SRH vs RR, IPL 2021: Jason Roy & Kane Williamson half-centuries help SRH beat RR by 7 wickets – Sanju Samson’s brilliant 82 off 57 balls went in vain as Jason Roy and Kane Williamson scored half-centuries to power Sunrisers Hyderabad to their only second win of the season and beat Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets.

Earlier, opting to bat, Rajasthan Royals were dealt an early blow, losing Evin Lewis in the second over. But Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal put together a 50-run stand to steady the ship. After Jaiswal fell for 36 off 23, Sanju went on to hammer consecutive 50 to take the Orange Cap and a valuable partnership of 84 with Mahipal Lomror. However, some fine death-overs bowling helped SRH restrict RR to 165 with Siddharth Kaul doing his best with 2/36.
