In the next fixture of the Indian T20 League, Rajasthan is taking on Hyderabad. Both teams are at the lower half of the points table and are very close to each other to make it to the playoffs. Rajasthan is coming off a convincing win in Abu Dhabi against Chennai and is sitting in the sixth position in the points table with eight points in 10 games.
Their attempt to open with Uthappa and drive down the order with Jos Buttler had succeeded so far. We expect Rajasthan to move on the field with Jofra Archer leading the bowling attack, the same combination. It is a do or die situation for the team, and a victory would keep them on track of contention for the spot for the playoffs.
On the other hand, in a Super over the match, Hyderabad ended up losing to Kolkata and desperately needed to win to stay up on the ladder. There is an injury question about Kane Williamson that could contribute to Nabi’s selection in the XI. To lead the middle order in the correct direction, Manish Pandey needs to get back on track. Their problem with the novice middle order is clearly expressed in the table of points. Their bowling attack, however, is still sufficient for these circumstances and can be the best part of getting the two points from Dubai.
As usual, the weather in Dubai will be clear, without any cloud cover in the sky. The temperature will be about 30 degrees Celsius with no chance of rain.
In both innings, the pitch at the Dubai International Stadium will be in favour of the batsmen. To get the desired results on this floor, the bowlers will have to put in some extra effort.
