SRH vs RR 50th Match IPL 2024 Highlights 5-2-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals. Indian Premier League 2024 fiftieth match, played at Hyderabad.

The highest asking rate the Rajasthan Royals allowed to reach in a 202 chase was 10.88, which came at the conclusion of the first over, and that was until the 19th over of the chase. Still, Sunrisers Hyderabad prevailed by a single run. After Pat Cummins bowled a brilliant 19th over, Bhuvneshwar Kumar capably defended 12 in the last over, even if the over-rate penalty gave them one less boundary hitter.

Rovman Powell missed a calf-high full toss to be out leg before wicket, but RR was still the favorite going into the last ball and needed two to win. With the wickets of Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson in the opening over, Bhuvneshwar set up their defence brilliantly. However, with their fifties, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Riyan Parag made the chase appear simple. They required 67 off 39 when Jaiswal went down, then 43 off 25 when Parag exited. Powell and Shimorn Hetmyer appeared to be coasting along until two singles went straight to the fielders, and Cummins came crashing down.

Despite opting to bat first, SRH took the picturesque way to their fifth IPL century or higher. By all accounts, their regular chasing record, not the circumstances, guided the choice. They were forced to begin on a slow track, but as the evening progressed, things got better. Actually, in their final 12 overs, they scored 153 runs themselves. SRH, who are now ranked in the top four on the points table, appeared to have lost the match during the first eight overs of the eighteen overs of the RR chase.

For RR, having two left-handers open was a perfect matchup. They could now also bowl R Ashwin, although Trent Boult is still an excellent new-ball bowler. Travis Head was dropped by Parag at backward point, depriving Boult of a wicket on the opening delivery, although the pair bowled four overs for just twenty-five runs between them. Boult took the opposite approach, putting two players deep on the leg side and denying the SRH openers any space.

After CSK had stopped them with a sweeper on the off side during the powerplay. Being able to consistently beat the bat without taking a wicket was especially unfortunate for Ashwin. With the first ball that each of Abhishek Sharma and Anmolpreet Singh was bowled, Avesh Khan and Sandeep Sharma received the rewards. As a result, the SRH powerplay this year was the slowest at 37 runs.

It appeared as though SRH decided the pitch had improved after the first time-out. There was a noticeable shift in intent. It was directed against Yuzvendra Chahal, who was dragged and driven for sixes by Head. In 37 balls, he moved from 27 off 27 to his fifty. Reddy did the same, turning his 5-off-10 into a 30-ball-50. Despite Chahal’s second-worst stats in all of T20 cricket, he was merciless against him, giving him the second-worst analysis of any spinner in the IPL (4-0-62-0).

After hitting his fifty, Head again found himself in a bit of a slump, which culminated with him playing on as he attempted to ramp a wide yorker. Not until the third umpire granted him another reprieve, despite the fact that his bat was obviously in the air when the wicket was shattered. Still, it was Reddy and Heinrich Klaasen who really caused RR’s problems. Reddy hit two sixes in his last over, ruining Ashwin’s tidy stats. In the 17th over, Klaasen then got into a collision with Chahal. The RR bowlers were spot on in their strategy and execution, and Klaasen’s outstanding hitting and ingenuity were needed to propel SRH over 200 runs.

In the same over, Bhuvneshwar moved the fresh ball beyond Samson’s inside edge and drew the outside edge off Buttler’s first ball. In T20 cricket, they were his 45th and 46th wickets in the opening over. With 27 wickets, he is currently tied for leading place with Shaheen Shah Afridi’s 47, only one behind him.

In the second over, Bhuvneshwar attempted to knock a six and two fours, but his swing was met by Parag’s wide swinging bat. This was casual, contemptuous striking. Jaiswal was equally strong but more courteous. At mid-off, his shot at the beginning of the fourth over found its way directly into Cummins’s midriff, but the captain of the SRH dropped it. Subsequently, Cummins launched himself to score a pair of fours and an incredible six over the long leg. Abhishek Sharma dismissed Parag at extra cover in the subsequent over. The fact that the asking rate stayed around 10 at its greatest point indicates how consistently they hit.

Similar to Head, Jaiswal attempted to ramp it up by playing on a low full toss. Two balls later, Parag smacked a six to regain the momentum. In hindsight, little things that happened in the 16th over seem monumental. Parag smashed a full toss to short fine leg straight from Cummins. Then he holed out to long-on after getting too near to a half-volley. In a rare over without a boundary, SRH claimed a wicket. However, Powell calmed RR’s fears by hitting 15 off of Marco Jansen’s 17th bowl. Hetmyer had a big six to begin the eighteenth. After he mishit a full toss after two dot balls, the game refused to end.

Following a leg-side half-volley from Dhruv Jurel that went straight down the neck of deep square leg, Cummins bowled three consecutive dots at Powell, who smacked the last ball for six to tip the scales once again. Powell took advantage of the fielding penalty after Ashwin gave him the strike to take a boundary through the empty fine-leg area. Powell was able to capture three pairs because of poor throws from the outfield. It would end with one more. Powell could have been anticipating a yorker since Bhuvneshwar had been dominating them. He was caught off guard by the whole toss, which handed RR their first IPL loss while pursuing.
