With the ball, SRH’s Pat Cummins and Jaydev Unadkat shone, taking two wickets apiece to help them win by a comfortable 31 runs.

A record-breaking 38 sixes were hit throughout the match, which created a new T20 world record for the most sixes in a single game.The high-scoring match left spectators amazed at both sides’ batting prowess.

With their first win of the season, SRH gained two points and moved up to third place in the IPL 2024 points standings after their win. Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the reigning champions, are now atop the standings after winning two of their last two games to total four points.
