Gujarat Titans vs Rajasthan Royals, Qualifier 1: Jos Buttler scored 89 runs in 56 balls against Gujarat Titans. But despite this, Rajasthan Royals lost the first qualifier. The team also made a big mistake on Shimron Hetmyer. Know what is the matter?

In the first qualifiers of the Indian Premier League 2022 Rajasthan Royals to Gujarat Titans (Gujarat Titans vs Rajasthan Royals, Qualifier 1) Had to face defeat against Batting first, Rajasthan scored a huge score of 188 runs, but despite this, the team had to face defeat. Gujarat got the advantage of batting later at the Eden Gardens ground in Kolkata. Due to the dew, the bowlers got into trouble and the batsmen played open shots. Result Gujarat achieved the target 3 balls already. By the way, let us tell you that Rajasthan was not defeated only because of Due. Rajasthan made two such mistakes during the batting, for which the team had to bear the brunt.

Butler and Hetmyer are late!

There is no doubt that Butler played a great innings. He scored 89 runs in 56 balls. But perhaps looking at the Kolkata pitch, it seemed that this player took a while to speed up his innings. Butler scored only 39 runs in the first 38 balls. However, he gave 50 runs in the next 18 balls. But if Butler had accelerated his innings a little earlier, then perhaps Rajasthan would have crossed 200.

Shimron Hetmyer sent late

There is no doubt that Hetmyer has been given the role of finisher by Rajasthan. He hits big in the last overs. But perhaps in the first qualifier, Rajasthan sent him very late. Rajasthan brought this batsman in the 15th. In the pursuit of scoring runs fast, this player got out after scoring just 4 runs. Had Hetmyer been sent to the crease after Samson’s dismissal, perhaps Rajasthan could have crossed 200. Padikkal was sent at number four, who scored 28 runs in 20 balls. If Hetmyer had got that much time, he could have proved more dangerous by setting up. The important thing is that Butler was also batting slow during that time, so Hetmyer could play faster there. Well, in the coming matches, now Rajasthan will have to take care of these things, because these small things make a difference in the match.
