Dubai. Sunrisers Hyderabad registered their second win of the season by defeating Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in an Indian Premier League match here on Monday. Jason Roy contributed the highest 60 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Rajasthan Royals scored 164 for five while batting first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Monday on the back of captain Sanju Samson’s brilliant innings of 82 runs. Samson scored 82 runs in his 57-ball innings with the help of seven fours and three sixes. He found good support from young openers Yashasvi Jaiswal (36 off 23 balls) and Mahipal Lomror (29 not out off 28 balls).
Samson and Lomror added 84 runs for the fourth wicket. Went to bat after winning the toss, Evin Lewis (six) and Yashasvi Jaiswal hit a four each in the first over of Sandeep Sharma (1 for 30) but experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar (one wicket for 28 runs) did the second over. Lewis was sent to the pavilion on the first ball. It was his over maiden. Jaiswal, however, did not have much effect and he sent Sandeep and then Bhuvneshwar across the boundary. Samson at the other end continued the momentum of the previous match. He hit two fours in the sixth over of Siddharth Kaul (2 for 36). Due to this the team’s score in the power play became 49 runs for one wicket. Jaiswal hit a six on Sandeep Sharma who came to bowl in the ninth over but got bowled on the very next ball. He hit a six and five fours in his 23-ball innings and shared a 56-run stand for the second wicket with Samson. The poor run of Liam Livingstone (four runs) continued in this match as well, who was caught by Rashid Khan (1 for 31) to Samad.
In the 14th over of the innings, Mahipal Lomror hit a six against Jason Holder (27 runs without success) to take the team’s score to 100 runs. After that, however, he struggled to hit the big shot. Samson then welcomed Rashid for a six in the 15th over. He hit two sixes in the same over after completing his fifty in 42 balls by hitting a four over mid-off against Siddharth Kaul on the first ball of the next over. Meanwhile, in the 18th over, Sandeep dropped a simple catch of Lomror off Holder’s ball. Bhuvneshwar then spent just seven runs in the 19th over. After dismissing Samson in the last over, Siddharth sent Riyan Parag to the pavilion without opening the account. Only four runs came from this over. Hyderabad bowlers conceded just 11 runs in the last two overs as Rajasthan failed to put up a bigger total.
