IPL: Vintage SRH climb to playoff place


Sunrisers Hyderabad had been going through a lean patch of late as the team lost their previous two games to RCB and CSK respectively. But the Hyderabadi side made a sharp comeback in the game against table topper Rajasthan Royals today. 

In a close encounter in the Hyderabad International Stadium, SRH ended up winning the game by a slender margin of 1 run. The vintage SRH vibes returned with this game as the team that was famous for defending totals was back at it again. 

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar held his nerve in the final over and led his side to an emphatic victory in the crucial game against the high flying Rajasthan Royals who have lost only their second game thus far. 

With this close win, SRH moves to the 4th position on the points table with 12 points. Rajasthan, Kolkata, Lucknow and SRH are now in the top four positions and are the favorites to qualify for the playoffs. 

SRH has returned to form at the right time and fans are hoping that the team will build on this momentum to have a winning trophy run this year.
