One of the top batsmen of the tournament:-
IPL 2022: Moody said in a post-match press conference, “Rahul Tripathi is batting brilliantly at number three and Aiden Markram is one of the top batsmen of the tournament batting at number four.
That’s why we thought that if something is going bad then why to change something that is going right for it.”
Williamson scored nine runs in 17 balls during their 54-run loss against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.
Moody (SRH coach Tom Moody) said, “Given the level of Kane, we believe in him, there is no doubt about his world-class ability.
That’s why we didn’t take this step because we saw in the tournament where the batsmen are doing well.”
Markram at number four and Nicholas at number five:-

Sunrisers Hyderabad was in the race for a place in the play-offs with five consecutive victories but after that they had to face defeat in five consecutive matches, making their path difficult.
IPL 2022: Knight Riders pacer Tim Southee has heaped praise on all-rounder Andre Russell, whose performance has kept the team alive with modest hopes of a place in the play-offs.
Southee said, “He did a great job throughout the tournament, not just with the bat but with the ball as well. There are few players in the world who can do special things and Russell is one of them.”
Reached the score of 177 runs for six wickets:-
Russell first scored an unbeaten 49 off 28 balls to take. The Knight Riders scored 177 for six while the team was in trouble. After losing five wickets for 94 runs.
