How do the teams stack up?

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

The team took a big hit by losing Warner before the series and now have the likes of Alex Hales replacing his batting strength that worked like a Superman for the last season. They will surely miss him but Dhawan looks in top form and he is likely to be a big influencer of the season. He will always be my captain when making my fantasy team.

Probable XI: Kane Williamson (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Alex Hales, Basil Thampi

Players to watch out for: Dhawan & Hales

Rajasthan Royals:

One time Champion of the first season haven’t got even close to the title ever since. They are definitely the underdogs but they are comfortable with that. They have stolen victory and given away a match when two baby steps away from victory in the past. Expect a lot of drama around our good old RR.

Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane (C), D’Arcy Short, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Stuart Binny, Ben Laughlin, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat

Players to watch out for: K Gowtham & Tripathi

Punters Heavy On: Sunrisers Hyderabad
