RR vs SRH IPL 2022: 5 reasons behind the victory of the Rajasthan Royals 

  1. Batters are in the form

Rajasthan has proved the fact that they have one of the best batting lineups in this 2022 IPL season. As openers like Jos Butler and Yashasvi Jaiswal gave an outstanding start which make the momentum after that middle-order batsmen Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikal, and Simron Hetmayar did their part which leads RR to a huge total of 210 in their 20 overs.

This RR batting line completely dominated the SRH bowlers and showed that the RR batting lineup is in form. It was also interesting to see this type of form against different franchises.

2. Bowling domination

After setting a big total for SRH in this match, the RR continues their domination in the bowling department too. The RR pacers Prasidh Krishna and Trent bowled show their skills and consider only 15 runs in the powerplay by taking three main wickets of Kane Williamson, Rahul Tripathi, and Nicolas Pooran and it is the lowest runs scored by the team in the powerplay in the history of IPL.

After that spinners of Rajasthan Yuzi Chahal and Ravi Ashwin taking the charge made it more difficult for the SRH batters to chase the total and as a result, Rajasthan has won the match by a huge margin of 61 runs.

3. Excellent on the field

As in the match, Rajasthan players have covered each and every section of the game and their fielding has also been remarkable where they had not only made the SRH batters hit boundaries by bowling but they also made them drag for a single by their outstanding fielding. As RR has good fielders like Ryan Parag and Aiden Markram who made the batsmen think twice before taking a run.

4. Better team management 

Despite having a better squad Rajasthan Royals always choke in their team selection but this season they look completely different. RR not only makes a balance playing XI but their captain Sanju Samson also makes the right decision at the right time which is preferred as they are standing far ahead of SRH.

5. Perfect execution of the plans

Royals seem to have better plans than Hyderabad and not only did making the plans but the execution of the plan was also perfect. RR has made the most out of the powerplay and sticks to the bowling plan against every SRH batsman which seems pretty good. Perfect execution of the plans has made RR gain victory.

” This season we have come in with great dreams. Our owners take great care of us. Lot of good sides and we will take one game at a time”, says Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson.

“For us as a side and as a young team, we want to make sure that we stay engaged throughout, be nice and clear on what we’re trying to execute”, says SRH captain Kane Williamson.
