Sunrisers Hyderabad asserted their dominance as a brilliant defending team with yet another successful defence of a moderate target. Chasing 152 in 20 overs, the Rajasthan Royals would have rarely thought that they couldn’t make it at their home ground. But some disciplined bowling performances from the likes of Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Shakib Al Hasan meant Rajasthan were restricted 11 runs short of the target. After Rahul Tripathi’s early dismissal, Ajinkya Rahane (65) and Sanju Samson (40) posted a good partnership of 59 runs before Siddarth Kaul got Samson in the 10th over of the game. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler both failed to control the chase leaving Rahane fighting lonely alongside a young Lomror who succumbed to pressure towards the end of the game. With 21 to defend in the final over, Thampi conceded just 9 and also picked Krishnappa Gowtham’s wicket to take SRH on top of the IPL table with 12 points from 8 games.
