Shakib stars in Sunrisers win

Staff Correspondent | Update:

Dhawan and Williamson made 121 in the second wicket to lead Sunrisers to a win. AFPSunrisers Hyderabad bowlers restricted Rajasthan Royals to 125 for 9 to help the hosts net an easy nine-wicket victory in their Indian Premier League match on Monday.

Hyderabad's Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan bagged two conceding only 23 while fellow bowler Siddarth Kaul also claimed two to contain the Royals to a lowly score.

Barring top-scorer Sanju Samson who made 49, none of the Rajasthan batsman could make more than 20.

Sunrisers opener Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson then made 121 in the second wicket to lead the team to a win.

Man-of-the-match Dhawan's 77 came in 57 balls while his captain made 35 in 36 balls.
