However, there was no significant hit of Williamson missing the match. He shared a post with Rashid Khan on his social media platforms. Moreover, the SRH social media team posted a picture of a Kiwi skipper bowling in the nets.

David Warner won the toss against Rajasthan Royals and opted to bowl first. After the toss, Warner said, “We are gonna bowl. I don’t think too much is going to change. The last game here, it held up a bit more in the first half of the game. It came on quite nice in the back end. We just have to wait and see. It’s alright, we get another game today (when he was told that his team haven’t been successful while chasing).”

About the injury of Williamson, Warner said, “He’s (KW) done something to his quad, that’s unfortunate” He further informed, “We have the big man Holder coming in. Nadeem is in for Thampi. It’s been tough not to include him (Holder) in the team before. We backed our strengths – top-heavy, tried to defend as much as we could. But things have changed and we have to try something else. I am always nice and calm. After a couple of losses, I was a bit edgy, now have had time to relax and gather my thoughts. It’s quite difficult in the bubble. For us, it’s about coming out and putting our best foot forward.”
