Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the toss and opted to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals in Delhi. The last match we played here was a noon game as well and Hyderabad will be looking to replicate what the Mumbai Indians did a few days ago. For the Royals, Unadkat is resting and Tyagi comes in. Anuj Rawat is making his debut in place of Shivam Dube. However, the big change from Hyderabad team is the omission of David Warner from the playing XI. Nabi, Bhuvi and Samad are back. Warner, Suchit and Kaul miss out from the playing XI.
Even though it is a used pitch, there is a covering of grass. In between and amongst that there are some worn patches that will allow the seamers to grip, or if it hits the grass it would slide. From the other end, the spinners too will get a lot of grip. Tom Moody, Director of Cricket - SRH, says the idea is to maintain the balance - Two overseas batsmen (Williamson, Bairstow), Rashid Khan and an all-rounder. RR know a thing or two about SRH's predicament. They've swapped captains midway through the season. Sanju Samson hasn't had an easy start to the captaincy himself. Injuries, bubble fatigue has left them deprived off some big names.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (Playing XI): Jonny Bairstow(w), Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Mohammad Nabi, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
