Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad full match replay
Thanks to brilliance from two Aussies, James Faulkner and Shane Watson the Rajasthan Royals have managed to upset the Sunrisers Hyderabad with an 8 wicket victory at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur. Sangakkara won the toss and elected to bat first hoping to put some pressure on the home team who defend better at their home ground. James Faulkner and Ajit Chandila hunted in pairs and at the 5th over Sunrisers Hyderabad were down to 29/6. Darren Sammy along with Amit Mishra built a partnership that took SRH above the 100 mark. Thanks to heroics from Dale Steyn in the depth overs the Sunrisers managed to finish at 144/9. 

In Rajasthan's innings, Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane walked out to open the innings instead of the usual duo of Rahane and Watson. Rahane soon departed and Watson walked in. Dravid and Watson put on a partnership that took the royals to a position where their current rate got less than the required. After Dravid's dismissal Stuart Binny came and gave support to Watson, who tore apart the Sunrisers bowling lineup with a share of luck from the heaven. The game was finished in the 17th over and Watson missed his century by 2 runs. The Man of the match was awarded to James Faulkner who bowled beautifully to fetch 5 wickets just giving 20 runs in his allotted four overs.
