Pune: The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) team will face the Rajasthan Royals (RR) team in the fifth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season at Pune on 29th March 2022, 7:30 PM on Star Sports Network and Disney + Hotstar. Both of these teams had a disappointing season the previous year.

While the Rajasthan Royals placed seventh on the table despite winning just five of their 14 rubbers, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team finished bottom, with only three victories in 14 games in the IPL 2021.

In the 2022 IPL mega auction, both teams improved their batting and bowling lineups. Needless to say, following a disappointing showing last year, both of these teams would want to start the 15th season of the IPL on a high note.
