Sandeep Sharma, the pacer from Rajasthan Royals delivered a non-forgiving no-ball in the last over against Sunrisers Hyderabad which was wholly taken up by Abdul Samad to hit a six on it & take the victory for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Remaining true to its dramatic nature the IPL again gave the audience a spectacular win & an even more spectacular match.
Rajasthan Royals almost won the match when Abdul Samad was caught at long-off by Jos Butler, but the empire signaled a no-ball & Sharma had to throw the ball again. This time Samad was ready & was in no mood to repeat his last mistake, he hit a six on this ball & took the victory for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Making this match one of the most dramatic matches.
Former Cricketer & Chennai Super Kings pacer Lakshmipathy Balaji told in an interview with Star Sports,
“If we recollect the last over against CSK, Sandeep was able to pull back the game in the last three balls. Here he had another opportunity, but unfortunately that no ball cost him. He held his nerve and was able to keep things simple until the last ball was bowled.”
“For a moment he thought the match was over, but the sound of the siren came in a disheartening way. He will be regretting the no-ball forever. This one delivery will definitely be playing in his mind.”
