Rajasthan Royals registers a historic win against Sunrisers Hyderabad on the shoulders of Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, and Shimron Hetmyer. Rajasthan bagged a 61-run victory against SRH in the game that took place in Pune. SRH could only raise 149 on the chase of 211.
SRH’s lack of extra effort
Prasidh Krishna, the 6’2 bowler, who bowls with a high release, said that he would like to be addressed as a hit-the-deck bowler and he is trying to get the length more consistently. Krishna stated this after plowing through the English batting order.
He got a bounce in his first over and straightened it after pitching to cause Kane Williamson to get stuck in the crease and edge it to Sanju Samson. Despite putting in a dive, the RR skipper was unable to grasp the catch, but the alert Devdutt Padikkal snatched it with both hands at first.
After watching the catch from several angles, the on-field umpires enlisted the help of the third umpire, who decided that the fielder had made a clean catch. Prasidh kept it simple – back of a length and in the corridor of uncertainty – and was soon rewarded with Rahul Tripathi’s wicket, which he edged to Samson.

The powerplay approach of the Rajasthan Royals
In the Powerplay, Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal added 58 runs in the first six overs, laying the framework for RR’s triumph. Buttler took a heavy toll on the tear-away, Umran Malik, in the fourth over of the innings, hitting him for two sixes and two fours.
Abdul Samad, on the other hand, dropped him at the first slip in the same over. It wouldn’t have made a difference because the quick bowler had overstepped.
In fact, Buttler had edged one to first slip off Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over, and the catch was also taken. However, the seasoned fast bowler made the error of overstepping. Jaiswal, on the other hand, hit a six and a four against Sundar and Bhuvneshwar.

Rajasthan Royal build on a solid foundation
Rajasthan Royals were able to continue their scoring rate despite losing Jaiswal in the seventh over and Buttler in the ninth. Padikkal finished with a 29-ball 41, while Samson had a stroke-filled 27-ball 55. Samson’s batting was highlighted by his slog-sweeping and pulling Sundar for two sixes in the 17th over.
Shimron Hetmyer pressed the throttle pedal at the conclusion of the innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan for three sixes and a boundary to finish with a 13-ball 32. He and Riyan Parag were both out in the last over of Natarajan’s innings, but RR had already passed the 200-run barrier.
