POTM Shahbaz Ahmed said:

"(You knew you'll be an impact player?) Captain and coach said that we'll use you according to the situation. My role is to play lower-order and since we had a collapse, I got a chance. (Pitch for today's bowling for him) When I was batting, I felt this wicket had something when Sandeep and Avesh were bowling. Felt there'll be purchase later. (His SRH experience, being traded, not playing every game) I am feeling proud to be MOTM in such a big match. The team environment has been relaxed. (Celebration tonight?) We'll save the celebrations for after the final. For now, it's about relaxation," Shahbaz said.

Winning skipper Pat Cummins said:

"(on SRH's turnaround from 2023) You've seen that in the way we played. The finals was the goal and we've made it. (Finding another way to win tonight) We knew our strength was batting but we wouldn't underestimate the experience in the side like Nattu, Unadkat and Bhuvi. (Shahbaz as the Impact Sub choice) That was Vettori's choice, he likes his left-arm spinners. (Using Sharma's four overs) I felt there was a bit of a grip. (Total felt enough at the break?) Finals are always funny. These turn into tough chases. Needed early wickets and we got that. (Seeing how dew works in India) I won't ever pretend to work out how it works. (Final) For the whole franchise, there are 60-70 of us who are involved, it is really gratifying. Hopefully one more," Cummins said.

Losing skipper Pat Cummins said:

"It was a big game. I am really proud of the way we bowled in the first innings. We were found short of options in the middle overs against their spin, that's where we lost the game. It's very hard to guess actually when we are expecting some dew or when we are not. The wicket started behaving differently in the second innings, the ball started turning a bit, they used that advantage really well. They bowled their spin in the middle overs against our right-handed batsmen, that's where they were one-up against us. Against their left-arm spin, when the ball was stopping, we could have tried a bit more reverse-sweep or maybe use of the crease a bit more. They also bowled really well. We have had some brilliant games not only this season but from the last three years, it has been a great project for our franchise. We have found some really great talent for the country. Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel and a lot of them are looking really exciting not only for RR but definitely for the Indian cricket team. We have had some great seasons from the last three years. (On Sandeep Sharma) I am really happy for him. By not being picked in the auction and coming back as a replacement, the way he bowled, he has definitely delivered. If we look at the numbers, Sandeep Sharma in the last two years, he will be the next guy after Bumrah. He has done a great job. (Final) The condition suits both of them, so let's see how they come back again in the powerplay. SRH batsmen are very interesting, they can definitely take the game away. KKR also will be confident, they look very exciting. It'll be a great game, that's what IPL has been giving us for the last 16 years," Samson said.

After an exhilarating 58-day league stage filled with thrilling T20 cricket, the stage is now set for the second half of the playoffs to unfold.

The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai will host a riveting Qualifier 2 on May 24, where the Rajasthan Royals (RR) will battle the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to determine who advances to the IPL 2024 Final to take on the Kolkata Knight Riders.

RR are riding high after a significant reprieve, having secured a four-wicket victory over the Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Eliminator at the Narendra Modi Stadium, significantly putting an end to their four-match losing streak. 

On the other hand, SRH, who finished one position above RR on the points table courtesy of net run rate, endured a battering defeat at the hands of KKR during Qualifier 1, also played in Ahmedabad

SRH's record of 10 wins out of 19 matches against RR gives them a slight upper hand, but RR's recent win might provide a psychological boost. Nonetheless, SRH's additional day for travel, rest, and practice might prove beneficial. All in all, the upcoming match is primed to be yet another exhilarating thriller.
