KKR vs SRH Qualifier 1: Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report

KKR vs SRH Qualifier 1: The TATA IPL 2024 is heading to the business end and after the completion of the group stage, the first qualifier i.e., KKR vs SRH is scheduled to be played on 21 May (Tuesday). The buzz is on fire for the battle between the two best teams of the TATA IPL 2024 and here we are with the Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report, KKR vs SRH Records & Stats and Ahmedabad Weather Forecast.

Sunrisers Hyderabad came up on the back of a dominating win against Punjab Kings in their last match. Punjab set them up for a 215-run target and SRH crossed the line even though their top player Travis Head was the first ball duck in the chase.

They have been the nightmare for the bowlers this season, especially in the batting powerplay where their season-average powerplay score is over 90 while batting first. Even last night, when they batted second, they put up 84 runs on the board without Travis Head.

Head has been in the limelight but his opening partner Abhishek Sharma is equally deadly for bowlers. Sharma has played 13 matches in the tournament where he scored 467 runs with a strike rate of 202 and an average of around 40. This opening duo will be the biggest challenge for Kolkata Knight Riders in the upcoming contest.

Kolkata Knight Riders have also not shown any sympathy to the bowlers. They also possess an opening duo that has slayed the bowling attacks this year. They have an average powerplay score of 75 runs while batting first in the TATA IPL 2024.

While SRH have Head and Sharma, KKR are up there with Sunil Narine. However, his opening partner Phill Salt has returned to England for World Cup preparations, so KKR will have to look for another equally flammable opener.

As they march into a pivotal showdown, the Knight Riders, crowned champions twice and now reigning at the summit of the points table for the first time in 17 long seasons, face a daunting challenge. Their blades, though sharp, have not tasted the heat of a full 40-over battle since May 5.

This lapse could spell trouble for Shreyas Iyer’s warriors, the architects of a revolutionary strategy in the IPL, one that mirrors the very essence of their adversaries, the relentless Sunrisers Hyderabad, in the high-stakes Qualifier 1.

It is going to be fire vs fire. Still, one will end up losing the contest and this is the benefit of finishing the league stage at the top two spots, even after losing the qualifier 1, you get another chance against the winning team of the Eliminator round.
