IPLT20: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeat Rajasthan Royals by 9 wickets

The Rajasthan Royals take on the Delhi Daredevils at Jaipur in Game 6 of IPL 2018.

The result: Sunrisers Hyderabad 1-127 (Dhawan 77no, Unadkat 1-28) defeated Rajasthan Royals 9-125 (Samson 49, Kaul 2-17) by nine wickets.

While Delhi put up a considerable fight in their match, the same can not be said for Rajasthan.

Rahane used seven bowlers against them but left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat (1-28) picked up the solitary wicket of Wriddhiman Saha.

It is unlikely that Royals will make any changes to their line-up after losing only a single game as they had fielded their best available XI in the last match.

England's wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler is one of the cleanest strikers of the ball in world cricket.

There are two ways you can look at Rajasthan's heavy defeat at the hands of Hyderabad.

The run out of D'Arcy short at the end of the first over was a bonus for the Sunrisers but the Royals would rebuild through Ajinkya Rahane (13) and eventual top-scorer for the Royals Sanju Samson. However, this is not sufficient grounds to drop him - especially because his bowling showed promise. While Dhawan has been in sensational form, SRH will need Williamson to get out of the slump that he is in if they are to have a solid season this time around. The bowling attack needs to perform to its potential though as they looked toothless the other night. While the move effectively rules out a Test recall, he said that part of the motivation behind his decision was to send the right message to franchises around the world.

This left Jos Buttler needing to fix some late damage to haul them close to 150. Rashid Khan is another top pick, but I have chose to ignore him for now given his cost and other more important players to tend to. They have a balanced team.

"It is not the 200 run kind of wicket but 160-170 would be achievable because ball would come nicely on to the bat".

Their overseas bowling aside, Siddarth Kaul exhibited Sunrisers' local fast-bowling depth. Admittedly he is something of a bowling all-rounder, with his main asset being his off-break bowling. For example, dropping catches of Shikhar Dhawan. On a spicy Hyderabad surface, Shakib was introduced as early as in the fourth over, and conceded just 12 runs in the two overs he bowled in the Powerplay. There is, however, a touch of dryness to the surface that should bring the spinners into play.
