"Dare to Dream": KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir shares glimpse of IPL 2024 victory

CHENNAI: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) mentor Gautam Gambhir shared a glimpse of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 victory after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the final match of the tournament.

KKR lifted their third title under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer after thumping the Hyderabad-based franchise by 8 wickets on Sunday.

"Dare to Dream," Gambhir wrote on X after winning the IPL 2024 title and shared pictures from the IPL 2024 Final.

Since Gambhir's return as the mentor of the franchise in the 17th season of the IPL, KKR not only resurrected their fighting spirit and finished at the top of the table for the first time in the history of the tournament but also ended their 10-year trophyless drought.

Summarising the final match, SRH won the toss and elected to bat first. KKR rocked SRH with continuous wickets, with the big buy Mitchell Starc justifying his hefty price tag. Only skipper Pat Cummins (24 in 19 balls, with two fours and a six) and Aiden Markram (20 in 23 balls, with three fours) touched the 20-run mark and SRH was bundled out for 113 in 18.3 overs.

Andre Russell (3/19) was the top bowler for KKR. Starc (2/14) and Harshit Rana (2/24) also contributed well with the ball. Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy and Vaibhav Arora took a wicket each.

KKR pulled off the run-chase of 114 run-target in just 10.3 overs with eight wickets in hand. Venkatesh Iyer (52* in 26 balls, with four boundaries and three sixes) and Rahmanullah Gurbaz (39 in 32 balls, with five fours and two sixes) shined for KKR in the final match of the tournament.
