Rajasthan Royals (RR) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in match 41 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 Match 41 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Both teams have been going through a tough patch, but RR secured a win in their previous game and that will give them a lot of confidence going into this game. Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2015 Match 41: Preview

RR also defeated SRH the previous time they met each other in IPL 2015 convincingly. RR at that time were in excellent form but their form has taken a dent ever since then. Ajinkya Rahane is the tournament’s leading run-scorer 430 runs. RR will look to him once again to deliver at the top. SRH have lost just two in their last five matches, including a loss in their previous match.  IPL 2015: Delhi Daredevils, Rajasthan Royals look to keep themselves on course for a play-off berth

Both teams will look to win and make a push for the Top four spot. If SRH lose this match, they might find it very difficult to make it to the play-offs.
