IPL 2022: 3 Most Memorable Encounters Of The Season For Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
1. RCB vs SRH (April 23, Mumbai)
Sunrisers Hyderabad bundled RCB out for their second-lowest total in the IPL history – 68. SRH left-arm pacers Marco Jansen and T Natarajan ran through RCB’s heart of the batting order.
Both the pacers used the extra bounce to their advantage, especially Jansen, who cleaned up RCB captain Faf du Plessis, got Virat Kohli for a golden duck and induced Anuj Rawat’s outside edge with an outswinger. Jansen picked all three wickets in a single over to put RCB on a backfoot.
Natarajan dismissed Glenn Maxwell before the Australian could pose any threat against them. Natarajan also ensured there was no display of grit from RCB’s lower-order as he cleaned up Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga.
SRH raced to the paltry target in just eight overs on the back of opener Abhishek Sharma’s 47 in 28 balls. The Orange Army thumped du Plessis & co by nine wickets to record their fifth straight win after losing the first two games.
