SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) finally got their revenge back against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 2020 as they beat them in the reverse fixture by 8 wickets. In the first meeting this year, Rajasthan Royals proved to be the better side. However, on Thursday, SunRisers Hyderabad got the better of them as they put on a great show in Dubai.
Winning the toss, SunRisers Hyderabad elected to bowl first. Rajasthan got off to a flyer of a start as Ben Stokes and Robin Uthappa looked deadly in the first couple of overs. However, SunRisers Hyderabad bounced back in the game and kept picking wickets at regular intervals in the game to restrict RR to 154-6. In response, SRH cruised to the target with 8 wickets in hand.
Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar emerged as the heroes of the victory as they played two superb knocks after Hyderabad lost early wickets in the second innings.
SunRisers Hyderabad Hilariously Troll Rajasthan Royals
After the win on the field, SunRisers Hyderabad won it off the field too with their hilarious sense of humour.

They took to Twitter and wrote, “Hey @Zomato, we’d like to place an order for one LAAAAARGE Hyderabadi Biryani. Location: One & Only Royal Mirage”

SRH Jump To The 5th Spot In The Points Table
With a grand win over Rajasthan, SunRisers Hyderabad have now gone on the fifth spot in the IPL 2020 points table. The race for the IPL 2020 playoffs is getting much more intense with games passing by. Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, and Royal Challengers Bangalore appear as the confirm entrant in the playoffs.
The battle, however, remains for the fourth and final spot as no team is completely out of the race from the playoffs. The next week will be extremely crucial in deciding the final four of the Indian Premier League 2020.
