IPL 2018, SRH vs RR: Hosts beat Rahane's men by 9 wickets

Playing their first home game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, Dhawan and Williamson did not allow the Rajasthan bowlers to dominate and smashed them all over the park.

WICKET! Wriddhiman Saha departs early as hosts lose an early wicket in the run chase.

Delhi Daredevils on the other hand has a fairly balanced team on paper.

Given the quality of bowling and batting on paper, Mumbai Indians is a tough side to beat.

Solider killed in ongoing encounter in Kashmir's Kulgam
Three civilians and one soldier have been killed in an ongoing encounter at Kulgam in south Kashmir that started on Tuesday night. Police sources said that clashes between a group of Lashkar-e-Taiba militants and security forces broke out on Wednesday morning.

Sunrisers Hyderabad now need just 12 runs to win from 42 balls. But the problem for MI was the inconsistency in their lengths at the death overs with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman and Bumrah being tonked for sixes. Delhi's batting is not that strong either with lack of experieneced names effecting the middle order.

"Getting a good start in the first six overs, that was the key, and we got that", Rahane had said after the match. The challenge for Mumbai, however, will be against the variety in the bowling lineup of SRH. Gopal, however, tried to pace the innings but was sent packing in the last over by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Rashid Khan's fast leg-breaks and googlies are still a mystery for most batsmen, while Shakib Al Hasan with his orthodox left-arm spin is miserly on most days.

Earlier, the Sunrisers produced a disciplined bowling display to restrict the Royals to a paltry 125 for 9. The pair cruised through the run chase, allowing Hyderabad to romp home with 25 balls to spare and 9 wickets in hand - clearly proving detractors wrong who questioned how the team would do without their charismatic captain.

India's Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane will be leading Rajasthan in Smith's absence while New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will captain the Hyderabad franchise. The duo hit boundaries easily and scored the runs in quick time. He has proved to be extremely consistent with the bat over the past year or so and will hope to provide stability to SRH's middle-order this season.

Hardik, who had twisted his ankle in the first innings, returned on the field to bowl against CSK and is expected to be available for the match on Thursday.

Rajasthan Royals team returning to IPL after 2 years of suspension had to reorganise their team and change their pre-plans as Steve Smith of Australia who was going first choice of captaincy had been banned by BCCI after ball-tampering scandal in South Africa tour of Australia. Even if the set Sanju Samson took the charge, Williamson always seemed to be a step further introducing the best of his bowlers to force him to work his way for runs. After passing two seasons, from IPL 11 they have started their journey in IPL once again. Mumbai will persist with their four pacemen on the Hyderabad wicket which will assist seamers. Hardik Pandya played his heart out but his ankle injury could be a cause of worry for skipper Rohit. If he is forced to sit out, Saurabh Tiwary may be drafted in.
