Commentary

Rajasthan won by 4 wkts | Sunrisers Hyderabad Vs Rajasthan Royals Live Score, 4th T20 Match

That ends the double header, the 1st of this tournament. Tomorrow is another double header. Join us as Bangalore lock horns with Mumbai in the first match of the day. For now, cheers and bye..
Rahane: 'When 3 wickets fell, I just wanted to stay there. We needed just one partnership, Binny played really well. He has improved massively. The pitch was doing a lot for the new ball. Our bowlers did very well, it wasn't easy to bat in the first 6 overs. They bowled really well. Nice to get going with a victory.'
Rahane is the MoM
Watson: 'We executed our plans well, the quality of their bowlers meant that chasing 134 was always tough. Rahane and Binny played really well to take us home. It was a nice wicket, the outfield was incredible, credit to the staff over here.'
Dhawan: '150 would have been a very good score here. We were short by 20 or 30 runs. That cost us the game. In the starting, the wicket was double paced, the ball swung as well. Unfortunately, me and Warner did not carry on and get to fifties. We had confidence of defending the total though. Last year, we have won many low scoring games. The guys did well to take the game to the last over. Our batsmen have to make big totals for the bowlers.'
Steyn pats Binny on the head, nice little moment there. Rajasthan seemed to have no answers to the prowess of Steyn, Bhuvneshwar and Ishant with the new ball. They lost three wickets early, Rahane looked scratchy, but he and Binny started to repair the early damage. Rahane fell after getting to his fifty, Rajasthan lost a bit of momentum towards the end but Binny ensured that he stayed until the end. Hyderabad fought hard on the field, but they just did not have a big score to defend.

no run, short of a length and angling away, Binny was backing away and can't reach to the ball
