Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) thrashed Rajasthan Royals (RR) by seven wickets in the IPL on Monday night. For Hyderabad, opener Jason Roy has played a brilliant innings of 60 runs.
Apart from that, team captain Kane Williamson also batted brilliantly and scored an unbeaten 51 runs. Now the path to the playoffs has become very difficult for the Rajasthan team. Batting first against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Rajasthan Royals (RR) scored 164 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs in the Dubai International Stadium match. Rajasthan skipper Sanju Samson batted brilliantly and scored 82 off 57 balls, but Samson’s innings did not help the team win. Hyderabad had made a number of changes to the squad for the match and the team got the full benefit.
Although the Hyderabad team is almost out of the playoffs, the loss in this match has made it very difficult for Rajasthan to reach the playoffs. Rajasthan are currently sixth in the table with eight points. However, the Hyderabad team is almost out of the playoff race. Rajasthan will now have to win all their next matches to make it to the playoffs. But it will not be easy, as Rajasthan’s next match will be against Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are now back on the winning track.
