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.
19.5AlHasan to SGill
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!
19.4AlHasan to SGill
A yorker now, fired outside off, Shubman can only dig it back to the bowler.
19.3AlHasan to SGill
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!
19.2AlHasan to ARussell
Full and around middle, swung hard, gets it off the inside edge towards deep mid-wicket. Just a single. 11 needed from 5 now.
19.1AlHasan to ARussell
WIDE. Pressure. Fired down the leg side, Russell lets it go.
Last over. 12 to defend. Shakib to bowl. Russell with the sword.
18.6BKumar to ARussell
Short and outside off, Russell slaps it towards sweeper cover for a single. 21 from this over, 19 from the previous, Kolkata are cruising!
18.5BKumar to ARussell
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!
18.4BKumar to ARussell
Full and outside off, Andre swings but misses.
18.3BKumar to ARussell
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!
18.2BKumar to ARussell
SIX! That is a monster! 10 off 2 balls and Kolkata are surely the favourites now. 24 needed from 10 deliveries. A length ball again, Russell swings hard and clears mid-wicket with ease!
18.1BKumar to ARussell
FOUR! The over begins with a boundary! What a strike from Russell. A length ball, around off, Dre Rus swings it wide of mid on for a boundary!
17.6SKaul to ARussell
A high full toss outside off, Russell whacks it past the bowler for a run at long off. 19 from the over, 34 needed off 12 balls.
17.5SKaul to ARussell
FOUR! Russell is unleashed. Width on offer outside off, he shows no mercy and spanks it through covers for a cracking boundary. This boy is very, very strong. Can he finish this over with one more big blow?
17.4SKaul to SGill
Slower one probably, landing fuller on off, Gill swings his bat and it goes off the inner half to deep mid-wicket for one. Two huge deliveries coming up...
17.3SKaul to ARussell
Blazed away but finds the fielder. A short of a length ball on off, angling in, Russell plunders his pull to deep mid-wicket for a run.
17.2SKaul to ARussell
SIX! Two in a row! Game on. All the good work done by Kumar in the last over is going down the drain. A low full toss by Kaul, Andre lines himself and launches it over the bowler's head. 12 from the over already.
17.1SKaul to ARussell
SIX! A cracking beginning to the over for Kolkata! Dre Russ getting into the act. Gets one right in the slot. It's full and on middle and leg, Russell clears his front leg and clobbers it 91m long into the deep mid-wicket stand.
Siddarth Kaul is into the attack.
16.6BKumar to ARussell
Wow, another terrific yorker, right in the blockhole, not much a batsman can do about it. Andre only manages to dig it out. It goes one bounce over the bowler and they steal a run. 6 from the over at this stage is gold for Hyderabad. 53 needed off 18 balls.
16.5BKumar to SGill
Spears in a fuller ball on middle, this is quality stuff from Bhuvi. Gill keeps it out off the inner half to short fine leg for one.
16.4BKumar to ARussell
Gets away with a bad delivery. Short and wide outside off with third man up inside the circle. Russell attacks it with all his might but mistimes his shot towards covers. Only a run.
16.3BKumar to SGill
Width on offer outside off, Gill reaches out and slaps it to sweeper cover for just one. Singles won't do for them.
16.2BKumar to SGill
Pitches it up and outside off, it's driven through covers for a couple.
16.1BKumar to SGill
Starts this spell by hitting the yorker mark. Gill digs it out back to the bowler.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns into the bowling attack. 59 needed off 24 balls.
15.6RKhan to ARussell
FOUR! Fine, fine shot! Goes with the spin and lofts it over covers. Ends the over well but it's been a great spell from Rashid, 4-0-26-1!
15.5RKhan to SGill
Goes on the back foot and pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a run.
15.4RKhan to SGill
Shortish and outside off, Shubman reaches out and hits it to covers.
Shubman Gill is in next.
15.3RKhan to NRana
OUT! The break has hampered Rana's momentum certainly. He has been adjudged lbw! Rashid lets out a flatter and quicker leg break delivery around leg. It spins back in slightly to beat Rana's bat and hits him on the pads. They appeal and the finger goes up. Nitish has a chat with his partner but decides not to take the referral. He is off. A big blow to Kolkata.
Welcome back after the break. In fact, we have not resumed. The light towers have still not come back to normal and the PLAYERS ARE WALKING OFF. All the lights have been turned off and are being switched back on. 6 MINUTES - indicates umpire Chaudhury. We are going into overtime.
Oops... what has happened? One of the light towers has stopped functioning. The umpires have sensibly signalled for the strategic break. Kolkata are probably finding themselves in troubled waters here. 64 needed from 28 balls but with Russell, Gill and Narine to come, they will back themselves. Hyderabad still have 2 overs of Bhuvneshwar after this and one over of Siddarth Kaul. They will back themselves too.
15.2RKhan to NRana
Looks to sweep this time but misses and is hit on the pads.
15.1RKhan to NRana
FOUR! Nicely done! A full ball, outside leg, Rana gets down and reverse sweeps it over short third man!
14.7SSharma to ARussell
A super delivery that. Perfect blockhole delivery. Russell just manages it to keep it away. Sandeep Sharma comes around the wicket and just darts it to perfection. 68 runs needed now of 30 deliveries.
14.6SSharma to NRana
A low full toss on off, Rana slices it to deep cover region for a single.
14.5SSharma to NRana
SIX! That looked like a miscue but it has gone all the way! A high full toss outside off, Rana looks to go over mid off, miscues it but still manages to clear the fence!
14.4SSharma to ARussell
Around off, Andre swings hard but the ball comes in, takes the inner half of the bat and goes towards mid-wicket. A run taken.
14.3SSharma to NRana
Around middle, pushed through mid on for a single.
