The Kolkata Knight Riders will lock horns against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. After finishing on top of the points table in the league stage, KKR are the in-form team in the IPL with their batting, bowling, and fielding departments delivering the goods more often than not. On the other hand, the SunRisers Hyderabad have been playing explosive cricket right throughout the IPL 2024, especially with the bat in hand, which will hold them in good stead for the remainder of the tournament.

Pitch Report

The pitches at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad have been very good for batting right throughout the IPL with one indifferent game where the home team were bundled out for under 100. With that, the average first innings score of 168 at this venue in the history of the IPL, might not be enough to defend for either KKR or SRH during the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024.

Team Analysis

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders batting lineup is quite a settled unit with the likes of Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, and Shreyas Iyer amongst the runs, even though they didn’t get the chance to give a hit out to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the replacement of Phil Salt because the rain washed out their last two matches in the IPL 2024. On the bowling side of things, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have been exceptional right throughout the tournament, while the likes of Harshit Rana, Mitchell Starc, and Andre Russell have chipped in with key wickets as well.
