Bhuvneshwar Kumar has picked 11 wickets in the IPL 2024 till now.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) veteran pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is confident of winning this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) title. The Pat Cummins-led SRH is all set to take on the Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the grand finale of the IPL 2024 at the M.A. Chidambaram stadium in Chennai on May 26.

Under the leadership of the newly appointed skipper Pat Cummins, SRH have had a solid run in the ongoing IPL 2024. The franchise finished in second place with 17 points at the end of the league stage. However, they suffered a big defeat against two-time champions KKR by eight wickets in Qualifier 1.

The Cummins-led SRH played Qualifier 2 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Chennai, where they hammered the Royals by 36 runs on May 24. After winning the match, Hyderabad reached the final. This is SRH’s first final in the cash-rich league since 2018.

Under the leadership of David Warner, Hyderabad won their maiden IPL title in 2016. However, in the 2018 season, the Kane Williamson-led SRH lost the final against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Notably, in the last three IPL editions, Hyderabad had a horrific period, and in fact, they finished at bottom of the points table in the 2023 edition.

We will definitely win the trophy: Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Ahead of the high-voltage clash against Kolkata, SRH pacer Bhuvneshwar said that it’s a great feeling to reach the IPL 2024 final. Kumar further added that his side is confident of winning the trophy. The right-arm pacer Kumar has scalped 11 wickets in 15 matches at an economy of 9.24 so far in the ongoing IPL 2024.

“It’s a different feeling because we hadn’t played in the playoffs for the last three seasons. It’s a great feeling. The way we were playing this season, we had a feeling we would reach the final, and then it was a one-match scenario. Everyone’s happy with how everyone has contributed, it was fantastic teamwork. Winning the IPL title is really special and now that we have reached the final, we will definitely win the trophy,” Bhuvneshwar told Jiocinema.
