SRH vs RR Dream 11 Top Picks

Jos Buttler

One of the finish wicket-keeper batters of his time, Jos Buttler can singlehandedly carry his team over the line with monstrous hitting skills. A great player of both pace and spin, his wide array of unconventional shots can ruin any bowlers’ line and length any day anywhere. The last time these two sides met each other, Buttler hit a stellar ton hammering the bowlers all around the park. The destructive Englishman surely will be keen for a flying start in IPL 2022.

Sanju Samson

Back in 2013, a promising prodigy from Kerala hogged all the limelight smashing bowlers with his classy strokes. After 9 years of experience in the world’s toughest T20 league, Samson is still a gamechanger for RR and has led the franchise in the past 2 seasons. His captaincy might have been a bit rusty, but the swashbuckling top-order batter remained a prolific run-scorer. In 121 games, Samson has amassed 3068 runs at a strike rate close to 135.

Nicholas Pooran

The 26-year-old flamboyant southpaw is the latest addition to the league of Caribbean T20 giants Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, and Andre Russell. Pooran however fell short of expectations last season and will eye to be a matchwinner for SRH this time. The Windies sensation was in smashing form when he back-to-back 3 fifties in the T20I series against India.
