Sunrisers Hyderabad seems to be over-reliant on Warner and Williamson, who hasn't been in their best of form.
Sanju Samson looked in good touch in the previous match though failed to his side home.
Rajasthan Royals Bowlers Mustafizur, Tyagi and Sakariya has done well for the side.
After a Blockbuster Weekend, we shift to Dubai International Stadium where Rajasthan Royals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in a crucial encounter from the Royals view. Evin Lewis and Jaiswal form an explosive opening pair for the Royals as both of them have shown their range of shots against Punjab Kings. It will be interesting to see if Lewis will make it to the 11 after the injury. Samson has played a good inning. The inclusion of Lian Livingstone has certainly given the power to the side in the middle order in the previous match and it will give him confidence. Lormor, Tewatia and Parag are also capable batters in the side. Mustafizur Rahman has bowled brilliantly and has the ability to pick up wickets at crucial Junctures. Shamshi was average in the previous game but this wicket will surely help his style of bowling. Tyagi and Sakariya has also bowled well.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the bottom of the Points Table and has failed to play according to their Potential. The team looks overdependent on Warner and Williamson for runs scoring. If Warner gets out early the whole team falls like a pack of cards, evident in the previous game where they failed to chase down 126 against Punjab. Manish Pandey is the most experienced Indian player in the lineup but hasn't performed well yet for the side and he has to step up if Hyderabad has any chance against Rajasthan. Holder has shown his hitting power in the previous Match. If Batsman can put runs on the board for the side Sunrisers Hyderabad has the ability to defend totals as they have Bhuvneshwar Kumar at the top of the order alongside Sandeep and Khalil. Rashid Khan will hold the key for the side. Jason Holder is also a capable all-rounder for the side. Overall Bowling looks decent for the side.
Even though teams have not really enjoyed chasing as much here in Dubai, not much specifically has changed with the surface over the course of forty overs. Scoring a tall total in the first innings could be a key here, but a good start in the second innings can really offset that advantage.
Taking pace off the ball will be the mantra for the fast bowlers here. For those reasons, batting against the new ball will be the best time. Considering all that, the team batting first should be looking to put a total of at least 170 runs on the board.
