Kane Williamson’s cameo of 22 runs was also vital for Sunrisers posting a decent total on the board. Jofra Archer bowled well for the Royals having conceded only 25 runs and scalped the prized wicket of David Warner.
Fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed ran through the Rajasthan Royals top order. The game was in control of the Sunrisers Hyderabad until the late innings from Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag. Sanju Samson also chipped in with 26 runs. Rashid Khan delivered a good spell for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, conceding just 24 runs from his quota of four overs. He picked up two wickets as well.
However, Tewatia smacked three fours in one over of Rashid and that proved to be costly for SRH. Parag won the match with a big six at the end. Rajasthan Royals have now won three of the seven matches they have played. They will now face the Delhi Capitals in their next match. (IPL 2020)
