SRH vs LSG 57th Match IPL 2024 Highlights 5-8-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Lucknow Super Giants. Indian Premier League 2024 fifty seventh match, played at Hyderabad.

After dominating the Lucknow Super Giants with the new ball for a while, Sunrisers Hyderabad stunned them by scoring 166 in just 9.4 overs, the highest 10-over total in any Twenty20 match. With 14 points from 12 games, the decisive victory moved them up to No. 3 on the points table and provided them with much-needed net run rate support. So vicious was the hunt that LSG decided not to use their Impact Player at all. It is only fitting that a lot of attention be paid to the outstanding batting of Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, who reached their fifties in 16 and 19 balls, respectively, and shared the greatest powerplay scores in T20 cricket history by scoring a century together during the second powerplay this IPL.

But SRH set themselves up for victory with the ball. With stats of 4-0-12-2 and only one wicket conceded, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the lead and shut down the top order of the LSG, which managed just 66 runs in the first 11.2 overs. The unbroken 99-run stand off 52 balls between Ayush Badoni and Nicholas Pooran ultimately proved to be catastrophically insufficient, signifying that the top order had not been aggressive enough. The Mumbai Indians were the first team at the IPL 2024 to be officially eliminated, and as a result, they were considered collateral damage on the night and were eliminated from the playoffs.

First, a note on the anxiety surrounding the SRH hitters. Part of the reason LSG chose to bat first was because of that worry. Subsequently, they encountered Bhuvneshwar, whose unwavering length attracted movement away from the field. Quinton de Kock, who scored 66 from 66 off Bhuvneshwar overall in Twenty20 cricket, was able to muster just 1 off 4 off him, including a close miss and his wicket, which was well collected by Nitish Reddy at deep-square leg.

Reddy produced an incredible catch that appeared effortless as he lifted the ball over his head, put it back into play, then stepped out and returned to finish the grab. However, Sanvir Singh quickly outdid him with a low catch, leaping forward at mid-on, to send Marcus Stoinis back. With 3-0-7-2, Bhuvneshwar put a stop to the powerplay. When you combine it with Shahbaz Ahmed’s 2-0-9-0, LSG’s powerplay of 27 for 2 was their worst of the year.

Legspinner V Viyaskanth, who was making his IPL debut, kept the lid on after the powerplay until Krunal Pandya struck Jaydev Unadkat for the 999th and 1000th sixes of the competition, giving the innings some momentum. The first one was a terrific straight hook over long-on to a slower bouncer at head height. We had no idea that, by the end of the evening, the shot would be forgotten.

KL When the boundaries were not coming in, Krunal was run out by the SRH captain and birthday boy while Rahul, 29 off 33, died attempting to match Pat Cummins’ speed. The first four overs of the innings had taken 9.1 overs, but Badoni and Pooran were consistently finding the boundary. Moving around in the crease and playing field manipulation, Badoni led the charge and reached a fifty in 28 balls. Toward the end, Pooran joined in, matching Cummins’ and T Natarajan’s pace. Among the fastest bowlers on show, Natarajan and Cummins combined for 97 runs.

It was a sensible enough idea for LSG to try to exploit the sluggish pitch by giving the two left-hand openers K Gowtham’s offspin. However, with Head and Abhishek, plans don’t really seem to matter. In the opening over, Head removed Gowtham for four, and in the second over, Abhishek dismissed Yash Thakur. Once more, Thakur appeared to be following a sensible bowling strategy: deep-square leg and sweeper cover, bowl into the pitch; but, Abhishek drew him in front of square. He then repositioned the two guys on the leg side, and Abhishek cleared a space for him to pass through. Plans meant nothing by the time they hit 25 in two overs.

Regardless of the ball’s velocity, length, or field, Head and Abhishek just chose their locations and sent the ball there. In total, the ball made that trip to the boundary approximately every other ball. Head’s kneel-down six into the sight screen, Abhishek’s lazy pick-up over wide long-on off Badoni’s offspin, or his extra-cover drive for six to finish the game are all options for you to consider. But no matter how hard you search, it would be difficult to locate a shot more spectacular than Head’s drive of Ravi Bishnoi for a massive six over long-off. Abhishek finished with 75 off 28 and Head with 89 off 30. Among all LSG bowlers, Gowtham had the greatest economy, at 14.50.
