Notably, Sunil Narine and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are all set to open the innings against SRH in the next game. England star batter Phil Salt, was outstanding throughout the whole marquee event, and has left for his side in preparation for the T20 World Cup 2024. However, Sunil Narine seems to be in magnificent form and can do most of the damage in the power plays against SRH bowlers.

On the other hand, Gurbaz has been the most crucial player for his side and will be looking to give it a great start.

Batters: Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, and Ramandeep Singh

Venkatesh Iyer seems to be in great form this year and played a crucial role in his last game against MI. He will once again be looking to dominate against the SRH bowlers. However, Shreyas Iyer has failed to mark his impact with a bat, but he has a great chance to show his form in Qualifier 1. On the other hand, Rinku Singh and Ramandeep Singh are the two power hitters who will be looking to boost the middle order and lower order of the game.

All-rounders: Nitish Rana and Andre Russell
