While Rajasthan is sitting pretty at the top, Hyderabad is in the midst of a mid-table muddle. They can improve their top-four chances with a win, but can they halt the toppers? The hosts are well-set to start aggressively once more, and I am backing them to win the first six overs.

The Royals are at the at the top of the points tally with 16 points from nine matches. Their only defeat of the campaign came against the Gujarat Titans at home.

The Royals look settled with their XI but could experiment as Ravichandran Ashwin doesn’t look like a confirmed pick. Nandre Burger could also fancy a game if Boult is rested.

Verdict

Hyderabad have lost their last two matches as their openers stopped firing. There’s a high chance they get back to their best and hit the ball out of the park. Even otherwise, they look to go hard at the top, and so I am backing them to score more runs in the powerplay.
