IPL 2023: KKR didn’t defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad, as they lost the game on their own, says Brain Lara.


Brian Lara, the legendary West Indies cricketer, played in the Indian Premier League (IPL) during the inaugural season in 2008. He was part of the Mumbai Indians franchise and played in 11 matches, scoring 250 runs at an average of 31.25 and a strike rate of 123.15.

Lara’s best performance in the IPL came against the Chennai Super Kings, where he scored a match-winning 83 off just 53 balls. He was also the first player to score a century in the IPL, achieving the feat in a match against the Kochi Tuskers of Kerala in 2011 while playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. And the head coach of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the ongoing cricket league.

The 47th match of the Indian Cricket League ended on May 4, in which Sunrisers Hyderabad lost by just 5 runs against the Kolkata Knight Riders team. And this disappointed the head coach of the losing team, Brain Lara. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad went down in the point table with six points out of nine matches. KKR increased their points, which was reflected on the competition chart table in the IPL 2023.

Chasing the 172-run target was not a big deal for Sunrise’s team, as they missed the chance to overcome their failure in the T20 league. However, we lost many powerful players’ wickets during the match against KKR, and that is the reason Sunrisers Hyderabad lost the match on Thursday, says Brain Lara in the post-match press conference.
