Rising Pune Supergiants captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to field first against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad will aim to continue their winning streak when they face Rising Pune Supergiants in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Hyderabad had a poor start to their campaign, losing the first two matches. But they have staged a fine recovery by winning three matches on the trot, which has taken them to the fourth spot.

Pune, on the other hand, seem to have lost their way a bit. They started off in promising fashion with a commanding nine-wicket win over defending champions Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2016 opener. But they have struggled to find the right combination since and have lost four consecutive matches, leaving them second from the bottom in the table with just two points.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: D Warner, S Dhawan, M Henriques, A Tare, N Ojha, D Hooda, E Morgan, B Sharma, B Kumar, A Nehra, Mustafizur Rahman.

Rising Pune Supergiants: F du Plessis, A Rahane, S Smith, S Tiwary, MS Dhoni, M Marsh, T Perera, R Bhatia, R Ashwin, A Dinda, M Ashwin
