What happened on the pitch?

On the pitch, there was a full-fledged battle. Unlike the other defeating teams, Rajasthan left no scope for the opponent. They gave a full fight. However, defeat is also a part of the game.

Opener Travis Head scored 58 off 44 balls with 6 fours and 3 sixes while Abhishek Sharma managed to score 12 off 10 balls. Other players who made an impact in their innings are Nitish Kumar Reddy and Henrich Klaasen who scored an unbeaten 76 off 42 balls and 42 off 19 balls respectively and powered Sunrisers Hyderabad to score 201 for three.

Let’s focus on the performance of RR. Jos Buttler was the first to fall for a golden duck and three balls later, Bhuvneshwar aka Bhuvi made a wonder bowling & skipper Sanju Samson fell for a three-ball duck. The game finally was seen coming on track after a 134-run partnership between Yashasvi Jaiswal and Riyan Parag. It looked like they almost took the game away from SRH. Jaiswal scored 67 off 40 balls with 7 fours and 2 sixes, while Parag scored 77 off 49 balls with 8 fours and 4 sixes. However, after they were dismissed none of the players could make an impact. Shimon Hetmyer scored 13 off 9 balls, Rovman Powell scored 27 off 15 balls, Dhruv Jurel scored 1 off 3 balls while R Ashwin remained not out at 2 off 2 balls, making the total score of 200.

To be very honest, the credit for this 1 run win goes to Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Player of the match:

Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the Player of the Match for his terrific 3/41.

Post-match: who said what

After the game, Head said, “It’s a good win, it’s probably one that we didn’t expect at the end there. Cummins and Bhuvi showed their class at the end and got us a nice win. We’ve been playing well, we’ve had a couple of losses, nice for the energy.” He also hailed the all-rounder Nitish Reddy for his effortless knock.”

“Nitish played out of his skin again. He’s had a couple of innings now where he’s stepped up, which made it look really easy. It was a tough pitch. I felt we had heaps but that’s T20 crickets, it comes down to the wire most times. Always nice to win in front of your home fans,” Head added.

It is a fact that Bhuvi alone changed the game. ‘Wasn’t thinking much about the result in the last over’ he said after the match.

“I wasn’t thinking much about the result in the last over. There was no discussion in the last over, was just focussed on the process. Was thinking just about bowling two good balls, anything could have happened,” he said in the presentation ceremony after the match. “The ball swung so much, can’t really pinpoint, really enjoyed it. Luckily got wickets today. When the season started thought process was different, but it changed when the batters played in such a way,” he added

Current scenario:

After yesterday’s match, with two points in their kitty, SRH surpassed Chennai Super Kings and moved to the fourth spot with 12 points in 10 matches in the points table, however, despite the loss, RR remained at the top spot with 16 points.
