IPL 2019, SRH vs RR Preview: Who will win?
New Delhi: New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson is likely to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad today taking on the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League. Both the team will be looking to register their first win in the IPL 2019.
The Sunrisers will have a selection problem to address; Kane Williamson, Who does he replace? Jonny Bairstow, who was involved in a 118-run opening stand, or Shakib al Hasan, who had a poor outing with the ball?
On the other side for Rajasthan Royals, Buttler looked in great touch in their opener but he would look for more support from the likes of Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Ben Stokes in the batting department.
In particular Smith, who returned to the IPL after missing the last edition following the ball-tampering scandal, would be eyeing more time at the crease ahead of the upcoming ODI World Cup.
Both the team looks strong on the paper it’s just their performance on the day will decide their fate.
