Chasing a target of 211, Sunrisers goit to the worst possible start possible as they lost their first three wickets for only 9 runs on the board and finished the Powerplay at 14/3, their worst powerplay ever in the history of IPL. Soon, they were reduced to 37-5 and then 78-6 in the 16th over. But then Washington Sundar joined Aiden Markram and the two hit 71 runs in the last 26 balls to take the team to 149-7 at the end of the 20th over.

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 149-7 after 20 overs, RR win by 61 runs

 
Nathan Coulter-Nile has been taken out of the attack now as he bowls a no-ball and gives a free hit off the very first ball and now Riyan Parag will bowl the last six balls
 
Free hit coming up and Bhuvi is on strike. And all he manages to get is down to long-on and thus Markram comes to strike 
 
And even Markram is unable to get going as he manages to get it down to deep mid-wicket for only a single 
 
Four!! And finally, the boundary to deep square leg and that would bring the fifty for Aiden Markram
 
Six!! And he gets another one and now can take Hyderarabd past 150 as well, which looked like a huge no-no at first when they were 37-5. 
 
So the innings end at 149-7 in the 20 overs because the last ball went for just a single and Rajasthan Royals have won this game by 61 runs. A huge victory to say the least

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 133-7 after 18.5 overs, great innings from Sundar ends

 
Four!! Washi Sundar is another mode now and shows that he is a pure batting all-rounder and must be played as such.  SRH need to make quite a few changes in the next game which also includes playing Marco Jansen
 
Six!! Bam, seems like Sudar is now batting at a different strip from that used by other SRH batters as he hits this over covers for a brilliant six and takes his own score to 40 and that of the team to 133
 
Wicket!! And that would be it for the fun from Washington Sundar as he hits this straight down the throat of Shimron Hetmyer at long-on and is out for 40 off just 14 balls 
11:01 PM

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 119-6 after 18 overs, Markram nearing 50

 
Now only three overs remain and Prasidh Krishna has been asked to bowl his last over here and on the first four balls he has gone for just four runs 
 
Six!! But Markram, says hold on as he picks the short of a good length ball and hits it over extra cover for a huge six. That is brilliant from Markram
 
Four!! And a four now, It was a wide yorker and Marekram just let his bat swing hard and got an edge over the slips for a four, now he moves to 44 and nears a fifty
10:56 PM

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 105-6 after 17 overs, Washi Sundar goes berserk now

 
Wow, what an over this has been for Washington Sundar as he has hit here 24 runs, the last of the boundaries coming courtesy of a very poor fielding from Yuzvendra Chahal. Chahal returned the favour to Coulter-Nile as he dropped one off Chahal's bowling and that was of Markram. But this has been a breath of fresh air from Sundar in what has ben a boring batting so far from the Sunrisers

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 72-5 after 14 overs, Romario Shepherding it along

 
In the air and falls safely as Jos Buttler chases it down from short cover to deep cover and Romario Shepherd completes a double 
 
Six!! Short and Romario says Thank You very much as he pulls this down the fine leg for a six 
 
Six!! And here we have another one now. Once again short and once again the pull, this time around, the folder came ahead from the boundary line, which was a mistake as that might have been a chance for a catch 
10:36 PM

IPL 2022 SRH vs RR | SRH Live Score 55-5 after 13 overs, Markram dropped

 
Dropped!! Now that's rare as Rajasthan have been almost flawless here but Aiden Markram here got an edge and then Coulter-Nile, coming from long-off was not able to catch the ball that fell in between mid-off and long-off 
 
Four!! Rubbing salt to injury, is it? Half tracker from Chahal after the drop catch and Markram went for the drive to sweeper cover and got a four
