HYDERABAD, March 29: Sanju Samson�s second IPL ton was overshadowed by David Warner�s blistering fifty as Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Rajasthan Royals by five wickets to register their first win in the ongoing edition of the tournament here today.

Samson�s first century of the ongoing IPL went in vain, as chasing a mammoth 199-run target, Warner set up the platform for Sunrisers with a breezy 69 off 37 balls and together with Jonny Bairstow (45 off 28) added a century stand for the opening wicket to spoil Rajasthan�s day.

Sunrisers needed the quick start if they fancy their chances of eclipsing Rajasthan�s imposing 198 for two and Warner and Bairstow just provided that to give the impetus for the rest of the batsmen to follow as the hosts chased down the target in 19 overs.

Earlier, Samson and skipper Ajinkya Rahane stitched a century stand to guide Rajasthan to a huge total. Samson didn�t spare a single Sunrisers bowler and remained unbeaten on 102 that came off just 55 balls with the help of 10 fours and four sixes. His first IPL century came in 2017.
