Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieran Pollard, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Smith’s RR has lost the last couple of games and will look to change its momentum on a winning course. RR has won only in the small Sharjah stadium while losing on the other 2 larger grounds. Their batsman needs to come out really well for RR to have a shift in momentum.
Possible – 11
Jos Buttler (wk), Yashasvi Jaiswal/Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith (C), Riyan Parag. Mahipal Lomror, Tom Curran, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat/Varun Aaron.
