KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Just 48 hours after their disappointing loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals will take on Delhi Daredevils tonight at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur.

Sunrisers' innings didn't get off to a great start either though, with opener Wriddhiman Saha dismissed for just five runs before Williamson came out.

Led by an unbeaten 77 from 57 balls from star Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan, the Sunrisers ran out convincing nine wicket victors over Rajasthan Royals, winning with 25 balls to spare. Sunrisers conceded only 12 boundaries and no sixes against Rajasthan in the first game.

With an expected warm and pleasant evening, we look forward to a complete game as both teams will look forward to register their first win of this year's tournament. A need for introspection would have gripped Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir, captains of both sides, after early setbacks.

Shikhar Dhawan's form is a boon on the batting front for SRH though their batting depth was not tested during the first match.

The variety in Sunrisers Hyderabad's bowling attack will pose a few tricky questions for Mumbai Indians, when the two teams square off in a T20 encounter, here tomorrow. He has proved to be extremely consistent with the bat over the past year or so and will hope to provide stability to SRH's middle-order this season.

Even if the openers fail to get going, the "Indian" middle-order of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda can up the ante at will. He was the only player from the Rajasthan side to score more than 20. Dhawan also has a liking towards MI and this can be concluded by the fact that he has scored 386 runs against Rohit Sharma's squad which is the most by any batsman in SRH vs MI matches. They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar with his superb skill sets of seam and swing, Billy Stanlake for raw pace and Siddarth Kaul to hit the deck.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the best limited-overs bowlers in the world right now and will spearhead SRH's bowling attack for the rest of the season. He was equally brilliant in the field as he ran D'Arcy Short out in the first over to dent RR. The IPL record signing, Stokes has been struggling with injury and bowling with a shortened run-up. On Tuesday, he picked up the wickets of Tripathi and Samson in the space of four deliveries in the 14th over to leave Royals tottering at 95 for 5. His returns of two for 17 were one of the key reasons behind the impressive performance of Hyderabad against Rajasthan. Although some players are not the biggest global names, they have had some incredible success in recent T20 tournaments.
