Kolkata: All eyes will be on Kane Williamson, the New Zealand skipper, who took over from David Warner at Sunrisers Hyderabad, who is looking for the wind to turn in their match of the day against the Rajasthan Royals in New Delhi.
Languishing at the bottom of the table halfway through the league, SRH should see some drastic changes in their XI of play. It will be interesting to see if they still keep the combination of confidence between Warner and Jonny Bairstow “ relieved ” in head of the order – where the dashing English opener Jason Roy replaces Warner.
The Royals, who also suffer from a lack of depth in their mid-order, will have to make do with the resources available. This will mean that skipper Sanju Samson will have to take on a role similar to that of KL Rahul at the Punjab Kings and hope that youngsters like Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag and the hard-hitting Rahul Tewatia give them satisfaction.
