Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson, after registering a seven-wicket win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), said it was a step forward. We took wickets consistently and then Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram formed a match winning partnership. Williamson said that the team performed well with both the ball and the bat and that is why we got such a result.
“It was a good performance in all respects. Marco Janssen and Aiden Markram are big players for us. Jansen’s bouncers with the new ball are amazing. On the other hand, Umran Malik is a brilliant talent and bowls consistently at the speed of 150. He is also continuously improving. In fact, all our players are working hard and constantly improving.
Rahul Tripathi, who became the player of the match, said, “I had a lot of fun. I shot at Varun continuously so that he could come under pressure. For the past few days, I was ill but the Hyderabad team supported me continuously. If there are hard days, there are good days too. I am very happy that I was able to play this innings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad did not have a good start in IPL 2022. The team lost its first two matches, but after that Kane’s team came back and won three matches in a row.
