The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will face the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Match No.5 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. This will be a night game and will begin at 7:30 PM IST. Both SRH and RR had poor campaigns last season. While the Royals finished in seventh place, winning only five out of their 14 games, the Sunrisers were last as they won only three of their 14 games in IPL 2021.

Following the mega auction though both teams will come into the 2022 season with revamped squads although their skippers remain the same. SRH will be led by Kane Williamson, who was named captain midway through last season, replacing David Warner. On the other hand, RR will be captained by Sanju Samson. He was in the news for bizarre reasons recently. Media reports claimed that he had complained to the RR management over the social media team making fun of him. Later, RR claimed it was a prank, which was rather embarrassing.

SRH are likely to open with Rahul Tripathi and Abhishek Sharma. Tripathi was purchased at the auction while Sharma was bought back. Nicholas Pooran had a season for Punjab last year but he has been in great form and will be looking to start afresh horror. Aiden Markram and T Natarajan will be key members of the team while Umran Malik will provide the X factor.

SRH predicted XI: Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan

RR should retain last year’s opening pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler. They can be destructive together. It would be interesting to see where Devdutt Padikkal bats. The dangerous Shimron Hetmyer has also moved over from Delhi to RR. In the bowling, they have Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal as well as Prasidh Krishna.

RR predicted XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler (wk), Sanju Samson (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, James Neesham, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna

Top fantasy picks for SRH vs RR clash: Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson, Umran Malik, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer
