After SRH vs MI, Junaid Khan takes a dig at the IPL batting

After SRH vs MI, Junaid Khan takes a dig at the IPL batting

SRH vs MI: In the eighth match of the Indian Premier League 2024, Sunrisers Hyderabad faced Mumbai Indians on Wednesday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. SRH scored 277 runs in the match, which is a record for the highest total in IPL history. Former Pakistani cricketer Junaid Khan poked fun at the batters’ dominance in the IPL and the short pitches in India that work to their advantage as the run-fest delighted spectators worldwide.

The game saw a record 38 sixes, the most in any T20 match in the competition’s history. Mumbai Indians jumped on the bandwagon as well, hitting a torrent of maximums, but they were unable to get over the edge. It’s claimed that Junaid, a fast bowler by trade, is worried about the bowlers’ lack of involvement when the track gives the hitters too much freedom. His posts on social media were a clear reflection of his feelings.

Junaid’s post on SRH vs MI:

Junaid questioned in one of his posts on ‘X’, “Small boundaries, fast outfield, and level pitches. We refer to this as the IPL. a 278 goal. The wicket deserves all the credit. In just 40 overs, 523 runs were scored with just 8 wickets lost. Is this stick cricket or is this real cricket?.”

Travis Head’s barrage of boundaries with the bat ignited the SRH offensive. In MI’s opening over, he scored 22 runs off Kwena Mapahaka’s debut. Consequently, SRH scored 81 runs during the powerplay. After that, Abhishek Sharma came on board and, with three sixes in a single over, he took seasoned player Piyush Chawla to task. Sharma was removed for 63 off 23, while Head scored 62 off 24.

MI got out to a strong start, but they were unable to match the first-inning performance of the SRH hitters. Compared to the SRH hitters, Naman Dhir and Tilak Verma were a little more tentative in their approach, which is why they were unable to score in the middle overs. To exacerbate their losses, Hardik Pandya, their recently anointed captain, batted at a strike rate of 120 when circumstances called for him to do otherwise. SRH won by a margin of 31 runs.
