What happened in the KKR vs SRH IPL 2024 final?

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins won the toss and chose to bat first against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.

SRH were bundled out for 113 in 18.3 overs. They got off to a poor start as the top three, including Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, failed to deliver. The Sunrisers kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Pat Cummins and Aiden Markram chipped in with 24 (19) and 20 (23), respectively, to take the team past 100. Heinrich Klaasen and Nitish Reddy were the other batters to reach double digits.

Andre Russell emerged as the leading wicket-taker, picking up three wickets, while Mitchell Starc and Harshit Rana bagged two apiece. Vaibhav Arora, Sunil Narine, and Varun Chakaravarthy also took one each.

In response, the Knight Riders achieved the target with 57 balls to spare. Sunil Narine smashed a six but departed off the next ball. Rahmanullah Gurbaz looked good for his 39 off 32 before getting out via LBW in an unfortunate manner as the DRS review feature wasn't available. Venkatesh then took his team past the finish line with his half-century.
