SRH vs RR: The 5th match of the IPL 2022 will have Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Rajasthan Royals at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Tuesday, March 29. SRH and RR are the only two teams that haven’t played a game yet in the tournament.
Sunrisers Hyderabad finished at the bottom of the points table last season. They would be looking to make a strong comeback this season. SRH has released notable players such as David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Jason Holder to name a few. Kane Williamson will continue to lead the side and, besides, they have also picked Abdul Samad and Umran Khan.
SRH would be pretty happy with how they have managed to compile their squad after the IPL 2022 Mega Auction. They have managed to bring Abhishek Sharma back into the side, who is likely to open the innings with Kane Williamson. The middle-order will have the likes of Rahul Tripathi, Abdul Samad, Aiden Markram, and Nicholas Pooran.
As far as all-rounders are concerned, the presence of Washington Sundar and Shreyas Gopal should keep the team in good stead. The fast bowling department will have similar faces such as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, and Umran Khan to name a few.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals would be looking to win their second title in the tournament. Sanju Samson will continue to lead the side, while Jos Buttler also remains an integral part of the team. Besides these two, Rajasthan Royals have also acquired the services of two more openers such as Yashasvi Jaiswal and Devdutt Padikkal. It will be interesting to see which two batsmen open the innings for the team.
Besides, the batting department also has the likes of Shimron Hetmyer and Rassie van der Dussen, etc. The bowling looks pretty lethal. The spin bowling duties will be shared by Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin. Trent Boult should lead the fast bowling department and he will be supported by Prasidh Krishna.
