Hyderabad beat Rajasthan by 4 wickets in a thrilling match
SRH batsman hit the last ball for a six
New Delhi. In the year 2020, Sunrisers Hyderabad bet on the young player of Jammu and Kashmir. In that season, this batter of strong stature hit sixes on the balls of bowlers like Jaspreet Bumrah, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins. In the last four seasons of IPL, this player proved time and again that he has the power to beat the bowlers, but he failed to perform consistently. Despite this, Hyderabad kept faith in this player. Retained for IPL 2023 after spending Rs 4 crore. Finally, on Sunday night, this batter settled all the accounts.
We are talking about Abdul Samad of Sunrisers Hyderabad, who gave his team a charismatic victory against Rajasthan Royals. Samad, 21, along with Marco Jansen scored 19 runs in the last over. Sunrisers Hyderabad needed 4 runs on the last ball of the match. Samad hit a six off Sandeep Sharma and brought Hyderabad’s journey back on track. Some people on social media are telling Samad better than Dhoni in terms of finishing the match.
Actually, in the match against Rajasthan, Chennai needed five runs on the last ball. But Dhoni could not hit a six on the ball of Sandeep Sharma. As a result, CSK had to face defeat. According to former Team India captain Krishnammachari Srikkanth, Dhoni could not finish the match against Sandeep Sharma who remained unsold in the auction. Abdul Samad finished the match batting against Sandeep. Dhoni is a very overrated finisher.
