Both Rajasthan and Hyderabad will begin life without their key overseas players when they face-off in the Indian Premier League on Saturday.
At this stage, Rajasthan are more affected than Hyderabad with the absence of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer, who have left for England to join the World Cup camp.
Hyderabad will surely miss the services of their destructive opener Jonny Bairstow, who formed the most potent opening pairing alongside David Warner.
