It’s another double-header Sunday, and in the first game of the day, Hyderabad is taking on Rajasthan. They are coming off a comfortable win against Punjab, where a match-winning partnership set the game for their opening pair. With three wins, Hyderabad has six points in their pocket. Their bowling was the most vital aspect of their game plan. Their batting relies on the top four a lot. They will, therefore, expect them to perform again and get Dubai’s two points.
On the other hand, Rajasthan is currently in the seventh position in the points table. With two wins in Sharjah, they had a strong start. But they were not able to build on their winning momentum and ultimately sustained four consecutive defeats. The main reason behind the decline in winning style is the successive failures of the top batting stars. Their bowling in Sharjah was perfect, limiting Delhi to under 200. They will hope to turn their luck around and get back to winning ways on Sunday with Ben Stokes coming back to the squad after his quarantine.
Dubai will have the sun shining brilliantly in the sky on Sunday, with no cloud cover whatsoever, and temperatures ranging between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius.
This season, the pitch in Dubai has seen many teams with the best of their team batsmen, struggling to chase down modest totals set for them. So, it would be right to say that the bowlers in the second innings would decide the fate of their teams in this match.
