Well, we finally have our two finalists. Hyderabad overcame Kolkata in the latter's backyard and made their way to the final to battle it out with Chennai for glory. The epic encounter will take place on Sunday, 27th May, at 1900 local (1330 GMT) at the Wankhede Stadium. Expect a full stadium and a great atmosphere. Join in for the action then. Goodbye!
Man of the Match, Rashid Khan says it was a much-needed performance for him and he just tries to give his best every time. States that the focus was to maintain his concentration and hit the ball as it came. Let's everyone know that he started his career as a batsman, so he isn't totally alien to the big hits. Informs that the plan was to play straight, as the coaches and Mohammad Nabi always advise him to. Reckons that he always tries to improve his fitness and like every time, give his all in the field as well. Ends his interview by sending out a word of support and solidarity to the people back home who are suffering because of the recent bomb blasts.
Kane Williamson says the game could have gone either way in those crunch moments but is glad the boys got the job done. Credits Rashid Khan for his all-round performance with bat, ball and in the field. Continues saying that in such a must-win game, like on most occasions, he always stands up and delivers for the team. Remains humble when his captaincy is applauded and applauds the entire team for the effort it puts in and sticks together as a group. On the three changes, Williamson mentions that despite that, the balance of the team wasn't compromised which was the key. Adds that the players coming in played their part and it's been a collective effort. Wants to perform well again at the Wankhede and get the job done.
Dinesh Karthik says they played a good tournament so obviously feels disappointed to miss out now. States a couple of bad shots at the wrong time from the batsmen, including himself, cost them the game. Reckons there are plenty of positives to take, especially the youngsters coming up and showing what they are capable of.
Rashid Khan not only played a big role with the ball but his cameo with the bat also came in handy. His unbelievable knock helped Hyderabad post a very challenging total which eventually proved to be enough. It won't be wrong to say that the Afghan single-handedly ended Kolkata's dream with an all-round performance. A good run for the home team this season, they peaked superbly towards the end but it wasn't their night as they bow out. Presentation coming up...
Kolkata planned their chase well initially. It was going all hunky-dory for them as their openers looked to score quick runs and provided a solid platform. It was always supposed to be a tough task for them against Hyderabad's spinners, especially Rashid Khan and that turned out to be their undoing. The Afghan started it all with a brilliant piece of fielding to get Nitish Rana run out and then went on to remove Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn and Andre Russell with his smart variations. Shakib Al Hasan also bowled tidily from one end and picked up the prized scalp of Dinesh Karthik. Shubman Gill though showed promise but the asking rate was too much to handle for the youngster and he eventually succumbed. All in all, a clinical performance in the field, well led by Kane Williamson and Hyderabad find themselves in the summit clash.
Hyderabad have set a date with Chennai on Sunday for the Indian T20 League trophy! It wasn't a perfect last over by Carlos Brathwaite but it was enough to defend the runs in the bank. The West Indian once again has emerged hero at his favourite ground by holding his nerve under immense pressure. What a win for the Orange Army! They have not only ended their losing streak but have also booked their place in the final.

Carlos Brathwaite To Kuldeep Yadav
That's it! Kuldeep smacks it to long off. It's not enough, they miss out. HYDERABAD WIN! The Orange Army celebrates as they know they enter the big stage. Fists pumping everywhere, celebratory hugs all around, ecstasy fleeting about.

Carlos Brathwaite To Kuldeep Yadav
Safe! Brathwaite fires a yorker just outside off, Kuldeep looks to dig it out but hands it back down the track which the bowler catches. Now, an appeal is made and the umpire isn't sure whether it's a bump ball or not. Takes it upstairs and replays show the batsman is safe.
Appeal for a caught and bowled. The umpire takes it upstairs to check whether it's a bump ball or not. Piyush Chawla the man in question.
Prasidh Krishna is the last man in. He won't face the hat-trick ball.

Carlos Brathwaite To Shubman Gill OUT!
OUT! Two in two for Carlos Brathwaite and this time he sends Shubman Gill back. Game over it seems for Kolkata. Full on the pads, Gill looks to loft it cleanly over mid-wicket. Lot of height, clearly not enough distance. Down the throat of Rashid Khan once again who settles under it and gobbles it up.
Kuldeep Yadav walks out to bat.

