However, the side posted a great target on the board, Bhuvneshwar Kumar stole the show for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as he went on to take a fifer, the first time he has scalped more than four wickets in an inning since IPL 2018. The Indian pacer took two in two and then dismissed the third in form for a run-out to complete a team hat-trick.


On the first delivery of the 20 th over, Bhuvneshwar went on to dismiss in-form batter Shubman Gill. He later dismissed Rashid Khan on the very next ball. Next to come out to bat was impact player Anmolpreet Singh, but was dismissed on the third delivery of the over with B. Kumar hitting the bullseye to complete a team hat-trick.


Talking about the team’s performance so far in the tournament, the Aiden Markram-led side still has some bleak hope of qualifying in the Playoffs. However, if they lose the match tonight, they will come the second team to be eliminated from the IPL 2023 Playoffs race after Delhi Capitals.
