In the 18th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) clinched a commanding victory over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

SRH dominated CSK in a rather one-sided affair

The match began with SRH winning the toss and opting to field first. CSK, despite their best efforts, could only manage to put up a modest total of 165 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in their allotted 20 overs. The CSK innings lacked the necessary acceleration, especially in the last five overs where they could only score 37 runs.

The standout performer for CSK was Shivam Dube, who scored a brisk 45 off 24 balls, hitting 4 sixes and 2 fours. However, his efforts were not enough to propel CSK to a competitive total.

In response, SRH chased down the target comfortably, scoring 166 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in just 18.1 overs. The star of the SRH innings was Abhishek Sharma, who played a blistering knock of 37 runs off just 12 balls, hitting 4 sixes and 3 fours. His explosive batting provided SRH with a solid platform for their successful run chase.

The partnership between Aiden Markram and opener Travis Head, who scored 50 off 36 balls and 31 off 24 balls respectively, further solidified SRH’s position. Their 60-run stand bolstered the team’s innings after Abhishek’s onslaught.

Hyderabad’s bowling unit showcased remarkable discipline, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being the pick of the bowlers, conceding only 28 runs in his 4 overs. This disciplined bowling performance was crucial in restricting CSK to a modest total.

This victory marked Sunrisers’ second consecutive home win and solidified their position at fifth in the IPL standings. On the other hand, CSK, despite being third in the standings due to a better net run rate, has a lot to ponder after two back-to-back defeats.
