On Sunday, May 7, at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad played in the 52nd match of the Indian Premier League 2023.

When the team required five runs off the penultimate ball, Sandeep Sharma withdrew Samad, signalling the end for SRH. It was a no-ball because Sandeep had overstepped, which was fortunate for SRH.
