Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer’s fiery performances powered the Rajasthan Royals to an incredible comeback victory by three wickets over the Gujarat Titans in a thrilling Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday. Despite an initial target of 178, Rajasthan struggled at first, with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler dismissed by Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Shami, leaving the team with a shaky 26/2 at the end of the powerplay.

Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson then stepped in to stabilize Rajasthan’s innings, with Samson focusing on acceleration and Padikkal handling strike rotation. However, Rashid Khan’s experience led to Padikkal’s dismissal at 26(25) in 8.3 overs, followed by Riyan Parag’s departure at 5(7). Despite the setbacks, Samson and Hetmyer’s partnership brought Rajasthan back into contention.

Hardik Pandya’s gamble to introduce Noor Ahmad to the attack paid off, as he dismissed Samson at 60(32). Nonetheless, Hetmyer capitalized on the situation, smashing sixes as he pleased. The match reached its climax in Shami’s over, where he conceded 16 runs but took two vital wickets. With seven runs required in the last over, Noor Ahmad bowled to Hetmyer, who scored a match-winning six after a quick double, ending with an unbeaten 56(26)*.

Earlier, GT’s Gill scored 45(34) and Miller hit 46 runs, while Manohar made a swift 27(17). For RR, Sandeep Sharma claimed two wickets, while Trent Boult, Adam Zampa, and Yuzvendra Chahal each took one. RR opted to bowl first, with Boult dismissing opener Wriddhiman Saha early on. Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan recovered well before Sudharsan fell victim to a run-out in the fifth over.

Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya joined Gill at the crease, and their aggressive 50-run partnership pushed the team forward. Chahal, however, broke their momentum by dismissing Pandya for 28. Rajasthan bowlers then tightened their grip on Gujarat’s batting, with Sharma taking Gill’s wicket in the 16th over. Manohar’s aggressive 27 and Miller’s quick runs brought the Titans to a respectable 177/7 in 20 overs, but Rajasthan’s incredible comeback secured their victory.
