IPL 2020 SRH beat RR Highlights : Manish Pandey’s knock help Sunrisers beat Rajasthan Royals

In Dream11 IPL 2020, Manish Pandey smashed eight sixes in a blistering 83 after Jason Holder made an instant impact with the ball as Sunrisers Hyderabad kept themselves in the race for IPL play-offs with an eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals here on Thursday.

Pandey and Vijay Shankar (52) stitched an unbroken 140-run partnership after Holder led a disciplined bowling display to restrict Rajasthan Royals to 154 for six.

Playing his first match of the tournament, Holder (3/33) came up with an impressive bowling effort while also affecting a run out to destabilise the RR innings. Rashid Khan (1/20) and Vijay Shankar (1/15) picked a wicket each.

During his unbeaten 47-ball knock, Pandey hit four balls to the fence and eight over it, while Shankar struck six boundaries.

The duo played intelligently in a must-win game for the Sunrisers.

With the win, Sunrisers moved up to the fifth spot, while the Royals were pushed down to seventh.

The Sunrisers’ chase was off to the worst possible start with skipper David Warner (4) giving away his wicket to Jofra Archer once again in the very first over. The Barbadian-born English pacer then got rid of Jonny Bairstow (10) in his second over.

With the dangerous openers back in the dugout, Pandey made full use of the field restrictions in the first six overs. He targeted young Kartik Tyagi, smashing the right-arm medium pacer for three boundaries and two sixes.

Pandey survived an lbw scare in the ninth over. He continued to pick the Rajasthan bowlers with Shankar holding fort at the other end.

Eventually the all-rounder, too, found his mojo, hitting back-to-back fours off leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal in the 11 over. He also hit Archer for three successive boundaries.

Earlier, Sunrisers, who were struggling at the penultimate spot in the points table with only three wins from nine outings, opted to bowl after winning the toss at the Dubai International Stadium.

For RR, Sanju Samson (36 off 26 balls) was the top scorer.

Put in to bat, Robin Uthappa looked in rampaging form, hitting the first four and six of the innings. He quickly raced to 19 off 13 balls.

However, his time in the middle was short-lived. After Ben Stokes (30) hit Holder for back-to-back boundaries in the fourth over, the West Indies skipper effected Uthappa’s run out as the Indian was late to turn back at the non-striker’s end.

The powerplay overs yielded 47 runs, including six fours and a maximum, for the loss of one wicket.

The big-hitting Stokes was dropped on 17 in the eighth over by Shankar off a Rashid delivery. Alongside Samson, he kept the scoreboard ticking.

A 56-run stand between the two was broken in the 12th over by Holder. Samson, who had reached his highest score since the 85 against Kings XI Punjab in RR’s second match of the tournament, was bowled by a slow off-cutter, after pulling the previous delivery over midwicket for a huge six.

Stokes’ stay came to an end when the World Cup winning all-rounder was bowled by Rashid in the beginning of the 13th over, with the Sunrisers bowlers making a strong comeback in the middle overs. RR then lost wickets at regular intervals.

Jos Buttler, too, fell quickly as he was sent back by Shankar in the 16th over with skipper Steve Smith (19) also failing to make an impact.

SRH wins by 8 wickets
Fifty for Shankar too

Done and dusted from SRH. Short from Tyagi and Vijay Shankar pulls this to the fence. The chase is done and Shankar brings up his fifty too. SRH finish with 156/2 after 18.1 overs

150 up for RR

Stokes bowls the 18th over. SRH should look to end this quickly and improve their NRR. And almost on cue, Pandey nails a gorgeous six over midwicket. Memorable innings this, from Pandey. RR-152/2 after 18 overs; need more 3 from 12 balls


RR-140/2 after 17 overs; need more 15 from 18 balls

Strategic Timeout taken

First over mid-off, then mid-on and then over the straight boundary – Vijay Shankar is doing some insane things against a bowler like Jofra Archer. The all-rounder is finally back among runs; moves to 43*. SRH-141/2 after 16 overs; need more 24 from 24 balls

Last 5 overs remaining

Tewatia comes in. Excellent batting from Shankar-Pandey to keep SRH’s chase in comfortable hands. SRH-118/2 after 15 overs; need more 37 from 30 balls

