KKR vs SRH Qualifier 1 pitch report: After the intense competition in the league stage of the Indian Premier League 2024, the focus now shifts to the actual business end of the tournament. Nearly after two months of tug-of-war, the IPL playoffs are set to unfold as the fans wait in anticipation for the 2024 winner.

Kolkata Knight Riders will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 1 of the tournament at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 21 with the final spot up for grabs. KKR are the table-toppers, while SRH finished second in the standings after their win over Punjab Kings coupled with Rajasthan Royals' wash-out fixture against KKR on Sunday. 

Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad pitch report

The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has hosted six matches in the ongoing season, while one was washed out. The surface has been balanced for both batters and the bowlers. Targets of 200 or more have been chased twice, while scores lower than 170 have also challenged the batting sides.

Batting will be challenging if a black-soil surface is laid out, as seen in the GT vs SRH game, where the Titans found it hard to chase 163.
