Sunrisers Hyderabad were beaten by the individual brilliance of Andre Russell in the first match as despite putting up a formidable total on the board, the team was not able to defend it, inspite of having a great bowling line up.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals made a meal of the 185-run target in their first match against Kings XI Punjab. After getting a solid start, credit to a 78-run partnership between Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler, further bolstered by decent knocks from Sanju Samson and Steve Smith, their lower middle order collapsed under scoreboard pressure and the team lost their last six wickets for just a handful of runs.
David Warner was back for the team in the first match and made a mark instantly, scoring more than 80 runs. Similarly, Jonny Bairstow and Vijay Shankar also contributed. Kane Williamson is currently nursing a shoulder injury and and is not a certainty.
Their bowling consisting of Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma and Siddarth Kaul was economical but could not pick up wickets periodically.
Rajasthan Royals would expect a bit more from all-rounders Ben Stokes and Krishnappa Gowtham as they were not able to make a mark in the first match. Despite having all the resources, the team has to work on executing their skills in pressure situations as it has been noticed several times that they lose the plot when faced with tough situations.
Probable playing XIs of both teams.
