Celebrations started early in the Sunrisers hyderabad camp. Kavya Maran, the franchise's CEO and co-owner, got out of her seat applauding and cheering when the rajasthan Royals collapsed around dhruv Jurel on friday at Chennai's MA chidambaram Stadium during the 2024 indian Premier League (IPL) Qualifier 2 match. With 42 required from the Royals' last over, Kavya was overjoyed, running up the steps and hugging her father before celebrating with the other members in the SRH stand.

The spinners orchestrated SRH's surprise 36-run victory against rajasthan in Chennai, after Heinrich Klaasen's fifty helped the team set a 176-run goal. Shahbaz ahmed debuted as SRH's Impact Player, replacing Travis Head and leading the lower-order batting lineup with 18 runs. He then put rajasthan in batting danger on the slow chepauk track when he halted yashasvi jaiswal on 42 off 21, before removing Riyan Parag and Ravichandran Ashwin in the same over.

With the Royals down to 79 for five, part-time spinner abhishek Sharma dashed their dreams. After dismissing skipper sanju samson for 10, he returned later to bowl Rajasthan's impact replacement shimron hetmyer for four. rajasthan were finally limited to 139 for 7 in 20 overs. Kavya started the celebrations in the SRH camp before the final over began, and she was subsequently seen dancing after the triumph was confirmed.
