IPL 2013 Eliminator Rajasthan vs Hyderabad Video Highlights
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), masters at choking the opposition, met its match in Rajasthan Royals at the Ferozeshah Kotla on Wednesday night.
Exorcising the ghosts of the spot fixing scandal that devastated its camp, Royals once again rode their self-belief to stay in the tournament, winning its Indian Premier League eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets, thanks to a sterling innings — a true game changer under the circumstances — from Brad Hodge.
An inspiring show by Darren Sammy, with his infectious energy sweeping the opposition off its feet, was the dominating factor in this low-scoring contest on a pitch that lacked the character much needed in this format.
All credit to Sammy for putting up a splendid fight. He made runs, took a sensational catch on the boundary and then bowled with imagination to raise SRH’s hopes.
A pity he erred in the final over when Royals needed ten to win. Two sixes by Hodge ended the contest
