Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is locking horns with Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the last league match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In this season so far, the fans have witnessed some brilliant catches but in the second innings, SRH pacer Umran Malik dropped an easy catch.

SRH stand-in skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the toss and decided to bat first against the Punjab Kings. While SRH made a couple of changes to their squad as Romario Shepherd and J Suchith came in for Kane Williamson and T Natarajan, PBKS made three changes as Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Rahul Chahar, and Rishi Dhawan were replaced by Nathan Ellis, Shahrukh Khan, and Prerak Mankad.

The SRH openers could not make much of an impact as Priyam Garg was sent packing just for 4 runs by Kagiso Rabada. Rahul Tripathi and Abhishek Sharma who have done well in the season for their team did try to repair the innings but Harpreet Brar’s brilliant spell did not allow them to get away as he dismissed both of them for 20 and 43 respectively. Brar put the brakes on SRH’s innings as he dismissed Aiden Markram as well for 20 to finish with 3 wickets for 26 runs and managed to post 157/8.

Abhishek Sharma was the highest run-getter for the orange army as he scored 43 from 32 balls. Punjab Kings openers, Jonny Bairstow and Shikhar Dhawan gave them a good start. Bairstow was looking dangerous as he smashed three boundaries in the very first over of the innings.

In the next over he tried going after Washington Sundar and mistimed the ball. Jonny Bairstow tried to hit Sundar out of the ground on the fifth ball of the first and ended up getting the edge of the bat as Umran Malik was looking in a comfortable position to take the catch. But, Umran Malik made a mess of it as he spilled an easy catch much to the disbelief of Washington Sundar.
