At MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad handily to win their third IPL championship on Sunday. With an 8-wicket victory, Shreyas Iyer put an end to KKR's decade-long championship drought. SRH lost to KKR for the third time this season as a result of their inability to keep up in a one-sided game.

The lowest total in an IPL final was reached by KKR when they bowled out Hyderabad for just 113. Mitchell Starc, the star pacer from Australia, was instrumental in the victory with statistics of 2-14, more than justifying his hefty cost in the league. Venkatesh Iyer scored an undefeated 52 runs off just 26 balls to help KKR chase down the goal in just 10.3 overs, making the triumph appear easy.
