On Saturday, there were two matches in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, with SunRisers Hyderabad beating Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore coming out on top against Mumbai Indians. SRH restricted CSK to 154/7 and chased down the target comfortably thanks to a brilliant 50-ball 75 by Abhishek Sharma. It was his first IPL half-century. In the second game, Mumbai Indians suffered a collapse and could only put on 151/6 on the board, largely due to Suryakumar Yadav’s counter-attacking knock. However, Anuj Rawat hit his maiden half-century for RCB as they comfortably chased down the target, registering a seven-wicket win.
