“We are going to bowl first. After a few conversations with guys who have played here, we think it should be a consistent surface. Three changes: Nabi, Bhuvi and Samad are back. Warner, Suchit and Kaul misses out on this one. We know that as a group we need to come together and build on the positive parts. It has been difficult, but we need to pull together now. This captaincy change was very sudden, so I just need to pick up and make the small adjustments which hopefully will reflect on the result. The goal for the last half of the campaign is to improve our performances. There are many areas we need to improve, wickets in the powerplay is one. We have to do our best with our resources and it’s important we adjust to the conditions.” Kane Williamson after winning the toss.
“The last match we played here was a noon game as well and it is good to set a strong total. You only looking for a good start in the powerplay and build up from there. Two changes for us ; Unadkat is on rest and Tyagi comes in. Anuj Rawat is making his debut in place of Shivam Dube. We just want to keep it simple and express ourselves, see the ball and react accordingly.” Sanju Samson added.
David Warner is one of the greatest of all time (GOAT) in IPL. It’s not easy SRH to drop him from their XI. Kane Williamson told on the toss that this decision is completely from management not from captain.
Yashasvi Jaiswal tried to maximise the over of Rashid Khan, Rashid Khan dismissed with a brilliant delivery and lost their review in this same over. Rashid Khan almost dismissed Jos Buttler for two times in his second over. Vijay Shankar misjudgememt and insufficiency of review hurt Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Jos Butter smashed his first ever T20 hundred. He scored 124 runs in just 64 balls. He sent ball out of the boundaries for eight times including 11 fours. Jos Buttler was out of the form before this match and this is plus point for Rajasthan Royals.
Rajasthan Royals have scored 220 runs in first inning. For answering this Sunrisers Hyderabad openers tried their best but failed to do what MI did last night on the same ground.
Manish Pandey was the top scorer with 31 runs and Jonny Bairstow was only another batsman to score 30+ score. Very bad bowling and batting display from Orange army.
Sunrisers Hyderabad changed their captain who their maiden IPL title, they dropped him also. As well as they changed their overseas combination, but still they were winless. Sunrisers Hyderabad witnessed their second hattrick of losses this year.
