IPL 2022 – Sanju Samson’s aggressive RR thumps SRH by huge margin

Published on

In the 5th match of IPL 2022, Rajasthan Royals thump Sunrisers Hyderabad by a huge margin of 61 runs. After losing the toss and asked to bat first, RR batters thrashed SRH bowlers after early no-balls fiasco. RR went on to score 210 runs in 20 overs which proved too much for SRH’s new batting lineup.

In the first over of the match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed Jos Buttler but it was discovered to be a front-foot no-ball. Rajasthan Royals skipper – Sanju Samson played another magnificent innings to lead his team from the front. In his 100th match for the franchise, Samson scored 55 runs off just 27 balls.

Shimron Hetmyer & Devdutt Padikkal provided the finishing touches to the innings by adding 44 runs in just 3.1 overs. Umran Malik & T Natarajan took 2 wickets each while Bhuvneshwar & Romario Shepherd took a wicket each.

SRH began the chase nervously and lost skipper Kane Williamson in 2nd over. The 3rd umpire decision was slightly controversial as Williamson’s edge got Samson’s glove and was grasped by Devdutt Padikkal at first slip. However, the replays were not conclusive enough to prove that the ball was grassed and 3rd umpire adjudged it as clean catch.

SRH were soon reduced to 9/3 within 4.5 overs which soon became 29/4 as they slipped further. They scored 14/3 in powerplay which is joint lowest total in powerplay in IPL history.

Aiden Markram, Washington Sundar and Romario Shepherd provided some respite with the bat and took SRH to 149/7 in 20 overs. Sundar scored 40 runs off just 14 balls while Markram remained unbeaten on 57 runs.
