Scandal-hit Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets in the Indian Premier League (IPL) Eliminator here at the Ferozeshah Kotla Wednesday to enter Qualifier 2.
With a small target of 133, Rajasthan Royals had a jittery chase losing wickets at regular intervals but Australian middle-order batsman Brad Hodge (54 not out) made sure that the 2008 champions reached home with four balls to spare.
Sunrisers had scored 132/7 in their 20 overs and in reply the Royals made 135/6 in 19.2 overs.
Rajasthan took off brilliantly with skipper Rahul Dravid (12) hitting three exquisite boundaries to start their chase. However, he edged an Ishant Sharma delivery to backward point in the second over.
Opener Ajinkya Rahane (18) and dependable batsman Shane Watson (24) carried on little by little.
However, a caught and bowled by spinner Amit Mishra and a superb catch on the boundary by Darren Sammy brought an end to Rahane and Watson, respectively.
Royals were put in more than a spot of bother when they lost four wickets in a span of seven runs, putting the brakes on their scoring rate. They went down from 53/1 to 57/5 in four overs.
Nevertheless, Sanju Samson (10) and Hodge, who hit five huge sixes and two boundaries, steadied the ship with a 45-run sixth wicket partnership. ...
