Hyderabad kept their hopes of playing in the playoffs of the Indian T20 League 2022 alive by winning a thrilling contest against Mumbai. Batting first in the match Hyderabad posted a massive total of 193 runs in their 20 overs. While defending the total the Men in Orange came under pressure when batter Tim David played an aggressive knock and looked like will take the game away from them. But they held their nerves and emerged victorious in the end. After a win in the match, their hopes of progressing to the playoffs are still alive but they need to win their last match against Punjab and then wait for the results of the other matches.

As per the latest news, Hyderabad will be missing the services of their skipper and star batter, Kane Williamson for the remaining of the tournament. He is traveling back to New Zealand for the birth of his child. The development of Williamson was confirmed by the franchise through their official social handles. The Tweet by the franchise confirming the development read – “Our skipper Kane Williamson is flying back to New Zealand, to usher in the latest addition to his family. Here’s everyone at the #Riser camp wishing Kane Williamson and his wife a safe delivery and a lot of happiness!

Speaking of Williamson’s form in the tournament, he has been going through a dip in form. He has just scored 216 runs in the tournament at an average of 19.64 and a strike rate of 93.51. He has looked completely out of touch and seems to have lost confidence in his ability.

His lack of confidence with the bat in hand has also affected his captaincy. He has taken some bizarre decisions as the captain of the team. From persisting with himself as the opener despite the draught in his runs to using a spinner against power hitters in the death he has faltered in many cases. Amidst the terrible run, the break might be beneficial for the player as it will give time to reflect on his game.
