Rajasthan Royals came up with an improved all-round showing to revive their campaign as Jos Buttler’s scintillating hundred helped RR beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 55 runs on Sunday.
Rajasthan rode on superb bowling performances from Mustafizur Rahman (3/20) and Chris Morris (3/29) to restrict Hyderabad to 165 for 8 on Sunday.
Chasing a record 221 for victory, Hyderabad got off to a superb start as Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow added 57 runs in just 6.1 overs before Mustafizur Rahman cleaned up Pandey on 31.
Bairstow was the next SRH batsman to depart as Rahul Tewatia accounted for his wicket. Kane Williamson’s first outing as SRH captain in IPL 2021 was far from impressive as the Kiwi batsman scored a 21-ball 20 before Kartik Tyagi removed him.
Chris Morris returned with excellent figures of 3/20 as he dismissed Vijay Shankar (8), Kedar Jadhav (19) and Abdul Samad (10) to derail Rajasthan Royals’ chase.
Earlier, opener Jos Buttler hit his first IPL hundred to power Rajasthan Royals to 220 for 3 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League match in Delhi on Sunday.
Put into bat, Buttler (124 off 64 balls) and skipper Sanju Samson, who smashed 48 off 33 balls, stitched a 150-run partnership for the second wicket after the Royals lost opener Yashasvi Jaiswal (12) cheaply.
Jaiswal smashed three fours before the Afghan showed his class and trapped the youngster leg before.
Vijay Shankar managed to get rid of Samson in the 17th over with young Riyan Parag walking in.
However, there was no stopping Buttler, who was in complete control, as he continued to hit boundaries at will. Sandeep Sharma eventually brought his innings to an end of the penultimate over.
Rajasthan collected 11 more runs in the final over to end their innings at 220 for 3. For SRH, spinner Rashid Khan (1/24), Vijay Shankar (1/31), and Sandeep Sharma (1/50) took one wicket each.
