We have priced up Kolkata Knight Riders as the 13/8 favourites to win the 2024 Indian Premier League after the two-time winners progressed through to the playoffs.

Odds will display when the market is available.

Captained by India international Shreyas Iyer, the Knight Riders have won nine and lost just three of their 13 matches, with one final league game to come against fellow trophy contenders Rajasthan Royals ahead of the playoffs.

Prior to the abandonment of their game against Gujarat Titans, Chandrakant Pandit's side won four successive IPL games to book their place in a Qualifier 1 clash in Ahmedabad, which effectively gives Kolkata two bites of the cherry to reach the final in Chennai.

After winning the IPL in 2012 and 2014, it is now 10 years since Kolkata lifted the IPL trophy and they have only reached the final once in that time, as they lost out to Chennai Super Kings in 2021.

Much of their success this time around has been down to West Indies all-rounder Sunil Narine, who has been the standout player in IPL 2024 with 461 runs plus 15 wickets at an impressive average of 20.80.

His economy rate of 6.64 is bettered only by Jasprit Bumrah of Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, and he is ably backed up in the bowling department by Australian Mitchell Starc and Indian leg-spinner Varun Chakravarthy.

The form team in this year's tournament are likely to take some stopping and they are 4/11 to reach the final on Sunday 26th May.

Any odds displayed were correct at the time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.
