RR finish with a flourish. 109 runs coming off the last 7 overs. After losing the toss and put into bat, RR lost Jaiswal in the third over. RR have lost big players this IPL and one of their remaining big names wasn't firing. However, Jos had different plans as the Englishman enjoyed playing his shots on the small ground. Sanju Samson fell to Vijay Shankar, holing out to long-off where Abdul Samad took a nicely judged catch. Rashid Khan was bowled out early because of his record against Buttler and Samson. Buttler was quite lethal at the back-end, reached his maiden IPL ton and ensured that RR cross 200.
SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl .SRH on Saturday made a surprise announcement that Williamson will be taking over from Warner as the captain of the side for the remainder of the 2021 season. Warner has also been dropped from the playing XI for Sunday's game. At the time of toss, Williamson said: "We are going to have a bowl. After a few conversations with guys who have played here, we think it should be a consistent surface. Three changes: Nabi, Bhuvi and Samad are back. Warner, Suchit and Kaul miss out on this one. We know that as a group we need to come together and build on the positive parts. "On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson said:" The last match we played here was a noon game as well and it's good to set a strong total. You only look for a good start in the powerplay and build up from there. Two changes: Unadkat is resting and Tyagi comes in. Anuj Rawat is making his debut in place of Shivam Dube. We just want to keep it simple and express ourselves, see the ball and react accordingly."
