IPL 2019 Live Score, RR vs SRH in Jaipur: RR beat SRH by 7 wickets

Live Update

Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets and five balls to spare. Winning the toss, RR skipper Steve Smith elected to bowl first. SRH failed to put a big enough target, managing only 160 runs in their allotted 20 overs. SRH lost their wickets quickly and failed to keep the scorekeepers busy. RR played without the services of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer but looked pretty good even without them.

As of now, RR have moved up to number six on the points table with 10 points in 12 games. They’ve replaced Kolkata Knight Riders, who have slipped to number seven with 8 points in 11 matches. SRH remain in their fourth spot with 10 points in 11 games.

Rajasthan Royals will be led by Steve Smith, who took over from Ajinkya Rahane following his poor performance. However, Rahane is back in his form with the bat. Jaydev Unadkat, Krishnappa Gowtham, Dhawal Kulkarni and Varun Aaron will have to put up big performances to make up for the loss of Archer and Stokes. Ashton Turner, Rahane and Smith himself will have to be the main run scorers today.

For SRH, David Warner and Kane Williamson are the main scorers. Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar are the middle order specialists. Bowlers Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed will have to make sure to restrict Rahane and Smith as much as possible.

For RR, every game from now on will be like a semi-final. If they lose matches, the chances of them qualifying for the playoffs will get slimmer. SRH are in a slightly better position, though they'll want to win the match to get a margin of safety.
