Also, there will be competition to score the most sixes between the two teams. The same is going to be the return of Rajasthan Royals opener batsman Josh Butler from this match. With this, the Royals team will get even more strong. Josh Butler did not play in the first match due to isolation.
Because he arrived in UAE with his family separately. The same hero of the last match, Sanju Samson would like to continue his form. With the arrival of Josh Butler, the Royals team has started to look even stronger.
