While Sunrisers Hyderabad look revamped for today’s fixture, Rajasthan Royals fan are sad to see Kartik Tyagi out of the game. At this stage, in such an important game, playing without Kartik Tyagi is definitely not a good news for Rajasthan Royals.
The match between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals is easily one of the closes games in the history on Indian Premier League. The Royals could beat the Kings by 2 runs only because of the brilliant bowling by Tyagi in the last over. Tyagi has also maintained his consistency. However, his injury is keeping him out of the combination in the 40th match of IPL 2021 according to the RR skipper Sanju Samson.
Sanju Samson who won the toss and decide to bat first, said, “We are looking to bat first. Team combo, atmosphere suits us to bat first. We learn from the loss in the last game. We are having fitness issues. Kartik Tyagi is out with injury. Morris and Lewis return in place of Miller and Shamsi.”
Regarding team changes, Kane Williamson the SRH skipper said, “Jason Roy is at the top for David Warner. Pandey, Kedar miss out. Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma are playing. Sid Kaul replaces injured Khaleel. Today there is something fresh. There are a lot of changes. So it is important that the youngsters come in and stick to their strengths. As a unit we do want to be putting performances together. That is the focus for us even though we are sort of no longer in the comp. We want to play the kind of cricket we are proud of.”
