In the last game, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s strong batting unit failed as Rahul Tripathi played a lone hand with a fifty before Pat Cummins’ late cameo to reach 159. However, KKR in response finished the chase inside 14 overs. Despite the loss, SRH got another shot at reaching the final thanks to finishing second in the points table. Their openers have the biggest role in carrying the team to the playoffs this year and the team will expect a strong start from them in this fixture. Sunrisers will try their best to give it all to win this game and book their place in the IPL 2024 final. 

On the other hand, four straight defeats couldn't hold back the Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator. The team displayed newfound focus, chasing down 173 runs and winning by four wickets over Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Royals will be delighted that star opener Yashasvi Jaiswal got some crucial runs under his belt in this all-important encounter. Jaiswal was the top-scorer for Rajasthan with a fluent 45 off 30 balls. His form can be detrimental for Rajasthan in Qualifier 2. Rajasthan’s bowling is in good shape and will aim to continue their momentum to move a step closer to the IPL title.

Rajasthan Royals will be out for revenge when they play Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2. Hyderabad emerged victorious in their only encounter this season, a nail-biting one-run win. However, Rajasthan's dominant victory in the Eliminator has boosted their confidence. Hyderabad has a formidable batting line-up, but their success is dependent on the openers getting off to a flying start. Hence, RR are favourites to win this clash.
