In the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2022, Sunrisers Hyderabad had to face a crushing defeat in the first two matches. In such a situation, it was being said that perhaps this team will not be able to perform well in this tournament, but in the next four matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad has performed in such a way that the front teams have been seen to be all four. The same situation happened with Punjab Kings in the 28th match of IPL 2022.
Playing without regular captain Mayank Agarwal, the Punjab Kings team had to bat first after losing the toss and Hyderabad fast bowlers Umran Malik and Bhuvneshwar Kumar destroyed the team. Batting first, Punjab Kings were bundled out for 151 runs. Malik took 4 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 3 wickets. Liam Livingstone played a strong innings of 60 runs for Punjab Kings.
At the same time, Sunrisers Hyderabad, chasing the target of 152 runs, did not start well, but Rahul Tripathi with Abhishek Sharma and Aidan Markram with Nicholas Pooran gave the team victory. Markram returned unbeaten on 41 runs in 27 balls and Pooran 35 off 30 balls, while Rahul Tripathi made 34 and Abhishek Sharma scored 31 runs to put the team in a good position.
This is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fourth consecutive win in IPL 2022 and with this victory, Hyderabad’s team has now made it to the top 4 in the IPL 2022 points table. Only four teams have won four matches each in the 15th season of IPL and Hyderabad is also a team among them. At the same time, Punjab Kings had to face their third defeat in IPL 2022. The captain in this match was Shikhar Dhawan.
