The win puts Sunrisers Hyderabad at the top of the table on net run rate.
The wide margin of victory propelled Hyderabad to the top of the IPL leaderboard, while the defeat offered a punishing return to the IPL for Rajasthan, who were suspended for the past two editions over a corruption and match-fixing scandal. SRh won with 4 overs to spare.
The Black Caps captain hit three fours and a six in his unbeaten knock, combining for an unbroken 121-run second wicket stand with Dhawan. He was ably-supported by Williamson, who played within the "V" - cover to mid-on.
End of over 13, 10 Runs came SRH 114/1 here 12 runs required from 42 balls to win.
In over 14 Dhawan, Williamson take SRH to 120/1. SRH was 57-1 after 6 overs.
Earlier, the Sunrisers produced a disciplined bowling display to restrict the Royals to a paltry 125 for 9.
In pushing Rahul Tripathi, who enjoyed phenomenal success as an opener in 2017, to No. 5, they may have erred right at the outset. Sanju failed to hold his nerves and was dismissed by Shakib for 49. Ben Stokes joined Samson. Indian pacer Jaydev Unadkat will lead the Royals' bowling attack. Ajinkya Rahane was named as the captain then after for the season. Sanju smashed a couple of boundaries to gather some momentum. Shakib Al Hasan and Siddarth Kaul were standouts with the ball. But Daredevils head coach Ricky Ponting wouldn't be too perturbed as he believes that the "fresh group" of players have the potential to carry forward the team. Rajasthan made a nightmarish comeback to the Indian T20 league on Monday when they played their first game against Hyderabad at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. The threat of a wet weather looms in the city, causing concerns among Hyderabad Cricket Association officials.
Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan of celebrate after thumping. It was the start the Sunrisers were looking for with the unsafe hitter dismissed in the first over of the match. Sooner or later one of Rahane, Stokes or Jos Buttler will fire with the bat and if they do, they'll look a far better side than what we saw in Game One.
Earlier in the day, it wasn't the kind of start that Rajasthan would have hoped for after coming back into the league after a gap of two years.
England wicketkeeper-batsman Buttler also struggled, making six before becoming Rashid Khan's first victim of the new IPL season.
