4.6 overs (1 Run) In the air... safe! Did the fielder decided to go for the catch a bit late? Floated around off, Buttler comes down the track and looks to go over long on. He fails to get to the pitch of the ball and hits it high in the air towards long on.
4.5 overs (0 Run) Buttler tries for the reverse sweep again. Connects but finds the fielder.
4.4 overs (0 Run) Huge appeal but turned down. Floated around off and middle, Buttler looks to reverse sweep. Misses to get hit on the pad. An appeal but not out says the umpire. Hyderabad does not have a review left.
4.3 overs (1 Run) Dropped short and around middle, pulled to deep mid-wicket for a single.
4.2 overs (1 Run) Floated on middle, pushed down to long on for one.
4.1 overs (1 Run) Samson makes room and Sanju follows him. Sanju tries to flick but misses to get hit on the pad. The ball goes to leg side and they take a leg bye.
3.6 overs (0 Run) Beats on the last ball. Angles this one from around middle from a good length. Buttler looks to punch the drive but fails to connect. Lucky not to edge it behind.
3.5 overs (0 Run) Shortish and around middle, kept out.
3.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Excellent effort in the deep from Rashid but it is not good enough to save the boundary. Poor ball from Khaleel and Buttler slammed it wide of deep cover. Rahid ran to his left, covered a lot of ground. He put in a dive and tried to flick the ball in but the ball just stuck in his hand. So, this will be a boundary.
3.3 overs (1 Run) Short again, Sanju goes for the pull again but this time he mistiems it to deep mid-wicket. A single.
3.2 overs (6 Runs) SIX! WOW! Samson, the skipper, is off the mark with a biggie on the first ball. What a way! This is unbelievable. This is some way to announce yourself. A length ball, a bit short and around middle, Samson tonks it over wide long on for a biggie.
3.1 overs (1 Run) Length ball outside off, slapped to deep cover for one.
2.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! LBW! Plumb this time! It is Rashid who wins the battle, eventually. Jaiswal has to go. The ploy to bring Rashid works for Williamson here. This one is quicker through the air and around off and middle, Jaiswal stays back and tries to flick but misses to put any bat on this square one. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger this time. Jaiswal has a chat with his senior partner at the other end. They do not go for the review. Rashid has got the breakthrough. Replays later show that it would've hit the middle pole. So, a good call not to review.
The skipper, Sanju Samson makes his way out now. Also, Khaleel Ahmed is introduced into the attack.
2.5 overs (0 Run) Very full and around off, drilled to the cover fiedler.
2.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Crunched! Jaiswal is taking Rashid on here. He attacked him from the start and he is winning the battle so far. A flatter ball, this one is just outside off, Jaiswal waits on the back foot and crunches it through covers.
2.3 overs (4 Runs) FOUR LEG BYES! This is on the pads, Jaiswal looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pad. The ball then goes past the keeper and to the fine leg fence.
2.2 overs (0 Run) NOT OUT! Missing the stumps! So, Hyderabad lose their review very early. Fuller ball, this one is around off. Jaiswal once again tries to play the sweep but this time he misses to make any connection and gets hit on the pad. A big appeal but given not out. Kane signals for the review. Ultra Edge shows no bat. Ball Tracker shows it is missing the stumps. Jaiswal is safe.
2.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! And Jaiswal welcomes him with a boundary. Rashid floats thie one on middle, Jaiswal gets down and sweeps it over backward square leg for a boundary.
Early review! It has struck Yashasvi Jaiswal on the pad and Kane Williamson makes the 'T' symbol. Ultra Edge shows no bat. Ball Tracker shows that the wickets are missing and Hyderabad lose a review.
Interesting. Spin very early on and it is their champ, Rashid Khan who will have a go now.
1.6 overs (0 Run) Dot to end from Sandeep. Excellent follow-up over from him. Good length and around off, pushed to mid on by Buttler.
