It will be a repeat of the first Qualifier as Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns in the final of the Indian Premier League 2024 on Sunday evening at MA Chidambaram Stadium. Meanwhile, in this post, we will take a look at the top five player battles to watch out for in the KKR vs SRH contest.

KKR vs SRH Top 5 Player Battles

1 – Travis Head vs Mitchell Starc

Matches 1 (IPL)
Runs 0
Balls 2
Outs 1

Travis Head is an explosive batter at the top, while Mitchell Starc has been in a fine form for KKR with the new ball. Mitchell Starc won the first battle between the two Aussies in the first Qualifier. Hence, Travis Head will be itching to land a punch back to his fellow countryman in this contest.

2 – Abhishek Sharma vs Vaibhav Arora

Matches 3 (IPL)
Runs 15
Balls 16
Outs 1

Abhishek Sharma has been in an explosive mood in the IPL 2024 and has been scoring runs for fun inside the powerplay. On the other hand, Vaibhav Arora is the new-ball partner with Mitchell Starc for KKR. The right-arm pacer dismissed the left-handed southpaw in the first Qualifier and will be looking to repeat the same for his team.

3 – Heinrich Klaasen vs Varun Chakravarthy

Matches 3 (IPL)
Runs 31
Balls 15
Outs 1

Heinrich Klaasen is coming to this game off a half-century in the previous game, while Varun Chakravarthy is KKR’s leading wicket-taker in the IPL 2024. Klaasen is an explosive middle-order batter who likes to attack the spinner, while Varun Chakravarthy takes wickets without giving away many runs. The mystery spinner dismissed the Proteas batter in the last game and Heinrich Klaasen will be eager to bounce back with a strong performance.

4 – Shreyas Iyer vs Pat Cummins

Matches 3 (IPL)
Runs 33
Balls 17
Outs 0

Shreyas Iyer scored an unbeaten half-century in the previous game and he will be a key wicket for SRH to put some pressure on KKR’s batting. Pat Cummins usually picks wickets for the Orange Army in the middle overs but his record against Shreyas Iyer in the IPL hasn’t been great so far. However, the Aussie pacer has enough quality to trouble any batter on this planet on his given day.

5 – Rahmanullah Gurbaz vs Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Matches 2 (IPL)
Runs 17
Balls 12
Outs 1

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is an attacking batter at the top for Kolkata Knight Riders. The Afghan batter has the ability to take the game away from the opposition with his attacking gameplay. At the same time, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s main new-ball bowler. The right-arm pacer can swing the new ball both ways and trouble Rahmanullah Gurbaz from the word go.
