IPL 2022: PBKS vs SRH Review – Hyderabad’s winning march continues

Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to win their fourth consecutive game on the trot in IPL 2022 with a victory over the Punjab Kings in Match 28. Chasing a modest total of 151, Sunrisers paced their innings really well and the unbeaten partnership of 75 between Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram was vital in getting the job done for the orange army.

Earlier, SRH won yet another toss and put in Punjab to bat first. Stand-in skipper Shikhar Dhawan, Prabhsimran Singh and Jonny Bairstow were all dismissed quickly and it was down to Liam Livingstone and Shahrukh Khan to stitch a good partnership. Livingstone in particular played an aggressive innings of unbeaten 60 off just 33 and ensured that Punjab crossed 150. Umran Malik bowled a splendid final over, conceding no run over and picked up four wickets in the game.
