After restricting Hurricanes to 140 with its quality spin bowling in the first semifinal of tournament, the Kolkata team chased down the target with five balls to spare as Jacques Kallis hoisted Bollinger to six to seal yet another victory.

Kallis remained unbeaten on 54 (40b, 4x4,2x6) and was adjudged man-of-the-match. His 63-run partnership for third wicket with Manish Pandey and unbeaten 34-run stand with Yusuf Pathan helped KKR to extend their winning streak to 14 matches.

Pandey struck six boundaries and a six in his 32-ball 40 to steer the team after the openers had returned to the pavilion at 44 in the eighth over.

KKR, which remained unbeaten in this tournament, will meet Chennai Super Kings or Kings XI Punjab in the final in Bangalore on Saturday.

Man of the Match - Jacques Kallis! That's it from the first semi-final. Stay tuned to find out who'll be the second team to make it to the finals. Join us back for the second semi-final between Chennai and Punjab. See you in a bit then!

!

Hobart tried their best but the in-form Kolkata line-up was once again unstoppable. 14 consecutive wins for the Indian side now and they look well on course to grab the title as well. As of now, we'll have to wait who'll join them as an opponent on Saturday.

!

So Kolkata are into the Champions League final for the first time! Hobart offered some fight but 140 was never going to be enough. Kolkata lost their skipper early and then later on Uthappa was out as well. Kallis and Pandey then shared a 63-run stand between them which turned out to be the match-winning partnership. Pandey couldn't capitalize but Kallis stayed unbeaten.
