Captains View 

Steve Smith | RR skipper- 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.

David Warner | SRH skipper- 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.
