The IPL 2024 match between Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad was washed out due to rain. However, the result didn’t matter for Sunrisers Hyderabad as they had already qualified for the playoffs. This result meant that the Gujarat Titans were knocked out of the tournament.

Sunrisers Hyderabad had a mixed season so far, but they managed to win crucial games at the right time to make it to the playoffs. They finished fourth in the points table with 12 points from 14 matches. The team was led by Kane Williamson, who had a brilliant season with the bat, scoring 508 runs in 13 innings at an average of 46.18. David Warner, who was brought back into the team, also played some crucial innings for the team.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s bowling was their strength throughout the tournament. The likes of Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and T Natarajan were outstanding with the ball. Rashid Khan picked up 17 wickets in 14 matches, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan picked up 11 wickets each.

On the other hand, the Gujarat Titans had a disappointing season. They won only 5 out of their 14 matches and finished sixth in the points table. The team was led by Suresh Raina, who struggled with the bat throughout the tournament. However, the team had some bright spots, with the likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Dwayne Bravo having a good season.

The bowling was the biggest weakness for the Gujarat Titans, with no bowler standing out throughout the tournament. Overall, it was a forgettable season for the team, and they will be looking to rebuild ahead of the next season.

In conclusion, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s qualification for the playoffs was a just reward for their consistent performances throughout the tournament. They will be looking to carry their momentum into the playoffs and win their second IPL title. Meanwhile, the Gujarat Titans will be disappointed with their performance but will be looking to bounce back stronger next year.
