The 66th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 is between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Gujarat Titans (GT). For SRH, this is an important game as they are just one step away from qualifying in the playoffs, while GT has already been eliminated from the tournament. SRH has to give their best to stay in the tournament since they will get only one match to play after this.

If they lose both games then their dream of qualifying will be shattered. On the other hand, even if GT is out of the tournament, if they manage to beat any team, their chances will drop drastically. Hence all the teams should know the runners-up in the upcoming matches. 

Let's discuss the key player battles in the SRH vs GT match:

1. Shubman Gill vs Bhuvaneshwar Kumar:

Shubman Gill

The captain of the GT team, Shubman Gill is an important player and the team's backbone. He has played some extraordinary innings which helped the team win matches. On the other hand, SRH's Bhuvneshwar Kumar is undoubtedly the 'Swing King' of India. In the recent matches, he bowled extremely well, especially in the death overs. However, his powerplay overs are equally important where Gill will come to bat. If the skipper manages to play well against Bhuvneshwar, GT can get a good score. 

2. Heinrich Klaasen vs Rashid Khan:

Henrich Klaasen

Henrich Klaasen is an outstanding player when it comes to spin attack. He has the ability and the skills to hit the bowlers straight out of the park. Hence, playing against GT's Rashid Khan will be easy for Klaasen. Moreover, the match in Hyderabad is an added advantage for the SRH batters. Hence, Rashid will have to bowl well to dismiss the batter in this match. 

3. Abhishek Sharma vs Mohit Sharma:

The battle between Abhishek Sharma and Mohit Sharma will be lovely to watch since both players are in good form. While Abhishek has a habit of hitting every ball, Mohit is an expert in delivering slow balls which mostly work as wicket balls. If the bowler comes up to bowl in the powerplays, there's a high chance of him dismissing the batter with his slow balls.
