Both Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will begin life without their key overseas players when they face-off in the Indian Premier League on Saturday.
At this stage, Royals are more affected than Sunrisers with the absence of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer, who have left for England to join the World Cup camp.
Sunrisers will surely miss the services of their destructive opener and Englishman Jonny Bairstow, who formed the most potent opening pairing alongside David Warner.
Things will get tougher for both teams after the departure of Australians -- Warner and Royals skipper Steve Smith -- next week.
Sunrisers are placed better than Royals on the points table, having won five out of their 10 games. Royals have only won four of their 11 games but they too remain in the hunt for a play-off spot.
What to expect?
It is expected to be hot out there but dew again will play a part later in the eveing. An even surface is expected but the chasing side will benefit because of the dew factor.
Probable Playing XI:
SRH: Kane Williamson (C), David Warner, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Shakib Al Hasan, Shreevats Goswami/Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Deepak Hooda/Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma/Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed.
