SRH is a team who lost their last match and RCB won their last match. SRH made some mistake in their last match sending Abdul Samad so low down the order was one of them. When a player of such hitting power and capability is in your team you would certainly want to use him. And the other decision they have to make is that whether to include Kane Williamson in the playing XI or not even if they want to it’s going to be very hard looking at Bairstow’s form. And Manish Pandey would also be itching to go and shrug off the criticism which he received after the last inning.
Whereas RCB have matchfit Devdutt Padikkal ready to go and he would be included straight into the playing XI and that should strengthen their batting lineup even more and with a inform bowling lineup they should be able to win more games than usual.This is also quite an important game for Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been looking off-colour for a while now. The legspinner would want to get some rhythm before embarking on tougher challenges in Mumbai and Kolkata later in the tournament.
SRH’s Probable XI: Johny Bairstow,David Warner,Manish Pandey,Wriddhiman Saha,Abdul Samad,Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi,Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshvar Kumar,Sandeep Sharma,T Natarajan
