On Monday night, the Gujarat Titans were defeated for the first time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season. Sunrisers Hyderabad, led by Kane Williamson, thrashed Gujarat by eight wickets to record their first loss of the season after three games. Hardik Pandya, who was captaining a franchise for the first time in the IPL, lost his cool at one point and began yelling at Mohammed Shami, his senior bowler. Mohammed Shami missed a catch by Rahul Tripathi off Hardik’s ball in the 13th over of Hyderabad’s innings, prompting Hardik to yell at his senior bowler.
Hardik Pandya hit two sixes in the same over, which enraged Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson. Rahul Tripathi played a shot in the air towards deep third man on the last ball of the over, which Shami couldn’t catch. After that, Hardik became enraged and began shouting at Shami. Pandya’s enraged video is quickly going viral on social media. The fans, on the other hand, are treating Pandya with respect and advising the captain to respect his senior bowler.
Gujarat has dropped out of the top four in the IPL points table following their defeat.
Gujarat Titans had won their previous three games and were the only team in the league to have not lost yet this season. Gujarat Titans have suffered a heavy defeat following their 8-wicket loss to Hyderabad. Gujarat was in the top three before this match, but after the loss, they have dropped to fifth place.
