IPL 2018: Shikhar Dhawan Takes Time to Oblige Young Sunrisers Hyderabad Fans

After the SRH bowlers had restricted the visitors to 125 for nine in 20 overs, the hosts scored 127 for one to cross the line with 25 balls to spare. Kane Williamson, who was named the Sunrisers' captain just before the tournament, joined Shikhar Dhawan at the crease. But the swashbuckling batsman still manages to time find time for his fans and obliges them with autographs and selfies.Taking to Twitter, SRH posted a photo of Dhawan with his young fans as he signs autographs for them. Yusuf Pathan and Hales spent a lot of time in the nets, so their chances of being in the playing XI are very high.

The variety in Sunrisers Hyderabad's bowling attack will pose a few tricky questions for Mumbai Indians, when the two teams square off in a T20 encounter, here tomorrow.

MI, on the other hand, is filled with a galaxy of stars and are often known to be slow starters in a marathon league.

He is the flawless fit for your fantasy team! Stokes was Most Valuable Player of the Series previous year and is arguably the best all-rounder in the world. You can create your StarPick teamhere. However, both tried their best with leading the Score rate of DD as -.567 as well as RR as -1.771 as updated from the Latest IPL 2018 Points table by 11th April 2018. Now, Ajinkya Rahane is leading the Royals while Kane Williamson has been handed the Sunrisers captaincy. There can not be a better place to put the words into practice at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, which was once Rajasthan's fortress.

And, in batting, if Shikhar Dhawan fires at the top half the job is done for the home team even as his partner Wriddhiman Saha should be in the mood to make amends for his failure in the first game. He has proved to be extremely consistent with the bat over the past year or so and will hope to provide stability to SRH's middle-order this season.

Batting was not to perfection. But Daredevils head coach Ricky Ponting wouldn't be too perturbed as he believes that the "fresh group" of players have the potential to carry forward the team. He will look to make a mark for himself and get the selectors to take note of his performances. Yusuf Pathan and Manish Pandey will are flawless in the middle order while their bowling line-up is one of the deadliest this season. Also, with today's match played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur where Rajasthan has an overall record of winning nearly 72% of their matches will definitely start as favorites.

It would be no surprise if Jofra Archer came in for Ben Laughlin for this game as the fourth overseas player. He bowled his first two overs in the six-over Powerplay, conceding just 12 runs.
