Rajasthan vs Hyderabad in Indian T20 League

Here are two teams where both of them are looking to win their second Indian T20 Premier League title. While Rajasthan won the title in 2008, the inaugural season, Hyderabad won it in 2016. Rajasthan has seriously underperformed in most of the remaining seasons whereas Hyderabad has been pretty decent when it comes to consistency as they have qualified for the playoffs 5 times out of the 7 in which they have been part of. With both teams now having Aussie captains in the shape of Steven Smith (RR) and David Warner (Hyderabad), it would be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Rajasthan has made several changes to the squad with the likes of Robin Uthappa, Yashaswi Jaiswal, Andrew Tye, David Miller, Oshane Thomas and few more joining them to bolster the squad. On the other hand, Hyderabad did minimal business in the recently concluded auction as they did not release too many players. They just bought quality all-rounders Fabien Allen and Mitchell Marsh along with some young uncapped Indian players.

With one team settled and one team with a fresh look battling it out in the middle, it would be interesting to see if an experienced set of players can trump a team that is yet to gel fully.
