Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals, Indian Premier League 2023 LIVE Cricket Scorecard: Rajasthan Royals defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 72 runs in the match number 4 of the IPL 2023.
Riding on superb batting performance by Jos Buttler, Yashsavi Jaiswal and captain Sanju Samson followed by excellent bowling by Yuzvendra Chahal and Trent Boult, Rajasthan Royals thrashed Sunrisers Hyderabad by 72 runs in match number 4 of the IPL 2023 on Sunday. After winning the toss, Sunrisers Hyderabad's skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar opted to field first, and Rajasthan Royals finished their innings at 203 runs after 20 overs in their opening match of IPL 2023. The Royals are known for their fighting spirit and balanced squad, led by Sanju Samson, with a potent spin attack featuring Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Adam Zampa. In IPL 2022, Chahal emerged as the leading wicket-taker with 27 scalps, while Ashwin showed good form in the recent Border-Gavaskar Test series. The Royals' batting lineup is equally impressive, spearheaded by Jos Buttler, with Joe Root, Shimron Hetmyer, and Jason Holder providing depth.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, in contrast, has struggled in the past two IPL seasons, finishing last on both occasions. Their top order looks uncertain, but they have the reliable Glenn Phillips in the middle order. Their strength lies in their pace attack, featuring Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Marco Jansen. Bhuvneshwar, who has captained the side seven times, knows the team well and will lead them in their opening match against the Rajasthan Royals.

LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: That is it!
After a four-year hiatus, IPL cricket made a return to Hyderabad. The stadium was filled with orange, but as the game commenced, the color began to fade, and a few pink and purple hues emerged. Sunrisers experienced Murphy's Law as they were given a beating by the Rajasthan openers, resulting in their highest powerplay tally. RR's Samson also got a fifty, allowing them to finish with a solid first innings score.
In response, SRH was hit hard by the pink ball as their in-form batters Rahul Tripathi and Abhishek Sharma were dismissed for ducks. Harry Brook's IPL debut was also forgettable as the spinners began to tighten their grip. Mayank Agarwal showed some potential but was eventually dismissed by Chahal, and the rest of the middle-order failed to make significant contributions. At one point, even crossing 100 appeared to be a challenge until some late efforts by the impact player Abdul Samad and Umran Malik helped SRH reach a respectable total.
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: Chahal takes another wicket
Chahal delivers the ball to Adil Rashid, who attempts to use his feet, but Chahal bowls it wider and slower through the air. Rashid swings early and misses, resulting in an easy stumping for Samson. Interestingly, the third umpire is checking for a stumping. Upon review, it is evident that Adil Rashid was far away from the crease. Therefore, Adil Rashid is stumped by Samson off Chahal's delivery, scoring 18 runs off 13 balls, including 1 four and 1 six.
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: SRH 6 Down
Another wicket falls for SRH as Chahal strikes with a well-disguised wrong 'un. The ball pitches full outside off, tempting Mayank to get low and slog-sweep it. However, he only manages to slice it off the toe-end of his bat towards long-off, where Buttler takes a comfortable catch. Mayank has to depart after scoring 27 runs off 23 balls, including 3 boundaries. The updated scorecard reads: Mayank c Buttler b Chahal 27(23) [4s-3].
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: R Ashwin strikes
SRH's situation goes from bad to worse as Ashwin gets in on the wicket-taking action with a big grin on his face. The ball is tossed up full outside off, tempting Glenn Phillips to play an ambitious shot. Falling for the bait, Phillips goes for a full-blooded uppish drive, but unfortunately hits it straight to extra cover, off the bottom half of his bat. KM Asif, positioned at extra cover, takes a sharp catch, leaving Phillips to depart for just 8 runs off 6 balls. The scorecard now reads: Glenn Phillips c KM Asif b Ashwin 8(6) [6s-1].
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: SRH 4 Down
Washington Sundar has been caught by Hetmyer off Holder's delivery, adding another wicket to the tally! The short ball proves to be Sundar's undoing as Holder hits the deck hard, leaving no room for the batter to maneuver. Although Sundar is cramped for space, he goes for a pull shot across the line, but ends up getting it off the toe-end of the bat. The ball lobs up towards mid-off, where Hetmyer charges in from extra cover to take a safe catch. Sundar departs for a mere 1 run off 5 balls. The scorecard now reads: Washington Sundar c Hetmyer b Holder 1(5).
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: Chahal Strikes
Harry Brook has been bowled by Chahal, marking the end of a struggling first innings for him in the IPL! The on-air commentator mentions that this is Chahal's 300th wicket in T20s. He bowls a quicker and flatter delivery on off, which could be the flipper. Harry Brook anticipates the ball to spin away, rocks back, and tries to cut it square on the off-side. However, he is deceived by the skid on the ball, which crashes into his off-stump. This dismissal has put SRH in a lot of trouble. The scorecard now reads: Harry Brook b Chahal 13(21) [4s-1].

LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: Watch: Double Strike by Boult
Tripathi has been caught by Holder off the bowling of Boult! What an amazing catch by Holder! Tripathi seemed to think it was a bump-ball, but surprisingly, he decided to review the decision. Umpire KN Anantha Padmanabhan had a chat with Tripathi regarding the review. It was confirmed that the review was taken by the batter. Holder, who was stationed at a wide slip, made an outstanding catch by stretching his left-hand to grab the ball. Tripathi had come down the track and opened the face of his bat on a full outswinger outside off, guiding it wide of Holder, but the tall fielder just plucked it from thin air. This is undoubtedly one of the best moments of the IPL season so far. SRH have also lost their review. The scorecard shows: Tripathi c Holder b Boult 0(2).
LIVE IPL 2023 SRH vs RR: Watch: Boult strikes in 1st over
Abhishek Sharma has been bowled by Boult! What an incredible delivery, an out swinging yorker that was an absolute peach. This is Boult at his very best. Sharma didn't do himself any favours by positioning himself on the leg side of the ball as he attempted to dig it out, and the ball swung away from him and hit the off-stump, resulting in a perfect start for RR. The scorecard reads: Abhishek Sharma b Boult 0(3).

Rajasthan Royals put up a massive score with a powerful performance by Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal in the powerplay. The two batsmen attacked the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers, with Buttler reaching his fifty in just 20 deliveries. However, Farooqi managed to dismiss Buttler just when it seemed like he would break records. Jaiswal slowed down after reaching his fifty, while Samson took over as the aggressor. Jaiswal eventually got out, and although SRH fought back with wickets, Samson continued his good form in the IPL by reaching his fifty. Despite SRH's good death bowling from Natarajan and Farooqi, Rajasthan Royals managed to reach a total of 203 runs. While the wicket was good and the outfield was fast, chasing 203 will not be an easy task for SRH. At the moment, the advantage is with Rajasthan Royals.
