IPL 2019, RR vs SRH: Rajasthan thump Hyderabad at home

Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets in an Indian Premier League match on Saturday.

RR won the toss and opted to field first. Sunrisers got off too a good start even after the early dismissal of skipper Kane Williamson (13) with David Warner and Manish Pandey sharing 75 runs off just 50 balls for the second wicket before losing the plot after the halfway stage.

Manish Pandey hit a quick half-century. Pandey reached his fifty in 27 balls with the help of eight fours but just when the partnership was looking threatening, a brilliant catch by Rajasthan skipper Steve Smith sent Warner packing. (AP Photo)

Wickets kept on tumbling for Sunrisers after a fine first wicket stand between Warner and Pandey. The next to depart was Deepak Hooda for a duck caught one-handed off his own bowling by Unadkat (2/26) in the next over. (AP Photo)

Chasing 161, Rajasthan were off to a flier with Ajinkya Rahane and Liam Livingstone forging a 78 run-stand. The Englishman was the aggressor of the two playing lofted shots and racing to 44 off 26 balls before falling to Rashid Khan. (AP Photo)
