Right! It is time for the action. The Hyderabad players take the field following the two umpires. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal will open the innings for Rajasthan. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will open the bowling for Hyderabad. Here we go…
Rajasthan (Playing XI) – Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (WK/C), Anuj Rawat (In for Shivam Dube), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Kartik Tyagi (In for Jaydev Unadkat), Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.
Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan skipper, tells that the wicket is really good. Tells that they will have to start well in the Powerplay and then build on the innings. Feels that anything around 190-210 can be a good total. Informs that they have two changes. Kartik Tyagi replaces Jaydev Unadkat who is resting and Shivam Dube sits out for Anuj Rawat who makes his debut for them.
Hyderabad (Playing XI) – Jonny Bairstow (WK), Kane Williamson (C), Manish Pandey, Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi (In for David Warner), Rashid Khan, Abdul Samad (In for Jagadeesha Suchith), Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (In for Siddarth Kaul).
Kane Williamson, the new Hyderabad skipper, says that they will bowl first, and after a few conversations with people who have played here, they feel that this is a good decision and they think that this is a good surface. Informs that they have 3 changes as Samad, Nabi, and Bhuvi are back and Warner, Kaul, and Suchith miss out. Feels that they know as a group, that they have to come together and it has been tough, but it is important to try and make those few improvements. Says that the change is sudden and so, he will look to be better as a group and he knows that there is a lot of work to do. Tells that wickets in the Powerplay will be handy, but as a group, they will try to operate with the resources that they have.
TOSS – It is time for the flip of the coin. Rajasthan skipper Sanju Samson and the new skipper for Hyderabad Kane Williamson are out in the middle for the toss. Up it goes and it lands in favor of Williamson. Hyderabad will BOWL FIRST.
Ajit Agarkar inspects the pitch from distance. He says that there is a nice and even covering of grass. Tells that if the batsman can get it, they can play big shots. Adds that at one of the ends, there are rough patches and someone like Rashid can use that to their advantage. Ends by saying that it still is a belter of a wicket.
Tom Moody, the Hyderabad coach is in for a chat! Warner will not be playing in today’s game, says Tom Moody first-up, and they have come to the conclusion that this was a choice they had to make.

States that Warner was surprised and frustrated, but he has accepted the reasoning and rallied behind the team.
