In the IPL 2024, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Mumbai Indians (MI) faced off in a thrilling match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Travis Head, an Australian batter who ended India’s ODI World Cup dream in November 2023, was in explosive form, scoring 62 off 24 balls and the fastest 50 in IPL by a Hyderabad batter. Abhishek Sharma smoked a 16-ball 50 to lay the foundation of a record-breaking total in the high-scoring contest against MI.

Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma scored 56 runs for the first wicket to give Mumbai an excellent start. Kishan was crucially removed by Shahbaz Ahmed, and in the fourth over, captain Pat Cummins eliminated Rohit. Tilak Varma led MI’s comeback, hitting 64 off 34 balls, but MI lost the match by 31 runs after managing to score 246-5 in 20 overs.
