IPL 2024: Starc’s Wicket Of Abhishek Sharma Ended The Match For SRH, Says Matthew Hayden

Kolkata Knight Riders: Former Australia cricketer Matthew Hayden opined that Mitchell Starc’s wicket of Abhishek Sharma ended the match for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the final against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday.

The final saw KKR dominate from the outset, starting with Mitchell Starc's stunning dismissal of Abhishek Sharma with a ball that pitched on middle and leg and zipped past the outside edge to hit off stump. This wicket initiated a collapse; Vaibhav Arora removed Travis Head for a first-ball duck with an excellent away-swinger, and Starc struck again to dismiss Rahul Tripathi, leaving SRH at 21 for 3 inside five overs.

"The moment that ball bowled to Abhishek Sharma came out of Mitchell Starc's hands, it was game over. It was destined to be the best ball of the IPL, an absolute peach at a time when it was so important. We all talked about how crucial the power play would be for winning this IPL final and this tournament. And after that ball from Mitchell Starc, it just meant that KKR were on a roll," said Hayden to Star Sports Cricket live
