Rajasthan Royals (RR) pacer Avesh Khan has been breathing fire in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The Qualifier 2 of the tournament between the teams is underway at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. 

Avesh Khan is turning the things for his team against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The fast bowler changed the course of the game within one over and put his team at the top in the high-pressure game, which is underway at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. 

In the 14th over of the game, Avesh Khan produced two wickets for his team and made sure that he put the Sunrisers Hyderabad under pressure. First, he removed Nitish Reddy and went on to remove Abdul Samad with the magical ball, to which the batter looked clueless and walked back disappointed. 

Avesh Khan bowled a good-length delivery that was tailing in a touch. Abdul Samad's feet were stuck to the crease as he tried to be tentative. This left a gap between the pad and the ball and the ball went on to snap past the inside edge and hit the top of the off-stump to send the batter packing. This left Sunrisers Hyderabad CEO Kavya Maran stunned. 

Here's the video:

Abdul Samad couldn't make an impact with the bat as he bagged a golden duck in the ongoing crucial game. Earlier on the 5th ball, he removed Nitish Reddy, who scored just 5 runs off the 10 balls. With his two wickets in the one over, Sunrisers Hyderabad was left tottering at 120/6. 

Avesh Khan made a similar kind of impact for his team in the last game against Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the Narendra Modi International Stadium in Ahmedabad. He removed Rajat Patidar and Dinesh Karthik in the same over to put his team at the top and then win the game. 

In the ongoing game, Heinrich Klaasen is keeping his team in the hunt. The keeper-batter slammed a fighting half-century and kept his team in the hunt.  He scored 50 runs off 34 and powered Sunrisers Hyderabad to over 160 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai

I don't think the way we have played so far is going to change tonight at all - Heinrich Klaasen 

Ahead of the game against Rajasthan Royals, Heinrich Klaasen opened up about and lauded the crowd support at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. He talked about his form and claimed that he was a bit disappointed with himself before adding that they would be playing in the same aggressive manner. He added:  

"It's a very humbling feeling, the crowd has been fantastic this season. Hopefully, it keeps on growing. If we win here tonight, they'll grow up more. (Personal form) Little bit disappointed with how the middle phase of the tournament went. But for the last two games, I am quite pleased, small errors here and there, that are quite easy to fix. Hopefully tonight I can rectify those small errors and make a big impact on the game. 

"I don't think the way we have played so far is going to change tonight at all. It's a semi-final, a lot of big individuals need to step up and keep playing our type of brand. If we play our brand of cricket, we will put teams under pressure. It's a different wicket, boundary size does play a role here," he concluded.
