The Qualifier 1 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad is expected to be exciting and thrilling as both teams will look to best foot forward in order to directly book their spots. Two teams are strong favourites to win the IPL trophy this team, given their impressive campaigns in the ongoing season of the tournament.

Returning of Shreyas Iyer and Gautam Gambhir as captain and mentor, respectively, Kolkata Knight Riders witnessed a big turnaround compared to their previous seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the IPL 2023, KKR finished at the seventh on the points table with six wins in their 14 outings and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

While Sunrisers Hyderabad have been performing well under the dynamic leadership of Pat Cummins. Hyderabad-based IPL franchise splurged a whopping INR 20.50 crore to rope in Cummins at the IPL 2024 Auction in Dubai in December and later appointed him as a captain of the team. Pat Cummins's success as an Australia captain last year led to his appointment as a captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
