Read a match preview and watch a live cricket stream of Rajasthan vs the Sunrisers in IPL 7.
Where: Sardar Patel Stadium, Motera.
When: Thursday 8 May, 15.30 BST.
The 2014 IPL continues with Rajasthan Royals having the chance to move up to second with victory over struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Spearheaded by captain Shane Watson, Rajasthan managed to beat Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match against the odds to make it five victories from seven so far in the tournament.
The Sunrisers meanwhile have triumphed just twice in six games and were overshadowed by a superior Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last outing.
Watson has been consistent with the bat, whilst youngster Karun Nair has been in fine form at the top of the order and is well supported by fellow Indians Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson, along with Australian all-rounder Steve Smith.
With the ball the Royals have looked good too, with seamers James Faulkner and Tim Southee leading the line, whilst the feel good story of the competition has been the form of 42-year-old spinner Pravin Tambe.
As for Hyderabad, their formidable opening partnership of Shikhar Dhawan and Aaron Finch needs to lead from the front in order for the franchise not to fall too far behind in the race for the playoffs.
David Warner and Darren Sammy also supply ample support with the bat and paceman Dale Steyn leads the bowling attack – begging the question why the Sunrisers have been doing so poorly in IPL 7 so far.
