Weather and pitch report

Tomorrow night’s SRH vs RR match will be quite epic to watch and the battle ground will be the Sawai Mansingh Stadium. Heat will be a massive issue in Jaipur though the are much cooler, to everyone’s relief. However, temperatures will range in the area of 35 -36°C, so it may not be baking hot, but 36° is still enough to make one sweat profusely.

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium is generally known to be  a high-scoring venue, if the previous game against Delhi Capitals was any proof. So, this SRH vs RR game will likely be a high-scoring one as well.

Prediction for match result

Both teams head into tomorrow’s game on the back of mixed results. As mentioned before, the Royals have won their last game after suffering a few losses. The Sunrisers are in the complete opposite situation, having lost their last two games. The venue will be at the Sawai Mansingh stadium, so the Rajasthan Royals have the home advantage.

Conclusion

This is the second time this season that there will be an SRH vs RR meeting. The Sunrisers home leg of the SRH vs RR tie resulted in the hosts winning.
