SRH vs RR: Goodnight! 🌙 

So, Pat Cummins' Orange Army has finally ended their losing run, much to the delight of a packed house assembled at Hyderabad. This win has taken them to the number 4 spot while RR despite the loss are still sitting pretty at the top of the table. The two power-packed teams have dished out an edge-of-a-seat-thriller and let's hope we get another one tomorrow at Wankhede when MI take on KKR in the match 51 of this 17th edition of IPL.

We will be back too, with our entertaining and informative OneCricket Live Blog for that game, and till then, this is Aashay Chopade signing off on behalf of Anurag Dasgupta and our dedicated OneCricket family. Cheers!

SRH vs RR Player Of The Match: Bhuvneshwar Kumar!

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He bowled brilliantly with the new ball and in the final over, and his three-wicket haul proved to be the difference in the end.

23:38 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Match Summary!

What a match! The pendulum swung from one end to another, but SRH have come out on top in the end. It was a game of comebacks, SRH started off slowly with the bat after winning the toss, but Travis Head showed great maturity and then young Nitish Kumar along with ballistic Heinrich Klaasen took SRH to 201. 

In reply, RR got off to a worst possible start with Bhuvneshwar Kumar getting the better of both Buttler and Samson in the very first over. It was followed by a stunning 134-run partnership between Jaiswal and Riyan Parag but once both of them departed, things became tricky for RR as SRH bowled well at the death. It all came down to the final over, and then to the final ball with two needed and Powell on strike, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar outfoxed the power of the Caribbean powerhouse, and SRH have grabbed two crucial points.

23:33 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Take A Bow, Bhuvneshwar Kumar! SRH Win By 1-Run!

What a final over from the experienced campaigner! He knocked over Buttler and Samson in the very first over, and with 13 needed off the final over, he has managed to keep his nerve and take SRH to an important win after they looked down and out at one point in time.

23:23 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Heartbreak For Rajasthan Royals🥹

What an anti-climax!!!!! Powell is out, LBW on the final delivery! A full toss angling on the middle stump and we can expect Powell to hit it 99 times out of 100, but that is what pressure does, it has the ability to bring out funny things and that's what has happened here! Powell misses the full toss and SRH have registered a thrilling 1-run win! 

23:19 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Two Off The Final Ball! Choose Your Winner, Folks!

Rovman Powell puts in a desperate dive and completes a brace. What a commitment from the Windies T20I captain! He has hurt himself in the process, and has damaged his helmet as well!

23:18 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Tension Ho Raha Hai Re Baba!

23:16 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: 13 Needed Off Final Over; Over-Rate Penalty Applied!

Only four players allowed outside the 30-yard circle! Powell with the six off the last ball of the penultimate over has brought the equation down to 13 off the final over. This has been an edge-of-a-seat-thriller!

23:11 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Dhruv Jurel Gone...Orange Army Erupts!

You can never rule out the team that Pat Cummins is playing for! The man is leading from the front and this match has changed drastically now. What are RR doing here!

23:09 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: And....Hetmyer Falls! Just What The DOCTOR ORDERED FOR SRH

This is a big, big wicket! Natarajan bowls a low full toss and Hetmyer in a bid to hit one out of the ground ends up hitting it straight to long on. SRH are still in it!

23:04 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Is There A Twist In The Tale? 27 Needed Off 18!

The Caribbean duo of Powell-Hetmyer is in the middle and the target is not a big one given the power and quality of these two men. But this is cricket, and you can never rule out any possibility!

22:57 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Captain Cummins Strikes, Riyan Falls!

SRH are staging a comeback here! Cummins bowls it full and Riyan Parag tries to make a statement by pumping it down the ground. He fails to get the desired power though and ends up holding out at long on.

22:51 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live: Riyan Parag, The Man On Mission!

22:42 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Yashasvi-Head Bhai Bhai!

The partnership has been finally broken! Yashasvi Jaiswal falls in the same fashion as Head did in the first half. T Natarajan Bowls a yorker, outside off and Jaiswal in a bid to scoop it, ended up dragging it onto the stumps. He departed on a well-compiled 67 off 40 balls. SRH have an opening now!

22:37 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Samson Ruling Fans Hearts!

