Rajasthan Royals hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad at Match No. 52 in Jaipur. A sudden dip in the RR camp has set so much confusion among the points table. They were doing extremely well until the last two games, which went against them, unfortunately. However, this situation has urged RR to do well in this game against SRH. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad, even after setting up a well-balanced team in the auction, didn’t do what was expected from them as a team. Even though they have a well-balanced team, they miss the momentum needed for this tournament. It will be more interesting to watch how RR will take on the lowest on the table after their two defeats.
Time: 7.30 PM IST
Venue: Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur
Most probably a spinners’ track which would give less runs on the board.
What to Expect?
Since RR is filled with stellar spinners, they obviously have the edge over SRH based on the spin department. But with the batting SRH looks good and dominant. So we can expect a good game of cricket with both the bat and the ball.
Probable Playing XIIs
SRH Possible XII:
Henrich Klaasen(wk), Mayank Agarwal, Harry Brooks, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram(C), Mayank Dagar, T Natarajan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, Mayank Markhande
RR Possible XI:
Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen, Trent Boult
Captain : J Buttler
Buttler who hasn’t been in great of his form, would look to contribute in this home game. No matter how the pitch is going to behave, Buttler has the ability to shine on any surface on his day.
Vice captain : Ashwin
As the pitch offers more for the spinners, the master in the business, Ashwin will be the right pick to be the vice captain.
Batsmen : Padikkal, M Agarwal
Both the Indian batters are pretty good at playing spin. They sweep well and also step out most often.So, Obviously they are best suited batters on this pitch.
Wicketkeepers : S Samson, J Buttler, Klaasen
All three destructive batters are also the match winners for their side. Since it is going to be a crucial game for both the teams, it’s high time for them to step up and take up the responsibility, which these three usually do.
All rounders : Ashwin, Markram, Jansen
Markram is a good batter of spin but at the same time he bowls more effectively to the left handers. Since RR has got three to four lefties in their batting line up, Markram is the go to bowler for us.
Jansen’s pace variation will be the last thing a batter would like to face on this pitch.
Bowlers : T Natarajan, Chahal, Boult
Boult’s new ball bowling will always be a nightmare for any opening batters as the swing speaks a lot.
Chahal is definitely going to be a game changer on this surface which provides plenty of turn.
T Natarajan’s death over bowling is again vital for SRH. The role he does for SRH gets rewarded with wickets. So he is our best choice of a fast bowler.