W
Carlos Brathwaite To Shivam Mavi OUT!
OUT! The change in angle does the trick. Brathwaite pitches it up there, Mavi makes a little room and slogs it over mid-wicket. Good connection, but not enough height on it. Picks out Rashid Khan to perfection who's not going to miss that.
19.1
4
Carlos Brathwaite To Shivam Mavi
FOUR! Shivam Mavi with a boundary right off the first ball. 15 needed in 5. Full and wide outside off, he just throws everything at it and gets a thick edge. It goes down to third man and crosses the rope.
Carlos Brathwaite to bowl the final over. He has 18 runs to defend. Difficult task, but with the way Shubman Gill is playing, it just might be possible. Also, an FYI, it was at this same venue where Brathwaite had scored 4 sixes against Ben Stokes in the final over of the 2016 World T20 final. He will be bowling this time around.

Siddarth Kaul To Shivam Mavi
Chance of a run out. Direct hit and Hyderabad would have said goodbye to Shubman Gill. Kaul though, giving nothing away once more. Spears in a yorker on middle, Mavi digs it out in front of cover and both batsmen take off. Williamson charges in, takes the ball and has a shy at the striker's end, but misses.
Shivam Mavi out to bat. Now, two U-19 boys take center stage. Can the young guns produce something special?

Siddarth Kaul To Piyush Chawla OUT!
OUT! Couldn't have made a more perfect start to this vital over. Siddarth Kaul is right on the money with this full ball. Keeps it in line of the stumps. Chawla swings to go big downtown but only gets a thick edge back onto the stumps. He's gone. Hyderabad mildly celebrate, they can feel it but know there's still plenty left to do.

Dropped and FOUR! Needed that. Really needed that. Gill keeps it alive. Hammers this full delivery straight back. Bhuvneshwar sticks his hands out but it's hit too hard. It goes behind and away to the fence for a boundary. 30 to win off 12 deliveries.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Piyush Chawla
Keeps it full once again, yorker just outside leg. Chawla makes room and drives it back to Kumar, who is a bit sloppy to get low and stop it. Parries it towards mid off and concedes a single. Is understandably annoyed with himself at that.

Siddarth Kaul To Piyush Chawla
Just ahead of a length on leg, Piyush makes room and drives it on the up back down the track. Kaul quickly gets low in his followthrough, sticks his right hand out and takes some pace off it for the man at mid off to cut it off. One run added to the total.

Siddarth Kaul To Shubman Gill
Good start. Just a single. Inswinging yorker on middle and leg, Gill flicks it through the vacant spaces in the mid-wicket area for a single.
Kane Williamson hands Siddarth Kaul the ball once more. Important over coming up for both teams.
Strategic break signalled. 43 needed in 24 for Kolkata to win this game and enter the final. 4 overs for Hyderabad to join Chennai themselves. Safe to say, everything rests on this pair of Gill and Chawla, more so on the former. Potentially superb end to the game awaits.

Rashid Khan To Andre Russell OUT!
OUT! What. A. Player. What a player! Oh... brilliant! Needed a wicket, Williamson attacked and Rashid delivered. This is superb. Bowls the googly on a shorter length around off, Russell doesn't pick it up as he goes for the cut. Gets cramped for room, edges it behind to Dhawan at first slip and he takes the catch safely. This is a big step for Hyderabad towards victory. They will be entering the tail now.

Is that a dropped chance? Sure looks like it. It is. Coming in with the arm, some drift too and Russell is done in by that. Gets an inside edge onto his pads as he looks to defend and Saha behind the stumps fails to hold on to it. Can't be dropping those, especially when Russell is the man in question. Could come back to haunt them.

OUT! Did it with the bat, has been stupendous in the field and now getting the biz done with the ball. Is there anything this boy can't do? Rashid gets rid of the set Lynn. Game-changer? Most certainly could be. He fires it quicker through the air again, on the stumps, Lynn gets low to sweep and misses it to wear in on the front pad. Loud appeal and the finger goes up.

