Despite his unceremonious exit from Sunrisers Hyderabad, former skipper David Warner was elated to see his old franchise coming out on top against Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match on Sunday. SRH pounced on the late no-ball error from RR's Sandeep Sharma to secure a 4-wicket win. It was Abdul Samad smashed a last-ball six as Sunrisers Hyderabad chased down 215 to stun Rajasthan Royals. Warner, thrilled with the drama-filled victory for the Hyderabad side, took to Twitter and wrote: "How goods the IPL, Glenn Phillips take a bow, Well played Sunrisers".

Needing 17 off the final over, Hyderabad pace bowler Sandeep Sharma witnessed Samad get dropped on the first ball and then got him caught on the sixth delivery which turned out to be a no ball which abruptly cut short Rajasthan's victory celebrations.
With another four needed to win on the final ball, and three to take the game into the super over, Hyderabad had the last laugh as Samad smashed a straight six in his seven-ball 17.
Hyderabad slipped to 174-5 when New Zealand's Glenn Phillips turned the game on its head with a seven-ball 25 that infused life into the chase.
Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling figures of 4-29 went in vain after he picked up key wickets including two in one over.
Buttler started slowly with his first 20 coming at run-a-ball but soon changed gears to bring up his fifty.
Seam bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar denied Buttler his century to get him out lbw, but Samson finished off the innings in a 17-run over.
