Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag combined to take Rajasthan Royals home in Match 26 of IPL 2020 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Tewatia yet again showed his T20 batting prowess, coming in to bat at No 7 along side Parag who played a good knock in his comeback game for his franchise.

Winning the toss, David Warner asked Rajasthan to bowl first but the team got off to a bad start, losing Jonny Bairstow early on in the innings. Warner played a good knock of 58 and Manish Pandey scored his second IPL fifty. Kane Williamson and Priyam Garg played cameos to take Hyderabad to 158/4 at the end of 20 overs on a difficult batting pitch.

RR started off badly, losing their top three - Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Steve Smith - inside the powerplay. Rashid Khan then displayed his magic with wickets of Robin Uthappa and Sanju Samson, pushing RR on back foot in the chase. However, Parag and Tewatia came together to see the team through with some outstanding hitting at the backend.

With the win, RR have jumped to 6th from 7th in the points table and they have also bettered their NRR. SRH continue to be on No 5 on the table.
