A video of a SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) supporter shushing the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fans has gone viral on social media. The incident happened on Friday during the match between the two sides at the Uppal Stadium in Hyderabad. In the video, the SRH fan was seen holding a banner that showed a man shushing the CSK lion. The SRH fan decided to took a jibe at the CSK fans while his team was closing in on a comprehensive win over the defending champions.

SRH registered their second win of the tournament, beating CSK to climb into fifth spot in the IPL points table.

Despite the loss, CSK remained third in the points table with two wins and two defeats so far in IPL 2024.

Recapping the match, Aiden Markram hit four fours and a six in his 50-run knock to help SRH overhaul CSK’s below-par total of 165-5 with 11 balls to spare.

“When we bowled, the first 10 overs or so, it (the ball) was coming on alright but it got tougher,” said Markram.

“So we took it on in the first 10 overs and were in a good position later.”

CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad said his batsmen failed to capitalise in the last five overs and put up a bigger total.

“It was a slow pitch. At the back end they bowled well,” he said.

“We were in a good situation halfway but they bowled well at the back.”

SRH made a flying start with opener Abhishek Sharma hammering 27 runs including three sixes and two fours in the second over by Mukesh Choudhary.

But his heroics were cut short by Deepak Chahar who had Sharma caught by Ravindra Jadeja for 37.

Markram then steadied the innings with his well-composed knock off 36 balls before being trapped leg before by England’s Moeen Ali.

Ali then struck again in his next over to remove Shahbaz Ahmed (18), stunning the home crowd into silence.

Heinrich Klassen and Nitish Kumar Reddy however ensured there were no further setbacks and carried the team  past the target.