SRH vs RR Live Score: ICYMI - Here's How Jaiswal Silenced Cummins 🤭

22:26 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Reverse-Sweeping Parag Reaches His Fifty Now!

The comeback season of Riyan Parag just keeps getting better! What an effortless fluent knock this has been. He was dropped by Abhishek Sharma when he was starting off, and he is making SRH pay now.

22:24 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: It's Fifty Time For Yashasvi Jaiswal!

The talented southpaw has reached his fifty in just 30 balls! This is the class of the man, whenever he plays, he makes batting looks ridiculosuly easy.

22:15 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: 15 Rows Back!!! Parag Takes On Cummins In Style!

Cummins tries to bounce Riyan Parag out, but the young batter is too good for it, just stays calm, gets into a great position and pulls it to the second tier to stamp his authority.

22:07 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: RR Are Taking Control, Cummins Needs To Find Answers!

The young duo is batting beautifully here! They are playing freely and finding boundaries at regular intervals which has brought the pressure back on the home team. 

21:58 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: What Have You Done, Mr. Abhishek Sharma!

Riyan Parag has been dropped at extra cover! It was an uppish drive from Riyan Parag and Abhishek Sharma put in a good dive to his left, but could not hold onto an important catch. This could prove very costly!

21:50 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Jaiswal Joins The Party! 

Yashasvi Jaiswal has also joined Riyan Parag and this is how you play modern-day T20 cricket. They have lost two big wickets, but the young guns are not shying away from taking risks and the momentum is surely shifting now.

21:41 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Riyan Parag Counterattacks!

4,6,4 - The talented Riyan Parag has decided to take on Bhuvi here! Much needed this for RR. This will disrupt Bhuvi's rhythm for sure and Parag has made sure that Bhuvi does not bowl his third over in this first spell.

21:39 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Orange Army Roaring At Hyderabad!

21:32 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: GONEEEE!! 😱

Another one bites the dust. Bhuvneshwar Kumar on fire! Stunning display of swing bowling as the ball nips back in and castles the stumps. Samson was clueless. No feet movement whatsoever. Exceptional!

21:28 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Impact player Buttler fails 😰

Unbelievable! First delivery to Buttler and Bhuvi strikes! In-dipper, typical Bhuvi Kumar delivery and the outside-edge is safely taken at slips. HUGEEEEEE WICKET!!!!

21:26 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Let the chase begin!!!!

The players are out, with Rajasthan facing a stern test. Umpire has signalled for an impact sub, with Jos Buttler coming in for Yuzi Chahal.

For SRH, Unadkat comes in for Anmolpreet as the impact sub.

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Klaasen finishes in style!

21:11 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: SRH do breach 200-run mark!

Fifth time this season that SRH have managed to breach the 200-run mark. What an effort from Nitish Kumar, what an effort by Klaasen. Take a bow, SRH. Despite Travis Head struggling, it was the Nitish Kumar show which stole the show. SRH started slowly, but Head picked up the pacer as he crossed the 30-run mark.

However, the star of the innings was Nitish, who played a brilliant counter-attacking innings and remained unbeaten on 76 off 42. Klaasen, too, played a sensational knock, and gave full support with a quick-fire 19-ball 42. Can RR win the game from here on? We'll find out soon...

21:10 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: 193/3, Can SRH finish on a high?

7 runs needed for 200 and Klaasen on strike. This will be interesting......

19 overs gone, SRH are 186/3. 14 runs needed in the last over, can they breach the 200-run mark? We'll find out......

21:02 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Stat attack!!!

Chahal has bowled his most expensive spell in IPL history. His figures read - 4/62 in 4 overs. SHAMBOLIC!

21:00 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: There's no stopping Nitish Kumar!

74* the highest score by Nitish Kumar in T20s. This has been a scintillating innings by the youngster. While Head was struggling, he took the responsibility and was the chief aggressor.

20:57 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Watch how Head's innings ended 👀

20:54 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: No remorse for Chahal, Klaasen joins the party 😱

11 sixes in the last 43 delivery. Yes, these are the stats of Chahal when bowling to Klaasen. The Proteas batter once again smashed back-to-back hits as Chahal has no clue what's happening.

20:52 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: 6, 6: Nitish Kumar hammers Ash!

The SRH youngster is batting on a different surface altogether. Samson will be regretting not finishing Ashwin's quota early. Two back-to-back sixes andAnna has been rattled.

