Chennai: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) emerged victorious in the Qualifier 2 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, clinching a commanding 36-run victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. SRH’s stellar batting performance, coupled with a disciplined bowling effort, propelled them to a well-deserved victory, securing their place in the IPL 2024 final.

Opting to bat first, SRH showcased their aggressive intent from the outset, laying a solid foundation in the opening overs. Despite losing a few wickets early on, SRH continued to press forward, with Rahul Tripathi leading the charge with a spirited innings of 37 runs off 15 deliveries. Travis Head and Heinrich Klaasen steadied the innings, guiding SRH to a competitive total of 175 runs for the loss of nine wickets.

In response, RR faced early setbacks, losing key wickets at crucial junctures of the innings.
