Irfan Pathan praises Abhishek Sharma’s impactful innings of 37 runs in IPL 2024

In a thrilling match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Abhishek Sharma’s explosive innings of 37 runs off 12 balls stole the show, leading SRH to a six-wicket victory. Former cricketer Irfan Pathan praised Abhishek’s performance, highlighting its crucial role in SRH’s triumph.

Abhishek Sharma’s aggressive batting in the powerplay set the tone for SRH’s chase, with his fearless stroke play and impeccable timing earning him the Player of the Match award. Pathan emphasized the impact of Abhishek’s innings, particularly during a phase where SRH faced mounting pressure and panic.

Despite a brief resurgence from CSK, SRH’s solid start and Abhishek’s heroics ensured their victory with 11 balls to spare. Pathan noted SRH’s momentary lapse in composure during the middle overs but credited Abhishek for guiding the team through and securing the win in front of their home crowd.

As SRH celebrated their second win of the season, CSK faced their second consecutive defeat, leading to introspection within their camp. Looking ahead, CSK will aim to bounce back against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their next encounter at Chepauk on April 8.
