Who will be number 3 for Rajasthan tonight? It is Sanju Samson. His season started off well but it has gone downhill after first two games. Can he regain his lost form?
3.3 overs (0 Run) OUT! RUN OUT! This is such a cheap wicket to give away and Uthappa who was looking good so far has to walk back. He will be mighty disappointed with the manner in which he has been dismissed. Back of a length ball around middle and leg, Stokes makes some room and looks to play at this but misses and it hits his body and rolls to the off side.

3.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! That was so close to being out! Stokes needs to be really careful! He survives this time around. On a full length around middle, Stokes gets low and looks to paddle scoop this over the keeper and it just goes by Bairstow's gloves into the fine leg fence.

2.4 overs (1 Run) A single to follow up the biggie as Uthappa drives this towards the cover region. Warner does well to stop this one.

0.5 over (0 Run) Some movement again for Sandeep! He will be delighted to start off with the ball moving. On a good length around off, it moves into the right-hander, Uthappa looks to flick but misses and gets hit on the pads. A tame appeal but nothing from the umpire.
0.4 over (0 Run) A hint of inswing on this occasion! On a good length around off, nipping into the right-hander, Uthappa works this to the cover-point region and yells no for the single.
0.3 over (1 Run) Stokes is underway as well! Back of a length ball around off, Stokes punches this one towards the deep cover region and will get a single.

Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith says he was looking to bat as the wickets are getting older and older. Smith says they have been playing for a long time and are used to the pressure and is happy to play in this league. Tells it was a magnificent win and says they are heading in the right direction but admits it would have been better to get a couple of more wins. Tells that one has to be playing well but also peaking at the right time. Ends by informing us that they are unchanged from the last game.
Hyderabad skipper, David Warner, says that not much will change and says that the ball held up in the first innings. Informs Williamson has done something to his quad and Jason Holder comes in as well as Shahbaz Nadeem in place of Basil Thampi. Tells it has been tough not to add him in the side. Warner says he is always nice and calm but adds he was edgy after losing a couple of games but he is zen after going to the beach and relaxing.
TOSS - We are all in readiness for the spin of coin. Steven Smith, the Rajasthan skipper, is present alongside David Warner, the Hyderabad skipper. Steven Smith calls Heads but it comes down as Tails. HYDERABAD OPT TO BOWL!
PITCH REPORT - Murali Kartik and Kumar Sangakkara are down with the pitch report. Sangakkara says that it is a great surface. Adds that there is grass on it but it is hard on the inside. Karthik reminds that the team losing the toss has won the game. Sangakkara says that the pitch has quickened in the latter half and feels that there has been a bit of dew on the track. But feels that the side winning the toss should back their strength.
Hello and welcome to the all important clash between Rajasthan and Hyderabad. Both sides will be eager to get their season going and close the gap on the fourth placed Kolkata. Steven Smith's Rajasthan have been a hit and miss so far but will look to build on their comprehensive win against Chennai in the last game. Warner's Hyderabad are on a free fall and are on a 3-game losing streak. They will be eager to bounce back from their Super Over heartbreak against Kolkata. Will Hyderabad join Rajasthan and Punjab with 8 points or will Rajasthan level on points and move ahead of Kolkata on net run rate?
