Indian Premier League, 2022 |Match 54 |5/8/2022 Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Right then! That concludes the proceeding from here but as you might already be aware, the second match between Chennai and Delhi has already started so do join us there. Until then, cheers!
No second guess for the Player of the Match. Wanindu Hasaranga wins it for his five-wicket haul.
Hyderabad just did not arrive for this one! They were poor with the ball and in reply, chasing a big total, lost their openers in the first over itself. Then there was a little stand between Tripathi and Markram but when the time came to step on the ante, Markram fell. Tripathi was the only one who showed some fight with the bat with a half-century but he hardly got any support from the rest. It was just a very poor performance from them. This win is surely going to hurt Hyderabad and they now have lost four games in a row and need to pull their socks up if they want to make it to the playoffs.
A thumping victory for Bangalore! Their net run rate wasn't the best but this victory would surely help. It was their batters who set it up by scoring over 190 on this tricky surface. Faf du Plessis' brilliant innings and Dinesh Karthik's finish at the end has to be the reason for their victory. Saying that though, their bowlers and fielders also backed it up. A total of 7 bowlers were used by them and all the individuals could be happy with how they performed. Wanindu Hasaranga though was the pick. Siraj was a touch expensive but unlucky too. His figures could have been a lot different had he got support in the field. It though was a complete performance from Bangalore.
Harshal Patel to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, OUT! TAKEN! Hyderabad are bundled out on 125! Smiles all around the Bangalore camp and this is a very important win for them. A full ball, outside off. Bhuvneshwar Kumar tries to loft it over the long off fence but only gets elevation there and Faf du Plessis settles under it and takes the catch safely. Bangalore win by 67 runs.
