1. Rajasthan Royals – Team News
Royals finally seemed to have got their opening combo right with Yashasvi Jaiswal slotting in along side Jos Buttler. And with literally four overseas options available to them, they will have to persist with same team from their last match although they ended up on the losing side.
However, Royals may rethink about their batting order in the games to come with David Miller finding very less time in the middle. Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag are yet to shine in this edition, but are expected to be given more time due to their all-round ability. If they really need to change, their options are either Mayank Markande and Shreyas Gopal.
2. Sunrisers Hyderabad – Team News
SRH will bring in senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar if he is fit and available to replace either Siddharth Kaul or Sandeep Sharma in the 11 from the last match. The other change could come in the form of either Abdul Samad or Abhishek Sharma as the duo offer some all-round options.
Left-arm spinner Jagadeesha Suchith had a decent outing in his debut for SRH, but was very expensive in the three overs he bowled in the one-sided run chase by CSK. So, he may be the one to make way for the all-round options.
