Brad Hodge played a whirlwind knock of 54 off 29 as Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets, eliminating the Cameron White side from IPL 6.
Live updates from the eliminator of IPL 6 between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
Hyderabad are undoubtedly the surprise entry in the play-offs, but one has to say that they used their little resources to the maximum to move ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore and defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders - two sides far stronger on paper.
Interestingly, Hyderabad beat Rajasthan in their penultimate league match to put one foot in the knock-outs. The first encounter between these two teams, however, went to Rajasthan.
