KKR vs SRH Preview: Teams who finished in the top two in the league stages are set to clash in the IPL 2024 final at Chennai's MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday, May 26. Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to entertain the fans one last time after memorable performances throughout the 17th edition.

Kolkata Knight Riders finished at the top of the points table without much trouble despite witnessing their last two league-stage games being washed out due to rain. Shreyas Iyer-led continued their momentum with a thumping eight-wicket win over SRH in Qualifier 1 to enter the finals for the first time in the last ten years.

Compared to KKR, Sunrisers Hyderabad were not convincing enough throughout their campaign but stole the limelight with aggressive cricket. SRH broke RCB's highest total record of 263 three times this season and set a new record of 287. Their camp will be boosted with a dominant win over the Royals in the Qualifier 2 but they face a poor record against KKR ahead of the final on Sunday.
