IPL 2024: Sachin Tendulkar Amazed by SRH's Outstanding Shows Against DC

Sachin Tendulkar Amazed by SRH’s Outstanding Shows Against DC: The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024’s most vicious teams are the Surisers Hyderabad (SRH). Every time the Orange Army plays a group stage game, they break records, led by the recently appointed Pat Cummins.

Their most recent victory was on Saturday night when they defeated Delhi Capital by an enormous margin of 67 runs in their own turf. This was their third 250-plus total in the current competition.

Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head, the openers, mounted an attack on the DC bowlers, amassing 131 runs for the first wicket in the Powerplay alone. With six sixes and eleven boundaries in a 32-ball performance of 89, the Australian batsman top-scored.

All-rounder Shabaz Nadeem made a half-century down the order to help the SRH record 266/7 in 20 overs.

DC responded by attempting to match SRH’s ferocity with a few early pyrotechnics. Abhishek Porel added a 22-ball 42 to help his team gain a fast start in the massive chase, which was spearheaded by Jake Fraser-McGurk’s 15-ball half-century.

With five balls remaining, the hosts were dismissed for 199 after running out of steam due to their dismissals.

Sunrisers’ exploits continue to surprise the experts of the game. Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar heaped huge praise on the Cummins & Co. for their all-round show in Delhi on Saturday.

“What is it with @SunRisers that they’ve gotten past 260 thrice in this season alone! Today was a game where they completely outclassed @DelhiCapitals. They, of course, batted well thanks to a mind-boggling start by @travishead34 & @IamAbhiSharma4 and a wonderful finish by Shahbaz. And in the 2nd half of the game, they bowled much better than DC, with their variations proving to be very effective. Well played, SRH,” Tendulkar wrote on X.

Captain of DC Rishabh Pant said his team was practically playing catch up the entire time after Sunrisers Hyderabad produced a massive “power play” by hammering 125 runs to set a new IPL record.

“I think power play was the difference. We were just catching up throughout the match. That was the massive difference. Hopefully, we will come back with more thought process and clear mindset,” said Pant.

“The only thought process behind that (deciding to bowl first) was we thought there would be some dew but it didn’t come. I thought if we could restrict them to 220-230, we would be in with a chance,” he added.

MI Skipper Hardik Pandya Gives A Big Statement After Loss Against CSK: Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya grabed Dhoni's game plan, highlighting the unseen influence he exerts from behind the stumps for CSK.

MI Skipper Hardik Pandya Gives A Big Statement After Loss Against CSK: Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya grabed Dhoni’s game plan, highlighting the unseen influence he exerts from behind the stumps for CSK.

Hardik Pandya noted all the incident during their chase of 207 runs. However, MI lost by 20 runs as a result of Matheesha Pathirana’s brilliant four-wicket effort, which changed the tide. Ruturaj Gaikwad, the skipper of CSK, repeated Pandya’s words, complimenting Dhoni on his significant 4-ball-20 and highlighting the young wicketkeeper’s important sixes.

Hardik Pandya said: “It (target) was definitely gettable, but they bowled pretty well. Pathirana was the difference. They were smart with the plans and their approach. They got the hang of it, there’s a man behind the stumps (Dhoni) who tells them what’s working, and that helps. It (pitch) was holding up a bit and getting difficult.”

“It was about batting well and keeping the intent. We were going quite well (in the run chase) till Pathirana came into the attack and took those two wickets. It was about what is best at that time, we could have done something different. I like to play percentage cricket, it would have been difficult for him (Dube) against seamers rather than spin. We are on the road for the next four games, need to play good cricket, need to keep the intensity high.”

Gaikwad also provided insight into the tactical choices taken throughout the game by talking about the calculated decision to choose Ajinkya Rahane as the opening batsman.

Overall, Dhoni’s strategic prowess and the critical moments that affected the game’s outcome were acknowledged by both captains.

Gaikwad said: “I would have taken 6 overs 60 at the powerplay. You need to be on the mark with bowling and batting at this venue. Our Malinga bowled really well today, he nailed those yorkers. Not to forget, Tushar and Shardul also did well. (On plans ahead) I think we need to keep it simple, encourage all to be in a good headspace and continue the same way. Jinks was carrying a bit of a niggle, so thought it was better for him to open. I’m fine batting anywhere, plus it is the added responsibility as the team captain.”
