Rajasthan Royals are making it difficult for themselves to retain their second spot in the league as they succumbed to a 7-run loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Shikhar Dhawan (54) and David Warner (24) gave SRH a good start but it was Eoin Morgan (28-ball 63), who took their score past the 200-run mark.

Chasing 202 to win, RR needed their top order to fire but that didn’t happen. However, Steve Smith (68) and James Faulkner (30) ensured that they got close to the total.

The battle to finish in the top 4 couldn’t have been more dramatic as only 4 points separate toppers Chennai from 6 th placed Mumbai Indians.
