Jos Buttler is named Player of the Match for his superb ton. Right! That's all from this game. However, don't forget that it is super Sunday and it is the double-header day. Switch tab and enjoy the action between Delhi and Punjab. It is goodbye from here.

Earlier in the day, on the back of a scintillating century from Buttler and a fine knock from skipper Samson, Rajasthan posted a mammoth score for Hyderabad. It was a poor bowling show from Hyderabad. New skipper Williamson finished the 4 overs of Rashid by the 11th over and it turned out poor call as Rajasthan batters played out him calmly and went bang, bang against the others. Apart from him, all the bowlers were hammered in all parts of the ground and eventually the total that they conceded was too big for their batters.

Rajasthan didn't start well as their bowlers were hit to all parts by Bairstow and Pandey in the Powerplay. However, once Mustafizur got the first wicket, the bowlers put pressure on the other batters. Tewatia got the big wicket of Bairstow and the game was more or less won for them then only. Tyagi did a superb job in his 4 overs while Rahman and Morris bagged 3-fers to help the team seal the deal and bag 2 important points.

Chasing the total, Hyderabad started really well as the openers, Bairstow and Pandey scored 57 in the Powerplay. However, both fell in back-to-back overs, leaving the side reeling. After that, they failed to find the fence and as the pressure got big, they kept losing wickets regularly to fall well short of the target. Their idea of leaving out Warner and playing the spinning all-rounder didn't go in their favor as Nabi bowled just one over and he couldn't do much with the bat either.

An easy win for Rajasthan here! After their batters put on a massive show, it was always going to be tough for the opposition. Hyderabad did start well but once the opening stand was broken, the run chase lost the track completely and it is a comfortable victory for Rajasthan.

Mustafizur Rahman to Rashid Khan, OUT! CAUGHT! Another one bites the dust Rashid departs for 2-ball duck. Can't really blame him though. A slower, fuller ball around off, Rashid clears his front leg and tried to go big. But he cannot clear the fielder at long off. Morris takes a simple catch. This is getting over a bit too early here.

Chris Morris to Kedar Jadhav, Short ball around middle, Jadhav pulls it to the left of deep mid-wicket. Parag does well to move that side for a single.

Chris Morris is back on. 2-0-18-1 from him so far.

Second Strategic Time Out! The equation is getting tough for Hyderabad here. They need someone to hit a few lusty blows but another wicket here will force them completely on the back foot. Samad is out in the middle and if he can hit a few biggies in the next couple of overs, things can get spiced up a bit. Otherwise, Rajasthan are going to seal the deal.
