Watch: Bhuvneshwar snatches victory from jaws of defeat

NEW DELHI: T20 cricket was at its best with the momentum swinging back and forth during the IPL 2024 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Rajasthan Royals and the match result was not ascertained till the last ball was bowled.
With Rajasthan needing 2 runs off the final ball to chase down 201 against SRH, a Super Over loomed large. Rovman Powell had already amassed 10 runs off 4 balls from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, seemingly making it a formality for the Royals to secure victory.
But the veteran Bhuvneshwar saved his best for the last to trap Powell in front with a low full toss on leg to witness one of the most memorable finishes to a game this season.
Powell attempted to whip the ball away but was struck on the pads, with the replay confirming that the ball was hitting the leg stump.
The decision was reviewed but there was nothing on UltraEdge and the Ball Tracking came up with three reds.
Bhuvneshwar started off with a bang removing Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson for ducks in the opening over to leave RR at 1 for 2.
With a one-run victory over Royals in the last-ball thriller, SRH kept their IPL playoff hopes alive.
Following the win, SRH snapped their two-game losing streak and moved to the fourth spot with 12 points, same as Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, while RR stayed at the top with 16 points.
