    After completing 70 league games in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, it is now time for the Playoffs to take place before the final on May 26, 2024. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) have made it into the Top 4. 

    Now, Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024 will see table-topper Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) go head-to-head against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on May 21 (Tuesday) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

    KKR vs SRH:

    The goal for Kolkata Knight Riders will be to guarantee their place in the IPL 2024 Finals. Despite having their final two group-stage matches abandoned owing to bad weather, they were still able to secure the top place. But Phil Salt's departure—he went home for national duty—will make KKR's batting order more difficult. They are nonetheless well-suited to deal with the circumstance since the middle order includes skipper Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, and Nitish Rana. 

    However, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Punjab Kings (PBKS) to secure the second position in the IPL 2024. Many teams have tried to imitate SRH's ultra-aggressive batting style, which has set the standard for the IPL 2024. Heinrich Klaasen and Nitish Reddy have been a steady middle-order partnership for openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, who have both put on outstanding performances.
