IPL 2024 Final

The IPL 2024 Final between the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is just a few minutes away with the action set to begin at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The SRH Skipper Pat Cummins won the important toss and without any hesitation decided to bat first.

IPL 2024 Final: KKR and SRH’s Team Composition

KKR are in brutal form this season, having beaten the SRH already twice this season including the comprehensive win in the Qualifier 1 in Ahmedabad. SRH will look to turn the tables this time in the all-important clash.

Once again it will be an interesting battle between Mitch Starc and Travis Head at the top. Starc got the better of SRH’s dashing opener quite a few times, including four nought dismissals out of 5 innings. This battle will decide the course of the game. Abhishek Sharma also has a huge role to play at the top.

For KKR, the spin duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy will be crucial to tighten things in the middle. The batsmen are in great form, starting at the top by Narine himself. It would be a great contest, rightly made up for the final clash.
