Mohit Sharma’s exceptional bowling limited Sunrisers Hyderabad to 162-8, paving the way for David Miller to lead Gujarat Titans to a decisive seven-wicket victory on their home turf in the IPL 2024 match.

Hyderabad faced early pressure as Gujarat’s aggressive batting put them on the back foot. Shabaz Ahmed’s initial breakthrough and Mayank Markande’s pivotal wicket of the opposition captain added to their woes. Although Hyderabad’s bowlers tightened the grip in the middle overs, Markande’s costly over tilted the momentum in Gujarat’s favor.

Pat Cummins’ breakthrough by dismissing Sai Sudharsan briefly halted Gujarat’s progress, but by then, the damage was done. The home team smoothly sailed to a 7-wicket victory, capitalizing on their strong start and effective partnerships.

Earlier, Gujarat’s opening duo, Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill, laid a solid foundation, troubling Hyderabad’s bowlers initially. Saha fell early, but Gill partnered with Sai Sudharsan to stabilize the innings. Despite a brief setback with Gill’s dismissal after the break, Sudharsan and David Miller forged a crucial partnership, inching closer to the target. While Sudharsan accelerated, falling just short of his fifty, Miller’s unbeaten innings steered Gujarat to victory.
