Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be hoping to change the fortune under their newly appointed skipper Kane Williamson when they take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) on 2 May, in Match 28 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Both teams are sitting at the bottom half of the points table.
Rajasthan will be coming to the Hyderabad fixture after a 7-wicket defeat to reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI). Once again, the onus will be on skipper Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler to provide Rajasthan with a decent start. Despite the recent outcome against MI, they are likely to retain their playing XI.
Many will focus on the Hyderabad team against Rajasthan. Yesterday, they hinted they might make a change in their core overseas options. Williamson’s appointment as captain may lead to David Warner being left out, which will be a major blow for the latter’s ardent fans. Warner has been one of the superstars of the tournament.
Moreover, Hyderabad may recall Abhishek Sharma for J Suchith. If Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets fit ahead of the Rajasthan game, he will replace Siddarth Kaul.
- Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson are highly dependable batting options.
- Chris Morris and Rahul Tewatia can produce good value in any Fantasy XI.
- Rashid Khan, Mustafizur Rahman and Chetan Sakariya can be handy with the ball.
Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Jason Holder, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed.
