Match 4 Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

 

Important Notes:

  • David Warner and Steve Smith are out of this tournament
  • Heinrich Klaasen is the replacement for Smith whereas Alex Hales is the replacement for Warner
  • The Indian batting contingent for SRH is pretty strong on Paper and I don't think anyone except Kane Williamson will make it to the starting 11.
  • Spin department for SRH heavily relies on international players. Shakib and Rashid almost look like a certainty into the playing 11. 
  • They might include Chris Jordan for his late order hitting and death bowling. Chris Jordan and Bhuvi together form a formidable pair for death overs. 
  • SRH will need to boost their batting order with foreigners as no Indian T20 regular is in the squad. Entire Indian contingent relies on on Ajinkya Rahane. 
  • Ajinkya Rahane has bad batting average against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. 
  • Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson may be the Indian Part of RR batting along with Darcy Short, Ben Stokes, Joes Buttler.
  • Both Joes Buttler and Sanju Samson can do wicketkeeping duties. 

Probable 11: 

Rajasthan Royals:

Probable11: Darcy Short, Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler,Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat

 
Sunrisers Hyderabad:

Probable 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Yousuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Wriddhiman Saha,, Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Jordan, Basil Thampi,  Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan

 

Dream 11 squads can be selected based on these 11. 

Important Players: Manish Pandey, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shakib Al Hasan

 

Alex Hales and Heinrich Klaasen may be the surprise additions in the squads in places of Chris Jordan for SRH and Darcy Short for RR. 

 

Detailed Analysis in Picking up these probable 11 can be seen below:

Relevant Squad: If we ignore surprises that Mumbai gave with Markande or CSK with Chahar, we can identify the relevant squad which is in the frame for selection for the opening game

 

Relevant squad: Rahul Tripathi, Ajinkya Rahane(c), D Arcy Short, Sanju Samson(w), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Krishnappa Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Mahipal Lomror, Heinrich Klaasen

 

Probable11: Darcy Short, Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler,Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat

 

SRH1: Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Deepak Hooda, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Basil Thampi, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, K Khaleel Ahmed, Sachin Baby, Chris Jordan, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Ricky Bhui, T Natarajan, Billy Stanlake, Tanmay Agarwal, Shreevats Goswami, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan

 

Relevant Squad: Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Deepak Hooda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Basil Thampi, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Chris Jordan, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Billy Stanlake, Bipul Sharma

 

Probable 11: Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Yousuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Wriddhiman Saha, Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Jordan, Basil Thampi,  Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan

 

If Alex Hales feature in the squad, they will have to choose between Yousuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda. Their squad is pretty slim on Spin apart from Rashid Khan. So, i assume they would like to keep the options open. Their Indian Batsmen are their strength. I dont think they will keep Hales in first match and Kane williamson shall open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan. Probable 11 for first match is pretty difficult. Now removing slashes i consider this to be their best bet.
