KKR wins IPL title

KKR registered a comprehensive eight-wicket victory in the IPL 2024 final, while also bowling out their opponents for 113.

Andre Russell took three wickets while Vaibhav Arora and Mitchell Starc took two.

Bowling coach Bharat Arun raved the performances of his bowlers.

“It has been pretty tough the last two years, we didn’t qualify and there has been introspection and we worked on areas which needed to be worked on.”

Arun also praised Harshit Rana, who finished the season as KKR’s joint-second-highest wicket-taker.

[on Harhsit Rana] He has been outstanding and it’s about the bowler understanding what his strengths are and when he does, it comes out beautifully on the ground. Mitch coming into the team boosted the confidence of the other youngsters,” Arun said after the match.

“He has been one of the best bowlers in world cricket and he has been in such situations before, it’s about understanding Indian conditions and once he did that, it is magic all over. They have been outstanding, spinners mature with age, both bowling in tandem has worked exceptionally for us. He has brought a totally different dimension to our batting this year and it was Gautam who insisted that Sunny open and what Sunny did was outstanding.”

Banerjee congratulates KKR

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee posted a congratulatory message to KKR on social media.

“Kolkata Knight Riders’ win has brought about an air of celebration all across Bengal,” she wrote on X.

“I would like to personally congratulate the players, the support staff and the franchise for their record breaking performance in this season of the IPL. Wishing for more such enchanting victories in the years to come!”
