SRH vs RR Highlights and Match Recap, IPL 2019, Full cricket score: Sunrisers Hyderabad win with an over to spare


00:07 (IST)

Phew, what a match. SRH collect their first points and Royals go back with a heavy heart. They had a big total to win this one but the bowling and fielding effort let them down. And tomorrow, people, we have a double-header. Kings XI Punjab will host Mumbai Indians in the afternoon game and then Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla ground. We will see you tomorrow at 4 PM. Till then, good bye and good night. 

23:58 (IST)

Rashid Khan, Player of the Match: 

"I just try my best to do the best. I try to do the right thing in each department. That's how performing in each game. That was a plan to Buttler. I have got him in past a few times. I try and mix my five variations in leg spin. I realised soon that I might not get too much turn on this wicket. I need to bat properly. I am working hard in the nets. I need to back up my skills. Coaches tell me to believe in myself with the bat. 

23:55 (IST)

Kane Williamson, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain: Certainly wasn't easy. Very tough game. I thought Rajasthan played extremely well. It was a brilliant chase, an the two at the top of the order set the tone for us. Hopefully we continue that. Really good collective effort by us. Really good experience for us as a batting unit. (On Rashid introduced in powerplay) That was sort of the thinking, and it came off. He is such a wicket-taker for us. We just wanted to try and bring him on. His batting's improved so much. It's great he can come out and show firepower. Nice to be on the right side of the result.

23:48 (IST)

This was SRH’s third consecutive victory at Hyderabad against RR in IPL while also fourth consecutive victory against them in IPL.

Cracking finish, not for an RR fan. Rahane complimenting how well SRH batted in the first six overs, and it probably highlights the contrast in how RR played, Rahane in particular. That was the difference between these sides for me.

Warner: Look, one thing that inspires me is local fans. Full credit to Sanju and he played amazingly. The wicket got better. He showed how to bat and from the start, me and Jonny started off positively. We know the ground so well. We know the dimensions. Tonight there was no breeze. It was long time coming and I just love playing against this crowd. 

23:45 (IST)

Rahane: I think, the wicket was really good. The wicket was stopping a bit at the start. We thought 150 would be enough and Sanju batted brilliantly. I think they batted really well and got the momentum, credit goes to them. When a player like Warner bats like that, there is nothing a bowler can do, Shankar batted with flow as well. Sanju has been fantastic for us and we all know how fantastic he is. He will go miles. Consistency is key for Sanju from here on. 

23:42 (IST)

Rashid once again highlights how valuable he can be with the bat in this format

23:40 (IST)

This is also the highest target successfully chased by SRH in IPL. Their previous highest was 188 against DD in 2018.

After 19 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 201/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 16 , Rashid Khan 15)

SRH win by 5 wickets!

Archer bowled the 19th over and he started off with a perfect yorker. Speed 146.3 kph. No run. Next one lower-full toss on the off-stump line. One collected off it. Third ball, another low full-toss, one run came off it. Yorker to Pathan on the fourth delivery, he squeezes in one. A wide. Rashid hit a four and then a six to end the game in style. SRH collect their first points. 

23:40 (IST)

This is the highest target successfully chased against RR in IPL. The previous highest target successfully chased against RR in IPL was 192, chased by KXIP at Sharjah in 2014.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

23:38 (IST)

SIX! That's it!

Rashid Khan finishes it off in style, and he hits it off his pads, almost a helicopter to finish the game. SRH win by 5 wickets.

23:37 (IST)

FOUR! Yorker length, Rashid shuffles in his crease, makes room and hits it through the cover for a maximum. 

23:32 (IST)

After 18 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 187/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 14 , Rashid Khan 4)

Unadkat bowls the 17th over. Just 2 off the first three balls. Then bowled a over-the-shoulder wide. Lures Pathan into a heave, almost carried to long-on. 2 runs came off that shot. Rahane stops a certain boundary at cover inside the circle on the next. Rashid comes out and heaves it to leg side, collects 2. 8 from the over. Hyderabad need 12 runs in 12 balls. 

23:31 (IST)

Fascinating playoff left, with three games in a row tomorrow. Not a lot of runs to play with. Deepak Hooda and Rashid Khan remain. Have they left it OK late ?

23:26 (IST)

After 17 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 179/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 10 , Rashid Khan 1)

This match is heading towards a close finish. Archer comes back to the attack and he is building up good pace. One nothing delivery from him went for six. But apart from that delivery and one directionless bouncer, he has been bang on with his deliveries. Hyderabad need 20 runs in 18 balls.

