Get ready for an exhilarating showdown as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the highly anticipated IPL 2024! With new captains at the helm, both teams are eager to kick off the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League with a bang at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

This season, KKR sees the return of Shreyas Iyer as captain, after missing out last year due to a back injury. Meanwhile, seasoned ODI World Cup-winning captain Pat Cummins will lead SRH, aiming to steer the team to success.

Adding to the excitement, Gautam Gambhir, KKR’s most successful leader, returns as a mentor. Gambhir’s previous stint from 2011 to 2017 saw KKR clinch two IPL titles and make it to the playoffs five times. The anticipation is high as KKR makes a significant signing with Mitchell Starc joining the squad for a record sum of Rs 24.75 crore. Starc faces immense pressure to perform and live up to expectations.

On the SRH side, Pat Cummins, fresh off leading Australia to victory in the World Test Championship, shoulders the responsibility of rejuvenating the team’s performance after a disappointing last season. As one of the most expensive buys at this IPL auction, Cummins not only bears the weight of captaincy but also the expectation to excel with the ball.

With both teams gearing up for an intense battle, the stage is set for an enthralling start to what promises to be an action-packed IPL season. Get ready for a cricketing spectacle as KKR takes on SRH in this epic clash!
