In a captivating clash between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL 2024, Nitish Reddy’s exceptional innings propelled SRH to a formidable total of 182/9. Despite a stellar performance from left-arm seamer Arshdeep Singh (4/29), SRH managed to reach a score that seemed improbable earlier in the innings.

Reddy’s courageous knock of 64 runs off just 37 balls was the highlight of SRH’s innings, providing crucial momentum. Abdul Samad’s quickfire 25 off 12 balls and a last-ball six from Jaydev Unadkat further bolstered SRH’s total.

The match commenced with drama as Travis Head (21 off 15 balls) survived an early scare when a clear edge went unnoticed. Kagiso Rabada’s uncertainty regarding the edge granted Head a reprieve, but he couldn’t capitalize and fell to a superb catch by PBKS skipper Shikhar Dhawan.

PBKS continued to dominate, with Arshdeep Singh claiming key wickets, including Aiden Markram for a duck and Abhishek Sharma after a promising start. Despite the setbacks, Nitish Reddy’s partnership with Samad injected vitality into SRH’s innings.

Rahul Tripathi and Heinrich Klaasen struggled to make an impact, leaving SRH in a precarious position at 100 for five. However, Reddy rose to the occasion, showcasing maturity beyond his years and steering SRH to a competitive total.

Reddy’s partnership with Samad was instrumental in SRH’s recovery, highlighting their resilience under pressure. Ultimately, SRH’s total of 182/9 posed a significant challenge for PBKS, setting the stage for an enthralling encounter.