100 runs partnership for Manish Pandey-Vijay Shankar


Gopal into his final over and bowls a tight one. This has been a toothless bowling performance from RR, barring Archer. SRH-113/2 after 14 overs; need more 42 from 36 balls

100 comes up for RR

Tewatia continues as SRH comfortably to bring up the 100. Apart Archer, RR don’t seem to have a wicket-taking option. Pandey ends the over with a straight six. SRH-108/2 after 13 overs; need more 47 from 42 balls

Archer restricts the flow of runs

Archer brought back in the 12th. And immediately the runs go down- just three runs at the end of it. RR-97/2 after 12 overs; need more 58 from 48 balls

Expensive from RR

Gopal continues and they loot 15 from this one. Two of the most gorgeous off-drives you may see against a spinner coming off Vijay Shankar’s blade there. SRH-94/2 after 11 overs; need more 61 from 54 balls


Tewatia continues. While Pandey is going at a strike rate of 170-plus, Vijay Shankar has taken 18 balls for his 10 runs. For now, all’s well with the chase. SRH-79/2 after 10 overs


Gopal continues. Starts with a full one to Shankar who plays it to long on for a single. A bit short and drifting in from Gopal as this one hits Pandey’s pad first. They go upstairs but the impact is outside off. A single next ball brings up his fifty, off just 28 balls. Five sixes in that already. What an innings this has turned out to be. SRH-76/2 after 9 overs

Fifty for Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey has played a little gem here. Takes just 28 balls to record this very important half-century. Three fours and five huge sixes there.

Fifty stand for Pandey-Shankar

Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar brings up a 50-run stand for the third wicket. It’s the 10th fifty plus stand for SRH in IPL 2020.

Another huge over for SRH

Pandey is sending the pacers all around the park. Kartik Tyagi under the cosh in the last over of the Powerplay. 18 runs come off the over. Two sixes down the ground from Pandey. Shreyas Gopal brought on in the 7th over as RR look to restore parity. SRH-62/2 after 7 overs

50 comes up for SRH; End of Powerplay

SRH-58/2 after 6 overs; need more 97 from 84 balls


Ben Stokes comes into the attack, and is dealt with by Manish Pandey who hits him for a four and a glorious six. Searching for his line and length there, Stokes. Ends the over with 13 runs. Good, productive over for SRH. SRH-41/2 after 5 overs


SRH-27/2 after 4 overs; need more 128 from 96 balls


Archer to continue. Watch out for the speed gun, folks. Starts with a couple of dots to Pandey before the sneak a tight single to mid-on. And he beats Bairstow for pace-149kmph to be precise. Archer is on song here as Vijay Shankar takes guard. SRH-16/2 after 3 overs

Archer gets Bairstow now

Archer!! He gets one to nip one back in at 149 kmph, good enough to breach Bairstow’s defences.


Ankit Rajpoot to bowl the second over. Starts with a half volley that is dispatched for four by Bairstow. A short ball is then top-edged for a six as the chase is underway. 11 from that over. SRH-15/1 after 2 overs; need more 140 from 18 overs

Great start from RR

Jofra Archer gets David Warner. And he continues his dominance over the left-hander with a peach. He gets one to bounce a bit from length, squares Warner and Stokes in second slip takes a good, diving catch. Manish Pandey walks out. SRH-4/1 after 1 overs; need 151 from 19 overs

Warner falls for 4

And Warner’s gone! Test match stuff, this. Archer, with two slips in place, squares up Warner and Stokes does the rest.

We are underway with RR’s chase!

Bairstow and Warner walk out for SRH; Archer to start proceedings for RR.


RR-154/6 after 20 overs


Holder to bowl the 19th, and this has turned out to be an excellent choice. Gets rid of Smith first ball and then removes Parag on the third ball. So we have Tewatia and Archer at the crease, both coming out in the same over. A very successful over.  RR-141/6 after 19 overs

RR lose skipper Smith cheaply

Smith is gone! That was in the slot from Jason Holder and Smith swings hard, but holes out to Manish Pandey at long-on. Rahul Tewatia is the new man in.


