Steven Smith, the Rajasthan skipper, says that they have addressed the problems and hopes to change things around. On chasing on this wicket, Smith feels that the surface will slow down a bit and hopes that they bowl well and keep them down to a small total. Tells that Ben Stokes is in for this game. Tells that there are two more changes as well. Tells that Riyan Parag and Robin Uthappa are back in the team as well.
David Warner, the skipper of Hyderabad, starts off by saying that there is no pressure on himself and Bairstow up top and that they need to make the most of the situation. Adds that it helps to have a lot of younger players in the team and that they are calm and composed and that the senior players let the younger players express themselves. States that there is one change as Vijay Shankar comes in for Abdul Samad.
TOSS – Time for the flip of the coin! Both the captains are out in the middle. Up it goes and it lands in Hyderabad’s favor! They will BAT!
PITCH REPORT – Kevin Pietersen and Michael Slater are out in the middle for the pitch report. Slater says that the pitch is the same as last night and it seems to be slowing down. Kevin says that the pitch is getting a little dry and that the grass is gone. He also adds that bowlers are bowling short of length because of the square boundaries. Slater adds that there will be fewer wickets and much more runs. Both of them agree that if you win the toss, you have got to bat first.
What about Rajasthan? Two thumping victories to begin the tournament and then hammering in the next four games. Samson started the tournament with 2 stunning half tons but since then has failed to get to double digits in the next 4 games. Smith and Buttler too have failed to get going consistently. In the bowling department too, it’s been all Jofra Archer. The spinners have done well in patches but the collective effort hasn’t come from them either. There are chances that Ben Stokes who has finished his mandatory quarantine period might play this game and if that happens, it will be a massive boost for them as the Englishman can turn things around with both bat and ball.
Let’s talk about Hyderabad first! They started poorly as they lost their first two games and then made a fine comeback to win 3 of their next 4. On the back of their fantastic win against Punjab in their last game, the side will be high on confidence. There is still a bit of instability in the middle order of their batting but with Bairstow and Warner leading the charge, it has been working well for the Orange Army. The bowlers arrived a bit late to the party for them but they certainly have and will look to repeat their performance from the last game.
Hello all and welcome to yet another double-header day in the Indian T20 League. We are just about 30 minutes away from the toss of the first game. Who are playing first? Two Australians are leading their respective sides. Yes, it’s Hyderabad vs Rajasthan!
