IPL 2018: Shikhar Dhawan Shines As SunRisers Hyderabad Beat Rajasthan Royals Comprehensively

Ajinkya Rahane

The fourth match of Indian Premier League is between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals.

Wriddhiman Saha might be given another chance to open the innings against Mumbai, however, if he fails once again, we might see him drop down the order for the remaining games.

Hyderabad, led by Kane Williamson in the absence of David Warner who is serving a one-year ban due to a ball tampering incident, hardly broke sweat during their emphatic nine-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals in their opening match. A need for introspection would have gripped Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir, captains of both sides, after early setbacks.

The Indian opener went on to score 77 off 57 balls as his captain Kane Williamson played second fiddle and supported him to chase down the target in 15.1 overs. Shikhar Dhawan's blazing form has continued, which is the biggest shot in the arm for the "Orange Army' apart from a bowling attack that looks potent on any surface".

Both teams would want to quickly erase the opening game from their memory, but they would do well to take learnings of deficiencies in that game and work towards fixing them.

It is obvious that Mumbai faces a daunting task to brush off its narrow defeat to Chennai Super Kings on home turf. Delhi's batting is not that strong either with lack of experieneced names effecting the middle order. However, it must be remembered that David Warner contributed 1500 runs in both the tournaments and was also a very inspirational captain who transformed an ordinary team into an nearly invincible squad of today. Even if the openers fail to get going, the "Indian" middle-order of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda is equally risky on its day. Also, with today's match played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur where Rajasthan has an overall record of winning nearly 72% of their matches will definitely start as favorites.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the best limited-overs bowlers in the world right now and will spearhead SRH's bowling attack for the rest of the season. The IPL record signing, Stokes has been struggling with injury and bowling with a shortened run-up.

Mohit Sharma and Mujeeb Ur Rahman picked two wickets each, while skipper Ravichandran Ashwin and spin partner Axar Patel claimed one each.

Rajasthan captain Ajinkya Rahane (13) and Sanju Samson (49), who top-scored for Rajasthan, then combined for 46 runs - their side's only meaningful partnership before the skipper was removed by Siddarth Kaul.

The Sunrisers line up may not look the most threatening on paper, but they do manage to get the job done without much of a flourish.
