SRH Head Coach Exhausted After Heavy Defeat; Said, ‘Our players played well, but Virat…’
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets on Thursday (May 18). The 65th match of IPL 2023 was played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Hyderabad team performed well in this match. However, they eventually lost the match. After the defeat, Hyderabad head coach Brian Lara admitted that Virat Kohli was at his best against his team. However, he also said that it was difficult to explain how his team had lost six out of seven matches at home. This also ended their chances of making it to the play-offs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, who were already out of the play-offs, scored 186 runs for the loss of 5 wickets on the strength of Heinrich Klaasen’s brilliant century. However, on the strength of Virat Kohli’s 63-ball 100 and captain Faf Du Plessis’ 71, the two put on a 172-run partnership for the first wicket. Due to this, Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 8 wickets. Also, Klaassen’s efforts backfired.
After Hyderabad’s ninth loss in 13 matches, Brian Lara interacted with the media. At this time he said that, “Our players showed a good game. However, Virat Kohli did his best against us. Faf has been doing well for RCB throughout this season. He still has the orange cap. Thus we were up against two world-class players. Overall I believe our players put in a good effort.”
This time, the team could not say how they lost 6 matches at home. “It’s very difficult to say sitting here,” he said. However, we have consistently performed well. We didn’t expect to win one out of seven matches at home, but we did.”
Hyderabad team is at the last i.e. tenth position in the points table with 8 points after winning 4 out of 13 matches. Hyderabad’s last match is against Mumbai Indians on May 21. It will be important to see how the Hyderabad team performs in this match. (ipl 2023 srh head coach brian lara on virat kohli and faf du plessis read here)
