Here are the big highlights from the match:
Samson and Jaiswal helped RR recover after an early blow:Sanju Samson (82 off 57 balls) and opener Yashaswi Jaiswal (36 off 23) added 56 runs after the loss of Evin Lewis (6), who was dismissed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the second over of the day. This partnership was crucial in giving RR a platform to reach a big total.
Samson and Lomror took RR past 160: After Jaiswal was cleaned up by Sandeep Sharma and and Liam Livingstone (4) was sent on his way by Rashid Khan, Samson forged another partnership, this time for the fourth wicket, to add 84 runs with Mahipal Lomror, who remained on 29 not out in the end.
Bhuvi and Kaul stopped RR at 164/5 with frugal final two overs: At the end of the 18th over RR were 153/3. They were in a great position to go for a 180-plus total. However, the SRH bowlers managed to keep things very tight. The Royals, in fact, couldn’t manage to score a boundary in the last 17 deliveries of their innings. Bhunveshwar finished his spell of 1/28 on a tight note, while Siddarth Kaul (2/36) struck twice in the final over to remove Samson and Riyan Parag (0) to further limit Rajasthan’s total.

Roy and Saha gave SRH chase a flying start: SRH decided to drop David Warner and bring in Jason Roy into the playing XI and the move paid off. Roy (60 off 42) and Wriddhiman Saha (18 off 11) added 57 runs in 5.1 overs, at which point the latter was dismissed by Lomror. It set the foundation for SRH’s run-chase.
Roy and Williamson made sure there were no hiccups: Another healthy partnership followed after Saha’s departure, as Roy continued in strong fashion and found expert support in skipper Kane Williamson (51 not out off 41) at the other end. The duo added 57 runs for the second wicket to put SRH in cruise-control mode.
Williamson and Abhishek took SRH home: Chetan Sakariya struck to remove Roy in the 12th over, and Mustafizur Rahman sent back Priyam Garg (0) in the following over, but Williamson and Abhishek Sharma (21 not out off 16) ensured Hyderabad crossed the finish line without anymore hiccups and registered a seven-wicket win.
SRH won but joined the party a little too late: It was the Hyderabad team’s only second win of the season, but it was registered in their 10th match, which means they remain at the rock bottom eighth position. The defeat, meanwhile, kept RR from entering the playoff bracket of top four. They are currently placed sixth with 8 points.
