KKR Journey to Winning IPL 2024 Final

Under the guidance of head coach Chandrakant Pandit, mentorship of Gautam Gambhir, and the leadership of captain Shreyas Iyer, KKR’s journey to the IPL 2024 final has been remarkable. Dominating the league stage, they topped the table with an impressive 20 points and a significant Net Run Rate (NRR) of +1.428.

In Qualifier 1 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, they proved their worth against Hyderabad. Led by an exceptional performance from Mitchell Starc, KKR restricted the Pat Cummins-led side to a modest 159 in 19.3 overs. The target was chased, as KKR secured victory with eight wickets in hand and 38 balls to spare. Key players such as Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, and Varun Chakravarthy have been in outstanding form, bolstered by the resurgence of Starc and a brilliant strategy by Shreyas Iyer, making KKR the favourites heading into the final.

In the final, KKR’s bowlers dismantled the SRH lineup, restricting them to a record low score of 113. Venkatesh Iyer’s unbeaten 52 off 26 balls proved instrumental in securing KKR’s third IPL title. SRH’s aggressive batting approach backfired on the grandest stage. Mitchell Starc claimed two of the three wickets that SRH lost in the powerplay. SRH suffered their fourth setback in the 10th over, followed by Andre Russell’s crucial dismissal of Aiden Markram in the 11th.
