Earlier, after being asked to bat first, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their skipper early but the pair of David Warner and Manish Pandey steadied the ship for the touring side.
The way @im_manishpandey has played in the last couple of innings, it's been a treat to watch. He played similarly in the 2014 edition of #IPL when @KKRiders lifted the coveted trophy. That knock in the final! Good old days! #RRvSRH— Nikhil (@IamNicck) April 27, 2019
Lovely to see Manish Pandey revel in his role of no.3 for the last two innings. The good thing is that he is getting to face spin more, a good player of which he is. That's making his run-scoring easier and delightful as well. #RRvSRH #IPL19 #VIVOIPL— S. Sudarshanan (@Sudarshanan7) April 27, 2019

Manish Pandey adjudged stumped after being caught. Hopefully the decision will be reversed in the innings break #RRvsSRH— Amol Karhadkar (@karhacter) April 27, 2019
Manish Pandey falls. In more ways than one. #RRvSRH— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) April 27, 2019
Rajasthan though came back in the game with a flurry of wickets towards the end overs to keep them 160/8.
#SRH are wasting Rashid Khan's striking abilities. Big opportunity missed. Should promote him like Narine. Can change the game in a couple of overs.— Aditya (@forwardshortleg) April 27, 2019
In the chase, Ajinkya Rahane and Liam Livingstone got their side off to a good start, racing away to their best Powerplay score against Hyderabad.
Rahane and Livingstone take a leaf out of Watson coaching manual against Rashid.— cricBC (@cricBC) April 27, 2019
Rajasthan batsmen not leaving the crease till the ball is delivered. Ravi Ashwin for the win!— if Shrikant,who can? (@HomerOpines) April 27, 2019
Ajinkya Rahane is suddenly batting like peak Ajinkya Rahane.— KASHISH (@crickashish217) April 27, 2019
Livingstone looked pretty good there, and against Rashid of all bowers. Should be looked at as the answer to England’s T20 middle order issues.— Kieran (@BerbaSpin) April 27, 2019
Though Hyderabad dismissed both of them, Sanju Samson saw them home with ample time to spare.
I am always flummoxed about why Sanju Samson isn't playing at the highest level. He has everything needed. I would be very keen to know what is coming in the way of consistency, which is what is preventing him from being a regular India player.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 27, 2019
We all thought RR is quite a messed up squad when the captaincy role was handed to Steve Smith and Jos Buttler flew back home but they have since won 3 out of 4 games with wins against some pre-tournament favs like MI, KKR and SRH. #IPL2019— Shubh AggarWall (@shubh_chintak) April 27, 2019
Changing captains seemed to have worked for Rajasthan Royals. #IPL2019— Naeemah (@NaeemahBenjamin) April 27, 2019
Ashton Turner was the most relieved man as he finally managed to score a run and break his rut of ducks.
Bhuvi, Warner and the entire @rajasthanroyals dugout breaks into laughter as Turner FINALLY gets off the mark after 5 straight ducks. Oh, the moment. Will be remembered for some time now. All smiles in Jaipur 😂💙 #IPL2019 #RRvSRH— Sakshi Gupta (@sakshi2929) April 27, 2019