23:22 (IST)


Slower from Archer, length ball and Pathan uses his all power and pulls it away for a massive six over the backward square leg

23:21 (IST)

After 16 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 169/5 ( Yusuf Pathan 1 , Rashid Khan 1)

Gopal has brought two wickets for RR. Is this the turning point in the game Royals wanted as Shankar and Pandey walk back on consecutive deliveries. Pathan and Rashid in the middle. Superb stuff from Gopal. He ends with a figures of 3/27 in four overs. Hyderabad need 30 runs in 24 balls.

23:19 (IST)

OUT! Poor cricket from Manish Pandey, Gopal fires in a googly, he could not pick it, did not move his front leg and wanted to play from the crease, the ball came in and hit his pads, right in front of the wickets, Gopal appealed and umpire quickly raised the finger. Gopal on a hat-trick. 
Manish Pandey lbw b Shreyas Gopal 1(4)

23:15 (IST)

OUT! Gopal comes into the attack and his leg-spinner has worked, gives flight to Shankar, he tries to clear long-on but fails, hits it directly to the fielder placed there. Shankar c (sub)Chopra b Shreyas Gopal 35(15)

23:12 (IST)

After 15 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 165/3 ( Vijay Shankar 34 , Manish Pandey 0)

Unadkat continues and just when you thought Shankar and Williamson were running away with the game here, a wicket has fallen. Williamson is gone. Unadkat with the wicket and one more here, will get them back in the game. Manish Pandey has joined Shankar in the middle. 

23:09 (IST)

OUT! Oh, Williamson is gone, trying to play the same shot that got him four runs on the previous delivery but this time he ended up hitting it straight to the fielder. Williamson c R Tripathi b Unadkat 14(10)

23:08 (IST)

FOUR! Williamson joins Shankar, ball going away, Williamson makes room an cuts it away through the point region for a boundary. 

23:06 (IST)

SIX! Shankar has taken the baton from Warner it seems as he knows no stopping, third six in 7 balls, on the legs and Shankar cleanly sends it across the boundary rope on the leg side.

23:05 (IST)

After 14 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 153/2 ( Kane Williamson (C) 10 , Vijay Shankar 27)

Kulkarni back into the attack and is welcomed with a massive six over the long-on boundary. A little period of lull in the over and then Shankar goes big again. Easy for Sunrisers from here. 17 off this over. Hyderabad need 46 runs in 36 balls.

23:03 (IST)

SIX! Short in length and slower in pace, Shankar goes deep in the crease, makes room and BANG, hits it over deep mid-wicket with ease

23:01 (IST)

SIX! Massive hit from Shankar, back of the length and Shankar clears his leg and hits it straight, the ball sails over the long-on fielder by a good distance. 

22:59 (IST)

After 13 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 136/2 ( Kane Williamson (C) 9 , Vijay Shankar 11)

Unadkat finally into the attack. This is a time for Rajasthan to bowl some cheap overs and put some pressure on Hyderabad batters. That last delivery almost took the edge off Williamson's bat. Just 6 off the over. Good start from the bowler.

22:58 (IST)

Jaydev Unadkat is one of the four bowlers to have taken a five-wicket haul at Hyderabad in IPL. He achieved the feat against SRH in 2016/17.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
22:58 (IST)
22:53 (IST)

After 12 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 130/2 ( Kane Williamson (C) 7 , Vijay Shankar 7)

Stokes completes his third over. Has leaked two boundaries again. We have not yet had a look at Jaydev Unadkat. Is this the time to launch him into the attack with Bairstow back in the hut and two new batsmen in.

22:52 (IST)

Finally a breakthrough for RR, coming via a slower bouncer. And another slower one creating an opportunity for a catch. After being clobbered for more than 9 overs, RR suddenly making an impression. But just 84 off the last 10 required now. 

It's often the  fielding that sets a team apart on a flat wicket. With nothing going the bowlers way, Dhawal manufacturing that wicket. Its something teams specifically train for nowadays. 

Snehal Pradhan, freelance cricket writer
22:52 (IST)
22:51 (IST)

Kane Williamson scored 735 runs at an average of 52.50 and a SR of 142.44 in IPL 2018. He was the leading run-getter in the tournament. 

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
22:51 (IST)
22:51 (IST)

FOUR! Short delivery from Stokes, Shankar rocks back and pulls him away for four to deep mid-wicket region, where Unadkat makes a half-hearted attempt. 

22:49 (IST)

FOUR! Nothing else but sheer elegance from the master Kane Williamson as he leans into the cover drive and fetches a boundary. 

