Reflecting on his achievement, Shreyas Iyer revealed his premonition about KKR’s qualification, saying, “I had it revealed even before the game.”

One of the key moments in their match against MI was KKR’s ability to bounce back from challenging situations. Despite a solid start from MI openers Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma, KKR bowlers showed their resilience led by Shreyas Iyer’s strategic decisions on the field.

By supporting the right bowlers at crucial times, KKR effectively controlled MI’s batting lineup and emerged victorious in a tense encounter.

KKR’s batting performance led by Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell and Rinku Singh laid the foundation for their victory by posting a competitive score of 157 runs.

Despite MI’s valiant efforts, including notable contributions from Tilak Verma and Naman Dheer, they missed the final over and were unable to chase down the target set by KKR.

As KKR celebrates their historic qualification for the playoffs, they can be proud of their collective efforts and team spirit, which have been instrumental in their success.

With their eyes set on the ultimate prize, KKR will look to maintain their momentum and continue their winning streak as they aim to clinch the IPL 2024 title.