20:49 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Nitish Kumar shines under pressure!

Second fifty of the tournament for the youngster. Another brilliantly paced innings, with fifty off 30 deliveries. Job still not done yet, he need to take SRH to a grand total.

20:44 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Headache ends for RR, Avesh strikes!

Well, at-least a ball later Head departs. Avesh roars as he gets the big fish. Full on the stumps. Head shuffles across and fails to get a bat as the ball shatters the stumps. HUGE, HUGE wicket in the context of the game.

20:42 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Is Travis Head a goner??

Head survives a Sanju Samson masterclass. The SRH opener was out of the crease, as Samson throws it straight back to the batting end.

The decision goes upstairs and despite Sanju's brilliant game-awareness, Head just managed to put his bat down.

20:40 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: The old Travis Head is back! 😍

Ladies and gentlemen, Travis Head is back. He was struggling for runs initially, but is now back to his imperial best, smashing sixes for fun. Watch out everyone...

20:35 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: SRH on the move now! RR, beware

20:29 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Nitish Kumar, take a bow!!

He has decided to target RR's best bowler, Yuzi Chahal. A six, followed by a sumptuous boundary. It has certainly rattled the Rajasthan camp, who had the game in the palm of their hands, a couple of overs ago.

Nitish Kumar has decided, he'll take down Chahal. A flat-batted six, straight over the bowlers' head. 21 runs in the over.

20:26 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score; Fifty up for Head!!

Not his most fluent innings, but Head has churned out runs for his side. Monstrous mentality prevails once again. He completes his fifty in 37 deliveries, and will look to up the ante from here on.

20:23 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score; Trouble for RR! 😰

Jurel, has been one RR's key player, and there is a possibility that the keeper-batter won't take any part in the ongoing clash. The hamstring injury looks a bit serious.

20:20 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: This was funny 😂

20:17 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Sandyyyy Sharma supremacy

20:15 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Oh ho, Jurel in pain 🥺

Not a good sign if you are love RR. Jurel is hobbling and is struggling to stay on his crease as he walks off. Seems like he has pulled off a hamstring.

20:13 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score; Welcome break for Head!

Finally after ages, he has cleared the fence. Slightly short from Chahal, and Head says, thank you so much. He clears the mid-wicket fence with ease. Is this the moment of truth? Can he break the shackles?

Just as I type, Head smacked another six and followed it up with a boundary. The momentum changing over is here.

20:06 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Watch Abhishek's colossal hit Vs ASH-WIN

The SRH opener looked good and even hammered Ashwin for a magnificent six, but couldn't go on and make a big one today.

20:03 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Avesh had the last laugh 😅

20:00 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: SRH struggling for runs

6 overs have ended and SRH are struggling for runs. 37/2 for them and this has been their worst power-play in this IPL season. RR have been top-class with their bowling efforts. Head holds the key for SRH.

19:55 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Another failure for Anmolpreet!

This has been the story of Anmolpreet in IPL 2024. Failure, after failure. He had the chance to showcase his worth in the ongoing match, but the right-hander batter chips a Sandeep Sharma length ball straight to the short mid-wicket fielder.

19:53 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Brilliant captaincy by Sanju!

He did missed a simple stumping chance, but has been brilliant as a leader. The decision to bring in Ashwin against the two left-handers was a smart move, which paid off eventually.

19:49 (IST) May 02

Well, here comes Anmolpreet Singh, the next batter.

19:48 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Abhishek is a goner!!!

The wicket was coming, and that's a big one. Abhishek departs for 12. The pressure was building as SRH had failed to get out of the jail. The half-hearted pull shot is caught at deep square leg.

19:46 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: What have you done, Samson? 🥲

He misses a simple stumping chance. Ashwin with a beautiful flighted delivery as Abhishek was deceived by it and misses it completely. The SRH batter was out of his crease, but Samson misses it.

19:43 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Samson goes upstairs for review!

Reckon it's for lbw. Head dances down the track and pushes the Ashwin delivery towards the off side for a single. Ashwin with a subtle appeal for lbw. The bat-pad were close to each other. The decision is pending.....

Ohhhhh, close shout. The wicket was umpire's call. Head survives and breathes a sigh of relief.

