Rajasthan Royals‘ confidence is high after thumping IPL 2013 winners Mumbai Indians. Rajasthan would be hoping to consolidate their position when they take on Lions in a group A league match of the Champions League Twenty20 tournament. The Rajasthan have made the Sawai Mansingh stadium their citadel, winning nine consecutive matches from IPL 2013.

‘The wicket here suits us because we have the batsmen who are good shotmakers, bowlers too know the right areas to bowl on it,’ Rajasthan skipper Rahul Dravid had said recently.

Having put behind the spot-fixing controversy that hounded them in T20-League 6, the hosts have gained in confidence which makes them slight favourites against the South African outfit.

Lions, the finalists from the last edition, will be looking to open their winning account after their first game against the Perth Scorchers.

Teams:    

Rajasthan Royals: Rahul Dravid(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson(wk), Shane Watson, Stuart Binny, Brad Hodge, Ashok Menaria, James Faulkner, Kevon Cooper, Vikramjeet Malik, Pravin Tambe.

Highveld Lions: Quinton de Kock(wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Alviro Petersen(c), Thami Tsolekile, Temba Bavuma, Jean Symes, Dwaine Pretorius, Sohail Tanvir, Hardus Viljoen, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
