Meanwhile, Sunday's encounter between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai turned out to be a perfect weekend watch.
After registering four consecutive loses in the ongoing season of IPL, RR produced a stunning run chase, beating SRH by 5 wickets and a delivery to spare at Dubai International Stadium.
Steve Smith's Royals were more or less written off as the team struggled at 78 for 5 at one stage, chasing 159 put up on the scoreboard by the Sunrisers Hyderabad. This were to change when new-found hero Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag came together to stitch a match-winning partnership of 85 for the sixth wicket to take their team home.
Parag brought up the winning runs with a 6 on the penultimate ball delivered by Khaleel Ahmed and complimented his crucial innings with Bihu dance on the cricket pitch.
