The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) took on the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the summit clash of the 17th edition of the  Indian Premier League (IPL)  at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, May 26. The two sides, who locked horns in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024, saw the Kolkata-based side come out on top and seal a direct entry to the final. But for the SRH, it was a task as they beat Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Qualifier 2 to confirm the second berth in the title clash.

But on Sunday, as the two sides took the field, it was the Shreyas Iyer-led side who prevailed over the SunRisers Hyderabad. Firstly, after being invited to field first, the KKR bowlers did their part and bundled out the SRH to 113. They thereafter chased the total in just 10.3 overs to claim their third IPL title.
