It is time for the battle between the Orange army and the men in pink for the first time this season. David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Steve Smith’s Rajasthan Royals at the Dubai International cricket stadium on a Sunday afternoon.
Both sides have had a patchy form this season as Rajasthan Royals have only won their first two games of the season which came at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium but ever since those wins they’re on a losing streak of 3 matches, the latest loss coming against Delhi Capitals two days back.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have also looked sloppy this season with three wins and three losses they haven’t looked in great touch this season. Obviously, the injury concerns have hit them hard with the loss of Bhuvneshwar Kumar being an irreplaceable one.
Which is why this encounter between the two sides is expected to be a contest of sheer high volume as both teams will be in the hunt for another win this season.
Let’s Take a Look at the five key players to watch out for when Rajasthan Royals lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad:
1. Priyam Garg
The young and sensational Priyam Garg has looked in phenomenal touch this season. After playing that sizzling knock against Chennai Super Kings in the death he has shown us what he is actually capable of.
Talking about his form, he along with Abhishek Sharma have been the heart and soul of the Sunrisers Hyderabad death over batting this season as we all know Sunrisers Hyderabad do not have known finisher in the lineup which is why the performance of Priyam Garg has been key to Sunrisers Hyderabad finishing games off this season.
