Result: Sunrisers Hyderabad ease past Rajasthan Royals

Sunrisers Hyderabad keep alive their hopes of making the IPL knockout stages by beating Rajasthan Royals.

Sunrisers Hyderabad cruised to a seven-run victory over Rajasthan Royals to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Indian Premier League.

Eoin Morgan recorded a total of 68, while Shikhar Dhawan struck 54 runs as the Sunrisers posted a tally of 201-4 from their 20 overs.

The Royals were then dealt a blow when Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed early on, but an innings of 68 from Steve Smith gave them hope.

However, a late rally from James Faulkner, Sanju Samson and Chris Morris was not enough to inspire a win, as they finished on 194-7.
