Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Final IPL 2024

The final of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Kolkata Knight Riders take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai on Sunday. These sides finished in the top two places of the group stage and also met in the Qualifier 1 last Tuesday which KKR won easily. Read on as we preview this match. The final begins at 19:30 local time.

KKR have not lost a game since Match 42 of this tournament and confidence is very high around the group. Although they have seen their opening partnership interrupted by Phil Salt returning to the UK, they have an excellent replacement and will fancy their chances of winning this final.

Sunrisers Hyderabad were well beaten in the Qualifier 1 on Tuesday but then produced an excellent performance here in Chepauk on Friday to qualify for the final. They play a fearless brand of cricket and they will be very hard to beat on Sunday.

KKR vs SRH Match Toss Prediction

After we saw Sunrisers Hyderabad successfully defend a total in the Qualifier 2 at this venue on Friday, we expect that both captains will choose to bat first if they win the toss ahead of this final at the MA Chidambaram.

KKR vs SRH Pitch Report

The pitch at the MA Chidambaram is never the quickest in the IPL and that has been the case once again this season. As a result, scores of 250+ are unrealistic on a surface which is likely to assist the spinners. Slower balls will grip and batters will need to take advantage of the hard ball and the fielding restrictions during the powerplay.

Chennai Weather Report

It will be a cloudy evening in Chepauk and there is a slight chance of rain according to the forecast. However, it is only a slight chance and we can expect a temperature of 32 degrees throughout with high humidity.

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Although there are no injuries in the KKR squad, we could still see some changes ahead of this final as the conditions in Chepauk are different to those seen in the Qualifier 1 in Ahmedabad. Spinners are likely to come into the conversation for the XI as well as in the impact role.

KKR Key Players

  • Sunil Narine- the all-rounder looks to be very much in the running for the Player of the Tournament Award. He will play unorthodox shots in the final but will look to attack from the start.
  • Shreyas Iyer- the skipper has had an easy job leading some of these players this season and he produced a brilliant innings to win in the Qualifier 1 with 58 not out from 24 balls.
  • Mitchell Starc- the experienced left-arm quick comes into the final in fine form after taking the wickets of Travis Head, Nitish Kumar Reddy and Shahbaz Ahmed on Tuesday.
  • Varun Chakravarhty- the spinner added another two wickets to his tally for the season in the Qualifier 1 and he’ll be looking forward to bowling at the same players in this game.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Anukul Roy, Manish Pandey, KS Bharat, Sherfane Rutherford, Nitish Rana

Such was their dominance over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the playoffs that KKR did not use an Impact Player in that game. However, in this final, we expect Anukul Roy’s spin to be used in the fielding innings.

KKR Team Form

KKR finished top of the group stage and had a big win in the play-offs. They were last beaten back in Match 42.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Vaibhav Arora, Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, Harshit Rana

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

There were no injury worries for Sunrisers Hyderabad either before or after their Qualifier 2 on Friday and we expect to see the same players used across the match as against Rajasthan Royals. Playing here in Chepauk on Friday could also be an advantage for Pat Cummins’ side.

SRH Key Players

  • Heinrich Klaasen- without the South African’s runs on Friday, Sunrisers could easily have failed to post a sufficient target. He is averaging 42.09 in this IPL.
  • Abhishek Sharma- the all-rounder was dismissed inside the first over in the Qualifier 2 but he had already hit 12 runs! He will also be a threat with the ball as seen on Friday when he took 2/24.
  • T Natarajan- the left-arm fast medium bowler is a very experienced and clever campaigner. He has an excellent array of slower balls and conceded just 13 runs from his three overs against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Shahbaz Ahmed- the impact player contributed with bat and ball in the win over Rajasthan and his left-arm spin could be match-winning again in the final.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Umran Malik, Sanvir Singh, Jaydev Unadkat, Anmolpreet Singh, Glenn Phillips, Travis Hea

Australian opener Travis Head has been used mainly as just a batting option in IPL 2024 and we expect him to play the same role in this match with Bhuvneshwar Kumar to drop out after the fielding innings.

SRH Team Form

Surisers Hyderabad produced a strong bowling performance on Friday to qualify for the final and have lost just two of their last eight matches.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Nitish Kumar Reddy, Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), T.Natarajan, Jaydev Unadkat, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

KKR vs SRH Betting Odds

Who will win Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad T20 Match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad showed that they have the players to win convincingly on this pitch on Friday and that will give them an advantage. However, KKR have been the top side all tournament and have already beaten Sunrisers twice so we have them as the top team.

🏆 KKR vs SRH Prediction

The 2024 IPL is likely to be remembered for some of the very high-scoring powerplay scores as well as the record breaking totals from Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier in the tournament. However, here in Chennai, it is likely to be a lower-scoring game and it could well be a classic between these two strong sides. Sunrisers have the advantage of playing at this venue and winning on Friday whereas KKR thrashed Sunrisers on Tuesday for their second win over them this season. Our prediction is for a close contest which will go all the way to the end but we are backing KKR to triumph once again.
