We are only one week into the IPL 2022 season, but fans have already witnessed nail-biting finishes and the league’s wealth of talent.
As with past seasons, the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) season has gotten off to an entertaining start. We are only one week into the tournament, but fans have already witnessed nail-biting finishes and the depth of talent brought together by the league.
The match between Lucknow Super Giants and Sunrisers Hyderabad also went to the wire, with Jason Holder bowling a brilliant final over to decide the outcome. With 16 required in the last over, the tall Windies seamer took three wickets and gave the same total as Lucknow defeated Hyderabad by 12 runs.
While we are unsure of the meaning of his post, it is reasonable to infer it was addressed at the Sunrisers, who have yet to win their first match of the season.
Meanwhile, Tiwary was included in the IPL auction for a base price of 50 lakh, but the Bengal batter failed to pique the interest of any of the ten participating franchises.
The club was outplayed in the opener by the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals, and just when things appeared to be getting easier for the Hyderabad franchise, they bottled it up against Lucknow.
During the post-match presentation ceremony, skipper Kane Williamson commented on the team’s performance, saying: “If you look at the performance, it was definitely much improved from our first outing.” The ball start was fantastic. We’re in a good position… if only we could dismantle the next collaboration. Hooda and Rahul deserve credit.”
“I think there were glimpses with the bat. It was near but not quite. It appeared to be a nice surface. On any given day, 170 is a struggle… you have to play well. However, we understood that if we could establish partnerships and get off to a respectable start, we would have sufficient firepower. Today didn’t exactly work. The men were superb in their respective duties with the ball. It’s a matter of margins. With a few ones and twos, the chase takes on a completely different shape.”
