Nothing is going well for Sunrisers Hyderabad as the Kane Williamson-led side slumped to their fourth straight loss in the IPL 2022, latest against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday at the Wankhede Stadium. After Virat Kohli scored his third golden duck in this edition, Faf du Plessis’ unbeaten 73 and Dinesh Karthik’s 8-ball 30, including three sixes in final over, propelled RCB to a massive 192/3 in 20 overs. Chasing a big total, SRH were off to a worst-possible start losing both their openers in the first over. Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram steadied the ship with a 50-run stand but with Markram falling off Wanindu Hasaranga started the slide. While Tripathi held one end, none of the remaining SRH batters could keep Hasaranga at bay as the Sri Lankan went on to finish with 5/18 in his four overs. Tripathi was finally dismissed for 58 with SRH eventually bowled out for 125 in the last over. Get highlights of SRH vs RCB.

Like every year. RCB are donning green jerseys in today's match as a part of their 'Go Green' initiative. The franchise aims to spread awareness about the need for a cleaner and greener environment through this initiative.
Kane Williamson (SRH): It is important for us we do the job with the ball upfront. Have two changes. Abbott and Gopal miss out. Farooqi and Suchith come in.
Faf du Plessis (RCB): Nice to win the toss from Kane, he's been winning the tosses. Big confidence for the group from the previous game. We are playing with same team.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson(c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran(w), Shashank Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Kartik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Umran Malik
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis(c), Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik(w), Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood
Faf du Plessis have won the toss and Royal Challengers Bangalore have chosen to bat first.
Delhi Capitals have been hit by COVID-19 again as a DC net bowler has tested positive hours before the scheduled start of their IPL 2022 match against Chennai Super Kings in Pune. The BCCI has asked the team members to stay in their hotel rooms until further notice.
The superstar players on both sides have been below par this season. If Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell have struggled in IPL 2022, Kane Williamson has not been able to convert his time and opportunity as an opener to his liking. The good news is both teams have found young men like Rajat Patidar and Mahipal Lomror (RCB), Aiden Markram and Shashank Singh (SRH) to make important and timely contributions.
The last time, SRH and RCB met in IPL 2022, Bangalore suffered a batting meltdown. RCB were all out for 68 in 16.1 overs, undone by the pace of Marco Jansen, T. Natarajan and Umran Malik. Hyderabad won the match by nine wickets. But since then, Jansen lost his place in the SRH side while Natarajan is currently injured.
Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore need to win their remaining matches in IPL 2022. SRH showed tremendous conviction after losing their opening two matches and then winning five-on-the-trot. But the slump hit them again. RCB's story is also similar. However, Bangalore are on the rise again.
