Sunrisers' David Warner is dismissed as Royals' Ben Stokes celebrates taking his catch off the bowling of Jofra Archer in the UAE Thursday

Warner, who lost his wicket four times to Archer in Australia's summer tour of England and again in the IPL two weeks ago, lasted just four balls this time against the fiery fast bowler

England's Jofra Archer claimed David Warner's wicket for the sixth time this year Thursday but the Australian still came out on top when his Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League.

Warner, who lost his wicket four times to Archer in Australia's summer tour of England and again in the IPL two weeks ago, lasted just four balls this time against the fiery fast bowler.

He managed to hit one four in the opening over before being brilliantly caught by England all-rounder Ben Stokes in the slips off Archer.

Warner walked off cursing. 

Archer quickly claimed Jonny Bairstow too and Hyderabad seemed in trouble at 16/2 in the third over as they chased Rajasthan's 154/6.

But Manish Pandey (83) and Vijay Shankar (52) put on an unbeaten 140 for the third wicket to seal an overwhelming eight-wicket win.

Victory put Hyderabad into fifth - two points behind Kolkata Knight Riders - and still with a hope of one of the four playoff places with four games to play.

Rajasthan dropped to seventh with a mathematical chance but Warner's Australian teammate Steve Smith has only three games to go and knows he needs a miracle turnaround now to progress.

Smith won the toss and chose to bat but Rajasthan again failed to fire. 

Stokes opened and hit 30 off 32 balls, and wicket-keeper Sanju Samson made 36 off 26 balls. 

But even with Ryan Parag hitting a six and two fours in a 12-ball 20, Rajasthan's 154/6 off 20 overs never seemed enough.

After the early departure of Warner and Bairstow, Pandey - who hit eight sixes and four fours - and Shankar never gave the Rajasthan bowlers a look in and completed the target with 11 balls to spare.
