Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) CEO Kavya Maran celebrated enthusiastically after the team’s decisive victory over Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2024 on Friday (May 24) at Chepauk Stadium.

After losing the toss, SRH batted first and posted 175/9 in 20 overs, thanks to crucial innings from Heinrich Klaasen (50) and Rahul Tripathi (37). Left-arm spinners Shahbaz Ahmed and Abhishek Sharma laid the groundwork for Sunrisers’ victory, taking five wickets between them in their eight overs.

Kavya Maran, in the stands, was ecstatic as SRH secured their place in the finals with a convincing win over RR. She was seen dancing and celebrating the victory with those around her.

“The boys have been fantastic all season” –SRH captain Pat Cummins after their victory

During the post-match presentations, SRH captain Pat Cummins reflected on their season’s performance, stating:

“The boys have been fantastic all season, there’s been a great vibe around the team, you could see the way they played. Final was the goal at the start of the tournament – we made it. We knew our strength was our batting, so were were pleased to lose by pushing our boat a bit with our batting.”

Cummins also praised Abhishek Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed, and the other bowlers for their successful defense against RR. He added: “That was a surprise, tried to sneak one out of Abhishek with a couple of right-handers. He bowled beautifully, there was a lot of grip, and those two in tandem, won it for us.”

”170-odd turn into tough chases. Couple of wickets and you never know. For the whole franchise, there’s 6 or 7 of us in the coaching staff who put their heart and soul into this team. Really gratifying for them all.”

Sunrisers Hyderabad has made it to the IPL final after a six-year gap, as their last appearance in the summit clash was in 2018 when they were defeated by the Chennai Super Kings led by Kane Williamson.
