IPL 2019, SRH vs RR Highlights: Sanju Samson’s second IPL ton was overshadowed by David Warner’s blistering fifty as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Rajasthan Royals by five wickets to register their first win in the ongoing edition of the tournament on Friday.
Samson’s first century of the ongoing IPL went in vain, as chasing a mammoth 199-run target, Warner set up the platform for Sunrisers with a breezy 69 off 37 balls and together with Jonny Bairstow (45 off 28) added a century stand for the opening wicket to spoil Rajasthan’s day.

SIXXXXX! And SRH win by 5 wickets. Sensational finish by Rashid Khan as Hyderabad win with 1 over to spare. The successful chase of 199 is the second highest chase ever by SRH. Simply outstanding!
SRH edge closer
Sunrisers are edging towards a win despite Shreyas Gopal's brilliant spell. SRH- 185/5, Hyderabad need 12 runs in 12 balls
2 in 2
2 wickets in 2 balls for Shreyas Gopal. Is this the game-changing moment? Vijay Shankar and Manish Pandey depart to leave SRH at- 167/5. Hyderabad need 32 runs in 26 balls
OUT! Jaydev Unadkat, who had bowled just 1 over before this, has picked up the big wicket of Kane Williamson. SRH- 164/3
Vijay Shankar lofts Kulkarni over deep mid-wicket and 150 comes up for SRH! Another big over, 17 from it. Hyderabad need 47 runs in 37 balls
Vijay Shankar pulls it perfectly through square leg. Unadkat tries hard but can't stop it. 13 came off the over. SRH- 130/2 after 12 ovs. Hyderabad need 69 runs in 48 balls.
50 for David Warner! Took him just 26 balls. Back to back fifties for Warner in season 12. He is in really good form now. Powerplay ends and SRH- 69/0, 6 ovs
Warner on song!
Back to back boundaries and SRH- 34/0, 3 ovs. Good start for SRH. However, RR are guilty of bowling a wrong line and thereby allowing the release of pressure
SRH begin chase
Chasing 199, SRH are off to a flier as David Warner scores 14 off the first over & 11 off the second. SRH- 25/0, 2 ovs
Rajasthan Royals- 198/2 in 20 ovs
Sanju Samson remains unbeaten on 102 off 55 balls. Rajasthan Royals end on- 198/2 in their 20 overs. SRH need 199 to win. 123 runs in the last ten overs. Bhuvi went for 45 in the last two overs. Unbelievable.
100 for Samson
100 for Sanju Samson! He reaches there with a boundary and that too in just 54 balls. Also this is his second in IPL career! Fantastic batting
Sanju Samson smashes 4 fours and 1 six of Bhuvi's third over. Brilliant batting by the youngster. This is pure class and seems like Mahela Jayawardene is batting. No slogging or blind smashing but pure textbook cricket shots.RR- 164/2, 18 ovs
Five overs to go
Rahane shines for RR
This was Rahane's 27th IPL fifty but his first in the last 8 IPL innings. Incidentally, his last IPL fifty: 65 was also against SRH at Jaipur in April 2018.
RR surge past 100
100 up for RR. 50 for Ajinkya Rahane in 38 balls. Giving him company is Sanju Samson (44). The partnership is 87. SRH struggling with their fifth bowler.
Rajasthan Royals moving slowly after Buttler's departure. RR- 35/1, 6 ovs. Shahbaz Nadeem brought in starightaway after the powerplay.
Jos Buttler drives it past cover. That's the first boundary of the innings. Jos Buttler can be lethal during Powerplay in IPL - In 2018 he scored 217 runs in 118 balls (S/r 183.90)
In the last two IPL seasons, nine matches at the Rajiv Gandhi have been won by the team batting first and six have been won by the chasing team.
Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler are at the crease. Bhuvneshwar will open the attack. Rahane will face the first ball and straightway off the mark. Just 3 runs off the first over. A good start by Bhuvi! RR- 3/0, 1 over
