DRS, May 25: Heartbreak for RR and Sanju Samson, SRH’s ‘final’ date with KKR fixed

Welcome to our special segment DRS or the Daily Review System. In this, InsideSport will provide you with the top stories of IPL from a day before that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of your busy life.

Sunrisers Hyderabad sealed their spot in the finals of IPL 2024 with a convincing win against Rajasthan Royals. Pat Cummins and co. outdid RR in every form possible – with both bat and ball – to book a date with KKR to determine who will lift the trophy. Initially, Sanju Samson and co. looked poised to win the game. However, a stellar display of bowling from SRH, led by Shahbaz Ahmed, dismantled RR’s batting order, paving way for the Orange Army to inch one step closer to their second title.

From Shikhar Dhawan providing an injury update, to Mayank Yadav revealing Jasprit Bumrah’s golden mantra to a heartbreak for RR and Sanju Samson, let’s take a look at some of the top headlines from Friday.

Orange is the new Pink

Will Sunrisers Hyderabad finally claim a victory over Kolkata Knight Riders? They tried it in the group stage, couldn’t. They tried again in IPL Qualifiers 1, couldn’t. Will it be third time luck for the Hyderabad outfits? On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders remain firm favourites to lift the trophy. It will be Shreyas Iyer vs Pat Cummins once again, a replay of the Qualifiers 1 at Chepauk. SRH will be desperate for revenge now after being handed 2 losses by the Knights.

Right form, wrong day for Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal has yet again produced a masterclass with the bat. In the SRH vs RR clash in IPL Qualifiers 2, the southpaw hammered a 21-ball 42-run knock to give his side a grand start. While RR failed to consolidate on the good, start it is however, very good news for India. The ICC T20 World Cup is just a week away. And ahead of the mega ICC event, India’s ace opener returning to form, will surely bring a big smile on the faces of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid.

Bumrah’s golden advice for Mayank Yadav

Mayank Yadav has been a revelation for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2024. The young pacer stole the headlines with his blistering pace after consecutively clocking 150kph. However, LSG suffered a setback with the young pacer suffering from an injury. But Mayank has revealed that he had a great chat with Jasprit Bumrah and how Bumrah gave him some great advice.

Goodbye, Shikhar Dhawan?

Shikhar Dhawan, the veteran Indian opener, has sparked retirement rumors with his recent comments ahead of the upcoming IPL 2025 auction. Dhawan’s underwhelming performance and injury troubles in IPL 2024 raise questions about his future in the tournament.

IPL craze over?

The scene outside the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai ahead of SRH vs RR IPL 2024 Qualifier 2 was quite different from what it was during the IPL opener. So is the IPL 2024 fever already over? A seemingly empty Chepauk stadium for the clash which did not include their home side indicated that the craze for the tournament might have just hit a final roadblock.

IPL over but RCB vs CSK continues

After Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) lost to Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator to exit the IPL 2024, Ambati Rayudu made some remarks that infuriated the franchise and its supporters. On Friday, the former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player took a jab at RCB and Virat Kohli.
