So that's it from us for this game. It was a long wait but as long as we had a result, nobody would have minded it. Kolkata will be relieved with the win. They now face Mumbai at this very same ground on May 19th at 2000 local (1430 GMT). We look forward to your company for it. Until then, goodbye and take care!

Man of the Match, Nathan Coulter-Nile says that his head is a bit better now. Informs that sleep was the cure for him and now he is probably over the headaches. Mentions that the Kolkata pitch had much more pace and bounce compared to this wicket. Reckons that David Warner's wicket was a crucial one as he could change the course of the game. Says that they were a bit itchy during the rain break but confident as well to chase down any total. Ends by saying that he is looking forward to the Mumbai game after a good sleep.

!

Kolkata skipper, Gautam Gambhir says that the credit goes to the bowlers. Feels that they dug deep and set up the game for them. Adds that the message was to be intense on the field as it has cost them before. Credits the entire squad for playing well since last time it was Hyderabad who beat them in the Eliminator. Feels that the ball stopped a bit but came onto the bat better in the chase. He opines that teams batting first on this wicket are often targeting too many and need to target 150-160 which is par on this ground. Admits that they were nervous during the break but feels that the bowlers deserved the victory. Calls Mumbai a quality side but hopes that they can give one back to them as they do not have a good record against them.

!

Hyderabad skipper, David Warner reckons that they were 30 runs short. Feels that this was a really tough wicket to bat on and it has been a tough one throughout the season. Mentions that they did not bat well. Praises the Kolkata bowlers for bowling really well. Reckons that they came out charged up with a positive intent but they hardly had any runs to defend in the end. Informs that they played good cricket but unfortunately it was not their year this time. Ends by thanking the people in Hyderabad for coming out in huge numbers.

!

Credit MUST also go to the groundstaff. They had relaid the outfield and had installed a new system to counter the rain and it proved to be worth it today. On any other ground, after a 2-hour rain break, you normally don't see games happening but thankfully, we got enough time for a curtailed game.

!

Hyderabad have only themselves to blame. They did not help their cause with the poor batting performance and now are knocked out despite being one of the best teams. David Warner and co should be proud of the way they fought though. They will realize that on the day which mattered the most, they faltered and were outplayed.

!

Kolkata have survived a real scare here. When it was bucketing down, it looked like they could crash out of the tournament due to the weather but the rain gods knew it would have been unfair on them and hence they relented. The men from the East had to chase down 48 in six overs and despite the early wickets, skipper Gautam Gambhir played sensibly to see his team over the line.

Bipul Sharma to Ishank Jaggi

KOLKATA WIN! Short outside off, Jaggi camps back and goes for the glory shot. He does not hit it well and gets it towards the mid-wicket region for a single. There is a shy at the bowler's end but no harm done. That's it. Gambhir has seen his side through and KOLKATA WIN BY 7 WICKETS (DLS METHOD).

Down the leg side, Gambhir shuffles across and clips it through the backward square leg region for an easy single. Scores level.

Warner turns to Bipul Sharma! Hyderabad have not bowled well at all. Kolkata only need 2 more runs in 6 balls.
