Kane Williamson: "We would have batted as well. It's the same surface from last night, so it's important that we adapt quickly with the ball. We need to limit their total.

There's a few young players coming in to get an opportunity to play, and it's exciting to see them on show. Jason Roy comes in for David Warner, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav both miss out and Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg come in. 

It's important that the young guys come in and stick to their strengths. We're a good unit, we want to come out and play the cricket we're proud of, even though we're no longer in the running. We want to keep working hard."

Rajasthan Royals win the toss and opt to bat first

"We want to bat first, the atmosphere here is right for us to bat first. Our last match was a disappointing loss it was very hard to come out of that defeat, but that's what IPL teaches you. You have to take the lessons as they come and move on. We're a good team, so we need to keep moving ahead. We have some fitness issues. Kartik Tyagi misses out due to an injury concern, and we have Chris Morris and Ewin Lewis coming back in." - Sanju Samson

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the IPL 2021 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).

While both teams still have a shot at the playoffs, Rajasthan's chances are much better compared to Hyderabad. SRH are currently placed last on the table with just one win from their nine matches. A victory today will take Rajasthan to fourth spot. 

Stay tuned as we will bring you all the updates from the match.

Live Score RCB vs MI, IPL 2021, Today's Match: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the IPL 2021 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).

Preview: The competition is heating up and RR would look to get crucial points on the board against a struggling SRH side. RR have travelled a roller-coaster in the 2nd leg as well. They snatched victory from jaws of defeat against PBKS but then lost heavily against Delhi Capitals. They need to regroup and come out all guns blazing against SRH. They are languishing second from bottom with eight points and would be desperate for a win. Their batting let them down in the last match. The bowlers did well to restrict DC to 154. They still could have done a better job as it was a slow wicket.

Chasing the target, RR lost Liam Livingstone, Yashasvi Jaiswal and David Miller inside 5 overs and then kept losing wickets at crucial intervals. They never got the momentum going and it built the pressure. Sanju Samson was the lone fighter as he made 70 off 53 balls but he didn't get the required support from the other end.

RR need to be wary of the fact that SRH will have nothing to lose as they have been knocked out and they might play some fearless cricket.

Chris Morris and Evin Lewis missed out in the last match due to niggles and RR would be hoping both are back for the crucial tie.

SRH, on the other hand, would be looking to hit the reset button after a disappointing campaign where they have won just one match from 9 so far. The batting hasn't clicked at all and they couldn't chase down 126 against PBKS in the last match.

Jason Holder (47 off 29) and Wriddhiman Saha (31 off 37) were the shining lights in the chase. They might look to make some changes and give the youngsters a chance in order to build for the next edition. A lot more will be expected in the batting department from senior pros like David Warner, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, and others.

With SRH having nothing to lose and RR looking to stay in the hunt for the play-offs, we can expect a cracker.
