The IPL 2024 final will be the most exciting game of this season because the strongest teams have reached the final. There is no doubt that KKR and SRH surprised fans from all over the country.

KKR has two IPL titles and SRH has one IPL title. Hence, KKR can become another team to win 3 IPL titles after MI and CSK. 

Conclusion

No one can predict the result of the KKR vs SRH match of IPL 2024 because there are many factors. It is a neutral venue for both teams. KKR and SRH both have strong batting units. KKR have an edge in the spin department as SRH lacks powerful spinners.

Chidambaram Stadium is spin-friendly and KKR has giants in the form of Narine, Chakravarthy, and Suyyash Sharma. On the other hand, SRH has spectacular batters like Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, and Heinrich Klaasen among others, who can turn the tables on their own.

The toss offers assistance to teams batting first. However, with the dew factor, even batting first is also a big issue. 

BetWay's betting odds for the IPL 2024 finals indicate that SRH is favored over KKR, with odds of 1.23 for SRH and 1.89 for KKR.
