In this match held at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday (May 7), Sunrisers got a target of 215 runs to win, which they dramatically achieved on the last ball.

Kiwi cricketer Glenn Phillips, who played a stormy inning of 25 runs in 7 balls, was the player of the match. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s hopes of reaching the playoffs remain intact with this victory.

 Philips Did Wonders In The 19th Over (RR Vs SRH IPL 2023)

RR Vs SRH IPL 2023: In the last two overs of this heart-stopping match, Sunrisers Hyderabad needed 41 runs to win and had five wickets in hand.

Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson gave the 19th over to fast bowler Kuldeep Yadav. Glen Phillip sent the first three balls of Kuldeep for sixes.

Then on the fourth ball of the over, Phillips hit a brilliant four. 22 runs had come in the first four balls and Phillips was eyeing to send the next two balls across the boundary as well.

However, this could not happen because, on the next ball of Kuldeep Yadav, Glenn Phillips returned to the pavilion after being caught by Caribbean player Shimron Hetmyer.

After Phillips’ dismissal, Marco Jansen came to the crease and took two runs off the last ball of the over. 24 runs came in the 19th over, which means Sunrisers Hyderabad needed 17 runs in the last over of the match.

17 Runs Were To Be Scored In The Last Over

Fast bowler Sandeep Sharma got the responsibility of throwing the last over. After taking two runs on the first ball in the last over, Abdul Samad sent the next ball to the long-on area for six runs.

Samad scored two runs on the third ball, while Samad could only take one run on the next ball. Now six runs were needed from two balls. Over the fifth ball, Jansen scored a run by pushing it toward the mid-wicket.

That No-Ball By Sandeep Sharma

Sunrisers needed five runs off the last ball and Abdul Samad was on strike. Samad tried to hit the ball over long-off, however, the timing of the shot was not correct and Jos Buttler took the catch.

The Rajasthan Royals players start celebrating the victory when the no-ball siren sounds. Now the last ball was to be thrown again, which was also a free-hit.

Hyderabad had to score four runs to win or three runs to draw the match. Sandeep Sharma tried to throw the yorker, but the length was not right and Abdul Samad gave the victory to his team by sending the ball over Sandeep Sharma’s head for six runs across the boundary.

Sunrisers Hyderabad successfully chased such a big target for the first time in the history of IPL. (RR Vs SRH IPL 2023)
