The 54th game of the IPL 2022 saw Sunrisers Hyderabad lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. SRH had lost their previous three encounters and were looking for a much-needed win, whereas RCB were backed by a victory from their last encounter and had the required confidence. RCB sailed past the Orange Army, defeating SRH by 67 runs.

RCB did not have a good start to the game as, winning the toss and electing to bat, they lost Virat Kohli in the very first ball of the day for a golden duck. But the early blow did not shake RCB’s confidence as skipper Faf du Plessis and Rajat Patidar put up a 105-run partnership for the second wicket and kept the scoreboard booming. Patidar (48 off 38) fell short of two runs from getting his half-century, but Glenn Maxwell hopped in as great support for Du Plessis.

Maxwell (33 off 24) managed to play some good shots during his tenure and went with the flow of the game. Du Plessis was steady throughout the innings and gave ample chance for his partners to play freely. RCB’s innings was steadied by the SRH bowlers in the middle overs, but it did not take long for Dinesh Karthik to step into the finisher’s role and take his team to a big total. Karthik (30* off 8) went destructive in the final over, Du Plessis (73* off 50) held his game tight as the two remained unbeaten and RCB scored 192/3.

Wanindu Hasaranga’s fifer helps RCB move past SRH

Coming to the chase, SRH faced a nasty blow when both the openers – Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma – had to walk back to the pavilion in the first over. While Williamson was run out for a diamond duck, Sharma was dismissed for a three-ball duck by Maxwell. After the two early wickets in the powerplay, Aiden Markram (21 off 27) and Rahul Tripathi anchored the innings for SRH as the latter played some big shots to keep the hopes alive.

It was Wanindu Hasaranga’s dreamy spell that helped RCB gain an upper hand over SRH. Hasaranga scalped a five-wicket haul to take down the SRH middle-order batters, and thanks to Josh Hazlewood who managed to pick the in-form Tripathi (58 off 37) to give his team the much-needed breakthrough. RCB continued the winning momentum by restricting SRH to 125/10, thereby winning the match by 67 runs.
