The pitch no 7 is going to be used for the second qualifier. It has not been used so far in the tournament. It is darker than the other pitches and black soil is used for it. A bit of bounce for the seamers but not a lot for the spinners. The square boundaries are 61 and 72 metres whereas the straight one is at 77 metres. Spinners can be proven useful here. The par score is 185-190. According to the curator, there won't be dew.

Jaydev Unadkat and Aiden Markram have returned to the playing XI as Shahbaz Ahmed is rested from the Sunrisers Hyderabad line-up. Rajasthan Royals are going with the same team.
