Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday. Australian World Cup-winning captain Pat Cummins will need a top performance from the team if they are to win another major title on Sunday.

IPL Final Today: Kolkata vs Hyderabad

5 days after being easily defeated in the playoffs by the hands of Kolkata, they are going to face the same opponent again. Hyderabad beat Rajasthan Royals by 36 runs in the final qualifier on Friday.

With this, the team reached the IPL final for the third time. In the first qualifier held on Tuesday, this team was defeated by two-time champions Kolkata by 8 wickets. Hyderabad has won the title of the richest World Twenty20 tournament in one go. This was possible in 2016 under the leadership of another Australian player, David Warner.

Hyderabad paid $2.5 million for fast bowler Cummins in the IPL auction. Under his captaincy, Australia won not only the ODI World Cup, but also the World Test Championship title. "The last few years have been great for me. However, I have not led any Twenty20 team before IPL this time. So I can't say what to expect," he said in a conversation with the media, "but I think the IPL title is not too far away now."

Cummins and his Australian teammates disappointed the home fans when they beat India in the World Cup final at the world's biggest cricket stadium last November. Hyderabad assistant coach Simon Helmot said about Cummins, "He is a very practical and big-hearted player. Has a very close relationship with his teammates and coaching group.

He knows enough about his rival team.' Hyderabad has set up two big scores in the history of the competition this season, 277 and 287 runs. Cummins's right leadership and the policy of playing the bowlers in the right turns will make Hyderabad look strong on the field. His main opponent in the final will be Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc. In the first qualifier, Hyderabad were crushed by his accurate bowling. He became the most expensive player in the same auction, surpassing Cummins.

Kolkata paid 2.9 million 80 thousand dollars for him. Starc took 3 wickets for 34 runs by dismissing Hyderabad's Australian opener Travis Head for a wicket. Kolkata is led by Shreyas Iyer. This is the only team of this tournament, which can be called the best. Kolkata was on top with 20 points from the 10-team league stage.

No one could touch the team in the league stage. Apart from Starc, Kolkata has brought in former India batsman Gautam Gambhir as a mentor this time. Under the leadership of Gambhir, Kolkata won the IPL title in 2012 and 2014. The Chidambaram Stadium was the venue for the final when Kolkata beat Chennai Super Kings last time to become champions. About Gambhir, Aiyar says, 'How to play cricket, others may not know as much as Gautam.'

Gambhir is considered to be a very skilled strategist. So he won the title twice. Kolkata have lost only three matches this season. All-rounder Sunil Naran has been doing well with the bat after getting the opener's role. He has scored 482 runs. It includes a century. Spinner Varun Chakraborty and fast bowler Harshit Rana are both in form. Both have taken 37 wickets between them.

What they know best is Hyderabad's opening pair of Head and Abhishek Sharma. Head has scored 567 runs. He is second on the run-scoring list after Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers. Kohli has scored 741 runs. 23-year-old Abhishek has scored 482 runs from the bat. He is considered the future star of Indian cricket.
