IPL 2022 – RR ( Rajasthan Royals ) vs SRH ( Sunrisers Hyderabad ) cricket match was scheduled today in which RR won by 61 runs.
Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl.
Kane Williamson: “I think it (pitch) will play pretty well, the grass is short and potential dew factor, so we will try and make use of that. Most of the team has been here for a week to ten days and that has been really helpful. Really excited to get the tournament started. Every team is faced with the same challenges and it will be great to get going. They (coaching staff) have been amazing, so much knowledge there to tap into and they are also excited.”
Sanju Samson: “It is a special day for the franchise as seven guys are making their debuts. Our four foreign internationals are Jos Buttler, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult and Hetmyer. We have played a lot of games here and know what is going to happen. It looks like a very green wicket but I am sure it will help both batsmen and bowlers.”
Sunrisers Hyderabad picked skipper Kane Williamson, young all-rounder Abdul Samad and fiery uncapped pacer Umran Malik as the three retentions. Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson will probably open the innings. Chasing a mammoth 211-run target, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost three wickets inside five overs. Sent in to bat, Sanju Samson (55) and Devdutt Padikkal (41) powered Rajasthan Royals to a massive 210 for 6 against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MCA stadium in Pune. The Royals batters fired in unison tonight and smacked as many as 14 sixes in their innings to go with 16 fours.
