Rahul has been very positive. He has hit two sixes off the spinners so far and that has helped SRH get back to a good run-rate. However, Hyderabad need a lot more hitting as they are now facing an asking rate exceeding 10 an over. Now, Rahul had to keep that going and ensure that SRH get through. Rahul got a life as he hit a skier but it was away from the fielder, who could not get it. However, he then lost his wicket.  Live Updates: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) vs Delhi Daredevils (DD) IPL 2015 Match 13

SRH were fielding first and then DD scored 167. It could have been a lot more as Shreyas Iyer and JP Duminy scored fifties. But then they were hit by wickets and they could not score a lot more.
