SRH vs RR Preview: Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad target a place in the final when they clash in the IPL 2024 Qualifier 2 on Friday. Both teams have struggled for consistency lately but are on the verge of reaching the summit clash against title favourites Kolkata Knight Riders.

Pat Cummins displayed his leadership skills to lead SRH to playoffs and secure second place in the points table. An impressive all-round performance throughout the season suffered a huge blow after a heavy eight-wicket loss against KKR in the Qualifier 1 fixture. 

Travis Head registered two back-to-back ducks in the last two matches and Sri Lankan spinner Vijayakanth Viyaskanth struggled to impress in his three innings but SRH are likely to field the same playing eleven for the upcoming Qualifier 2. 

On the other hand, Rajasthan returned to the winning ways when it mattered the most. Sanju Samson-led Royals chased down a 173-run target against RCB in the Eliminator clash and will take on SRH with an extra boost of confidence.
