DATE -2nd May, 3:30 P.M
Venue – Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
The bottom of the table clash is here! RR is in 7th place while Sunrisers are at the bottom of the table. SRH recently shared that David Warner has been stripped off the captaincy while the captaincy would be taken over by the New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson.
Feroz Shah Kotla has shown how flat a wicket can be and it would be interesting to see how well the batsmen from both the teams perform here. Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson from the Rajasthan Royals look in great touch while Kane Williamson looked in good form the previous game showing great intent and scoring runs at a quick pace alongside Kedar Jadhav who also smashed his share of sixes.
I am backing the Sunrisers Hyderabad to win this game as releasing Warner off captaincy even means that he is no longer needed to be in the playing XI for every game and this could bring in more flexibility in the team. Wriddhiman Saha can open with Bairstow and they can add another all-rounder in place of Warner.
