    David Warner, Hyderabad skipper, says that Kolkata had a good score on the board. Adds that they did not get off to a great start to the chase. Mentions that Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey's partnership was crucial for them. Further says that after Bairstow's wicket it was too much for them. Warner also says that they will look to perform better in the next match.

    Earlier in the day, Kolkata, courtesy Rana got to a total which is above par after being asked to bat. Hyderabad did well in their run chase courtesy Pandey and Bairstow but their efforts went in vain as it was Kolkata who finished on top.

    The Kolkata bowlers began brilliantly but then had no answers to the onslaught by Bairstow. However, Cummins bowled an exceptional over where he gave away just the two runs and got the big wicket of Bairstow and that probably changed the game. Have to say that over won the game for the Kolkata as Jonny was taking it away from them. Russell and Varun were also excellent. The latter through the middle and the former towards the end. Overall, Morgan will be happy with this win.

    A really good win for Kolkata! However, Hyderabad did really well to come this close. Especially after they lost their openers early. Bairstow and Pandey then got things back on track after a superb stand between the two. Bairstow though fell at the wrong time immediately after reaching his half ton but Pandey continued. He though kept losing partners at one end and the run rate also kept rising and rising. In the end, it became an uphil task and his side fell short by a little in the end.

    Over: 20 | 11 Runs

    Andre Russell to Manish Pandey

    SIX! Over the ropes but this one won't matter! Too little, too late! A slower one on middle, Pandey slams it over mid-wicket. A biggie to end but it is KOLKATA WHO WIN BY 10 RUNS!

    Just a single again! Outside off, it is hit towards cover for one.
