This article lists the Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rising Pune Supergiant Probable XI. Fighting for a place in the top 4, SRH and RPS will clash for their second leg fixture of the season at Hyderabad on Saturday.
The last time these two teams faced each other, MS Dhoni unleashed his hard-hitting capabilities to take RPS to a win that seemed improbable at one point in the game.
Even though Yuvraj Singh scored an excellent half-century, a combined batting effort got Delhi home in SRH’s previous game. They have 13 points in 11 games and have to win the three games to be sure of not getting eliminated. David Warner has been in talismanic form this season with the Orange Cap to his name so far. There have been useful contributions from Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh. Rashid Khan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar have been a decimating bowling duo and Warner will be expecting a win from this game.
RPS have been unstoppable in their last few games. While Stokes became the second RPS batsman to score an IPL hundred against Gujarat Lions, youngster Rahul Tripathi scored a match-winning 93 against KKR. They have 7 wins in 11 games and 2 more wins will earn them a play-offs berth with ease. Stokes and Christian have formed a formidable duo handling both batting and bowling and RPS seem to have finally found the right combination to play with.
Here is the probable XI that the two teams might go with on Saturday.
