IPL 2024, Qualifier 1 KKR vs SRH IPL Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Iyer or Starc? Player of the Match goes to…

IPL 2024, Qualifier 1 KKR vs SRH IPL Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Veteran Australian pacer Mitchell Starc sparked a top-order collapse of the Hyderabad giants in the Qualifier. The KKR pacer bagged three crucial wickets in the powerplay to force SRH to register a below-par total against the two-time winners. Starc bagged three wickets and leaked 34 runs in his four overs. The 2023 World Cup winner was named the Player of the Match. “We know how important the powerplay is. These were the two sides who have dominated in the powerplay with the bat. We needed to pick early wickets and get into their middle-order. The way Head and Abhishek have been playing thoughout the tournament, they like width and free their arms. We just tried to swing the ball and not provide them width. Bowl stump to stump. The spinners were effective and the whole bowling department bowled well. Got lucky I guess (on taking Head's wicket), was nice to see his back early, not always the case,” Starc said after the match.

I think the way every bowler stood up to this occasion, the way they came in and took wickets, that was imperative,” Iyer said after KKR’s memorable win over SRH.

IPL 2024, Qualifier 1 KKR vs SRH IPL Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Pat Cummins wants SRH to move on from the heavy defeat at the hands of KKR, who have entered their fourth final of the IPL. SRH will meet either RCB or RR in the Qualifier 1 for a place in the final. The winner of the Qualifier will meet KKR in the IPL 2024 final. RCB will lock horns with RR in the Eliminator at the IPL 2024 playoffs on Wednesday.

“Yeah we will try to put this behind quickly, good thing we will have a crack at it (second qualifier). You have those days in T20 cricket where things doesn't quite work out. We weren't where we wanted with the bat and obviously couldn't do much with the ball. Felt that extra batting was important (picking the impact sub) on this wicket. Thought KKR bowled really well, there was a little bit in it early on and the surface got better. We all have played enough cricket, and going to a new venue (Chennai) helps us as well, so we gotta keep this behind and move on,” Cummins said after the match.

IPL 2024, Qualifier 1 KKR vs SRH IPL Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: What Gambhir said about KKR's Fair Play rankings

IPL 2024, Qualifier 1 KKR vs SRH IPL Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir has revealed the reason behind his side's poor ranking in Fair Play standings. Gambhir joked that KKR will top the Fair Play rankings after his warm embrace for Virat Kohli in the IPL 2024. Gambhir hugged Kohli after KKR's match against RCB. "Honestly, I will tell you, this year, I thought that we would be at the top of the Fair Play Award table because of what has happened in Chinnaswamy (hug between him and Virat). There is no even competition, irrespective of where we are on the points table, but we've got to be at the top of the fair play award but still, we are at the bottom," Gambhir said.

"Someone sent me a message a couple of days back: KKR is where KKR is at the moment. I said, yeah. In the top, no. In fair play, at number 10 (currently number nine). Is there a trophy? I said, no. And I still do not understand. We played pretty fair. What wrong have we done in the last five games? I do not think so we have done anything wrong. And still we are number 10. Probably it is just because I am sitting in that dugout," Gambhir added.
