That's it from us in our coverage of the IPL 2017 eliminator, with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) emerging on top thanks to some disciplined bowling by the likes of Nathan Coulter-Nile, as well as some help from the rain gods. And so ends the run of defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in this tournament, though they ensured they gave KKR a good scare in their chase of the curtailed target.
We shall return for the coverage of the next clash, with KKR taking on Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier at this very venue on Friday. KKR will look to avenge the twin losses to Rohit Sharma and Co in the group stages of this year's tournament in what promises to be a cracker of a contest.
Till then, we bid you goodnight!
