Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) stand-in captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar reflected on the IPL 2022 campaign for his side and felt that they could have done better in the second half of the season.

SRH lost their final match against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Sunday but they were already out of the tournament. After winning 5 of their first seven matches, SRH went on a losing streak which eventually cost them a playoff spot.

If you want to win a match, fielding should have been better. I wouldn’t say we were few runs short, we were many short… Match could have been closer. Fielding not up to the mark…

Last match of the season, we can reflect on the season and come back stronger next year. First half was brilliant. The second half was make it or break it. In the second half we didn’t come good as a team,” Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

When you have to win matches, you have to come good in all departments. Have to come back strong next year. Many positives; Umran is one of them. Look at Abhishek Sharma, and we can’t forget Rahul Tripathi. We haven’t been great in the middle order,” Bhuvneshwar noted.

Tripathi and Umran have been the standout performers for SRH. They finish in the 8th spot, however, with 6 wins and 8 losses in 14 matches played. As for PBKS, they end on 14 points with 7 wins and 7 losses.
