Low Score Thrilling Won Rajasthan beat Hyderabad

Rajasthan Royals Indian players came to the fore as Shane Watson team managed to get over the line against Hyderabad Sunrisers in the 4th match of the IPL 7th Season of at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday evening.

Rajasthan bowlers led by Dhawal Kulkarni, Rajat Bhatia and Pravin Tambe limited the top-heavy Hyderabad batting line-up to 133 for 6 before a 77-run partnership for the 4th wicket between Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny took their team over the line with only 3 deliveries left in the match.
Ajinkya Rahane and Stuart Binny 77-run partnership in 9.4 overs for the 4th wicket Rahane hit six boundaries in his 53-ball 59, before Amit Mishra had him caught by Aaron Finch at long-off, with Rajasthan 108 for 4 in 16 overs. Stuart Binny remained unbeaten on 48 from 32 deliveries, which included four boundaries and a six, as his counter-attacking knock proved to be the perfect foil to Rahane’s innings.

Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner added 75 runs for the 2nd wicket, but it took the pair 64 balls to do so. Though Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner found boundaries hard to come by, they rotated the strike well and were fast between the wickets, but the required impetus to spur Hyderabad’s innings failed to come in the face of tight bowling by Rajasthan Royals bowlers.
