‘Want to be seen by Telugu people as…’: Nitish Kumar Reddy reveals fuel which fired his IPL 2024 heroics

With a blistering knock of 64 runs from 37 balls, including four fours and five sixes, Nitish maintained an impressive strike rate of 172.97.

Sunrisers Hyderabad‘s emerging all-rounder, Nitish Kumar Reddy, exhibited his batting prowess against the Punjab Kings at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur, Chandigarh, leading his team to their first away victory in IPL 2024.

SRH shared an intriguing video featuring Nitish Reddy. In the video, Nitish expressed confidence, proclaiming a transformation from being perceived solely as a bowler last season to emerging as a versatile all-rounder this season, especially among the Telugu audience. True to his words, Nitish’s dynamic performance played a pivotal role in SRH’s triumph against Punjab Kings.

Elevated to the fourth batting position, Nitish justified the faith bestowed upon him by his skipper Pat Cummins and the team management. Amidst a flurry of wickets falling at the other end, Nitish exhibited composure, guiding Sunrisers to a competitive total of 182 runs.

Taking guard in the fourth over, Nitish demonstrated remarkable composure, capitalizing on scoring opportunities with timely boundary strikes. His innings ended in a remarkable maiden IPL half-century off just 32 deliveries, highlighted by a stunning maximum off left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar, showing the wisdom of promoting him up the batting order. With a blistering knock of 64 runs from 37 balls, including four fours and five sixes, Nitish maintained an impressive strike rate of 172.97.
