Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals Match Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between SRH and RR IPL 2022, Match 05, SRH vs RR.
Rajasthan Royals registered a comprehensive victory in their first game of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Tuesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
A complete batting domination from the Rajasthan Royals powered them to a mammoth total of 210-6 before the RR bowlers, led by Yuzvendra Chahal reduced the Sunrisers to 149-7.
Chasing a lofty target of 211, SRH openers – Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma were greeted by some fiery pace bowling from Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna.
The SRH skipper was the first victim after Williamson was caught by Devdutt Padikkal, who took a juggling catch in the slips, off Krishna’s bowling. The right-arm pacer scalped his second wicket in the form of Rahul Tripathi, who nicked the ball back to the keeper.
Rajasthan who won the inaugural season of the competition back in 2008 failed to make it to the playoffs for the third straight time last season (IPL 2021). The Sanju Samson led side came up with just wins from 14 games and finished 7th last season.
