In a thrilling clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the second match of IPL 2024, KKR emerged victorious by a narrow margin of four runs.

The game reached its climax in the last over when Harshit Rana delivered a crucial blow to SRH’s hopes by dismissing Heinrich Klaasen. Rana’s slower ball deceived Klaasen, who attempted a powerful shot but only managed to edge the ball behind.

Suyash Sharma showcased remarkable athleticism at short third man, sprinting back to take an exceptional catch. This brilliant running catch by Sharma turned the tide in KKR’s favor, securing a last-minute win.

On the match front, despite a solid batting finish, Kolkata Knight Riders struggled to find their rhythm with the ball. While Mitchell Starc failed to make an impact upfront, Harshit Rana’s mature bowling in the powerplay helped break Hyderabad’s opening stand and later dismissed another opener.

In the middle overs, the spin trio of Sunil Narine, Varun Chakaravarthy, and Impact Player Suyash Sharma created difficulties for the opposition, maintaining pressure on the run rate. As the match tightened, Rana’s strategic dismissals of Shahbaz Ahmed and Heinrich Klaasen turned the game in Kolkata’s favor, securing a hard-fought victory despite tense moments.

Earlier, at the halfway point, Hyderabad remained competitive, relying on Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram to maintain the required run rate. However, both struggled against Kolkata’s spinners, leaving Klaasen with a daunting task. With 63 runs needed from four overs, Klaasen took charge, finding support from Shahbaz Ahmed. Yet, their dismissals in the final over dashed Hyderabad’s hopes.
