Can order tame mayhem? Shreyas Iyer’s metronomic KKR faces Pat Cummins’ explosive SRH in IPL Final

Only once has a team won the IPL final after losing all their previous encounters against the finalist that season (when Mumbai Indians defeated Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017 final).

KKR vs SRH, IPL 2024 Final: The stage is set for a thrilling climax to the Indian Premier League 2024 season as Shreyas Iyer’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) face off against Pat Cummins-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

KKR the dominant force

KKR has been the standout team this season, showcasing a potent batting line-up featuring multiple power-hitters throughout the order. Their bowling attack boasts mystery spinners who’ve bamboozled opposition batsmen.

SRH redemption story

SRH, on the other hand, has defied expectations. After being one of the worst performers in the previous three seasons, they’ve staged a remarkable comeback in IPL 2024. Their batting relies heavily on the explosive duo of Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma at the top, while their bowling attack offers a wider variety.

KKR comes into the final on a winning streak, while SRH has shown inconsistency in their recent matches.

History in Making

Statistics show that winning past matches against your final opponent doesn’t always guarantee victory. Only once has a team won the IPL final after losing all their previous encounters against the finalist that season (When Mumbai Indians defeated Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017 final).

Tonight’s match promises to be a nail-biter, with both teams hungry for victory and a chance to rewrite history.
