IPL- In a thrilling encounter of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) clinched a six-wicket victory over the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The game was marked by an enthralling showdown between bat and ball, as SRH successfully chased down CSK’s target of 166 runs.

Abhishek Sharma stole the show for SRH with a blistering start, treating the crowd to a spectacular exhibition of power hitting reminiscent of his previous innings against Mumbai Indians (MI).

SRH’s aggressive start with the ball paid dividends as CSK’s batting lineup struggled to capitalize on their innings. Earlier in the day, despite promising contributions from Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shivam Dube, CSK could only manage a total of 165 runs, with Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 31 off 23 balls being the highlight.

Pat Cummins led SRH’s bowling unit admirably, supported by Jaydev Unadkat and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, as they collectively restricted CSK’s batting lineup in the latter stages of the innings.
