SRH failed to reach a huge target of 192 set by RCB. First, in the over of Glenn Maxwell, SRH lost Kane Williamson for a golden duck after a run and then in the last ball of the over, Maxwell sent back Abhishek for a duck.

Only Rahul Tripathi tried to revive the innings with his 58 off 37 balls by smashing 6 fours and 2 sixes. But Josh Hazelwood got rid of the batsman in the 16th over.

Aiden Markram (21), Nicholas Pooran (19), Jagadeesha Hasaranga (2), Shashank Singh (8), and Umran Malik became the prey to Wanindu Hasaranga. Hasaranga conceded 18 runs in his four overs and even bowled a maiden over. He also completes 20 wickets in IPL 2022.