Riyan Parag charges and goes after T Natarajan for a flurry of big shots. A total of 16 runs came off the over – the most expensive over of Rajasthan Royals’ innings. Two more overs to go. RR-134/4 after 18 overs


Sandeep Sharma returns. Just one over remains in his spell. He must be credited with stifling Stokes early with his nagging line. He hits his straps early and concedes just five runs. No boundaries in sight for RR. RR-118/4 after 17 overs


Vijay Shankar returns and makes an impact! He saw Buttler advancing, drops this back of length delivery slightly wide and Buttler slices this straight to Nadeem at point. RR seem to have lost all the momentum here. Riyan Parag is the new bastman in, and opens his account straightaway. Eight runs and a wicket from that over. RR-113/4 after 16 overs

First wicket for Shankar of the night!

Shankar strikes. Back of length and outside off, Jos Buttler slices this straight into the hands of Shahbaz Nadeem at point. Disappointing innings from the Englishman!

100 comes up for RR

The pair of Buttler and Smith add 19 from 17 balls as they look to rebuild Rajasthan. With five overs to go, RR are batting on 105. RR-105/3 after 15 overs


Shahbaz Nadeem into the attack in the 14th over, and starts with five singles before Smith slices an overpitched ball through the off-side for a four. Time to get a move on, Rajasthan. RR-99/3 after 14 overs


Rashid into his third over, and he strikes first ball! Stokes is put out of his misery here as Steve Smith joins Buttler in the middle. Run rate here is less than 7; RR is quickly falling behind in this match. Four runs and a wicket from this one. RR-90/3 after 13 overs

Rashid removes Stokes

Rashid strikes! Ben Stokes’ ordeal is over. He has played all over that one from Rashid and is bowled. RR may have dug themselves a hole here.


Holder into his third over here. Stokes goes aerial first ball but doesn’t get much distance. Luckily for him, this evades the men in deep. Samson though finds his timing with a gorgeous pulled six, but Holder has his revenge next ball. Samson departs after flattering to deceive, not for the first time. RR-86/2 after 12 overs

Holder gets the breakthrough

Excellent comeback from Holder. After being hit for a six, responds with an off-cutter and Samson, trying to make room and hit through the off side, is beaten and bowled.


Shankar to bowl. Starts well with a couple of dots to Stokes, who is still looking to get his timing right. He is hanging in though. A very quiet over this as SRH are taking control of this innings. RR-77/1 after 11 overs


Rashid into his second over now. Starts with a dot, and concede a run every ball thereafter. SRH won’t mind this though, as just six come off this over. Rashid has hit his straps really well here. RR-74/1 after 10 overs

Strategic Timeout taken

Natarajan continues. Starts with a short ball to Samson which he pulls for a four. They score off every ball of this over and collect 11. That’s the way to go. Stokes looking a bit better in this over. RR-68/1 after 9 overs


Rashid Khan comes on and Stokes, trying to break the shackles, tries a reverse sweep second ball. Doesn’t get hold of that but luckily for him, the ball falls short of the sweeper Samad. Stokes goes for a big one but doesn’t get hold of this too, but a running Vijay Shankar grasses a fairly regulation chance. RR-57/1 after 8 overs

Fifty comes up for RR

T Natrajan comes on. Starts with a dot before Samson gets consecutive twos and a single. He is looking good so far, does Samson. He is keeping his shape, not looking flustered or in a tearing hurry. He has outscored Stokes with conventional strokes. Just six from this over. RR-53/1 after 7 overs

End of Powerplay

RR-47/1 after 6 overs

Back to back boundaries from Samson

After a series off poor run, Sanju Samson finally shows some composure. He hits Sandeep Sharma for consecutive boundaries and both came from the middle of his blade. RR-43/1 after 5 overs

Holder on the money right on the debut

A very eventful over from Holder. 4,4,W read the first three balls. Stokes swings the first one to the leg-side for a four and follows it with a poorly-executed lap that fortunately goes for a four. Then comes the Uthappa run-out. Samson is the new man in. RR-33/1 after 4 overs

Uthappa run out!

Uthappa dismissed after a terrible mixup. Stokes drops this one from Holder at his feet and takes a step, Uthappa takes it as a signal for a run and comes too far. Holder, in one neat pick-up and throw, sends back the right-hander at the non-striker’s end. He was batting so well, Uthappa.


