SRH vs RR: The Sunrisers are in with a new captain and they also have some interesting new players with Harry Brook among players who can add a lot of value to the batting line-up. The impact player rule further makes a huge difference to them with fewer all-rounders on their side. Stubbs and Markram though are out for the first game with national duty.
Last year’s finalists Rajasthan Royals gather once more with more strength in their all-around ability. The upcoming tournament is particularly important for Sanju Samson, who continues to be in and out of the Indian side despite consistently performing in the IPL.

SRH vs RR Key Players
Harry Brook is in great form across formats and was one of the buys of the tournament. His arrival at the IPL brings a lot of excitement and it will be interesting to see how he goes in India.
With three centuries and over 800 runs last season, Jos Buttler was in a league of his own. His form remains solid and the distance he goes this season will be interesting to see, given how he was nearly unstoppable with his batting last season.
