Team News and Probabale 11

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals had an abysmal start to their 2018 IPL campaign as they went down to the 2016 IPL champions Sunrisers Hyderabad by nine-wickets.

Skipper Ajinkya Rahane had a day to forget both with the bat (13 off 13 balls, as well as a slip fielder, having dropped Shikhar Dhawan in the very first over, who went on to bludgeon the RR bowlers to all corners of the ground with a pristine 78 off 57 balls. Apart from Rahane, all of Rajasthan’s marquee overseas recruits, in Short, Stokes, and Buttler accounted for just 15 runs between them.

While Rajasthan certainly missed the services of injured Jofra Archer, their fast bowlers in Laughlin and Unadkat were pretty expensive and they’d be looking for an improved performance in their homecoming.

Probable XI: 

Rahul Tripathi, Ajinkya Rahane (capt), D’Archy Short, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, S.Gopal, Stuart Binny/K Gowtham, Ben Laughlin, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat

Delhi Daredevils

The Daredevils ran into a rampaging KL Rahul, who stroked his way to the fastest IPL fifty in history and come Wednesday they’d be looking to revamp their campaign against Rajasthan in Jaipur.

While Munro didn’t get going, Gautam Gambhir anchored the innings with a sublime 55, but it is their middle-order which is expected to be bolstered by Glenn Maxwell,  in Iyer, Shankar, and Pant who all had an indifferent first game to step-up.

As per their bowling, the fast bowlers’ except Trent Boult, were lacklustreAmit Mishra was taken to the cleaners by Rahul, but expect the vile leg-spinner to comeback valiantly.

Probable XI: 

Gautam Gambhir (capt), Colin Munro, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell, Vijay Shankar, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Amit Mishra/Shahbaz Nadeem, Trent Boult, Mohammed Shami
