IPL 2022: “SRH paid 14 crores for Cheteshwar Pujara with golden beard!”


Kane Williamson’s SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) slumped to their fifth consecutive defeat in the IPL 2022 season, this time losing by 54 runs against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Saturday, May 14.

Chasing 178 runs to win a crucial encounter, SRH could only manage 123/8 and this loss has made their chances of making it to the playoffs even more difficult. Kane Williamson once again struggled to give his team a solid start in the powerplay.

The SRH captain could only score 9(17) as he was cleaned up by Andre Russell while trying to attempt a scoop shot. His innings once again put pressure on other batters and the required run rate proved to be too much for them to cope with in the end.

Fans on Twitter slammed Kane Williamson for being adamant about opening the batting and once again wasting the powerplay. Some also trolled SRH for losing five games on the bounce after being in second position on the points table at the halfway stage.

Here are some of the reactions:

Kane Williamson’s Total Batting Impact this season is now -111, the worst for any batter in the history of the IPL.

It was fun seeing the kavya maran auction hype when srh went on a winning streak & appreciated the brainy kane pick over warner & rashid

Is Kane Williamson the worst retention of all time? 14 crore for 200 odd runs in 12 games at a SR of 92.What makes it worse is the fact that he was coming back from a long injury layoff, so the poor run isn’t even a surprise.

109 needed in 9 overs at 12+ RPOIf Kane Williamson hadn’t happened, 118 from 71. Less than 10 RPO twitter.com/KrishnaKRM/sta…

Can’t even call Kane a specialist captain after he gave Sundar the 20th over.

Hands down, Kane Williamson has to be the worst ever retention in IPL history. And I guess, no retention ever in future, by any team, will be worse than this. New benchmark.

SRH should really consider making Bhuvi the captain for next season. Should release Kane & Shepherd and look to buy them back. No way they cost nearly 22 Cr again. From the money saved, they can look to buy a good wrist spinner (Zampa, Rashid & Lamichanne as OS options available)

Kane Williamson in this IPL 2022 – 12 innings, 208 runs, 92.86 strike rate. It is very shocking and unacceptable to have such numbers for a great player like Kane Williamson.

Abhishek Sharma is a better opener than Kane Williamson.Arsdheep Singh is a better death-overs bowler than Kagiso Rabada.This is IPL.

Again, better Kane finds a permanent solution for that elbow, better it will be for his batting. Came into the tournament with absolutely no practice
