  • 18:56 (IST)

    IPL 2024 Live: RR enjoying great run

    Runaway leaders Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, will look to continue their near flawless run. The inaugural edition’s champions have shown then are perfectly equipped to compete anywhere.

    SRH vs RR Live: Head and Abhishek eye comeback

    SRH are too dependent on the explosive starts provided by Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma. And, while the duo gets going it’s great but when they flop, SRH will want to do a better job at re-building their innings. It’s also about time Aiden Markram steps up and justifies his spot in the playing XI, having had an underwhelming season thus far.
