SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) ended their IPL 2022 campaign on a losing note as they suffered a five-wicket loss to Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Sunday (May 22) in the final league match fixture of the season.

While SRH managed to register a decent total of 157 after electing to bat first in the clash, they let the game slip in the second half with their dismal fielding showing. From dropped catches to misfields, Hyderabad fielders let their bowlers down with their ordinary efforts in the encounter.

The PBKS batters made merry of the run chase and the dropped chances ultimately cost SRH the game. Liam Livingstone, who was dropped twice by Washington Sundar, took the bowlers to the cleaners and ended up scoring an unbeaten 49 from just 22 deliveries.

Apart from Livingstone, opener Jonny Bairstow also got a reprieve early in the innings after Umran Malik dropped his catch off Washington Sundar's bowling in the second over itself.

Hyderabad fans were left disappointed with the performance from the IPL team's fielding unit and lambasted them for their lapses.

Here are some of the reactions:

Zero Mark's for SRH fielding efforts. One drop catch 2 run out Miss 2 Misfield cost extra 6 Run's

SRH finished eighth in IPL 2022

The Kane Williamson-led side showed glimpses of brilliance early on during this year's cash-rich league. However, they lost some steam in the latter stages and were eliminated from the race to the IPL 2022 playoffs.

They had a chance of ending their campaign on a high by coming up with an improved performance against PBKS. They stumbled in their final outing of the season and suffered an embarrassing defeat in a dead rubber.

The Hyderabad-based side managed just six victories from their 14 fixtures and ended up with 12 points. The 2016 champions finished eighth in the IPL points table 2022 after completing the league stage.
