PITCH REPORT - Deepdas Gupta is pitchside. DDS reckons that there is a lot of green on the pitch and it is quite firm as well. He adds that the square boundaries are not that long but it's a 75 m hit down the ground. There will be help for the seamers early on but later on the wind and the dew might play an important role.
Rajashthan skipper Sanju Samson says that it's a special day for them as a total of 7 players make their debut. Adds that their four overseas players are Jos Buttler, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult and Shimron Hetmyer. Adds that they have played games here in the past and even though it has a green tinge, it will have something in it for everyone.
Kane Williamson captain of Hyderabad says that they will have a bowl first. He adds that the pitch looks good and there might be dew later on. Mentions that most of the guys have had plenty of time together to get ready for this clash and they are pumped.
Rajasthan (Playing XI) - Jos Buttler (WK), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (C), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna.
Hyderabad (Playing XI) - Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (C), Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (WK), Abdul Samad, Romario Shepherd, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
TOSS - The coin goes up and lands in favour of Kane Williamson. Hyderabad have opted to BOWL first.
Rajashthan have become a team that shows a lot of promise but fails to deliver when it matters the most. This time they have brought in experienced Indian spinners such as Ashwin and Chahal to give them stability. If their explosive top order performs consistently, Rajasthan can just turn out to be the dark horses in the competition and give everyone a run for their money. So, which side will be able to start the season in winning fashion? We'll find out soon. Toss and team news in a bit.
Hyderabad are generally a team known for their gritty character and being able to do more with less but last season was a forgetful one for them and losing the likes of Bairstow, Warner and especially Rashid Khan will certainly hurt them. But maybe the replacements brought in will step up and they always boast a strong young Indian line-up which will be the theme this season as well.
Hello and a warm welcome to Match number 5 of the Indian T20 League and it's the first match this season to be held at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. The two remaining teams yet to play their first match will take on eachother as Hyderabad face Rajasthan. Two teams who will be looking to get out of the blocks quickly and get moving on the points table at the earliest as both failed to qualify for the playoffs in the last outing.
