- Match: Hyderabad vs Rajasthan, Indian T20 League
- Date: 29th March 2022
- Time: 07:30 PM IST
- Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune
Hyderabad and Rajasthan will face off in the fifth edition of the Indian T20 tournament. Both teams have one championship under their belts and will be vying for a second this season. Last season, these two clubs had a terrible season, finishing in the bottom two spots on the points table. Both teams played 14 games, with Rajasthan winning five and Hyderabad winning three.
This season, Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma are expected to start for Hyderabad. Expect Abhishek to attack from the first ball with Williamson as the anchor. With Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram in the mix, the squad boasts a high-intent middle order. Keep an eye out for Abdul Samad.
The bowling appears to be a little shaky. Bhuvneshwar Kumar would have to elevate his game in order to help T Natarajan and Umran Malik. Romario Shepherd, a fast bowling all-rounder, might be a viable alternative for Hyderabad.
With batsmen like Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, and Shimron Hetmyer, Rajasthan possesses a strong top-five. Riyan Parag is likely to be assigned to the finishing responsibilities because the lower order isn't very trustworthy.
R Ashwin and Yuvendra Chahal, Rajasthan's spin combo, are ideal for the Pune conditions. With the new ball, Trent Boult will be vital.
