2023-05-21 21:54:40

Rajasthan Royals are out of the Indian Premier League for the 2023 season without reaching the playoffs. Although they managed to keep their playoff hopes alive till the last day of the league stage, overall it has been a season where Rajasthan Royals have disappointed the fans a lot. The fact is that Rajasthan Royals are the team that was at the top of the points table at one point and looked like they would make it to the playoffs with ease. In fact, this was the season where Rajasthan Royals should have made the playoffs very easily. The lapses in three matches led them out. Which three matches did Sanju and his team lose?

Sandeep’s no ball lost the match

Rajasthan Royals’ biggest regret this season will be their loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Jaipur. Chasing a target of 215 runs, Rajasthan reached 210 runs in 19.5 overs. 5 runs to win off the last ball. But Abdul Samad was caught out at long off by Sandeep Sharma. Rajasthan’s victory celebrations also started. But immediately after, the third umpire called no ball. With this, Hyderabad’s target was 4 runs in the last ball which became a free hit. Abdul Samad hit a six over Sandeep Sharma’s head to give Hyderabad an incredible win.

Hyderabad’s win in a match that was already lost. Royals’ unexpected defeat in a game they were sure to win. The 2 points lost in this match also affected the team’s playoff qualification as it reached the final stage.

Holder’s full tosses beat the match

Another match where Rajasthan Royals have been struggling this season is against Mumbai Indians. Batting first, Rajasthan posted a crushing score of 212/7 in the allotted 20 overs in a match that saw Yashaswi Jaiswal hit a brilliant century. Chasing the target well, Mumbai were 196/4 at the end of 19 overs.

West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder bowled 17 runs in the last over for Mumbai to win. But the first three balls bowled by the player were full tosses. Big-hitting prospect Tim David did no wrong. All three balls flew for sixes. Thus, Rajasthan lost without even a fight in the last over from being close to victory.

Match lost by Patikal’s innings

Rajasthan Royals’ second match of the season was against Punjab Kings. Batting first on the day, Punjab scored an excellent score of 197/4. Chasing the target, Rajasthan’s innings ended at 192/7. Devdat Padikal’s rowing in the middle order was the reason for Rajasthan’s defeat that day. Batting at number five, the player got out after scoring 21 runs off 26 balls. Dhruv Jural and Shimron Hetmyer struggled in the final overs, but Patikal’s crawl in the middle overs greatly increased the team’s required run rate. In the end, Rajasthan had to pay the price of the playoffs for dropping a winnable match like this at the start of the season.

Location of Rajasthan

At the same time, Rajasthan Royals finished fifth in the points table in the IPL 2023 season. Royals have 14 points in their account after winning 7 matches and losing 7 matches out of 14 games. Royal Challengers Bangalore also had 14 points but were behind in net run rate, putting Rajasthan in fifth position.
