Match Preview

In the upcoming Indian Premier League, Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Rajasthan Royals (IPL) on 29 March, 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium. For both sides, this is their debut match. Kane Williamson, the SRH’s talismanic skipper, leads the SRH, while Snaju Samson leads the RR.

SRH’s squad has been totally overhauled, with only Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik remaining from the previous team. At the top, they lack the explosive batsman David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Rashid Khan is also absent from SRH. However, they were able to re-sign youthful talents Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg. Washinton Sundar and Nicholas Pooran are two talented players for SRH.

RR, on the other hand, has kept the nucleus of the group, which includes Jos Buttler, Samson, and Jaiswal. Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Ravi Ashwin, and Yuzvendra Chahal have all been added to the team’s bowling assault. Bowling has been their Achilles heel for the past two years, but they have addressed it this year.
