Rajasthan Royals wonderfully started their IPL 2023 campaign by registering a massive 72-run win in their opening encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 2, Sunday. After being put into bat first, Rajasthan happily accepted the invitation and posted a humongous total of 203/5 in the first innings.

In reply, they restricted Hyderabad to 131/8 in their allotted 20 overs and started their IPL 2023 campaign on a winning note. As Rajasthan thumped Hyderabad, a hysterical moment from the second innings went viral on social media when star batter Jos Buttler was seen asking for an over from his captain Sanju Samson.

Rajasthan had complete control of the match in the second innings as SRH batters surrendered in front of their famed bowling attack and were reeling at 84/7 after 14.5 overs. Sensing a comprehensive victory for his side, Buttler made a gesture of bowling a delivery to Samson and asked for an over. The swashbuckling batter was seen smiling as his request was politely denied by the Rajasthan Captain.
