Kane Williamson starred with a valiant half-century guiding Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to a 5-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Saturday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Chasing 139 run-target set by KKR, Wriddhiman Saha (24) gave a solid start to the Sunrisers. Saha was eventually dismissed in the 4th over by KKR bowler Sunil Narine. Shikhar Dhawan was the next to depart for SRH after Narine clean bowled him for 7 runs. Shakib Al Hasan was the next batsman for Sunrisers and he ably supported skipper Williamson in the run-chase. Narine returned with bowling figures of 2/17 while Piyush Chawla (1/20), Mitchell Johnson (1/30) and Kuldeep Yadav (1/23) shared a wicket each. Deepak Hooda (5) and Yusuf Pathan (17) ensured the visitors crossed the finishing line to ensure their third win in this season of the IPL. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, India pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets as SRH made the most of hour-long rain break and some excellent catching by Manish Pandey to restrict Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to 138/8 in 20 overs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Eden Gardens on Saturday. Kumar (3/26) -- returning to the team after recovering from a sore back -- was ably supported by pacer Billy Stanlake (2/21) and Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan (2/21) also taking two wickets. Highly-rated leg-spinner Rashid Khan went wicketless, leaking 31 runs. Former KKR batsman Pandey took two outstanding catches to send Nitish Rana (18; 16b 2x4 1x6) and Andre Russell (9; 5b 0x4 1x6) -- who hit a 36-ball 88 in the last game -- back in the hut as SRH bowlers reined in after skies opened up to halt play for 58 minutes when KKR were going steady at 52/1.

That's all we have for today! Earlier in the day, Delhi chased down a huge total to defeat Mumbai at the Wankhede and then Hyderabad defeated Kolkata at the Eden Gardens. So, both the teams hosting the game lost today. How often do you see that? Something that will keep you thinking. On that note, we take your leave. Do join us on Sunday for another doubleheader. First game is between Bangalore and Rajasthan at 1600 IST and then later Punjab will face Chennai at 2000 IST. Until then, goodbye and cheers!

!

Man of the Match award has been given to Billy Stanlake. He bent his back and bowled with some venom to not let the hosts off the hook. He ended with mind-blowing figures of 4-0-21-2! Shakib, Bhuvneshwar and Williamson would also have been in contention for the same but the Aussie pacer got the nod.

!

Things once again got close towards the end as both the set batsmen perished but Hooda and Pathan made sure that they don't repeat the same mistake that they committed against Mumbai in the last game. Both hung in there and safely saw their side cross the finish line with an over to spare.

!

Kolkata's other spinners then came to the fore. They not only slowed things down but also picked up a couple of wickets in the process to keep the match in the balance. The spin trio (Narine, Kuldeep and Chawla) gave away 60 runs in 12 overs and picked up 4 wickets. However, Williamson kept a cool head and took the matter in his hands. He was happy to milk singles and doubles and then stroked some boundaries to dictate terms. He got an able partner in Shakib as the duo motored along and strung 59 runs together to bring the equation down to run-a-ball.

!

Hyderabad seal their first ever win at the Eden Gardens. And what would please them even more - it's their third win on the trot this season and surely they have kicked their campaign off in a grand manner. After yet another clinical show from their bowlers, a different sight was witnessed in the run chase. It was Wriddhiman Saha who got them off to a flying start but perished soon after Narine was introduced. The West Indian struck twice inside the Powerplay to stem the run flow.

Andre Russell to Yusuf Pathan

SIX! Yusuf Pathan, the ex-Kolkata player has silenced the Eden Gardens here. Gets a hug and a pat from Russell and the customary handshakes follow. Russell with another short one on middle, Yusuf goes for the pull but gets it off the top edge. Still good enough connection to end the game with a maximum over deep backward square leg. A 5-WICKET VICTORY FOR HYDERABAD!

Andre Russell to Yusuf Pathan

FOUR! Up and over Lynn at extra cover! On a length and outside off, Pathan looks to punch it on the up. Didn't time it well but has enough to clear a leaping Chris Lynn at extra cover. More importantly for his side, it then goes to the fence. Happy faces in the Hyderabad dugout.
