IPL: Hyderabad restrict Rajasthan to 125

Indian Premier League 2018 Rajasthan Royals Sunrisers Hyderabad Look To Overcome Sudden Captaincy Changes

Sunrisers Hyderabad made a strong statement of aggressive intent as they got their Indian Premier League 2018 campaign off to a thunderous start, swatting the feeble challenge of Rajasthan Royals aside by nine wickets on Monday (April 9) in the 50th IPL showdown at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. SRH pulled off a brilliant all-round performance to stifle the Rajasthan Royals and they will look to do the same against the Mumbai Indians, who they had faced last season in the eliminator. Though Hyderabad started poorly, losing their opener Wriddhiman Saha (5), but after that there was no looking back as Dhawan and skipper Williamson (36 not out) guided it to a comfortable victory with over four overs remaining. The opener was yet to open his account at that stage. "The intent was great from ball one". This was also his 29th fifty in the IPL. This meant Williamson didn't need to flex his muscles, and relied on pure timing and hand-eye coordination to pick runs. But that was as good as it got for the visitors. Except for Kulkarni, who gave away 18 runs in 2.5 overs, every other bowler leaked runs.

Ben Stokes isn't completely fit and might not bowl four overs always; hence Jaydev Unadkat needs to step up to be the leader of the pack. It was then that Dwayne Bravo's innings really took off, smashing 20 runs in the next two overs of Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah.

Earlier in the day, it wasn't the kind of start that Rajasthan would have hoped for after coming back into the league after a gap of two years.

D'Arcy Short came into this IPL season with a reputation to live up to; the Australian - the top run-getter in T20s so far this year - has a batting strike-rate of 150.38. RR managed to put a small total of 125/9 with Sanju Samson being the highest run scorer with 49 runs.

Royals couldn't build any substantial partnerships and lost wickets at regular intervals. "So I'm just continuing with that formula, and I'm happy with it", Dhawan added.

Iran says 7 dead in Syria strike will 'not go unanswered'
Iran and Russian Federation are allies of Assad, with Iran evidencing some control over Syrian military installations. The news agency also quoted Qasemi as saying that the reports of the gas attack "do not match facts".

With him, Rashid Khan will also be in contention at the same time, extending full support to his fellow team-mate as one bowls leg-spin from one end while the other bowls some accurate medium-pace.

Think that the first match was just a warm-up for what is usually a race Bhuvi wins slowly and steadily. Given his excellent show in the first game against RR, Australia quick Billy Stanlake too will not be dropped. Another England worldwide Jos Buttler fell cheaply and could not bail his team out of trouble.

The fourth match of IPL season 11 was the between the best two Rajasthan Royals and Sun Risers Hyderabad.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar troubled the batsmen with his impeccable lines and returned with figures of 1/30.
