Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain Kane Williamson has been in horrible form in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL). Kane has scored 208 runs in 12 matches matches at poor average of 19 and pathetic strike rate of 93. He has been a burden on SRH team this season.
While chasing the big total of 178 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), SRH was dependent on Williamson to give a good start. But their skipper failed to do so once again. Kane Williamson managed to score just nine runs in 17 balls against Kolkata at MCA stadium in Pune. He played so many dot balls in the powerplay.
Williamson tried to play a cheeky scoop shot on the ball of Andre Russell. He completely missed the ball and it hit his stumps. Williamson looked disappointed with his wicket. SRH batting coach Brian Lara also didn’t look impressed with the batting of Kane Williamson.
Brian Lara hid his face with palms. SRH batting coach also shook his head in disappointment with SRH captain’s wicket. This moment caught attention of several cricket fans because Brian Lara is renowned for his calmness he brings to the team. Williamson is being trolled heavily on social media for his continuous failures.

‘It teaches you a lesson so some learnings for me there’ – Kane Williamson about his failures in IPL 2022
SRH captain Kane Williamson answered the question about his form in the post match presentation. Williamson said “[There are] Some consistencies to it (his own struggles), hit to the fielders, then try to hit big and walk back. It teaches you a lesson so some learnings for me there.”
Kane Williamson in the post match presentation also said that it was a fair total to chase. He said, “Largely the first half was reasonable without making more of a dent. It was a fair total and Russell got those big runs in the end. With the bat we weren’t able to get the momentum to set the platform or get those partnerships.”
