IPL 2018: Match 29, Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Sunrisers Hyderabad Players’ Ratings
As a result, SRH will sit pretty at the top of the points table with six wins from eight games. Batting first, Alex Hales (45) provided a perfect start to Hyderabad. However, he lost Shikhar Dhawan at the other end.
Meanwhile, Kane Williamson was absolutely brilliant playing a responsible knock of 63 runs.
Also, Jofra Archer is having an outstanding run returning with three wickets from four overs.
In reply, however, the home team got a perfect start banking on Ajinkya Rahane (65) and Sanju Samson (40). However, the middle-order collapsed poorly which cost them the game. The Sunrisers bowlers were once again on top notch with Siddarth Kaul returning with two wickets.
Here is the players rating:
Shikhar Dhawan: (3.5/10)
Shikhar Dhawan has lost his form since he suffered the hand injury. However, his form with the bat will be crucial for the Sunrisers going into the game. The southpaw scored six runs before getting out.
Alex Hales: (7.5/10)
The opener from England had an outstanding debut for the Sunrisers, as he provided a blistering start. Hales played a responsible knock of 45 runs including four boundaries.
Kane Williamson (c): (9/10)
Williamson continues to lead his team from the front without much hype. He once again notched up a fifty, as Hyderabad posted 151 runs on the board. Williamson scored 63 runs with the help of seven fours and two sixes.
Manish Pandey: (4.5/10)
Pandey started from where he had left in the last game but failed to capitalise on the start. He scored 15 runs before departing to Jaydev Unadkat. However, SRH management will want him to continue scoring runs in the games to come.
Shakib Al Hasan: (4.5/10)
The all-rounder from Bangladesh had an average outing against the Rajasthan Royals. He got out cheaply for six runs before returning with none for 30 in his four overs.
However, Shakib will look to put an improved performance in the next game.
Yusuf Pathan: (5/10)
The veteran all-rounder contributed with the ball after failing with the bat. Pathan returned one for 14 in his two overs. However, he will look to put his A game in front in the next game.
Wriddhiman Saha (wk): (5/10)
Saha demoted to the lower-order after repeated failure at the top. However, he contributed with a quick knock of 11 runs, as Hyderabad crossed the 150 runs mark. He needs to step up to the occasion to retain his spot in the playing XI.
Rashid Khan: (6.5/10)
The Afghan leg-spinner went for 31 runs in his four overs. However, claimed the vital wicket of Jos Buttler. Rashid has led the bowling and the Hyderabad would him to continue doing the same.
Basil Thampi: (5/10)
Thampi was a bit wayward in today’s game. However, he kept his nerves in the last over to defend the target. He needs to bowl a tight line and length in the next outing.
Siddarth Kaul: (8/10)
Siddarth Kaul was simply outstanding with the ball in today’s game. He led the bowling unit in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Kaul returned with two 23 two in his four overs. The team management will want him to continue this effort going deep into the league.
Sandeep Sharma: (8.5/10)
The seamer from Punjab has been doing an outstanding job for the Hyderabad in the limited opportunities. Sandeep has bowled tight line and length and has provided early breakthroughs. He returned with one for 15 in his full quota of four over.
