IPL 2024: KKR wins the title after 10 years

Kolkata Knight Risers won the cup by 8 wickets in just 10.3 overs as it was the one-sided IPL final like never before! KKR was surely a Knightmare for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

SRH set the score of just 113 runs, the lowest total in an IPL final because of early wickets of both the openers and were 3 wickets down in the powerplay. The highest score of the riser was just 24 (19) by the skipper Pat Cummins. The best bowling was done by Narine 4-0-16-1, Russell took 3 wickets (2.3-0-19-3). Starc and Harshit Rana got 2-2 wickets each.

Going towards the run chase, KKR’s opener Gurbaz scored 39 (32) with 4*5 and 6*2 and Venkatesh Iyer scored half century in just 24 balls with the help of 4*4 and 6*3. KKR finished the game in just 10.3 overs.

Shreyas Iyer became the second captain of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to win the IPL title, following Gautam Gambhir, who won in 2012 and 2014. Gambhir was proudly watching from the dugout as a mentor. Iyer is also only the fifth Indian captain to lead a team to victory in an IPL final, joining the ranks of MS Dhoni, Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, and Hardik Pandya.

With this win, KKR has reaffirmed their status as one of the most successful teams in IPL history. They now have three titles, behind only Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians, who each have five titles.

Meanwhile, Pat Cummins experienced his first loss in a major tournament final in over a year, having previously led Australia to victories in the World Test Championship and the World Cup final.
