New Delhi: The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won their fifth game of the TATA IPL 2024 by defeating the Delhi Capitals (DC) by 67 runs. Batting first, Hyderabad scored their fourth 200+ innings this edition by scoring 266 runs, while Delhi were bowled out for 199 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium,  here on Saturday.

JioCinema TATA IPL experts Zaheer Khan and RP Singh praised Jake Fraser-McGurk (65 runs) and T Natarajan (4/19), while Travis Head (89 runs) spoke exclusively on Match Centre Live.

Openers Head and Abhishek Sharma added 131 runs in just 38 balls to guide their team for big total. 

Travis Head spoke exclusively to JioCinema on his experience in the TATA IPL and the SRH batting line-up – “It is very enjoyable. It is nice to be here and play well, and it is hard not to smile and enjoy yourself with the batting order that we have got, and the order is working well through the first seven, so it is very enjoyable.”

Head also spoke on SRH’s momentum and positive energy around the team – “We will take it easy for a minute. I think it was Murali’s (Muttiah Muralitharan) birthday a couple of days ago, so we have a party for him tomorrow night, so that will be enjoyable. I think it’s a nice group, we are not getting too far ahead of ourselves. Obviously, we are excited. We have got four wins on the bounce now, we are playing well, and the energy is always better when you are winning. The environment is really good. That’s what Dan (Daniel Vettori) and Pat Cummins are going to bring. If there is a loss here or there, a couple of poor performances, that’s okay. We are showing how good we can be. As long as we can keep instilling that confidence around how well we are playing, I guess the ceiling is as high as it wants to be.”

RP Singh, JioCinema TATA IPL expert, on T Natarajan – “Delhi was trying to chase a big score, and having a bowler who can take four wickets and give up just 19 runs, what can be better than that? Natarajan showed his skills tonight. His weapon is the slower ball, which he uses really well, alongside his yorker. Sometimes you know the batter is going to chase after you for big shots. bowling a yorker correctly at that time is also a skill. Everyone feels pressure, but how do you overcome that? Natarajan showed us tonight.”

Zaheer Khan, JioCinema TATA IPL expert, on Jake Fraser-McGurk – “Today, the line was way outside the off-stump. He has shown that he can open up that area as well and put bowlers under pressure, especially when he is able to generate power on his shots on the back foot to get the ball over the ropes. I mean, everyone’s noticing his talent and keeping an eye on him, and how he is going to evolve with experience.”
