This IPL season doesn't seem like the best season for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). If previously this franchise team made it into the Indian Premier League playoffs consistently and last year they managed to bring home the wooden spoon for the first time in their IPL journey, now in IPL 2022, SRH's performance has fallen.
Even in their opening match, the team led by Kane Williamson has already lost twice. The defeat does not mean because their squad is weak. But because this Hyderabad-based team has not maximized the talent they have in the IPL this season.
SRH started IPL 2022 with a crushing defeat at the hands of the Rajasthan Royals. In the next match, they also lost to the Lucknow Super Giants even though Kane Williamson and his teammates actually had a quite good momentum during the match.
Talking about his team's loss to the Lucknow Super Giants in the second game, SRH captain Kane Williamson told broadcaster Star Sports that in fact, the SRH team's performance was much better than before, although this effort was not enough.
“I suppose if we look at the performance, it was a lot better than the previous game. We were a lot better with the ball. We were in a pretty strong position. Rahul and Hooda had an excellent partnership. To get to 170 from where they were was a good effort. It was close but not close enough.” said Williamson after the game.
