IPL18 Match 4: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs. Rajasthan Royals

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals were in the news for all the wrong reasons. However all the demons seemed to have disappeared at least for SRH despite Williamson saying that David Warner will be missed. If their bowling was good then their batting was excellent. Questions were raised about whether Williamson would be able to play T20 properly but there is no reason why there is any need to hit every ball out of the park. Dhawan batted extremely well. All Williamson had to do was to provide Dhawan support. Once again Williamson used the resources he had well.

The big compliment for SRH though is their bowlers. They used five bowlers and all of them bowled well. They had Yusuf Pathan but he was not used. This is exactly what my thinking was when I proposed the addition of adding another all-rounder by RCB. A team does not need most of its players to bowl but it helps. SRH has the best bowling performance so far and deservedly so. The first match is a far harbringer of the finals but it looks like Rajasthan Royals will miss Steve Smith more than SRH will miss David Warner.
