New Delhi. Pat Cummins' biggest weapon proved useless in the IPL final. The same weapon due to which Cummins defeated India and won the World Cup 2023 title. The same batsman who scored the fastest century of IPL 2024 was not even allowed to open his account by KKR in the final. We are talking about Sunrisers Hyderabad opener Travis Head. Who became a victim of golden duck in the IPL final.

The final of IPL 2024 was played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday. In this match, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first. He would have expected a stormy start from openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, which the pair gave most of the match. But both the batsmen disappointed in the final.

KKR's most expensive bowler Mitchell Starc dismissed Abhishek Sharma (2) in the first over. But Vaibhav Arora gave an even bigger blow to SRH in the second over. This Indian bowler sent Travis Head to the pavilion in his very first over. Travis Head was out after playing just one ball. This was the third time in the last 4 matches when Travis Head could not open his account.

As soon as Travis Head got out, KKR fans went crazy. And why not? This is the same Travis Head who scored 137 runs against India in the World Cup final on November 19 last year. Due to this century of Head, Australia defeated India and won the World Cup.

Travis Head also had a great start in IPL 2024. But as the title match came closer, his form started deteriorating. The fastest century in IPL is also in the name of Travis Head. He scored a century in just 39 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
