What a dramatic start to match number 5 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 it has been. While SunRisers Hyderabad had won the toss and opted to bowl first, they were millimeters close to getting a breakthrough in the first over of the match itself with Bhuvneshwar Kumar getting Jos Buttler to edge one to the slips.
However, the Rajasthan Royals opener survived as Bhuvi had marginally overstepped and the ball was deemed a no-ball. The video of the incident has surfaced in what was a lucky escape for the Royals.
Here is the video of the incident:

As a result of the error from India’s senior pacer what could have been a wicket maiden for him and the Orange Army, ended with one run without a wicket. The right-arm swing bowler in his next over repeated the error and it hurt him even more with the free hit ball going to a boundary from the bat of Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Having said that, Rajasthan wouldn’t mind the missed wicket chance and would now look to make most of the opportunity. The match is the 100th one for skipper Sanju Samson in RR colours and he would want to make it a memorable one with a win.
