Exciting Matches Between SRH vs RR in IPL

In 2009 the Rajasthan Royals played the Sunrisers Hyderabad and were restricted to a dismal total of 133 runs for eight wickets. They struggled to put bat to ball in the powerplay, with only a measly 14 runs, and two wickets were taken. Top batsmen Graeme Smith, Swapnil Asnodkar and Niraj Patel, could not find their form and struggled to put runs on the board.

The brilliant bowling of SRH bowler Anil Kumble, with his five wickets for five runs, ensured that RR was all out for the then lowest record of just 58 runs. Games were played in Newlands, South Africa and Anil Kumble was the hero of the day. This was one of the most interesting matches played in the SRH vs RR history.

In 2019, the much-anticipated game between the Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad was abandoned due to rain. This caused the SRH to crash out of the IPL at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. The game was reduced to five overs a side, and RR was well on track to win with their score of 41 runs in 3.3 overs. SRH only had 63 runs in their full over quota. RR had to settle for one point but still made the playoffs, and were beaten by the Delhi Capitals.

The exciting IPL 2020 clash between RR and SRH saw batsman Abie De Villiers lead the SRH to a resounding victory, scoring the winning runs with a boundary. The Rajasthan Royals ended their innings on 154 runs for six wickets. SRH replied with incredible batting form from their captain Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. They won comfortably by eight wickets to move to the top of the IPL Points-Table. SRH were knocked out of the league by losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Both of the SRH vs RR IPL 2021 fixtures were exciting affairs. The first match belonged to the Rajasthan Royals, who won by 55 runs. Going into the second one, the 40th match of the IPL season, the Royals were seventh on the table, and the Sunrisers were eighth, with only one win out of nine previous matches. Led by Kane Williamson and Jason Roy, the Sunrisers won by 7 wickets and ended their losing streak.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad is a professional cricket team from Hyderabad, Telangana, India. It is frequently hailed as one of the best in the IPL. Many of the SRH records are a testament to that fact. Namely, ever since the team replaced the Deccan Chargers in the league in 2012, it has managed to reach the playoffs in almost every season. Their maiden title was finally won in 2016, when they defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 runs. The second appearance in the finals in 2018 sadly ended in a loss to the Chennai Super Kings.

Even though the Sunrisers Hyderabad have been playoff contenders since 2016, the same can’t be said for their 2021 season. In terms of SRH stats, it was one of those that the squad will want to forget as soon as possible. They finished last, winning only 3 out of 14 games.

It seems that the SRH IPL 2022 team is now ready to turn things around and make a deep run in the playoffs after a disappointing season.

Tom Moody and Simon Katich were announced as the coaching duo in December 2021, replacing Trevor Bayliss and Brad Haddin. Then, after the exhausting bubble in 2021, Katich resigned and was replaced by the former Melbourne Renegades coach, Simon Helmot.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad entered the 2022 auction with 22 retained and 5 released players. Based on the moves, the SRH auction 2022 could be marked as a success. The team held on to Abdul Samad and got Priyam Garg back, together with Bhuvneshwar and T Natarajan. The club splurged 6.5 crore on Abhishek Sharma and another 25 crore for the services of Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd, and Washington Sundar.

After the coaching staff was put together, it was time to turn to the roster and bring some new energy in. Only three players were retained, while twenty new ones were added, led by Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, and Nicholas Pooran, the team’s most expensive signing this year. Even though David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Jason Holder have surprisingly been let go, it probably means that Kane Williamson will be in charge of opening the batting for the team. Williamson is also likely to become the scoring leader with a real chance of winning the Orange Cap his predecessor, Warner, has won on three occasions.

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals are one of the initial IPL cricket teams. They have been around the competition since its beginning in 2008. In fact, the RR IPL squad was the inaugural winner of the league, outlasting Chennai Super Kings by 3 wickets in the finals.

The RR IPL record was smeared by the team’s expulsion on two separate occasions. In 2010, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) expelled the Rajasthan Royals on the basis of the alleged change in the shareholding patterns without informing the BCCI. The case reached the Mumbai High Court, but ultimately, the BCCI decided not to pursue the matter further. As a result, the Royals were allowed to remain in the league.

Regrettably, the team’s woes with the BCCI did not end there. In 2015, the Rajasthan Royals were found guilty of match-fixing and illegal betting, resulting in a 2-year ban from the competition, while their owner, Raj Kundra, was banned for life.

In recent years, the team has been struggling to make a more considerable push, and according to the RR IPL stats, the 2021 season was marked by subpar performance. The team only won 5 out of their 14 matches, with a net run rate of -0.993

After the Royals won the first IPL competition, they qualified for the playoffs three other times — in 2013, 2015, and 2018. The RR IPL 2022 squad is hoping to change things up and bring the team back to the top. .

TRR auction 2022 was a success too. Namely, the Rajasthan Royals retained four players, including the star batsman Sanju Samson and released all the remaining ones. This gave them plenty of room in the cap to build a strong Indian core backed with great overseas players. A total of 21 new signings came as a result of the auction and a purse of Rs 62 crores. Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, and others are among the top steals of the auction.

With retained star RR players like Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Devdutt Padikkal as a new addition, the team has improved the top-order considerably. Ravichandran Ashwin and Trent Boult will be in charge of boosting the poor bowling RR IPL stats. The batting unit manned by Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, Jos Buttler, and others represents the team’s biggest strength and can snatch many innings, thus improving the terrible RR IPL record of last year.
