IPL 2014 Sunrises Hyderabad Bowlers Stunning easy Beat Rajasthan Royals

IPL 2014 7th Season Sunrisers Hyderabad power in bowling came to the fore as they protected a low total to end Rajasthan Royals' 4-match winning streak in IPL-7 on Thursday. Restricted to 134/9 after they were sent in to bat - thanks to Shane Watson hat-trick - Sunrisers shot out Rajasthan Royals for 102 in 19.5 overs for a 32-run triumph.
Indian Team Swing bowler Bhuvnenshwar (4/14) claimed the lion's share of wickets, Dale Steyn (2/31) on a run of 4 victories, Royals would have suppressed a snigger at the score they had held back Sunrisers to after sending them in. 

The next to go was Aaron Finch (9), caught brilliantly by Ajinkya Rahane running in from deep midwicket. And still Warner remained in the dugout, preceded as he was by Lokesh Rahul (18) and then Ojha (17). When David Warner did come out - following Rahul being bowled by a Rajat Bhatia slower ball he was stumped off a Pravin Tambe googly.
Another Bhatia slower ball dismissal of Ojha meant that Rajasthan Royals support cast had yanked down Sunrisers – from their rapid start – to 86/4 after 12 overs. Watson had cleaned up Dhawan in the 4th over. When he returned for the 17th his 1st 2 balls fetched him the latter 2-3 of a hat-trick – Royals’ second in successive matches after Tambe feat against Kolkata.