1.5 overs (1 Run) Fuller and wide outside off, it is hit over cover. The deep cover fielder gets around and keeps it to a single.
1.4 overs (0 Run) Good length and just outside off, punched to cover fielder this time. Good over so from from Sandeep too.
1.3 overs (0 Run) Full and around off, pushed to mid off.
1.2 overs (2 Runs) On the pads this time, it is flicked wide of mid-wicket where Shankar misfields and allows two.
1.1 overs (0 Run) Good length ball around off to begin from Sandeep. Jaiswal punches it to mid off.
0.6 over (0 Run) Yes, he can! Just 2 from the opening over. A length ball around off, Buttler pushes it towards cover.
Who will bowl from the other end? It is Sandeep Sharma!
0.5 over (1 Run) A bit too straight and Jaiswal is happy to work it towards mid-wicket to open his account. Top over from Bhuvneshwar so far. Can he end it well?
0.4 over (0 Run) Excellent line and length against the left-hander too from Kumar. This one is just around off on a length. Jaiswal blocks.
0.3 over (1 Run) Quick single and Buttler is underway! A length ball on the pads, he tucks it to the right side of the mid on fielder for a single.
0.2 over (0 Run) Fuller this time and just around off, Buttler pushes it to mid off.
0.1 over (0 Run) Bhuvneshwar is on the money straightaway! A length ball, around off, Buttler taps it towards cover off the back foot.
Right! It is time for the action. The Hyderabad players take the field following the two umpires. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal will open the innings for Rajasthan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will open the bowling for Hyderabad. Here we go...
Rajasthan (Playing XI) - Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (WK/C), Anuj Rawat (In for Shivam Dube), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Kartik Tyagi (In for Jaydev Unadkat), Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.
Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan skipper, tells that the wicket is really good. Tells that they will have to start well in the Powerplay and then build on the innings. Feels that anything around 190-210 can be a good total. Informs that they have two changes. Kartik Tyagi replaces Jaydev Unadkat who is resting and Shivam Dube sits out for Anuj Rawat who makes his debut for them.
Hyderabad (Playing XI) - Jonny Bairstow (WK), Kane Williamson (C), Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi (In for David Warner), Rashid Khan, Abdul Samad (In for Jagadeesha Suchith), Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (In for Siddarth Kaul).
Kane Williamson, the new Hyderabad skipper, says that they will bowl first, and after a few conversations with people who have played here, they feel that this is a good decision and they think that this is a good surface. Informs that they have 3 changes as Samad, Nabi, and Bhuvi are back and Warner, Kaul, and Suchith miss out. Feels that they know as a group, that they have to come together and it has been tough, but it is important to try and make those few improvements. Says that the change is sudden and so, he will look to be better as a group and he knows that there is a lot of work to do. Tells that wickets in the Powerplay will be handy, but as a group, they will try to operate with the resources that they have.
TOSS - It is time for the flip of the coin. Rajasthan skipper Sanju Samson and the new skipper for Hyderabad Kane Williamson are out in the middle for the toss. Up it goes and it lands in favor of Williamson. Hyderabad will BOWL FIRST.
Ajit Agarkar inspects the pitch from distance. He says that there is a nice and even covering of grass. Tells that if the batsman can get it, they can play big shots. Adds that at one of the ends, there are rough patches and someone like Rashid can use that to their advantage. Ends by saying that it still is a belter of a wicket.
Tom Moody, the Hyderabad coach is in for a chat! Warner will not be playing in today's game, says Tom Moody first-up, and they have come to the conclusion that this was a choice they had to make. Further adds that they were ecstatic to see Williamson and Bairstow in such good shape, and they had to make a difficult decision. States that Warner was surprised and frustrated, but he has accepted the reasoning and rallied behind the team.
Breaking news out of the Hyderabad camp! It has been confirmed that David Warner will not be in the playing XI for Hyderabad for today's game. Will it be Jason Roy who will be replacing him? We will find out.
