SRH, after winning the toss, chose to bat first but faced early setbacks as Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head failed to deliver against KKR’s formidable bowling attack. Mitchell Starc’s early breakthrough set the tone for KKR’s dominance, with SRH struggling to build momentum.

Despite a brief partnership between Rahul Tripathi and Heinrich Klaasen, SRH continued to lose wickets at regular intervals, reaching a precarious position of 129 for 9 by the 16th over. However, a resilient effort from skipper Pat Cummins and tailender Vijayakanth Viyaskanth propelled SRH to a total of 159 runs.

In response, KKR’s batting duo, Sunil Narine and Rahmanullah Gurbaz, launched a spirited attack, but Gurbaz’s early dismissal didn’t deter Narine’s aggression. However, Pat Cummins managed to dismiss Narine, setting the stage for Venkatesh Iyer and Shreyas Iyer to steer KKR towards victory.

With a composed partnership, Venkatesh and Shreyas ensured KKR’s smooth chase, ultimately securing a comfortable win against SRH and a coveted spot in the IPL 2024 Finals.

The clash between KKR and SRH showcased the resilience and strategic prowess of both teams, with KKR emerging triumphant in a high-stakes encounter, setting the stage for an electrifying final showdown in the IPL 2024 season.
