    IPL 2021, RR vs SRH: Pandey gets in on the act

    Kartik Tyagi is given a third. He's been impressive so far. Averaging 142.7 kmph so far and has been very economical in his first game of IPL 2021.

    SIX! The commentator's curse, as they say. Full and wide, Manish Pandey stretches wide and still gets enough bat on it to deposit the ball over covers for six.

    SIX! As sweet as they come! That was more of statement. Not a terrible delivery at all, just back of a length. Pandey is strong on the on-side and he showed just why when he swatted the ball through deep mid-wicket for a six.

    SRH are 46/0 after 5 overs.

  • May 02, 2021 05:49 PM IST

    FOUR! How costly will this prove to be? So often do we see the bowler being hit for a boundary right after a dropped catch. On the up, Bairstow creams the wide delivery for four.

    SRH are 30/0 afer 4 overs.

  • May 02, 2021 05:44 PM IST

    BUTTLER OUT ON 124

    SIX! Deep in the crease, so he can get underneath the full delivery and smacks the ball hard and fast into the long-off stands.

    FOUR! Buttler in total control! Slow and short from Sandeep but dragged way outside off stump. Buttler reaches out for it and picks the gap with yet another tennis-like forehand for four.

    SIX AND NO-BALL! Rajasthan Royals cross the 200-run mark. Overcompensates this time. Goes full and short and Buttler obliges by thumping the ball for a six.

    SIX! Slow and wide, once again, Buttler reaches out and still generates enough power to the cut ball over deep backward point for a six. Just vintage Jos.

    OUT! BOWLED HIM! Buttler has to go for 124 off 64 balls. Full and wide, Buttler looks to cream the ball through covers but ends up chopping it onto his own stumps. What a knock!

    Tom Moody of SRH

    "Firstly he's (David Warner) not going to be playing in this game and that's purely a decision based on the combination. We've come to the conclusion that at this stage two overseas bat, an all-rounder and Rashid Khan is our best combination. We looked at it very closely. Obviously Bairstow's form and Williamson's form is at a great height and we are very thrilled with the way they are playing and we had to make a hard call and someone had to miss out and unfortunately for Davey on this occasion, it's him. He's been pretty good. Obviously been shocked and disappointed, you would be disappointed if wasn't feel that way like an elite sportsperson."

    IPL 2021 Live Score: Sanju Samson at the toss

    The last match we played here was a noon game as well and it's good to set a strong total. You only look for a good start in the powerplay and build up from there. Two changes: Unadkat is resting and Tyagi comes in. Anuj Rawat is making his debut in place of Shivam Dube. We just want to keep it simple and express ourselves, see the ball and react accordingly.

  • May 02, 2021 03:04 PM IST

    Kane Williamson at the toss

    We are going to have a bowl. After a few conversations with guys who have played here, we think it should be a consistent surface. Three changes: Nabi, Bhuvi, and Samad are back. Warner, Suchit, and Kaul miss out on this one. We know that as a group we need to come together and build on the positive parts. It has been difficult, but we need to pull together now. This captaincy change is very sudden, so I just need to pick up and make the small adjustments which hopefully will reflect on the result. The goal for the last half of the campaign is to improve our performances. There are many areas we need to improve, wickets in the powerplay is one. We have to do our best with our resources and it's important we adjust to the conditions.

    IPL 2021 Live Score: Pitch report

    We're on the center pitch, and there was another day game here where 171 was scored and it wasn't enough. Even though it is a used pitch, there is a covering of grass. In between and amongst that there are some worn patches that will allow the seamers to grip, or if it hits the grass it would slide. From the other end, the spinners too will get a lot of grip.