Sharma continues. A very productive over this for RR, and Uthappa in particular. Gets a six and a four there. This pitch looks good, and so does Uthappa. RR-22/0 after 3 overs

Batting masterclass from Uthappa

Jason Holder continue the attack for SRH from the other end. After four short delivery, Uthappa tries to take charge here. First he plays an aerial shot towards the mid-wicket region for a double and follows it up with a cracking boundary towards the cover region. RR-9/0 after 2 overs


Sandeep Sharma begins the proceedings for SRH. Starts with a back of length delivery outside off, which Uthappa steers to point and takes off for a single to get the scorecard moving. Uthappa flicks the last ball in the air but it falls well short of deep square leg. Neat start from SRH. RR-3/0 after 1 over

Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes out to bat

Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes are out to bat against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Sandeep Sharma begins the attack for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Toss Results

SRH wins toss and opts to bowl first

Smith: I was looking to bat. We have been playing IPL for a long time. It was a good win the other night (against CSK). We are heading in the right direction, playing good cricket. You got to play well to make it to the finals and you need to peak at the right time. Same team.



Warner: We are gonna bowl. I don’t think too much is going to change. The last game here, it held up a bit more in the first half of the game. It came on quite nice in the back end. We just have to wait and see. It’s alright, we get another game today (when he was told that his team haven’t been successful while chasing). He’s (KW) done something to his quad, that’s unfortunate. We have the big man Holder coming in. Nadeem is in for Thampi. It’s been tough not to include him (Holder) in the team before. Things have changed and we have to try something different. I am always nice and calm. After a couple of losses, I was a bit edgy, now have had time to relax and gather my thoughts. It’s quite difficult in the bubble. For us, it’s about coming out and putting our best foot forward.







Final preparation are done!

5:46pm: IPL 2020 RR vs SRH LIVE Score Updates: Steve Smith vs David Warner in race for IPL 2020 playoffs, toss at 7pm

How things stand so far!

The race for the IPL 2020 Playoffs have heated up, especially with KKR’s heavy 8-wicket loss last night to Royal Challengers Bangalore and has now thrown open the race for the fourth spot in the IPL 2020 table.

As Rajasthan Royals face Sunrisers Hyderabad tonight, Steve Smith’s men have a chance to displace KKR at the position.


Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Rajasthan Royals have had their fair share of frustrations through the season. They showed lots of promise in the early days, even pulled off unlikely heists, yet both find themselves languishing in the bottom-half of the table.

The common factor between the two teams has been their inability to close out games that they were in control of. SRH skipper David Warner vehemently expressed his frustration after their latest loss to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Super Over. SRH thereafter slipped to their third successive loss, still stuck on six points.

Rajasthan, meanwhile, picked up a handy seven-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings a couple of days ago despite a familiar top-order collapse. Steve Smith played second fiddle to Jos Buttler who drove them home on a tricky wicket that wasn’t easy to bat on



Buttler vs Rashid- Battle to watch out for 

Jos Buttler’s virtuoso performance lifted the Royals against CSK as they won an important match and with the Englishman settling into the middle order well, RR now look a much better side.

Rashid Khan will once again be the crucial cog in the SRH wheel when it comes to bowling. The Afghan talisman will have to pick wickets for his team in this match because the Royals have a good depth in their batting lineup who can hurt SRH’s chances if they stay till the end.

Next 5 days will be most crucial

Playoffs chances for SRH and RR

If SRH wins they keep their Playoffs live or otherwise they lose. RR wins – they can go on 4th in the points table.

Next Five Days can seal the fate of IPL 2020 Playoffs for most of the teams –

  • Oct 19th CSK vs RR – CSK is almost out after losing to RR.
  • Oct 20th KXIP vs DC – DC lost. KXIP survived with 3rd consecutive victory
  • Oct 21st RCB vs KKR – RCB won, they almost have 1 foot in the playoff door. KKR with 10 points from 10 games will struggle.
  • Oct 22nd RR vs SRH – If SRH wins they keep their Playoffs live or otherwise they lose. RR wins – they can go on 4th in the points table.
  • Oct 23rd CSK vs MI – If MI wins they almost qualify for playoffs, if CSK lose they will be completely out.
  • Oct 24th KKR vs DC – DC wins they qualify for playoffs, KKR lose it will further dent their hopes.
  • Oct 25th KXIP vs SRH – Most crucial playoff game. Can seal the fate of both the teams.

Bairstow will be eyeing for the big score!

