Highlights:

fifties
power
Sunrisers
to
7-wicket
win

Sunrisers
made
a
couple
of
changes
for
their
tenth
match
this
season,
and
the
changes
worked
in
their
favour
as
SRH
notched
up
only
their
second
win
of
the
season.

After
electing
to
bat
first,
Rajasthan
Royals
skipper
Sanju
Samson
scored
a
scintillating
57-ball
82
to
guide
the
Royals
to
a
competitive
164/5.

But
Hyderabad
once
again
proved
that
no
team
can
be
written
off
in
this
tournament.
The
bottom-placed
team,
chased
down
the
target
with
nine
balls
to
spare.

Jason
Roy,
who
had
been
handed
his
SRH
cap
ahead
of
the
game,
had
a
stellar
debut.
Coming
in
place
of
David
Warner,
Roy
put
SRH
in
control
of
the
chase
with
a
stunning
42-ball
60.

Skipper
Kane
Williamson
played
a
captain’s
knock,
scoring

to

home.

Though
Sunrisers
remained
at
the
bottom
of
the
table,
the
outcome
dented
Rajasthan’s
chances
of
qualifying
for
the
playoffs.
A
win
would
have
propelled
the
Royals
up
to
fourth.
Following
Monday’s
match,
still
in
the
hunt
for
a
playoff
berth,
the
Royals
remained
sixth
with
four
wins
from
ten
matches.

Losing
Captain:
Sanju
Samson
(RR):

I
think
it
was
a
decent
score.
The
wicket
was
sticky,
and
they
were
bowling
well.
Maybe
we
could
have
got
10
to
20
more
actually.
The
last
overs
was
the
difference

you
can
say
that.
I
wanted
to
keep
going,
but
we
kept
losing
wickets
here
and
there.
We
definitely
need
to
work
a
lot
on
both
our
batting
and
bowling.
We
need
to
be
at
our
best
each
and
every
ball.
We
need
to
lift
our
standards.


Winning
Captain:
Kane
Williamson
(SRH):

It’s
a
good
feeling.
I
think
we
can
look
at
the
performance
and
say
it
was
much
improved.
It
was
nice
to
be
on
the
right
side.
Hopefully
we
can
keep
building
on
this
and
see
some
of
the
young
players
come
out
and
take
the
opportunity
and
enjoy
the
cricket.
Sanju
batted
outstanding
and
they
were
looking
to
score
more
but
we
managed
to
close
them
into
a
par-ish
total.
And
then
the
partnership
with
the
bat
up
top.
Roy
is
an
injection
of
energy.
He’s
been
on
the
sidelines
but
was
always
ready
to
go.
He
did
what
he
does,
great
to
see.
Fantastic
player,
great
contribution.
(Next
up
CSK)
We
want
to
recover
before
the
next
game.
Couple
of
days
away,
new
venue,
need
to
take
on
CSK,
top
of
the
table,
tough
to
beat.
But
as
we
know
every
team
in
this
tournament
is
good.


Player
of
the
Match:
Jason
Roy
(SRH):

Makes
me
really
happy.
Really
grateful
for
the
opportunity
from
Sunrisers.
Have
been
training,
and
waiting
hard.
Grateful
for
this
award
too

we
had
some
incredible
performances
today.
Happy
to
get
over
the
line.
I
kind
of
accessed
different
areas

wasn’t
as
free
flowing
as
I’d
hoped.
(Wriddhiman)
He
was
instrumental
in
that
partnership.
We’ve
got
to
keep
our
feet
very
grounded
(next
match
against
CSK).
We’ve
had
a
very
tough
tournament,
but
to
come
out
today
to
chase
a
decent
total
was
hugely
impressive.
We
have
to
stick
to
our
basics.


Abhishek
Sharma
(SRH):

It
was
big
opportunity
for
me.
I
was
waiting
for
my
chance.
All
I
wanted
to
do
was
contribute
for
my
team.
I
was
planning
for
this
innings

if
I
get
a
chance
I
have
to
contribute
and
lead
my
team
to
the
winning
side.
Kane
kept
telling
me
I
can
do
it.
He’s
a
great
captain.
He
kept
boosting
me
on.
(During
the
mix
up)
I
said
one,
but
later
said
no.
How
can
I
say
in
hindi
to
Williamson!