19:39 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Batao batao 🤔

19:37 (IST) May 02

28 sixes for Abhishek Sharma this season 😱

19:35 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: And Abhishek is off and running!

The SRH opener welcomes the experienced Ashwin with a monstrous hit. Welcome to the attack, Anna. He steps down the track and slaps it over the bowlers' head.

19:35 (IST) May 02

Ashwin comes into the attack. Brilliant tactical move by Samson!

19:33 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Unwanted record for Parag!

The RR player has dropped 5 catches this season. A terrific fielder, but the fielding standard has been below-par.

19:30 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Parag drops Head 😱

PARAG DROPS TRAVIS HEAD! Has the RR player dropped the match as well? Head slashes hard and the outside-edge flies towards Parag at point who spills it. Difficult chance, but should have grabbed it.

19:28 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Let the game beginnnnn!!!!

The players are out, the umpires are out and the crowd is etching for the game to begin. We are in for a run-feast, so, brace yourselves everyone. As expected, Boult gets the new ball in hand. Will he get a wicket in first over?

19:27 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Total number of sixes today? 

Bold prediction - The most number of sixes in an IPL game record will be broken tonight. Bookmark it.

Just 5 minutes left for the action to commence. Abki baar kitne paar? Will SRH break their own scoring record? This will be an interesting game.

19:20 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Baffling decision from SRH 🤔

Bringing in Markande was a good choice, but why to bring in Jansen in place of Markram? Could have started with Glenn Phillips, who is also a handy off-spinner. Will the decision backfire? We'll see..

19:12 (IST) May 02

SRH vs RR Live Score: Big Tactical Change From Pat Cummins & Co.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have brought in Marco Jansen for Aiden Markram which means that Jaydev Unadkat will miss out in this game. Mayank Markande will most likely come in as an Impact Player while RR who have been the team to beat this season, are playing an unchanged

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Proud moment for Samson ❤️

The Rajasthan Royals captain has toiled hard over the years, and was finally given a chance in the Indian team for T20 WC 2024. Samson has been exceptional, both as a batter and the leader of the side, and could be India's X-factor heading into the mega tournament in West Indies/USA.

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Hyderabad pitch report!

Good for batting, that has been the tradition of the Rajiv Gandhi stadium. Square boundaries are very short, which will benefit the big-hitters. Plenty of firepower in both the teams, so expect a high-scoring contest.

18:08 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: The points table after match no. 49

The race to the playoffs is heating up. SRH are at the 5th position and a win here against RR will take them to the top-4. The task won't be easy, as they are up against a rampant RR side, sitting at the top.

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Team Previews


The Sanju army has been on fire in IPL 2024. They have won 8 matches out of 9 and have 99.99% sealed their place in the playoffs. Notably, everyone has contributed in the stellar IPL campaign, and that has been a good sign for the team. Buttler is scoring runs freely, Jaiswal is back amongst the runs, and Samson is playing some of his best cricket ever.

The bowlers have been excellent, with Sandeep Sharma emerging as the best bowler of the tournament. SRH have been an aggressive batting unit this season, but they'll face a stern test against this Rajasthan bowling lineup.

17:32 (IST) May 02

SRH Vs RR Live Score: Team Previews


Arguably the most explosive batting unit of IPL 2024, SRH have been a revelation this season. Their see the ball and hit it approach has built an excitement amongst the SRH fans, but the back-to-back losses has really hurt their momentum.

The team heavily relies on their explosive batters and when they fail, the team falters. The bowling is a cause of worry. Barring T Natarajan, the rest of the bowlers have gone for plenty and skipper Pat Cummins need to find a solution before the game against RR. Cummins will also hope that the likes of Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klaasen show their class against a potent RR attack.

17:27 (IST) May 02

We are slowly but steadily reaching the business end of the IPL 2024, and interestingly we still don't know the top-4 teams who'll make it to the playoffs. Rajasthan Royals, perhaps the only team who know their fate, having solidified their position at the top.

Today's IPL game holds a lot of significance for SRH, considering that they have lost their last two IPL matches. The excitement is building up, the fans are eager for a cracking contest. Will SRH break their losing streak tonight? Join me, Anurag Dasgupta and Aashay Chopade, as we bring you all the updates from this cracker of a contest between SRH and RR.
