Preview: Hyderabad and Rajasthan face each other in the 40th match of Indian T20 League at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Notably, when the two teams met for the first time in the ongoing edition, they were Rajasthan who emerged victorious. But this time, the sides will be facing each other in different conditions.
While Rajasthan still have a chance to make it to final 4, Hyderabad will now be playing for their prestige as the side has won just one of the nine game played so far. They are already out of the playoff race, however, they have a very good chance of spoiling the party of the other teams and Rajasthan, who are coming on the back of a 33-run loss to Delhi, could be their latest victim.
Analysis: Sanju Samson looked in great touch during his unbeaten knock of 70 against Delhi in the last game. He could be picked as captain or vice-captain of anyone's fantasy team. Meanwhile, the likes of Jason Holder and Rashid Khan could also be picked for the same role. While Holder was exceptional with his all-round show in Hyderabad's recent game, Rashid has always been one of the key bowlers for the side. Sandeep Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar could also be added to one's fantasy team, alongside Mahipal Loimror, Abdul Samad and Kane Williamson.
Probable Playing XI
Hyderabad: David Warner, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
Rajasthan: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, David Miller, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Kartik Tyagi, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman, Tabraiz Shamsi
Dafabet Prediction of the Game:
Head to head: Both the sides have played 14 games with Rajasthan managing to win 7 and Hyderabad also having as many wins to their credit. However, during the first leg of Indian T20 League 2021 between the sides, Rajasthan had secured a comprehensive win over Hyderabad.
Performance in ongoing edition: While Rajasthan have managed to win 4 of the 9 games played so far in Indian T20 League 2021, Hyderabad have won just one game and lost 8.
