Sunrisers Hyderabad took almost two weeks for moving to eight points from six as they thumped the Rajasthan Royals by 8 wickets in Dubai. The victory during RR vs SRH will go down as a special one in the history of Sunrisers. The franchise, well known to witness the domination by the overseas batsmen, saw two Indian scoring unbeaten fifties. Jofra Archer’s spell with the new ball consumed both David Warner and Jonny Bairstow but the chase of 155 was a lot easier than expected from thereon.
The main reason for the big win of SRH during the RR vs SRH game was Manish Pandey and his aggressive display with the bat from as early as 4th over. Pandey smashed an unbeaten 83 from only 47 balls with help of eight sixes and four fours. As many as four maximums were hit by the Karnataka batsman during the powerplay overs itself. Pandey raced to a fifty in only 28 balls and end up adding 140 runs for the 3rd wicket in only 93 balls with Vijay Shankar. The all-rounder gave much-needed support to Manish by scoring an unbeaten 51-ball 52.
