Sunrisers Hyderabad Convincingly Beat Rajasthan Royals

Ajinkya Rahane will lead Rajasthan Royals in the 2018 Indian Premier League after Steve Smith was banned for this edition due to the ball-tampering scandal

"Getting a good start in the first six overs, that was the key, and we got that", Rahane had said after the match. We did not get that one partnership. But we lost crucial wickets in the middle overs.

Observing that it is just the beginning of the tournament, he expressed confidence that the team would give its best in the coming matches. He dismissed D'Arcy Short with a direct hit run out, then took a tricky catch to remove the risky Ben Stokes. "D'Arcy Short, he did really well in Big Bash, did well for Australia recently, Joss Butler and Stokes, we all know how risky they are and Ben Laughlin is an experienced bowler in T20 cricket", he said. Despite the quality in their ranks, a lot depends on how Gambhir utilizes his resources to get the most out of his players. Given his excellent show in the first game against RR, Australia quick Billy Stanlake too will not be dropped. "He (Kaul) bowled well". Shakib Al Hasan and Siddarth Kaul were standouts with the ball. While his hitting somewhat made up for Rahane's slow start to push the Powerplay score up to 48 for 1, the decision to push Tripathi down hit them hard later.

The absence of David Warner didn't seem to have affected the Sunrisers, although skipper Williamson admitted that the team missed his presence in the dugout.

"It is a great opportunity". Feel fortunate to be able to do it.

On paper, the Daredevils look the stronger team; will they be able to translate potential to performance? There are some changes this year.

Playing under new captains, both Royals and Daredevils crashed to defeats in their first game. Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya batted ahead of him and yet Pollard might keep his place in the XI. He is world class. SRH pulled off a brilliant all-round performance to stifle the Rajasthan Royals and they will look to do the same against the Mumbai Indians, who they had faced last season in the eliminator.

The most complete bowling attack going around in the IPL? He is very aggressive option, bowls very quickly and a very tall guy. He also picked up a wicket and conceded just 29 runs in his four overs.

Shikhar Dhawan was the clear hero of the evening as he remained unconquered scoring 77 runs off just 57 balls.

Munro has scored his 400 T20 runs this year at a strike-rate of 189.57, while Rishabh Pant's career strike-rate of 161.59 is the best among all Indian batsmen with more than 1000 runs in T20 cricket. Shikhar has been in really good space for quite some time. He took his time to bloom a year ago though, flourishing mainly in the latter half of the season.
