Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are set to face Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, May 24 | Reddy Anna.
IPL 2024: Qualifier 2, SRH vs RR


Sunrisers Hyderabad squandered their first opportunity to reach the finals by losing comprehensively to Kolkata Knight Riders in Qualifier 1. The former two-time champions chased down a 160-run target with eight wickets and 38 balls to spare. SRH will look to capitalize on their second chance on Friday and secure a spot in the final.

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals finally broke their winless streak this month by defeating the in-form Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Eliminator. Sanju Samson's men chased down a 173-run target with four wickets and an over to spare, gaining momentum at a crucial stage of the tournament.

These two sides met once during the league stage, with Sunrisers pulling off a thrilling one-run win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, defending a target of 202. Rajasthan will be eager to avenge that loss in this crucial encounter.

Chepauk Stadium Pitch Report:

The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has produced contrasting pitches this season. Some games have featured the traditionally slow and low Chepauk surfaces, while others have been high-scoring encounters. A notable high-scoring match was between Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants on April 23, where both teams scored over 200 runs. Sunrisers will prefer a flatter pitch for this match.

SRH vs RR Probable Best Players of the Match:

In 13 matches, he has amassed 533 runs at an average of 44.42 and a strike rate of 199.63. If Head fires at the top alongside Abhishek Sharma, the Rajasthan bowlers will have a tough time.

  • Probable Best Bowler: T Natarajan: The left-arm seamer has been bowling with supreme confidence this season. He has picked up 18 wickets in 12 matches at an average of 23.50 and a strike rate of 15.44. Natarajan's ability to take wickets in the powerplay and at the death will be crucial for Sunrisers in this knockout fixture.
