If one goes by the records, both Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) have shown equal power against each other. In the SRH vs RR clashes, the head-to-head record of 9-9 proves both sides fight tooth and nail.

When it comes to the bowling in the first six overs, Rajasthan Royals have an economy of 8.04 in nine innings, which is the best among all the franchises in IPL 2024, before the SRH vs RR clash. In comparison, Sunrisers have struggled for their 9.70 economy in the powerplay.

While the Royals have also picked up the third-most wickets (16) in this period, the Pat Cummins-led side have done a decent job with 14 scalps. It’s also about the fact of how the teams have used their bowlers with the new ball and kept the opposition openers calm for most of the time.

The inaugural champions smashed the joint-lowest sixes (13) in the powerplay. On the flip of the coin, the 2016 champions have been smoked for the fourth-highest sixes (25) in this period before the SRH vs RR encounter in the IPL 2024.
