Piyush Chawla may not have made the 94 runs that Manish Pandey did in Kolkata's daunting chase of 200 in the final but his six off the last ball of the 19th over and then a boundary to win it for KKR was an epic moment for the team.
Robin Uthappa was the first man to come down running from the dugout and he took Piyush Chawla down after giving him a huge hug. The KKR team followed and huddled onto the ground into a glorious celebration.
Even team co-owner- actor Shah Rukh Khan - was seen partying in the stands. (PTI image)

Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner exchanged his jersey with the Punjab one to offer them respect of being 'true champions' during this year's IPL. However, his celebrations did not stop and he was not as sacrificing as the 'Veer' in Veer Zaara.
Shah Rukh dedicated KKR's second IPL triumph in three years to his youngest son AbRam and said that there was a big celebration in Kolkata to follow after the one at the ground.
Kolkata beat Punjab by three wickets in the title clash to register a record nine IPL wins on the trot. It was a win that was good enough to bring them their second title. (PTI image)
