IPL 2018: 4th Match, SRH vs RR – Sunrisers Hyderabad Players’ Rating
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) banked on two of their senior teammates to start the Indian Premier League (IPL) on a real high against the returning to the T20 fold Rajasthan Royals.
Hyderabad banked on a 121-run partnership for the second-wicket between Shikhar Dhawan (77*) and Kane Williamson (36*) to cross the line with an ease in just 15.5 overs.
However, SRH received an early blow when they lost Wriddhiman Saha, who was sent to smash the ball at the top. Although Saha failed to utilise the opportunity, it was a cakewalk for them since them.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals couldn’t find their foot on the ground on their return to the league after two years. They lost wickets at regular intervals and lacked a proper partnership.
Moreover, the Hyderabad bowlers were of the absolute top notch as the RR batsmen failed to get going.
Here you will see the players’ rating of Sunrisers Hyderabad team:
Shikhar Dhawan: (9.5/10)
Shikhar Dhawan was terrific today under the light for Hyderabad. He led the top-order in the absence of his opening partner David Warner.
The southpaw played an unbeaten knock of 77 runs from 57 balls to see his team through.
Wriddhiman Saha (wk): (4.5/10)
Wriddhiman Saha was promoted up the order to go after the bowlers. However, he failed to utilise the opportunity as he mistimed one to the mid-off fielder.
However, he was absolutely spot on with the gloves on.
Kane Williamson (c): (8.5/10)
The skipper Kane Williamson led the team from the front. He started with a brilliant run-out and then took an absolute stunner.
Meanwhile, with the bat, he played the role of a cushion to Dhawan. He remained unbeaten on 36 as Hyderabad crossed the rope with ease.
Manish Pandey: (2/10)
The middle-order batsman Manish Pandey had no role to play as he changed his base from Kolkata to Hyderabad. Although he picked a catch to dismiss Rahul Tripathi.
However, he holds a key role in Hyderabad’s middle-order going into the tournament.
Deepak Hooda: (1/10)
The all-rounder had no part to play in this tie as the top-order batsmen did the job for the side.
However, he will be eager to perform for his side in an attempt to cement an India berth.
Yusuf Pathan: (2/10)
The veteran all-rounder Yusuf Pathan also didn’t play any part in the match excepting affecting a run-out.
However, he will be raring to go given an opportunity.
Shakib Al Hasan: (8/10)
The all-rounder in the form of Shakib Al Hasan had an outstanding outing with the ball for his new franchise. Shakib claimed two wickets giving away only 23 runs in his four overs.

Rashid Khan: (7/10)
The wrist-spinner from Afghanistan Rashid Khan once again did the job in the middle-overs. He continued his good form from the World Cup Qualifiers.
Rashid gave away runs at a rate of 5.75 bagging one wicket.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: (6.5/10)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar led the attack pretty well. Although he bagged only one wicket but was good throughout.
However, SRH will want him to improve going into the league.
Billy Stanlake: (7/10)
The tall and lanky pacer Billy Stanlake had a good start to this year’s IPL. Stanlake racked up some good pace and hurried the batsmen.

Siddarth Kaul: (8/10)
The fast bowler from Punjab Siddharth Kaul was outstanding with the ball. He bowled some tight line and length and kept things tight for the batsmen.
