That's all we have for you from here. Boy, it's been an honor to do this game. What hitting from Pathan! Do join us for the match between Mohali and Delhi in the evening followed by the knock-out match between Rajasthan and Mumbai. Until then, it's goodbye and take care!
Yusuf Pathan is adjudged the Man of the Match for his brilliant batting that knocked out the Hyderabad bowlers. He starts off saying that he enjoyed hearing his name being chanted. Calls it the right time to get going. Says feels nice when the ball connects well and the ball travels. Rates this knock as his best one as he helped his team win. Knows his game and says he keeps his calm and does what the team wants off him.
Phew, what a chase, what a chase, what a chase! from Kolkata. All they needed to chase down a score of 161 in 15.2 was YUSUF PATHAN! Kolkata got a decent start with Robin playing well again. They lost a few wickets in a jiffy but that brought on Yusuf Pathan to the crease. He went after the ball right from the word go and he kept going for the big ones and everything came off for him. Hyderabad dropped him and did not help themselves as Pathan raced away to the fastest fifty in the Indian T20 League. They did get him out but by that time the game was already out of their hands with the 22-ball 72 knock from Pathan. Kolkata not only won the match but will also finish second and get a home qualifier. Boy, they look like a team to beat.
