SunRisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson said on Sunday that the former champions need not panic and focus on the job at hand after they lost their 4th successive game in IPL 2022 after an upswing. SRH were handed a 67-run defeat by Royal Challengers Bangalore in a one-sided contest at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
It was an insipid performance from SunRisers Hyderabad as they conceded 192 runs and bowled out for 125 in just 19.2 overs. Captain Kane Williamson’s poor run continued as he fell for a diamond duck, getting run-out without facing a ball while his opening partner Abhishek Sharma also fell for 0 as early as the first over.
Rahul Tripathi was the lone warrior as he hit a fighting fifty but it was not enough for SunRisers who were blown away by the Wanindu Hasaranga’s 5-wicket haul.
SRH were racing towards a playoffs berth as they shook off two defeats and won 5 on the trot to go to 10 points in just 7 matches. However, they have now fallen behind in the race for the top 4 with 4 successive defeats.
“For us, it’s looking to stay calm, we do need to touch on some areas to improve. We don’t need to overthink either. The margins are always very fine,” Williamson said after their loss.

SRH are at the 6th spot in the 10-team points table with 10 points from 11 matches but Williamson said a 6-day break before the next game will help them reassess and get back to winning ways.
We were outplayed today but we do have a little bit of a gap now. So we will look to reassess a little bit and get nice and clear on how we need to target our next matches and go and take it on a little bit better,” Williamson added.
Williamson also conceded that they need to do better with the ball against strong sides in the IPL.
RCB captain Faf du Plessis slammed eight boundaries and two sixes en route to his 50-ball 73 not out, his third fifty this season and seized the initiative after he lost his opening partner Virat Kohli on the first ball of the match.
The South African veteran along with Rajat Patidar (48 in 38 balls; 4×4, 2×6) laid a solid foundation with a 105-run third wicket partnership off 73 balls.
In the end overs, Dinesh Karthik decimated the SRH bowling attack, hitting 30 off just 8 balls, including 25 runs in the final over.
“That’s been quite the challenge. We need to turn it around because they have been above-par totals. I think earlier on in the comp that there was perhaps some assistance for the seamers. We have to get a little bit more creative,” he added.
SRH will next face Kolkata Knight Riders on May 14.
