Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) ended their decade-long wait for an IPL trophy with a dominant win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL 2024 final. KKR clinched their third title with an impressive all-round performance, securing an eight-wicket victory at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, May 26. Venkatesh Iyer's unbeaten 52 runs off 26 balls led the charge as KKR chased down a target of 114 in just 10.3 overs. Earlier, SRH was bowled out for 113 in 18.3 overs, with Andre Russell taking three crucial wickets.

Opting to bat first, SRH faced an immediate setback when opener Abhishek Sharma was bowled by Mitchell Starc in the first over, setting the tone for a challenging innings. SRH’s troubles compounded as Vaibhav Arora dismissed Travis Head, reducing them to 11/2 within the first three overs. The pressure mounted as Rahul Tripathi was caught off Starc’s bowling, leaving SRH at a precarious 21/3.

The middle order, featuring Heinrich Klaasen and captain Aiden Markram, attempted to stabilise the innings but failed to build any significant partnerships. Klaasen’s dismissal for 13 and Markram’s for 14 epitomised SRH’s batting woes. Andre Russell's introduction into the attack further worsened SRH’s plight as he claimed the wickets of Shahbaz Ahmed, Abdul Samad, and Aiden Markram, restricting SRH to a modest total of 113. SRH were bowled out in 18.3 overs, with Russell finishing with figures of 3/19.
