Delhi will start as favourites against Rajasthan but unlike their first match if the likes of in-form D'Arcy Short, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler or Ben Laughlin fire on the morrow, it could well be Rajasthan's field day at home as all the players have reputation of turning the game around. Cutting, who recently retired from First-Class cricket, will add to the team's batting and bowling depth. However, Rahane believes Rajasthan have enough big names in the side to help revive their fortunes. The Sunrisers have a much better balance to their squad.
However, It will be interesting to see which team begins the new season of Indian Premier League season with a WIN.
The hosts have the resources with experienced overseas players and local talent under a calm and cool Rahane but they need to get their act together.
Joining Kane Williamson as worldwide signings are all-rounders Carlos Brathwaite, Shakhib Al Hasan and Mohmmad Nabi, bowlers Billy Stanlake, Rashid Khan and Chris Jordan and Alex Hales is the only other key batsman on the roster.

"We would be looking to improving on what we did last night and put up a performance the fans will be proud of".
Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan also had a very good game, and gave the opposition just 23 runs and took a wicket in his four overs. The former will be hoping to bounce back after witnessing in the first match itself how it feels when victory is snatched from the jaws of defeat like Chennai Super Kings did. Sandeep Sharma is another successful bowler who has been great for Punjab over the years. Then spin twins Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan applied the brakes in the middle overs, finishing with combined figures of 3 for 46 off eight overs to derail Royals.
