  • IPL 2018 Rajasthan Hyderabad look to overcome sudden loss of captains Smith Warner

SRH cruised to a 9-wicket victory with 25 balls to spare.

As the Match 6 Scheduled between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils at 8.00 PM today as mentioned from Sawai Mansingh Stadium [‎Jaipur, Rajasthan, India].

Much like Sunrisers, Rajasthan Royals have also been severely affected by the ball-tampering scandal with captain Steve Smith also being stripped of his leadership role and banned from this year's tournament.

The two teams met with contrasting fortunes in their opening games. But it was the only blip in what turned out to be a ideal chase to a below-par total.

The fact that Sunrisers bowlers conceded only 12 fours and no sixes against Rajasthan outfit in the first game is a testimony to their efficacy. A need for introspection would have gripped Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir, captains of both sides, after early setbacks.

The only bright spot in the Rajasthan innings was 23-year-old Kerala-born Sanju Samson. But after that wicket, new batsman Sanju Samson (49) and opener Ajinkya Rahane (13) forged a crucial 46-run partnership to steady their team's ship.

Only three others managed to reach double-digit scores.

At the moment, there are only a few chinks in the armour for SRH while MI, disrupted by injury, have a problem or two to sort with the bowling line up along with sorting the batting order to utilize batsmen to their best abilities. After letting go of Henriques, SRH made up for the loss by roping in Shakib Al Hasan and Carlos Brathwaite. They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar with his superb skill sets of seam and swing, Billy Stanlake for raw pace and Siddarth Kaul to hit the deck.

Wriddhiman Saha might be given another chance to open the innings against Mumbai, however, if he fails once again, we might see him drop down the order for the remaining games.

In reply, Sunrisers completely took the surface out of the equation as Dhawan and Williamson's 121-run second-wicket stand snuffed out any inkling of hope Royals may have had of salvaging the match. Samson walked in at No. 3 and began with two pleasing back-to-back boundaries off Bhuvneshwar Kumar - first a punch on the up through cover and then a wristy flick to bisect midwicket and mid-on - but couldn't quite maintain the tempo after the Powerplay that fetched 48.

On the other hand, having lost the tournament opener to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) narrowly, Mumbai Indians will aim to attain momentum in this crucial clash, and start earning points. As far as bowling options are concerned - Jaydev Unadkat is a decent Indian enabler, who I've had from the start.

"We were 50-1 and me and Sanju chose to back our intent, but we lost too many wickets".
