RR vs SRH: How to pick the winning Dream XI?
Rajasthan Royals face high-flying Sunrisers Hyderabad in match number 28 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. Both sides come from victories and have plenty at stake. A win would help RR be in the reckoning for top four as SRH can go top of the table. Fans playing the Dream XI would be eager to make the right choices. Here we guide you.
Dhawan gets the nod as skipper
An elbow injury has seen the player lose some form and he will be determined to get back to scoring ways. A big knock is due from the southpaw and he gets our nod as the captain. His strike partner Kane Williamson and the gritty Manish Pandey make the top order. The SRH trio could be amongst the runs and help gain maximum points.
RR's Samson, Rahane in there with Shakib as all-rounder
Sanju Samson has been the shining light for RR and he could once again tilt the game. His form makes him the vice-captain of the side. RR skipper Ajinkya Rahane finds a spot in this XI and could be crucial in giving his side the platform. Jos Buttler is the wicket-keeper. In-form Shakib Al Hasan is the lone all-rounder and can determine the tie.
Rashid leads four-man bowling attack
The Afghan youngster has been a revelation this season and Rashid's wicket-taking ability makes him a no-brainer in this team. Next in line is SRH pacer Siddarth Kaul. The bowler has done well and has been a trusted entity for Williamson. Jofra Archer was fresh and lively in the previous encounter and gets a chance once again. Shreyas Gopal fills up the last slot.Share this timeline
