IPL 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Jaydev Unadkat, Sanju Samson gun down SRH to keep RR alive

On Saturday, Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by seven wickets to end their home campaign on a winning note and keep alive their play-off chances in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Opting to bowl in a must-win game, Rajasthan first restricted Sunrisers to 160 for eight and then chased down the target in 19.1 overs.

By virtue of this win, RR have now moved to the sixth position in the eight-team standings with 10 points from 12 games.

To stay in contention for a play-off berth, Rajasthan now have to win their remaining two away games against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 30 and Delhi Capitals on May 4 and then hope for favourable results from other matches.

Jaydev Unadkar scalped two wickets, conceding 26 runs in his four overs, and played a pivotal role in RR pulling back the things after David Warner-Manish Pandey’s 75-run stand.

The RR batsman then executed their job of chasing the target. While Sanju Samson topped the scoresheet with an unbeaten knock of 48 runs, it was an incoming Liam Livingstone who scored a quick-fire 44.
