Twitter Reactions: Sanju Samson’s ton goes in vain as SRH beat RR by 5 wickets

Posted On

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 5 wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday and registered their first win of the IPL 2019 season.


Batting first, RR posted a massive total of 198/2 on the board, thanks to wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson’s century, the first of this season, and captain Ajinkya Rahane’s well constructed 70-run knock.

Chasing 199, SRH opener David Warner (69 off 37 balls) hit almost every ball out of the boundary rope for either a four or a six in the power play overs. Jonny Bairstow held the other side beautifully with 45 off 28 balls.


Yusuf Pathan and Rashid Khan were left on the crease to score much-needed runs on time and they rose to the occasion by reaching the target on the last ball of the 19th over.
