IPL 2024: WATCH - Mitchell Starc cleans up Abhishek Sharma with a jaffa after SRH opt to bat first in IPL final vs KKR

SRH suffered a big blow in the very first over of the match.

Mitchell Starc knocked over Abhishek Sharma with a beauty | XKolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are locking horns with each other in the title clash of the IPL 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Sunday (May 26).

In the all-important final, SRH suffered a big blow in the very first over as left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc knocked over in-form opener Abhishek Sharma (2 off 5 balls) with a jaffa.

On the fifth delivery of the match, Starc bowled an absolute peach that drew Abhishek forward. The ball nipped away quite a bit and opened up the left-hander before clipping the top of his off-stump.

Here’s the video:

It remains to be seen which team lifts the IPL 2024 trophy but KKR hold a significant edge over SRH this season. The Shreyas Iyer-led side emerge victorious in both of their group stage matches against SRH and then registered another victory over them in Qualifier 1.

While Pat Cummins's side has caught everyone’s attention for their explosive batting display in the ongoing IPL, the likes of Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klaasen have been majorly ineffective against the KKR bowling unit.
