So that is it from this game! The Indian T20 League action continues on Monday as Punjab take on Rajasthan. Do join us for that at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and cheers!
Nitish Rana is named the Man of the Match. He says that the ball was in his slot and that is why he hit the first ball for a boundary. Mentions that he was looking to hit the ball when it was in his slot. Ends by saying that he has played a lot of spin while growing up and he backed himself to play big shots.
Eoin Morgan, Kolkata skipper, says that he is delighted with the victory. Adds that the bowlers did well to defend the total. Mentions that Nitish Rana was superb with his batting. Further says that the support staff have done well to back the players. Morgan also says that Harbhajan bowled the first over well. Mentions that everybody has a role to play. Further says that they were happy with the score at the halfway stage.
Prasid Krishna is down for an interview. He says that he is happy with the victory. Adds that every single person contributed to the victory. Mentions that his performance in the Vijay Hazare Trophy helped him here. Further says that the series against England gave him good confidence. Krishna also says that we have some of the biggest hitters in our side.
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.

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!

Andre Russell To Manish Pandey
Very full again, this is hit down to long on for one more. So that should be it, that should be the game for Kolkata.
19.3

Andre Russell To Abdul Samad
A single now! 19 needed in three balls. If Russell bowls three legal balls, Kolkata can't lose. It is fuller and on middle, Samad swings, it goes off the inner half towards square leg for one.
19.2

Andre Russell To Abdul Samad
A dot! Shorter and outside off. Samad goes after it. It goes off the under edge and on the bounce to the keeper. The next one has to be hit out. Had Samad left that, it would have been a wide.

Andre Russell To Abdul Samad
Just a couple from the first ball! Not a lot you can do with that ball! It is a yorker on off, it is jammed down to long off for two. 20 needed.
22 needed then in the last over! Can Samad do it? Russell to bowl.

Andre Russell To Vijay Shankar OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! This is an outstanding over from Russell! One which has probably won them for his side. Just the 6 runs and a wicket from it. This is full and outside off. Shankar looks to loft it over the off side but he too ends up splicing it towards the man there. Morgan moves to his left and takes it.
