RR will miss the services of Archer and Stokes

RR will be without talisman Jofra Archer, who won't take further part this season. Joining him is Ben Stokes. The two players will fly back to England ahead of the ODIs against Pakistan. The onus will be on the Indian bowlers to come strong.

SRH batting

SRH could see some changes in batting order

SRH will have to adjust without Jonny Bairstow, who had a terrific debut season in the IPL.

One expects Wriddhiman Saha to come in and perhaps share the opening role with in-form David Warner.

Kane Williamson is set to return and will be eyeing to score some runs after failing to strike this term.

Manish Pandey will look to provide the added comfort.

Khaleel Ahmed provides the cushion in bowling

Khaleel Ahmed has come in for SRH and so far he has done a commendable job. His variations and slower balls have bore the fruit. Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the main forces. SRH may replace Sandeep Sharma and get in Siddarth Kaul.
