Many expected Sunrisers Hyderabad to make some tough decisions and change their starting lineup after a disastrous start to the 2021 Indian Premier League season. However, the decision to exclude David Warner, the team’s only title-winning captain, may not have been widely expected from the captaincy.
But it has happened, and the Orange Army will take the field today with the lead of Kane Williamson. Rajasthan Royals, another team with a shaky start, will be their opponent. The Royals were defeated again by the Mumbai Indians in a recent game and are now in the last place in the standings.
With an average temperature of 38°C, it should be a hot afternoon in Delhi. There is no rain interruption predicted.
As the season progresses, the wicket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium should begin to slow down, allowing a few balls to stick off the pitch and land on the batters. However, the small boundaries at the pitch make it a suitable batting venue, and a score of around 170 should suffice.
Sanju Samson (c&wk), Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, David Miller, Shivam Dube, Rahul Tewatia, Mustafizur Rahman, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya
Kane Williamson (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), David Warner, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Rashid Khan, Vijay Shankar, Jagadeesha Suchith, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
