Let’s recap the incredible journey of this season and savor the highlights of an unforgettable IPL 2024. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Batting Collapse
Batting first, SRH faced a strong KKR bowling attack that broke down their lineup, resulting in a mere 113 runs. This marked the lowest total ever in an IPL final. SRH’s batting collapse began with the early dismissals of openers Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head. The rest of the batting order struggled to recover, with skipper Pat Cummins top-scoring with just 24 runs off 19 balls. This match was notable for being the first IPL final in which no player from the batting side reached the 30-run mark.

Kolkata Knight Riders’s Dominant Response
In response, KKR’s innings began with an early setback as Sunil Narine was dismissed. However, Rahmanullah Gurbaz held steady while Venkatesh Iyer launched a blistering attack, scoring 40 runs off just 12 balls, including 4 boundaries and 3 sixes. Their partnership propelled KKR to a record powerplay score of 72/1, the highest ever in an IPL final.

Shreyas Iyer Leads KKR to Victory
Despite losing Gurbaz to a Shahbaz Ahmed delivery, skipper Shreyas Iyer joined Venkatesh Iyer to finish the job. KKR chased down the target of 114 runs in just 10.3 overs, with 57 balls to spare. This set a new record for the highest margin of victory in an IPL playoff match, and it was SRH’s most significant defeat in terms of balls remaining.

Post-Match Honors
Sunil Narine’s outstanding all-round performance earned him the ‘Most Valuable Player’ award, making him the first player to win this prestigious accolade three times. Harshal Patel claimed the Purple Cap for his 24 wickets this season, becoming the third player to win it twice, joining the ranks of Dwayne Bravo and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Former Royal Challengers Bengaluru skipper Virat Kohli was awarded the Orange Cap for amassing 741 runs in the 2024 IPL season. Kohli made history by becoming the first Indian to win the Orange Cap twice, a feat previously achieved only by Chris Gayle and David Warner.
