IPL: Hyderabad beat Rajasthan to claim top spot

IPL 2018 Sun Risers Hyderabad Go Top Of Table With Win Over Rajasthan Royals

It was yet another instance where the bowlers rose to the occasion and did the job for skipper Kane Williamson after the batsmen put up a moderate total on the board.

While the 2016 champions will be keen to make hat-trick of wins, the host will eye for a ideal revenge against SRH, who defeated Rajasthan by 9 wickets in the side's opening fixture at Hyderabad.

Rajasthan have kept thing tight against SRH in the opening five overs.

Krishnappa Gowtham (8) could not recreate the magic he had managed against Mumbai Indians when he had blasted a 11-ball 33 to pull off a sensational win as Basil Thampi (/126 in 2 overs) did bowl an impressive final over.

However, Shikhar Dhawan and Wridhiman Saha have not given the required support to Hyderabad's batting.

Hyderabad beat Rajasthan to go top of the 2018 IPL standings on Sunday. On a day when Rahane became the first IPL opener with two unbeaten 50-plus scores in losing chases, it sure seems a tempting notion, especially if it leaves the likes of K Gowtham and Jofra Archer in the hut till it's too late. Rahane tried hard as well but the youngster was hard to get away as the Royals fell agonisingly short of the target by 11 runs. This has had a positive effect on the rest of the batting line-up, freeing up Sanju Samson at No. 3, and allowing Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler to bat at positions they are comfortable playing in.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen bring their dynamic relationship to the forefront in their new Google Duo commercial. Speaking to People magazine, she said: "I just kept going to bed and dreaming that it wasn't tasting right".

Earlier, it was a good toss to win for Williamson and he had no hesitation to bat first. The bowling unit will be led by Jaydev Unadkat, who will be ably supported by Shreyas Gopal, who is the leading wicket taker to RR with 5 wickets. Alex Hales struck two fours in it - one through point and the other through midwicket.

SRH, however, have struggled with the bat in their two previous contests, settling for low scores as some batsmen have shown lack of form, which also resulted in Deepak Hooda being dropped from their last game.

However, Hales and captain Williamson stitched a 92-run partnership from there to blunt the bowling attack of the Royals.

The match is scheduled to start at 4 P.M. IST on Sunday (April 29). The venue of this match at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
