So this is it as it is too late now and I need to sleep. It was a long yet enjoyable experience to cover this game and hope that it was the same for you guys. Stay tuned for our coverage of the Qualifier 2 between KKR and MI and the grand finale thereafter. Tll then, goodnight folks!!
Kolkata almost made a hash of an easy chase but they were the better throughout the duration as a supreme bowling performance led the way for the Knight Riders. Coulter-Nile was the pick of the bowlers as Gambhir then assured that KKR won the game without any more fuss.
Man of the match - Nathan Coulter-Nile (the Sub-Air system deserves it to be honest)
GG: Credit to the bowlers who set us up for the second innings. We have lacked intensity at times but that was not the case today. All the credit to everyone. Ball was coming nicely in the second inning but teams batting first here have struggled to score big. I got nerous when it was raining as we had worked hard to reach this stage. Bowlers deserve this victory. Mumbai are a quality side but we are up for it and want to settle our record with them. 
FBB stylish player of the day - Gautam Gambhir
Yes bank maximum sixes award - David Warner
Vivo perfect catch of the match - Nathan Coulter-Nile
And it's time for the presentation ceremony!!
David Warner: We were 30 runs short. We lacked momentum. The wicket was holding up as we fell short in the first innings. We weren't good enough frankly. Overall we were good as we gained momentum as much as we can. We also found some good talent along the way. Thanks to all the supporters who came to support us in Hyderabad.
KKR's bowling won the game in a rain marred game as Sunrisers Hyderabad would feel tha they deserve not to win this game as a poor batting display saw them post a meage total on the board. A meek exit for the champions who at one stage looked like staging a comeback after Bhuvi's first over.
This is it!!!!! Kolkata have done it as a seven wicket win over defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad means they will face Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 2 on May 19 at this ground itself.
5.2 Bipul Sharma to Ishank Jaggi. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Shankar.
Rashid Khan was preferred over Bhuvi to bowl the second available over and bowled brilliantly as the Afghani was unlucky not to pick up the scalp of Gambhir.
5.1 Bipul Sharma to Gautam Gambhir. Stock length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Kumar.
