Team Changes
SRH: Vijay Shankar comes in for Abdul Samad.
RR: Stokes is back. Riyan Parag and Uthappa are back. The three have replaced Andrew Tye, Yashashwi Jaiswal and Mahipal Lomror.
Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler (wk), Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith (captain), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Kartik Tyagi, Varun Aaron

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (captain), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan

We can hopefully rectify a few things today. We want to compete today. Looks like a used wicket, could slow down. We’ll have to take some early wickets – Look he trained well and he’s in today (Stokes). Two other changes as well. Stokes, Riyan Parag and Robin Uthappa are back. We’ll need to keep moving forward, we have a good team and we need to compete.
We’ll bat first. It’s a nice wicket, we will need to make most of the powerplay overs, hopefully, things will go on nicely today. We have a lot of young legs in our team, the seniors take full responsibility. We are taking each game as it comes – Vijay Shankar in and Samad misses out.

Here’s what captain Steve Smith said ahead of the SRH vs RR clash:

Will Ben Stokes play today?
