IPL 2019 | Twitter Celebrates RR's Thumping Win Over SRH

Rajasthan Royals may not have defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad since 2015 but in their last game at home in Jaipur, they put on a clinic to win by seven wickets and stay alive in the tournament.

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.

Rajasthan though came back in the game with a flurry of wickets towards the end overs to keep them 160/8.

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.

Though Hyderabad dismissed both of them, Sanju Samson saw them home with ample time to spare.

Ashton Turner was the most relieved man as he finally managed to score a run and break his rut of ducks.
