Shivam Mavi (6) hit a four off Carlos Brathwaite before picking out Rashid at deep midwicket. In the next ball, Rashid was in the thick of things again, taking Gill's catch to end their fight as KKR finished on 161/9 in 20 overs. Rashid first smashed a whirlwind 10-ball 34 to pull SunRisers out of a hole and propel them to 174/7 before returning spectacular figures of 3/19 in four overs as the Kane Williamson-led franchise made their second IPL final.

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

Fuller in length outside off, Kuldeep fails to make connection.

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.
