Captains of both sides are in superb form in this tournament as they have been playing match-defining knocks for their side. It really depends to see David Warner, continues to bat at number four or will he returned to his original position as an opener.
In the hindsight, Rajasthan Royals have inconsistent with their opening combinations as they have tried more opening combinations than anyone in this season of the Indian Premier League. Which is why the match expected to star duster let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for from both sides.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 key players we should watch out for when Rajasthan Royals lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad:
1. Robin Uthappa
The veteran campaigner who played over 6 seasons for the Kolkata Knight Riders wasn’t having a good time batting out of position for Rajasthan Royals. He was proposed to bat in the middle order instead of opening the innings as that is his usual batting position.

In the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Robin Uthappa was asked to open the innings along with Ben Stokes and he did bank on the moment given to him as he scored a quickfire 41.
