The top batsmen around the world always looking for a way to improvise their shots but it happens rarely that they manage to execute and are sent back to the pavilion. The usually cool Kane Williamson slumped his head in disappointment as he failed to execute his scoop shot off Avesh Khan and ended up getting caught at short fine-leg. After losing their first match of the IPL 2022, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) had a dismal start while batting second against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
SRH bowlers put up a fine collective performance and managed to restrict the opposition to a total of 169/7. Washington Sundar was the best bowler for them as he managed to scalp a couple of wickets conceding 28 runs. Chasing the target of 170, SRH suffered an early blow in the innings with the wicket of Kane Williamson.
Avesh Khan was bowling the fourth over of the innings and he bowled the third delivery of over outside off stump. Williamson was facing the delivery and he walked across to scoop it over the head of the wicketkeeper. However, the shot went wrong and it caught the bottom of the bat. Andrew Tye made no mistake in taking a fine catch at short fine-leg. Williamson was seen disappointed with his dismissal and was seen nodding his head.
Lucknow Super Giants (playing XI): KL Rahul(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Manish Pandey, Evin Lewis, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Andrew Tye, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan
Sunrisers Hyderabad (playing XI): Kane Williamson(c), Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran(w), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Romario Shepherd, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Here is how the fans reacted to the dismissal:
