Preview:

Even though they have just four and five games left in the tournament respectively, both the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are pretty much alive at this stage. The Royals won four games out of six while the Hyderabad team won three out of nine.

In their last match, the Rajasthan Royals registered a great win against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and have got the winning momentum on their side. However, for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), it wasn’t the same kind of a result. They took the game against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) into the Super Over. However, they let the match slip away and need to get back to the winning ways sooner than later. Earlier in the tournament, the Royals pulled off a brilliant chase against this opposition.

The temperature will be around 30 degrees Celsius at the start of the game and will fall to about 28 degrees Celsius as the evening progresses. The humidity levels will also rise during the night.

There have only been four successful chases at Dubai in this tournament. Two out of those four came in the last three games and three of them in the last six matches. Even though the pitches tend to slow down here in the second half, the high humidity levels are helping quicken the pitch slightly making it a level playing field.
