Dhawan, Williamson Pilot Hyderabad to 9 Wickets Victory Over Rajasthan

How do I watch the Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians match live? It was then that Dwayne Bravo's innings really took off, smashing 20 runs in the next two overs of Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah. His Smart Economy Rate of 4.89 between overs six and 15 was second-best to Sunrisers' MVP of 2016, Mustafizur Rahman, whose economy rate was pegged at 4.66. The batting department, however, looks pretty strong, with the middle order resting on the responsible shoulders of youngsters Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, the Pandya brothers and Kieron Pollard. He picked the lone wicket of Shreyas Gopal and conceded 30 runs. The challenge for Mumbai, however, will be against the variety in the bowling lineup of SRH. However, once he fell off the bowling of Shakib Al Hasan (2/23), caught at deep extra-cover by Rashid Khan, the visitors innings crumbled. SRH put up a dominant performance against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their first game while MI suffered a narrow 1-wicket loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at home.

The tone was set in the very first over when Williamson, having stuck the opposition in, moved smartly from mid-off to swoop on the ball and score a direct hit, catching D'Arcy Short just short of his crease.

Dhawan, playing crisply off the back foot as is his wont, crunched Ben Stokes through point to reach his half-century off a mere 33 deliveries, putting the track in perspective even as Rajasthan went too short and paid a heavy price. Though Hyderabad started poorly, losing their opener Wriddhiman Saha (5), but after that there was no looking back as Dhawan and skipper Williamson (36 not out) guided it to a comfortable victory with over four overs remaining. It is going to be a long season but it is going to be an exciting one. However, there is no breathing space for him as Sunrisers will host three-time champions Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium on Thursday. Without David Warner, their highest run-getter in each of the previous three seasons, it was a fearless call from new Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson to field first and his bowlers justified that call in style. Hales was being fed balls on one of the training wickets from coach Moody where he had to adapt and adjust in order to clear the ropes, which he did consistently.

"Saha also showed intent from the start". IPL's costliest player English all-rounder Ben Stokes flopped as well besides Jos Buttler.

The pace trio of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Billy Stanlake and Siddarth Kaul will complement the wily spin duo of left-armer Shakib-Al-Hasan and leg-spinner Rashid Khan. He will look to provide his side with the ideal start once again against the strong bowling attack of the Mumbai Indians.
