Rajasthan Royals defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by five wickets in a dramatic Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter in Dubai on Sunday.

Chasing a target of 159, Rajasthan won the game with one ball to spare.

An 85-run sixth-wicket partnership between Riyan Parag (42 off 26 balls) and Rahul Tewatia (45 off 28 balls) helped set up the win.

With eights runs needed from the last over, Parag smashed Khaleel Ahmed for a six off the penultimate ball.

Earlier, Hyderabad who won the toss and elected to bat, scored 158-4, helped by Manish Pandey's 54 (44 balls) and David Warner's 48 (38 balls).

Rajasthan are now sixth in the eight-team table, level on six points with Hyderabad, who remain fifth thanks to a better run-rate.
