Analysis: Rahul-Agarwal is an absolutely terrific opening duo any IPL franchise has ever got. They have Maxwell, Nicholas in their mid-overs who are known to be the hard-hitter of the bowl. Ending with Jordan can designate a might score or run chase. They might collide in the bowling line-up as they have Cottrell and Shami who can bring consistency.
SRH, who lacks a bit in their bowling depart despite having Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, will be trying to cover their lacking with the bat as they have the best opening duo of Warner and Bairstow. Also, Williamson from New Zealand can steal the show as earlier mentioned, the Orange Army won their only game played yet of the season upon his arrival. However, Mohammad Nabi might help a bit in all-rounding techniques.
