What an exciting match this was. It will be a repeat of Qualifier 1 as Sunrisers Hyderabad will meet Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 27 May. SRH pull off a convincing 13-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders.
Rashid Khan was the difference between both the teams. Kolkata Knight Riders would be ruing the missed chances as they had SRH on the mat in the first innings before Rashid went on a rampage with the bat, hitting a 10-ball 35 to take the Sunrisers total to 174.
Though KKR were right on course in the chase, the Afghanistan bowler broke the backbone of Kolkata's batting with his incisive bowling. Shakib Al Hasan and Siddarth Kaul also chipped in with important wickets. A complete all-round effort from Kane Williamson and co to enter the final of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League.
