Updated IPL 2023 Points Table, Orange Cap, Purple Cap After RR vs SRH Game: Hyderabad Move Out Of Bottom
Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Rajasthan Royals by four wickets to keep their playoff hopes alive in a high-scoring IPL 2023 thriller
Abdul Samad hit a six off the last delivery as SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) astonishingly chased down 215 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their IPL 2023 match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. With SRH needing 44 off the last three overs, Glenn Phillips played a cameo of 25 off just seven balls, before Samad remained unbeaten on 17 to take SRH across the finishing line. Interestingly, Sandeep Sharma, who bowled the last over for RR, had initially dismissed Samad on the last ball of the match.
However, the replay showed that he overstepped, and handed Samad a golden opportunity, which the latter took it with both hands and struck a six over long-off.
