lbw b Rashid Khan
- That is all we have for you from this game. But do not go anywhere. The Mumbai-Delhi encounter has already begun...
- Who will be the Man Of The Match? Andre Russell? Or Nitish Rana? ANDRE RUSSELL has been given the award.
- A tough outing for all the bowlers but perhaps the dew came into play. Only Rashid Khan was at his best but Kolkata played him out well - just 1 wicket for 26 runs.
- Hyderabad will be bitterly disappointed. They had the match in their grasp but let it slip towards the end very badly. The 18th over went for 19 by Kaul. The 19th went for 21 by Bhuvi. And Hyderabad could not recover at all. It was all Andre Russell magic, as he clobbered a 19-ball 49, staying unbeaten, with 4 fours and 4 sixes. Rana and Uthappa played their part, not letting the wickets fall and the match slip too much. However, had Hyderabad hung on to that chance of Uthappa, they might have come out trumps.
- Phew. What a match. Unbelievable scenes at Eden. At the end of the 16th over in the first innings, Kolkata seemed down and out, with Hyderabad ready to touch 200. They pulled it back. At the end of the 16th over in the second innings, Kolkata seemed down and out again, needing 59 from the final 4 overs. But the end is what matters.
- 19.4 SIX! Game, set and match! That is how they say in Tennis. Gill has ended the game in style. Full and around middle, Shubman dances out of his crease and sends it flying over long on! The helmet comes off and then the hug with Dre Russ. KOLKATA WIN BY 6 WICKETS!
- 19.3 A yorker now, fired outside off, Shubman can only dig it back to the bowler.
- 19.2 SIX! If Russell can hit, I can go big too! Gill gets into the act. Jumps out of his crease, gets to the pitch of the ball and thumps it over long on!
- 19.1 Full and around middle, swung hard, gets it off the inside edge towards deep mid-wicket. Just a single. 11 needed from 5 now.
- 19.1 WIDE. Pressure. Fired down the leg side, Russell lets it go.
- Last over. 12 to defend. Shakib to bowl. Russell with the sword.
- 18.6 Short and outside off, Russell slaps it towards sweeper cover for a single. 21 from this over, 19 from the previous, Kolkata are cruising! 169/4
- 18.5 SIX! That is just unbelievable! Full and outside off, Russell reaches out, mistimes his carve but still gets it over cover for half a dozen!
- 18.4 Full and outside off, Andre swings but misses.
- 18.3 FOUR! 14 from the first 3 balls! Russell has come out with a mission. He is just taking everyone to the cleaners. Full and outside off, the West Indian blasts this past the bowler, through mid off!
