Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Shreyas Iyer imitates his teammate Sunil Narine's bowling action during the practice session ahead of the IPL 2024 Final against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, May 26.

KKR will take on SRH in the much-anticipated title clash in Chennai. Shreyas Iyer-led side directly made it to the final after defeating Pat Cummins and his boys in the Qualifier 2 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Tuesday, May 21.

With five days away from the Final after Qualifier 1, KKR players started to practice hard to ensure no stone is left unturned in their preparation for the final. Amid the practice sessions, the players had fun time as well. In a video shared by KKR on its Instagram handle, Shreyas Iyer was seen imitating Sunil Narine's bowling action to perfection in the nets.

The return of Shreyas Iyer as a skipper has turned the fortunes of the team in the ongoing IPL season. Kolkata Knight Riders finished the league stage as the table toppers with nine wins in their 14 outings and accumulated 20 points. Their final two league stage matches against Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals were washed out due to rain in Ahmedabad and Guwahati, respectively.

Shreyas Iyer will look to become the second captain to lead Kolkata Knight Riders to the elusive IPL title.
