It is the first eliminator of the 2013 IPL play-offs as Rajasthan Royals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad to see who will play Mumbai Indians on Friday.
The Sunrisers qualified for the final four of the tournament in dramatic style, with successive victories against Rajasthan and Kolkata Knight Riders seeing them edge ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore courtesy of just one win.
It is a fairy-tale story for the newest franchise in the competition, after Hyderabad were established to replace the now defunct Deccan Chargers last season.
Home form was the key to their success, losing just one at their ground all campaign and a spin bowling attack of Amit Mishra and Thisara Perera helped see off several accomplished batsmen.
It has been with the ball that the Sunrisers have had their most impact, with No.1 ICC Test bowler Dale Steyn providing superb support to the spinners.
It’s been a different situation for the Royals as accomplished batting has seen them make the play-offs against the odds.
A small budget has not deterred Rahul Dravid and his team and whilst the experience of the Indian captain and all-rounder Shane Watson has been vital, it has been coupled with the faith put in young players such as Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson.
Whilst Hyderabad go into this match in good form, Rajasthan have actually lost their last two fixtures of the IPL after taking their foot off the accelerator towards the end of the tournament when they qualified with two matches spare.
The winner of this tie will go onto play Mumbai in the second qualifier on Friday with the victor of that facing Chennai Super Kings in the final.
