Sanju Samson's second IPL ton was overshadowed by David Warner's blistering fifty as SRH beat RR by five wickets to register their first win in the ongoing edition of the tournament on Friday.
SRH needed the quick start if they fancy their chances of eclipsing RR'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 smashed the first century of the ongoing IPL and together with skipper Ajinkya Rahane stitched a century stand to guide Rajasthan to a mammoth total.
Chasing the total, Warner looked in imperious form as he started clobbering the Rajasthan bowlers from the word go.
Rahane led from the front with 49-ball 70 and together with Samson shared 119 runs for the second wicket to set the base for the total.
Skipper Kane Williamson (14) and Vijay Shankar (35 off 15) played aggressively to bring down the equation.
