SRH vs RR Highlights, IPL 2021: Williamson, Roy fifties take Hyderabad to a convincing 7-wicket win over Rajasthan
- IPL 2021 Highlights, SRH vs RR Match updates: Sunrisers Hyderabad played the perfect spoilsport for Rajasthan Royals and their chances of making the playoffs as an assured batting effort, led by fifties from Jason Roy and Kane Williamson, led SRH to a 7-wicket win in Dubai.
IPL 2021 Highlights, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR): In chase of 165, SRH got off to a blistering start as a flurry of boundaries unleashed by openers Jason Roy and Wriddhiman Saha (18) took SRH past 50 in just 4.5 overs. Eventually, SRH got to 63/1 at the end of the Powerplay as Saha was dismissed by Mahipal Lomror. Roy continued to deal in boundaries and was joined by Kane Williamson, who kept the run-rate up. Roy got to his fifty on debut but fell soon after for 60 to Chetan Sakariya. Mustafizur Rahman then removed Priyam Garg for a golden duck. But SRH weren't going to give up as Abhishek Sharma (21*) and Williamson (51*) put on a crucial 48-run stand to guide their team home to a seven-wicket win in just 18.3 overs. Earlier in the day, Sanju Samson was the star of the first innings as he scored a bombastic 82, off just 57 balls, to help Rajasthan Royals post 164/5 in 20 overs. In the process, he also surpassed DC's Shikhar Dhawan in the ‘Orange Cap’ race as he became the league's highest run-getter. Yashasvi Jaiswal (36) was the second-highest run-scorer for RR and he stitched a 56-run stand with the skipper. After his departure, Mahipal Lomror (29*) stitched an important 84-run stand with his skipper to take the side past 150. Liam Livingstone (4), Riyan Parag (0), and Evin Lewis (6) failed with the bat.

“We would have had a hit as well. But we will look to adapt early with the ball and limit their total. Few young players are getting opportunities. Jason Roy is at the top for David Warner. Pandey, Kedar miss out. Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma are playing. Sid Kaul replaces injured Khaleel. Today there is something fresh. There are a lot of changes. So it is important that the youngsters come in and stick to their strengths. As a unit we do want to be putting performances together. That is the focus for us even though we are sort of no longer in the comp. We want to play the kind of cricket we are proud of.”

IPL 2021 Live: RR's Mahipal Lomror speaks to the broadcasters
"My role is as a finisher and I just try to prepare myself accordingly at training. We play scenarios as well in the nets where we look to chase targets and all against the bowlers. My bowling was because of the captain's gut feel and he had seen me bowling in the practice games as well. We didn't get any momentum while batting in the last game and we are going to look to build partnerships and momentum in the coming games. We still have five matches left. If we win we could definitely go up on the points table. Our focus is just one match at a time and focus on the processes."

It is nice to have a legend like Sangakkara,he has a calming effect and knows his business as well. It has been nice to mix with him off the field as well. We have a great thing going and hopefully, a win will put us in a better space. Just winning is important at the moment, over the NRR first things first. Lomror has been unbelievable and hopefully, things can continue.”

"We are using exactly the same surface we used last night. It still looks fantastic. Nice coverage of grass, got a good sound... tap, tap, tap, tap, tap. Looks hard. One side is just 62 metres," says Simon Doull.
"Yes the pacers had success with slower balls, but if the batters stand in the crease they can hit down the ground or use the shorter boundary. For me, it still remains good for batting," reckonsAnjum Chopra.

Their last meeting in the first half of IPL 2021 was dominated by an innings of a lifetime by England's Jos Buttler. At the Arun Jaitley Stadium, the swashbuckling keeper-batsman smashed 124 of just 64 balls to guide RR to 220/3 in 20 overs. In response, SRH could only manage 165/8 in 20 overs, and hence, registering a 55-run win. Both Mistafizur Rahman and Chris Morris picked up 3 wickets each.

The SRH-RR battle will also see two batting stalwarts go head-to-head but on the back of very different runs. While SRH captain Williamson is yet to fire in the second phase of the IPL, RR captain Samson seemed to have found his mojo in the previous game with an unbeaten 40. So far, Williamson has only scored 147 runs in 6 games, while Samson has scored 351 runs in 9 matches. Who will win this battle today?
