Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) edged past Rajasthan Royals (RR) by a nail-biting margin of 1 run in a dramatic finish to their IPL 2024 encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The match witnessed exceptional bowling by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and a thrilling display of emotions from both sides.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar Steals the Show

Bhuvneshwar Kumar emerged as the hero for SRH, taking crucial wickets at key moments. He started the match on fire, dismissing both Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson for golden ducks in his opening over, leaving Rajasthan reeling at 0/2. His accurate swing bowling continued to trouble the Royals batsmen throughout the innings, and he finished with a well-deserved 3-wicket haul for just 41 runs, earning him the Player of the Match award.

Royals Fight Back, But Tension Mounts

Despite the early setbacks, the Royals fought valiantly. Yashasvi Jaiswal (67) and Riyan Parag (77) played crucial knocks, reviving their side’s hopes with a 133-run partnership. However, wickets began to fall at regular intervals, and the Royals needed 13 runs from the final over with Ravichandran Ashwin on strike.

Nail-Biting Last Ball

The tension in the stadium was palpable as Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the final over. Rovman Powell, known for his big-hitting abilities, smashed a boundary off the third ball, bringing the equation down to 6 runs needed from 3 balls. The crowd roared with every delivery, and the pressure mounted on both sides.

Bhuvneshwar held his nerve, conceding four runs on the next two balls, leaving Powell needing another double from the last ball. Powell tried to swung wildly but failed to connect with the ball, and was given LBW by the umpire. Powell went upstairs to challenge the decision. However, nothing went in his favour and SRH won the match by one run.
