Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) emerged triumphant in the IPL 2024 final, defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by a convincing 8 wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday.

KKR’s thumping win over SRH in IPL 2024 final

KKR’s bowlers set the tone for a one-sided victory, restricting SRH to a meagre total of 113 runs. Pat Cummins‘ decision to bat first after winning the toss backfired.

Mitchell Starc got the Knight Riders off to a flier by dismissing SRH opener Abhishek Sharma in the very first over. From there on, KKR never relinquished control, maintaining a stranglehold on the SRH batters throughout the innings. The disciplined bowling attack, led by Andre Russell‘s impressive spell of 3 for 19 in just 2.3 overs, bundled out SRH in 18.3 overs.

Chasing a paltry target of 114, KKR reached the finish line in just 10.3 overs, thanks to Venkatesh Iyer’s 52 not out off 26.

This victory marked KKR’s third IPL title, solidifying their place as one of the most successful teams in the tournament’s history. Mitchell Starc was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match for his match-winning opening spell.

It’s been a roller coaster ride for me for the past 7 years with @KKRiders I’ve loved every single bit of it. In those seven years I never lost as a player. I’v learned and I’ve grown in ways I’ve never imagined. pic.twitter.com/4xeGU6PYxf
