That is it from this game! The next match is between Rajasthan and Punjab in Sharjah on September 27, 2020. Join us at 1800 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and cheers!
The MAN OF THE MATCH IS SHUBMAN GILL. He starts off by saying that the ball was not spinning so much so it was easier to hit down the ground. Adds that he has practiced his power hitting over the years. States that it was important for the team to win and they bowled really well and the batsmen had to back them up. Tells that Morgan was batting really well. Ends by saying that as an opener, he wanted to pull the team over the line.
Dinesh Karthik, Kolkata skipper, says he is happy to get on board. Adds that the advantage of having all-rounder is always good for them. Mentions that they are grooming the youngsters and they are doing well. Credits the franchise on backing these young players. Karthik also says that Gill is enjoying his journey and he will not pressure him in any sense and he just wants him to enjoy his cricketing journey. Mentions that Brendon McCullum lets the best batters bat on top and they will stick with this and he will need to add some more runs to his kit.
Eoin Morgan is down for an interview. He starts by saying that he is happy with the performance of the team. On advising Gill, Morgan tells he did not say much to him and was impressed with his batting. Mentions that the bowlers did well to restrict Hyderabad. Morgan also says that the pitches have been different because of the heat.
David Warner, Hyderabad skipper, starts off by saying that his decision to bat first was right and says that their strength is in their death bowling. Adds that there is a little bit of movement on the pitch and that they were not good in the middle and an extra 30 or 40 runs would have done them well. States that their batting has to start well at the top and they have to improve their boundary percentages. Ends by saying that he doesn't know what happened to Pandey and hopes that it is only a cramp.
Coming to Hyderabad, the bowlers did not have enough runs to defend with. Rashid bowled well and picked up a wicket. Natarajan was a bit wayward and Bhuvneshwar Kumar went wicketless today. The Hyderabad batting was not upto the mark. Only Manish Pandey was the highest scorer for them as he scored 51. David Warner could not carry on to play a big innings.
It has been an outstanding performance from Kolkata. Shubman Gill was the key man to the chase and he stayed till the end. They lost Narine early and then Nitish Rana played some shots but he also threw away his wicket. Dinesh Karthik did not make much of an impact. A 92-run stand between Morgan and Gill sealed the chase for Kolkata.

STRATEGIC TIME-OUT! Kolkata, look like they are in a pole position to finish this game off as Gill and Morgan have stitched a good 50-run plus partnership, with Russell coming out next if one of them drops. They just need 30 runs in 30 balls and are looking very comfortable. Hyderabad, on the other hand, will have to pick a few quick wickets and they will need a collapse from Kolkata if they are to win. Rashid Khan is introduced back into the attack. His figures so far : 3-0-18-1.
