Earlier, Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bat first. KKR once again made notable changes to the playing XI as Umesh Yadav replaced injured Pat Cummins and Sam Billings replaced Sheldon Jackson.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s key players T Natarajan and Washington Sundar were back in the playing XI as they replaced Kartik Tyagi and Jagadeesha Suchith. Also, Marco Jansen was added to the playing XI in place of Farooqi.
Batting first, Kolkata Knight Riders openers Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane were able to add only 17 runs together as the former was cleaned up by Marco Jansen in the second over. However, Nitish Rana’s aggressive intent in the powerplay helped KKR score 55/1.
Jammu and Kashmir express pacer Umran Malik helped SRH make a comeback as he produced a double-wicket over in the 8th over by dismissing Nitish Rana and Ajinkya Rahane. Also, he dismissed KKR captain Shreyas Iyer in the 10th over.
In the end, Andre Russell’s brilliant unbeaten 49 runs knock and Sam Billings’ good 35 runs innings helped Kolkata Knight Riders score 177/6.
Chasing the target, Kane Williamson once again played an awful knock and he was dismissed on the second ball of the 6th over by all-rounder Andre Russell he was able to score just 9 runs off 17 balls, including one four. Soon Kiwi pacer Tim Southee was able to dismiss in-form batter Rahul Tripathi for 9.
SRH’s two of the most dependable batters Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram didn’t make any major contributions to the run chase as the former got out for 2 and the latter scored 32 runs.
In the end, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bowling unit kept doing a brilliant job and they were able to restrict Sunrisers Hyderabad at 123/8.

KKR are still alive in IPL 2022 and they’ve increased their chance by more than 20% for Playoffs.

It will just be a matter of time before we have 10 Indian captains in the IPL. With Overseas captains you always run the risk of getting stuck in case the player is not in form. Almost every year we see that with someone. #IPL

5 consecutive losses for Sunrisers now after 5 consecutive wins!#KKRvSRH #SRHvsKKR # IPL2022

Retention disasterclass vs Auction disasterclass game being lost by retention disasterclass this time.

Williamson is such a bad captain, he keeps sending Williamson, the batsman, to open even at this stage of the tournament.
– Krishna Kumar (@KrishnaKRM) May 14, 2022
SRH should really consider making Bhuvi the captain for next season. Should release Kane & Shepherd and look to buy them back. No way they cost nearly 22 Cr again. From the money saved, they can look to buy a good wrist spinner (Zampa, Rashid & Lamichanne as OS options available)
– Gurkirat Singh Gill (@gurkiratsgill) May 14, 2022
Russell is the MVP, what an asset, one of the best ever.
– Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) May 14, 2022
Hands down, Kane Williamson has to be the worst ever retention in IPL history. And I guess, no retention ever in the future, by any team, will be worse than this. New benchmark.

SRH never had that charisma to win IPL.# IPL2022 # IPL2022 #SRHvsKKR

What a poor choice my team SRH has made Kane over Rashid they should have thought Rashid was real good captain at his very age for afganistan and have very good amount of career left in him #SRH @SunRisers # ipl2022
– Manikanta Guddati (@ Manikanta26032k) May 14, 2022
49 * in 28 balls on a challenging, two-paced Pune surface, when @KKRiders was in some trouble, and then bowling a decisive spell of 16/3 in middle overs. Wrecked @SunRisers single-handedly tonight. Dre Russ has to be the ‘Man of The Match’ tonight. # IPL2022 , #SRHvsKKR
– Prabuddha Ghosh (@TheCluelessBong) May 14, 2022
SRH not doing good to themselves and to other teams who are in the race. Huge win this for KKR.

SO SO PROUD UNREAL DOMINATION @KKRiders 💜

SRH doesn’t even seem to be trying to boost their NRR at this point
Like there seems to be no inspiration in the locker room🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️#SRHvsKKR

Priyam Garg could have done better than Kane.
And we can buy a foreign all-rounder by releasing Kane@TomMoodyCricket
– Vinay (@ tibaaar000) May 14, 2022
@SunRisers please release all the scrap and build around the youth u have in the squad, no words just disappointed to see such a consistent team getting degraded #SRHvsKKR
– PNR’S tweetzzz (@sirsportslover) May 14, 2022
Zero intent from @SunRisers Batters in chasing the target of 178 against @KKRiders tonight. Highly disappointed with the performance. Need to plan better for next year @IPL
Bubbyeee Hyderabad from @IPL 2022. Well played Kolkata Knight Riders.

This year so far KKR has been just RKR (Russel Knight Rider) 🙂 #SRHvsKKR # IPL2022

@SunRisers @TomMoodyCricket @BrianLara it’s better you guys leave this disgraceful team behind and move on .. no passion or spine in the lineup
– vakgadde.eth 🐼 (@vakgadde) May 14, 2022
Powerplay is the biggest concern this season for @SunRisers
Kane has completely failed with too may dots and put pressure on other players ..# IPL2022#SRHvsKKR

No need to kick out kane. He is out of form. Plus good record as captain. Ek aur chance milna chahiye. Agle saal. Agar usme bhi fail ho gaya. Toh nikal do

@ IPL2023 should have relegation. Teams who do not know how to have a great team and or or underperform should be relegated except for @SunRisers. @gujarat_titans @LucknowIPL should be on the relegation as they do not know how to loose games and should learn from @SunRisers.

RR, RCB and SRH defeated. Everything was in our favor except the Umpires and Electricity 🥲. pic.twitter.com/5fLkoGTtu4