22:49 (IST)

After 11 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 117/2 ( Kane Williamson (C) 1 , Vijay Shankar 0)

Gopal continues. Dot balls did the trick. Bairstow who was hitting the balls hard, could not score on two back-to-back ball and it eventually led to a fault shot, bringing his end. Shankar joins Williamson in the middle.

22:47 (IST)

OUT! Brilliant from Kulkarni at long-off, Bairstow hits this loopy delivery from Gopal to long-off and it appeared to be going over Kulkarni but he jumped just in time to pluck it. He dropped a simple Bairstow catch in last over, he grabs a stunner in this over. Bairstow c D Kulkarni b Shreyas Gopal 45(28) 

22:44 (IST)

After 10 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 115/1 ( Jonny Bairstow (W) 44 , Kane Williamson (C) 0)

Ben Stokes returns to the attack, gets his for a four but delivers a terrific bouncer to Warner which sends him back. He could have had another one but Kulkarni dropped him at third man. Rajasthan Royals could have staged a comeback in this over but poor fielding letting them down.

22:43 (IST)

Century stands for Sunrisers v RR in IPL:

Shikhar Dhawan/Kane Williamson, Hyderabad, 2018
David Warner/Jonny Bairstow Hyderabad, 2019*

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
22:43 (IST)
22:42 (IST)

FOUR! Another boundary, short and wide from Stokes, Bairstow cuts it away for four on off-side on the back foot. Classy stuff. 

22:41 (IST)

OUT! Rajasthan Royals take a deep breath as they see Warner walking back to the hut. Lovely bouncer from Stokes, Warner could not control his pull shit, ball took the leading edge and flew to Kulkarni at fine-leg who took a good catch. Warner c D Kulkarni b Stokes 69(37)

22:39 (IST)

FOUR! Fast hands from Bairstow and brilliant speculation. He made room and waited for the ball, cut it hard through the point region for a boundary.

22:37 (IST)

After 9 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 104/0 ( David Warner 69 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 34)

Gopal continues. One striking feature of this innings from Warner has been his approach. He has looked to attack but has respected the good deliveries, making sure he collected at least a single off them. The poor deliveries have not been spared. Running between the wickets have been brilliant from the two openers as well, and Royals' poor fielding effort has helped their cause too. 12 off this over.

22:36 (IST)

SIX! Big one from Bairstow, marginally short from Gopal and the batsman rocks back and pulls it away to the the third or fourth tier into the stand over deep mid-wicket.

22:34 (IST)

After 8 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 92/0 ( David Warner 66 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 25)

Gowtham brought back. But it does not stop the batting pair to give up hitting. Warner begins the over with a massive hit and follows it up with a boundary. Rajasthan, it seems, don't have any answer against this carnage from him. 

22:32 (IST)

FOUR! WOW, perfection from Warner as he picks it up from length and hits it over the covers, and fetches a boundary there.

22:31 (IST)

SIX! Warner goes dead straight this time, fullish in length from Gowtham and Warner clears the straight boundary by some distance.

22:31 (IST)

No player has now scored more fifty-plus scores than David Warner (41) in IPL and also no overseas player has scored more runs than him in IPL.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician
22:31 (IST)
22:30 (IST)

After 7 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 78/0 ( David Warner 54 , Jonny Bairstow (W) 23)

Shreyas Gopal, right-arm leg break, brought into the attack. More spin from Royals. Poor bowling and now poor fielding from the visitors as they are not learning and picking up their game. 78 already on the board for Hyderabad. Warner and Bairstow quickly taking it away from RR.

22:29 (IST)

FOUR! Poor effort at deep fine-leg from Kulkarni, who was not able to judge the catch, came forward and then went back, missed the bounce completely and the ball raced away for four. Four more runs for Bairstow. 

22:27 (IST)

It's that kind of pitch, where you don't know exactly how much is enough. Warner already as a fifty, and is showing no signs of letting up. This is how RR need their opener or top three to play, and it puts the effort of Rahane into some perspective.

There were a plenty of positives for Hyderabad in their first clash of the season. David Warner, on his return to the Orange Army, smashed a brilliant 53-ball 85 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, too looked in good touch with the ball in hand until he was hit for runs against Andre Russell. Against Rajasthan, regular captain Kane Williamson will return to the fold, which will boost the batting line-up.

Rajasthan, on the other hand, know that they did not do many things wrong in the last game. They need to sharpen their batting and they will become a team to beat in the tournament.  There are some big hitters in both the teams. A spicy contest awaits us all at Hyderabad.
