Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane wished Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) best wishes ahead of their Qualifier 1, against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 which will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, on Tuesday.

Kane moved to Munich during the summer of 2023 by leaving his boyhood club Tottenham Hotspur and ended this season as the club’s top scorer. 

The English striker extended his best wishes to KKR on Tuesday. 

"Hey Kolkata Knight Riders, a great start to the season. Wishing all the Knights a very best for the remainder of the season. Sending our support from Bayern Munich," said Harry Kane, in the video uploaded by KKR on their social media accounts.

Remember, the last round match of IPL 2024 between Kolkata and Rajasthan Royals (RR) was abandoned due to rain and, as a result, KRR finished as the table-toppers with 20 points while RR ended at the number three with 17 points.

Sunrisers Hyderabad finished ahead of the RR despite having the same points since Pat Cummins' side got the edge due to a better net run rate. Royal Challengers Bengaluru finished in the fourth spot after they defeated Chennai Super Kings in a virtual knockout on May 18.

KKR and SRH have two chances of qualifying for the IPL 2024 final after finishing at the top two of the points table since the loser of Qualifier 1 will take on the winner of Eliminator on May 24.
