 23:13 (IST)

    David Warner says it was a complete game for them. When someone's bowling 150+ and nipping it, there's not much you can do. You try to get over the first over, or if you edge it it goes over third man. Unfortunately I hit it to slip. Unfortunately Mitchell Marsh got injured but Jason is a great addition to the side. It's great to show the world that we do have a middle order. They've not always had time to bat, I'm chuffed for them and for the team.

  • 23:08 (IST)

    Steve Smith: We started well, but Vijay played a smart innings and Manish took it away. Third over for Jofra was on my mind, consulted with a few boys and opted against it. In hindsight, would have gone with another over for Jofra. The wicket got a little better in the second innings.

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.

Tewatia has been RR's find of IPL 2020. He has been prolific with the bat and the ball. He has picked 7 wickets in the tournament at an economy rate of just under 7.5. Jofra Archer is their trump card with the ball - he is RR's leading wicket-taker with 13 wickets from 10 matches and also their most restrictive bowler conceding at a rate of just 6.75 runs per over.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

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.

The bowling will be led by the leg-break genius, Rashid Khan. He has picked 11 wickets from 9 matches at a phenomenal economy rate of 5.52. 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.
