Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other today in Dubai at the 40th game match of the season. There is no time for either team to rest, though, and they must continue to keep winning.
Rajasthan Royals has formed a new-look batting line up which is going in their favour. However, the poor form of Sanju Samson and Ben Stokes has still been a major concern for RR. The 29-year-old English all-rounder will be looking to regain his form at the business end of the season.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad are on a three match losing streak and desperately need a victory to get back to winning ways in the IPL 2020. It will be interesting to see if Warner returns to the opening position or continues to bat in the middle.
Possible Starting Eleven:
Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson (WK), Steve Smith (C), Jos Buttler, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Ankit Rajpoot and Kartik Tyagi.
Jonny Bairstow (WK), David Warner (C), Kane Williamson/Mohammad Nabi, Priyam Garg, Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Vijay Shankar, Sandeep Sharma, Basil Thampi, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan.
