Sunrisers Hyderabad meet Rajasthan Royals (SRH vs RR) in Match No.5 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune will hos this encounter.
Sunrisers Hyderabad did not have a successful IPL 2021, where they finished at the bottom of the table. They will be keen to make amends and bounce back strong this time out. Hyderabad are without Warner and Rashid. However, the likes of Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are some big names. While they have a decent pace attack, the batting doesn’t seem to have enough balance.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have also consistently failed to make the playoffs. However, they have added good balance in both batting and bowling this season. Along with Samson, Buttler and Jaiswal, the likes of Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin make them a good-looking unit.
