Rajasthan Royals defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by five wickets in the match no. 26 of Indian Premier League 2020 to go to sixth position in the points tally.
Rahul Tewatia’s uncanny ability to win tricky games rescued Rajasthan Royals yet again as they eked out a five-wicket victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad to snap their four-match losing streak in the IPL on Sunday.
Tewatia, who became a household name with five sixes in an over against Kings XI Punjab, smashed an unbeaten 45 off 28 balls as Royals overhauled the 159-run target with a ball to spare.
Along with Riyan Parag (42 not out off 26 balls), Tewatia won the game in ‘Royals’ style keeping Steve Smith’s men in the mix after they were reduced to 78 for 5 in 12 overs.
Meanwhile, SRH remained at fifth position despite losing the game. They now have six points from seven games.
