Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 40 Preview & Prediction

The lower half of the league table in IPL 2020 is very interesting. There are five teams, all of whom are in contention for one potential playoff spot, and all of whom are very close to each other. Two of these teams, the Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad, are going to be taking on each other in this match.

While Rajasthan Royals delivered a confident victory over CSK in its previous match, SRH ended up losing to KKR in a Super Over contest. That was a match which SRH would have desperately believed it could win and so the loss is going to hurt a lot. There is no time for either team to rest, though, and they must continue to keep winning.
