Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and choose to Bowl first.

“We’ve opted to field first. The pitch looks promising and should hold up well throughout the game. We’re still adapting to the new impact player rule, but with the depth in our squad, we aim for consistent performance.”

Pat Cummins, SRH Skipper

“Everything’s been pretty solid so far. Sure, the last match didn’t go our way, but it was a tight contest. The team’s morale is high, which is crucial. Leadership isn’t new to me, so there’s no drastic change in approach. I aim to stay relaxed and perform at my peak. Indeed, we’re without Fizz, and Pathirana is dealing with a minor issue. Thus, Theekshana and Mukesh are stepping in.
