This Sunday will be more fun as the IPL 2024 final is here. Two-time champion KKR and one-time champion SRH are going to play the final to be a champion again. We are here with a detailed analysis of this match. We will talk about every aspect of this match. So let's start this with the venue and time of the match. 

Venue and time 

This historical finale is going to be played in the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai. The pitch of the stadium is known for the bowler. Even in the last match against RR VS SRH, we saw that the bowlers were more dominant. This match is going to start at 7.30 PM. The fans of KKR and SRH will not miss the match. This is going to be an interesting battle between them. The only target of both teams is to win this match and conquer the IPL trophy. It is interesting to watch this match where both teams try their best to win the trophy. 

The journey so far: KKR and SRH

Both SRH as well as KKR played well in this IPL season. This IPL gave a new name and fame to SRH, before this season SRH was known as a normal team. But this season SRH performed wonderfully. They have won with every team and show why they are the best choice for this season. Even the team is looking for a perfect choice for the IPL trophy this year. Sunrisers Hyderabad is a favorite of many of us. 

KKR's journey this season is unforgettable. The team is looking good for the match. KKR performed consistently throughout the season. This all helps the team to be in the first position of the IPL points table. Even in the first qualifier against the same SRH team, they performed well and directly entered the finale. This time against SRH, they will try to defeat them and win this IPL trophy. If this happens, This will be the third trophy for KKR. So KKR tries to win this match. 

Sunrisers and Kolkata's record in the finale

Sunrisers Hyderabad has qualified for the final two times to date. They qualified for the final in 2016 and 2018. In the 2016 season, they won the trophy against RCB in the final. In 2018 they missed the final against CSK. Now they are again in the final and this time SRH will try to win their second IPL trophy. 

For KKR this is going to be the third time to win the IPL trophy. They have won the IPL trophy in 2012 and 2014. They have won the 2012 IPL trophy against CSK in this same ground. In 2014 they won the game against Kings XI Punjab. They are also in the final in 2021. But they lost that year's finale against CSK. This year they have another chance to win their third trophy in the IPL. KKR will look forward to winning this game and winning the trophy again.

Who can be the best performer in this match? 

As we are witnessing how big matches like qualifiers and eliminators are being played in this session. Their very low-scoring matches are happening, just because the teams are under pressure. So it's very hard to perform well in high-pressure matches. Still, we have some names from both sides who can outperform in this match. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

Sunrisers are one of the top-performing teams of this season. They are continuously doing well in every match. They won the last match against Rajasthan Royals and successfully placed their team in the final. Sunrisers have some star batsmen who are doing well in every match. They have Heinrich Klaasen, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, and Travis Head who is leading the team. In the last match except Abhishek, all scored a good number of runs. From the bowling side sunrises have a good bowling attack. The bowling department is led by T Natrajan, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Pat Cummins. Even Abhishek Sharma is a good bowler. In the last match, he took two wickets. So, the Sunrisers have a strong bowling line up too. 

Kolkata knight riders 

The Kolkata Knight Riders' batting and the bowling lineup are on fire. They are performing well in every match. Kolkata has some star players like Sunil Narine, Shreyas Iyer, and Venkatesh Iyer. However, KKR will miss their one star player Phil Salt who has departed to their country for another match. The bowling lineup is led by Varun Chakravarthy, Andre Russell, Mitchell Starc, and the all-rounder Sunil Narine. These all are the key elements for the team.

Who can win this match? 

Well, the answer to this question is not so easy. Both teams are equally capable. However, if you look at the past performance and record of both the teams you will realise that KKR is looking stronger than Sunrisers. Even KKR has defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the qualifier so there is a high probability that they will be in this match and they will lift the trophy again. Although for Sunrisers there will be good competition from KKR. Still, SRH can lift the trophy if they play well.
