Two former champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals will meet in match 5 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 in Pune on Tuesday. The SRH vs RR, IPL cricket match will be telecast live on Star Sports Network. Fans can also stream the match live on Disney+ Hotstar.
Sunrisers Hyderabad were known for their consistency. But the 2016 champions finished last in IPL 2021 as they endured a chastening campaign, winning only three matches in 14 outings. Now, Kane Williamson & Co will hope for a fresh start. And they face a very strong Rajasthan Royals side in the opener.
The Royals sensationally won the inaugural edition of IPL in 2008 with Shane Warne leading a relatively young team. But the Jaipur-based team has been competing for the wooden spoon in the recent past, finishing 7th in 2019, 8th in 2020 and 7th in 2021. Led by Sanju Samson, RR can be a force to reckon with this season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson, as usual, will be the key player. His New Zealand compatriot, Glenn Phillips and West Indian Nicholas Pooran form the crux of the batting unit. Indians Priyam Garg and Rahul Tripathi can be handy batters.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the most experienced bowler. The swing master can form a lethal attacking pair with yorker king T Natarajan, who's getting ready for a comeback. Umran Malik is one exciting pace prospect. Spinner Washington Sundar can fill in the all-rounder's role.
Rajasthan Royals: The team is brimming with talent. Samson is a known performer with the bat. Then the likes of Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Rassie Van der Dussen, Jimmy Neesham add muscle to the batting line-up.
The bowling attack will be led by imperious Trent Boult with Prasidh Krishna as his pace understudy. The presence of wily spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal augurs well for the Royals.
