Match no -8 RR V/S SRH : SANJU’s ton in vain as WARNER’s blistering 69 helps win with an over to spare
April 11, 2019
clash between two Australian paws Steven Smith vs David Warner.
they’re not the captains but just the feeling that they are up against each
other makes me pumped.
lot excited to see them after 2 years ban.lets see what they are capable of.
Rajasthan Royals opt to bat
XI): Ajinkya Rahane(c), Jos Buttler(w), Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Ben Stokes,
Rahul Tripathi, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Shreyas
Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni

Pathan, Manish Pandey, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep
Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
up with captain Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler
breakthrough for SRH. A quick legbreak on leg stump from Rashid Khan, Buttler
tries to sweep but gets a glove on it before dragging it onto the stumps. The
bowler is pumped and rightly so, that’s a huge blow for RR.Sanju samson comes
Nemeses of Joss Buttler in IPL

move by Kane Williamson to bring Rashid Khan to bowl earlier than normal with a
view to attacking Buttler. Now has got him 3 times in 8 balls.
start by RR
been brilliant in the powerplay, conceding only 35 and getting the wicket of
Buttler to boot. Now it all depends upon Sanju Samson
& Samson steady the RR ship
partnership is worth 81 after 50 balls together.This is setting up the Royals
centuries for Samson, Rahane
batsmen have raced along after the powerplay. Rahane gets his 27th IPL fifty
while Samson gets his 11th. SRH are struggling after that Rashid strike. None
of their bowlers have threatened to take a wicket.
Nadeem gets Rahane
119-run stand has been broken by Nadeem. Rahane chips down the track and chips
it to long on.
taken 24 runs off an over single-handedly against Bhuvi with lovely strokes of
increasing class. All the boundaries through the offside, and all absolutely
gorgeous. Samson arrives in the IPL, as he does always.
know he is not consistent enough at the domestic level etc, but when on song,
how many Indians can bat like Sanju Samson does? Not many.
Ton baby (for Samson) & RR finish with 198
overs have taken the Royals to a mammoth total. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets hit for
20 runs in his final over as well. And Samson gets to his second IPL ton amidst
the end carnage. That will take some chasing.
kapoor – When
you’re called SANJU you’re bound to be a SUPERHIT.
SRH needs 199 to win
Warner and Johnny Bairstow comes to crease
to a blazing start
has hit a 29-ball fifty in this chase. He’s been finding boundaries on both
sides of the ground.SRH have 69 after the powerplay.
after 6 overs
much i’ve missed warner’s batting these years
amazing I can’t describe in words like how i feel.
partnership is now 100
a stand this has been between Bairstow and Warner. The latter has done most of
the damage but the 100-run stand comes up in under 9 overs.
bye! bye! to Warner
quick, short ball finally does the trick for Rajasthan Royals. Warner plays a
half-hearted pull and ends up top-edging it to fine leg. End of a blistering
knock of 37-ball 69 and a 110-run opening stand. It’s 110/1
gosh!!! Dhawal drops an absolutely sitter
could have had two wickets in that over. Bairstow gets a thick edge down to
third man where Dhawal misses a simple catch. How costly is that going to be?
takes a fantastic catch
that drop, Dhawal pulls off a spectacular catch at long off to end Bairstow’s
stay. The lofted shot, off Gopal, wasn’t timed well but still seemed to be
going over the rope. Dhawal times his jump to perfection just inches inside the
rope and takes a stunning catch.
is an enigma!! He drops a sitter and now takes a crackerjack catch!!!!!
Unadkat gets Williamson
Shankar is playing a very neat cameo at the other end and has kept SRH
comfortable. But Williamson too tries to get into the act and cuts an Unadkat
ball straight to point. A tight finish is at stake i guess.
two overs from Jofra Archer as well. This could get very tight.
He hits a
googly from Shreyas Gopal to long on after a 15-ball 35. Manish pandey comes to
equation is SRH need 32 off 27 balls now.
goes for golden duck
pandey misses the googly and is caught plumb in front. Gopal gets two in two.
Another gujju boy Yusuf pathan comes in.
going to be a hat-trick??
Rashid prevents the hat-trick.
equation is 30 runs to get in 24 balls
Yusuf are playing so well.
tonks Archer for a four and a six to eventually give SRH a comfortable
highest successful run chase.
