IPLT20: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeat Rajasthan Royals by 9 wickets

Hyderabad (Telangana): In the fourth match of Indian Premier League, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) comfortably defeated Rajasthan Royals with 9 wickets to spare, here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Monday.

Shikhar Dhawan led the SRH to victory with his unbeaten 77, which included 13 fours and 1 six. He was well supported by skipper Kane Williamson, who also remained not out on 36.

Chasing a low target of 126, the SRH did not get a desired start as Wriddhiman Saha was dismissed by Jaydev Unadkat in the second over. However, Dhawan made his intentions clear from the get go.

To stop Dhawan’s juggernaut, RR’s captain Ajinkya Rahane used seven different bowlers, but to no avail the southpaw and the New Zealander chased the target in 15.5 overs with 25 balls to spare.

Earlier, a disciplined bowling by the SRH limited the RR to 125/9 in their 20 overs. Siddarth Kaul stood out with his stellar performance -2/17 in his four overs. (ANI)
