Today’s IPL Match Here: Match 30: IPL 2018: DD Vs CSK
Hyderabad was host to the first match of another exciting Sunday in the Indian Premier League. A hot, sunny day in Hyderabad saw the inform hosts take on a Rajasthan side who have had a mixed bag this season. Having coped with the loss of Steve Smith with Sanju Sampson stepping up to play Smith’s role to perfection, Rajasthan have lacked in other areas. Shining like bits and fits, Rajasthan sat on 6 points with 3 wins and 3 defeats before the match. Although not a must-win for them, they knew that defeating one of the best sides this tournament would be a big confidence boost for them going forward and would make teams wary of facing them. Hyderabad on the other side had their own motives for the win. The 2 points on the day would take them to the first position and make them the first team to cross the 12 run point. And it was Hyderabad’s determination that was stronger as they stepped up as a unit to ensure they emerged victorious.
For Sunrisers Hyderabad the first part of the match didn’t go exactly as they would have planned. Shikhar Dhawan who has struggled since his return from injury once again failed to impress as he departed early. Alex Hales and the genius Kane Williamson took command of the innings from there on a wicket that was clearly offering good purchase to the bowlers. Their knock was, however, the only sparkling point of Hyderabad’s innings who ended their 20 overs at 151-6.
Chasing a perfectly attainable total was made much harder than thought by Rajasthan. With the dependable Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Sampson being the only shining lights for Rajasthan yet again, the chase seemed on for them before a middle order batting collapse saw them bat out their full quota of overs 11 runs short of the target.