The arm ball which comes in with the angle, Karthik backs away to cut when he shouldn't and gets cramped for room. Gets an inside edge onto the stumps and that's the end of his short stay. This is only the second single digit score for the Kolkata skipper this season, what a time to get it. 67 needed off 48.

Back of a length delivery outside off, some extra bounce there as Lynn pushes at it tamely. Tries to withdraw his shot probably but it flies off the outside edge and speeds through the gap between short third man and backward point. A boundary to end a good over.

OUT! Just short of the crease! Rana flicks a full ball in front of square leg and calls for the second run in spite of slipping a bit while turning. Rashid Khan in the deep attacks the ball, picks it up and fires in a flat throw to the keeper. Saha takes the bails off quickly as Rana dives in. They appeal and it's referred upstairs. The replays find Rana just short of the crease. That little slip has cost him his wicket. Should have never gone for the second after that. Anyway, a good partnership comes to an end. 88 needed off 69 balls.
Run out appeal is referred upstairs. Is Rana short?

Rashid Khan To Chris Lynn
Not out! Lynn has gloved it. A tossed up ball on middle, Chris goes down and across to play the sweep shot but fails to middle it. It goes behind to the keeper who fails to collect it cleanly. Rashid although is quite convinced that it has hit Lynn's pads and after getting the confirmation from Saha, he asks his skipper to take the DRS. Kane Williamson signals for it and we go upstairs. The Snicko detects some part of Lynn's gloves which means the Aussie is safe. Also, it will go down as a dropped chance against Saha's name.
Appeal for an lbw by Rashid Khan. Not given. The bowler confirms with the keeper whether that hit the pads, Saha nods and Khan signals his skipper to take the DRS. Kane Williamson obliges and it has been referred upstairs. If it's pad only, the Aussie is in danger.
Rashid Khan has the ball in his hand.
Strategic break taken. A flying start from Kolkata and they are going smoothly. But their real test will be in the middle overs when Hyderabad's spinners will be in operation. That will mostly decide the winner of this contest. An important phase of the chase coming up...

Khaleel Ahmed To Nitish Rana
SIX! That has gone all the way! Into the crowd. Was nowhere near the middle of the bat. Khaleel bowls it on the shorter side around middle, Rana swivels inside the crease and tries to turn it on the leg side. But it flies off the top edge and clears backward square leg.

SIX! Up and over the big man at third man! Short in length and outside off, Rana stands back and at the last moment smashes it over third man. Carlos Brathwaite jumps near the boundary line but it goes over him. If he can't, don't think anyone can.

Siddarth Kaul To Sunil Narine OUT!
OUT! A massive breakthrough for Hyderabad! Kaul gets the wicket with a well-served knuckle ball. He lands it full around leg at 113.4 kph and Narine targets the long on stands by clearing his front leg. But it comes from the toe end of the bat and goes high up in the air. Brathwaite settles underneath it at mid on by taking a couple of steps back and grabs the skier safely. Straightaway he punches the air and roars in celebration.

Siddarth Kaul To Sunil Narine
Aerial but in the gap! A low dipping full toss on off, Narine gets forward and slices his drive towards extra cover. The fielder inside the ring dives to his left but it's well out of his reach. By the time the other fielder chases it down from the ring, they take a couple.
Siddarth Kaul is into the attack now.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Sunil Narine
FOUR! Raining boundaries from Narine's bat! 18 runs so far from this over. A shortish length ball on off, Sunil rocks back to make space for the swing of his bat and dismisses it over the bowler's head. No one in the deep in that region and it's always a boundary.

Brilliant stop by Brathwaite! Big effort from the big fella, saves three runs for his side. Too full in length and around off, it's drilled through extra cover and Carlos moves swiftly across to his left from mid off to make a stupendous stop.

Starts with a back of a length ball on off, shaping back in, Lynn punches it off his back foot to extra cover.
Time for the run chase. Towards the end, Kolkata lost a bit of momentum with the ball and would try to regain it with the bat in the Powerplay. Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine are their openers. Hyderabad are beginning with the pace of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Yusuf Pathan is the lone slip fielder.
