Stadium. Mitchell Starc showcased his bowling prowess at the top of the cash-rich league, helping KKR beat SRH by just 113 points as the 2016 winners recorded their lowest total in an IPL final.

The world's most expensive cricket tournament ended on Sunday with Kolkata winning the title against Pat Cummins-led Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai. Mitchell Starc justified his eye-popping auction price with a magical performance as Kolkata Knight Riders put on an all-out bowling show to send Sunrisers Hyderabad to the pavilion for 113 runs. This is the lowest SRH rating for a team batting first in an IPL final. He bowled 18.3 overs. RCB failed to make it through the playoffs, causing a lot of angst among the fans. But fans had reason to smile last night. India's star batsman Virat Kohli ended the 2024 IPL season with the Orange Cap for most performances in a season, becoming the only Indian to win the award twice. King Kohli scored 741 runs in 15 matches at an average of 61.75 with one century and 5 fifties. In contrast, Harshal Patel of Punjab Kings won the purple cap. He finished 14 matches with 24 wickets, an economy rate of 9.73 and an average of 19.87. He won his first purple cap in 2021 for Royal Challengers Bangalore, taking 32 wickets in one season. Kolkata Knight Riders enigmatic opener Varun Chakraborty had a chance to overtake Patel in the last over of the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Chepauk. Varun needed five wickets to overtake Patel in the rankings. However, he claimed the only wicket of Shahbaz Ahmed as the Raiders claimed their third IPL title.
