The toss has been won by the SRH captain Kane Williamson who decided to bowl first which seems like the right decision because SRH has one of the best fast bowling options with Bhuveneshwar Kumar, Umar Malik, and Natrajan in the playing XI.
Despite the no-ball, the backbone of RR Jos Butler looks more dangerous with Yashavi Jaiswal on the other end, they both started to encounter the bowling lineup of SRH and make full use of powerplay.
This pair made the most of powerplay and scored 58 runs in the first six overs of the match and which surely generate a movement for RR to make a big total in this match.
Playing XI of RR: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna.
Playing XI of SRH: Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik.
