It is another double-header Sunday and Hyderabad are taking on Rajasthan in the first game of the day. They are coming off a convincing win against Punjab where their opening duo set the game with a match-winning partnership. Hyderabad have six points in their bag with three wins. Their bowling has been the strongest part of their game plan. Their batting depends a lot on the top four. Hence, they would expect them to deliver again and get the two points from Dubai. 

On the other side, Rajasthan are placed at the seventh position in the points table at the moment. They had a good start with two wins in Sharjah. But they could not capitalise their winning momentum and suffered four consecutive losses after that. The consecutive failures of the top batting stars is the major reason behind their collapse in winning form. Their bowling was fine in Sharjah which restricting Delhi below 200. With Ben Stokes coming back to the team after his quarantine, they would expect to turn their fortunes around and get back to winning ways on Sunday.