The England wicketkeeper-batsman has had starts in the last two games, scoring 36 vs KKR and 23 vs CSK, but could not convert them into a big score.

If Jonny Bairstow sets the ball rolling at the top with his batting heroics, SRH will be in with a chance to post a formidable total or chase down a target.

14:32: Can RR’s spin duo of Shreyas Gopal-Rahul Tewatia do Yuzi Chahal?

He had just one wicket to show for his efforts, but Shreyas Gopal’s bowling efforts – 4-0-14-1 – against CSK helped RR keep the things tight. The leg-spinner was ably supported by a fellow leggie, Rahul Tewatia, who picked a wicket conceding just 18 runs in 4 overs in RR’s last game. While RR will seek another such performance from the duo, they will also be looking for another sensational Tewatia show with the bat.

13:40: All eye on the two captains — RR’s Steve Smith and SRH’s David Warner

David Warner

David Warner did not open the innings during his side’s last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but almost guided his team home with an unbeaten 47 before the game headed to a Super Over. The SRH skipper is currently the leading run-getter for his team and he will be eager to continue his contribution with the bat and power his team to a win.

Steve Smith

While he did not find run-scoring easy against CSK, Steve Smith made sure he stays put and gives Buttler a good company to guide RR to a victory. The RR skipper will be looking for more runs and more dominant performance as his team faces SRH.48

13:00: Can Jonny Bairstow regain his form for SRH today?

If Jonny Bairstow sets the ball rolling at the top with his batting heroics, SRH will be in with a chance to post a formidable total or chase down a target. The England wicketkeeper-batsman has had starts in the last two games, scoring 36 vs KKR and 23 vs CSK, but could not convert them into a big score. However, Bairstow has delivered for SRH in the past and hence, the side will bank on him as it faces RR.

12:30 pm: Approaching Milestones

  • Sanju Samson needs 55 runs to complete 2500 IPL runs.
  • Robin Uthappa requires 1 four to complete 450 IPL runs.
  • Sandeep Sharma is a wicket away from completing 100 IPL wickets.
  • Kane Williamson requires 1 six and 17 runs respectively to complete 50 IPL sixes and 1500 IPL runs.

11:26 am: Some training pictures and videos from Rajasthan Royals and Sunrises Hyderabad camp

10:30 am: IPL 2020: Injured Williamson might not play, then who comes in?

It is most unlikely that Williamson will feature in the crucial fixture. SRH will probably go for Mohammad Nabi. The franchise had dropped a hint on its official Twitter handle. It posted a picture the Afghanistan all-rounder and wrote: “Warning: Big hits from The President incoming”.

09:50 am: RR vs SRH in Dream11 IPL 2020 : Fantasy Tips for Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match

Fantasy Tip 1 – Kane Williamson is not looking good. He is likely to miss this game because of an adductor injury so don’t include him in your Dream11 IPL 2020 team

Fantasy Tip 2 – David Warner will again be opening. Your top order today should only have foreign cricketers – Warner, Bairstow, Buttler, Steven Smith, Ben Stokes – can’t drop any of these

Fantasy Tip 3 – Rahul Tewatia should be in as he is the most impactful player.

Fantasy Tip 4 – Take Mohammad Nabi in the team as he is a Dark Horse who can really give you great points. Nabi is likely to replace Williamson

Fantasy Tip 5 – Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, Natarajan should be your fast bowlers & Rashid Khan along with Nabi as spin options

Dream11 IPL 2020 :Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (RR vs SRH)

Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Rajasthan Royals have had their fair share of frustrations through the season. They showed lots of promise in the early days, even pulled off unlikely heists, yet both find themselves languishing in the bottom-half of the table.

The common factor between the two teams has been their inability to close out games that they were in control of. SRH skipper David Warner vehemently expressed his frustration after their latest loss to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Super Over. SRH thereafter slipped to their third successive loss, still stuck on six points.

Rajasthan, meanwhile, picked up a handy seven-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings a couple of days ago despite a familiar top-order collapse. Steve Smith played second fiddle to Jos Buttler who drove them home on a tricky wicket that wasn’t easy to bat on. The move to have Buttler in the middle order seems to be working for RR. However, it’s the top order of Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa and Sanju Samson that needs to get amongst the runs to push for victories.

Can RR get across SRH now or will Warner’s team turn the tables on RR ?
