IPL 2020, SRH vs RR Highlights: Rajasthan Royals (RR) pulled off yet another miracle in the ongoing IPL 2020 campaign as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by five wickets with just a ball to spare at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.
After winning the toss, Hyderabad opted to bat first. Despite losing Jonny Bairstow early on, David Warner (48) and Manish Pandey (54) provided the foundation of the innings on a rather slow wicket. Due to some late heroics by Kane Williamson (22*) and Priyam Garg (15), SRH posted a total of 158/4 at the end of the 20 overs.
In the chase, Rajasthan faltered right from the start as they lost star players in Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Steve Smith inside the opening five overs. Hyderabad mounted pressure on them and reduced them to 78/5 at one stage. But owing to a 85-run partnership between Rahul Tewatia (45*) and Riyan Parag (42*), RR managed to eke out a win and ended their four-match losing streak. They ended their innings on 163/5 after 19.5 overs.
