YUSUF PATHAN is the MAN OF THE MATCH.

Except for Shikhar Dhawan's half century, none of the Hyderabad batsmen could stay for long in the middle. The rest of the top order tumbled to poor shots, and the middle order was strangled by a tight spin attack in the middle. Gambhir used his bowlers cleverly, and never let any batsman settle. Narine picked up three crucial wickets and was ably supported by Kuldeep Yadav who picked up two. The KKR innings tailed off at the end, but the target of 171 was still beyond the Hyderabad batsmen's reach. The action now shifts to Raipur, where Bangalore take on Delhi in the final league stage match:
...
19.6 Ankit Rajpoot to Karn Sharma, KKR WIN! 1 run, full ball on leg, lifted in front of long on.
...
19.5 Ankit Rajpoot to Barinder Sran, 1 run, full ball, played to square leg.
...
19.4 Ankit Rajpoot to Karn Sharma, 1 run, full ball on off, carved over the head of point for a single.
...
19.3 Ankit Rajpoot to Barinder Sran, low full toss, smashed to long on.
...
19.2 Ankit Rajpoot to Karn Sharma, 1 run, low full toss, sliced to deep point.
...
Sran comes in...
...
19.1 Ankit Rajpoot to Bhuvneshwar, OUT! Full ball, can't get under it completely and picks out who else, but that man, R Sathish at long off!
...
18.6 Jason Holder to Bhuvneshwar, 1 run, length ball outside off, nudged to backward point.
...
18.5 Jason Holder to Bhuvneshwar, FOUR! Makes room to a full delivery and creams this over cover for a boundary. Nice shot.
...
18.4 Jason Holder to Bhuvneshwar, no run, full ball outside off, beats the outside edge.
...
18.3 Jason Holder to Karn Sharma, 1 leg bye, nasty bouncer, crashes into the helmet, Karn regains his bearings and crosses for a quick single.
...
18.2 Jason Holder to Karn Sharma, 2 runs, full ball on leg, worked past the fielder at short fine leg.
...
18.1 Jason Holder to Karn Sharma, no run, bouncer, looks to play an upper cut, misses.
...
Holder to bowl the 19th...
...
36 needed from 12, and Bhuvneshwar walks in to give Karn Sharma company in the middle.
...
17.6 Narine to Henriques, OUT! Drags the length back and bowls it much, much slower. Henriques comes down and looks to smash it halfway across Calcutta, misses and the ball crashes into the stumps. Game over, surely.
...
17.5 Narine to Karn Sharma, 1 run, full ball, pushed to the left of Narine and they take a single.
...
17.4 Narine to Henriques, 1 run, length ball, pushed to midwicket.
...
17.3 Narine to Henriques, FOUR! Short ball, plays it very very very late, just nudges it past the keeper and it beats Ankit Rajpoot in an agonising run chase.
...
17.2 Narine to Karn Sharma, 1 run, short ball, wild spin, worked to midwicket.
...
17.1 Narine to Henriques, 1 run, gets back and flicks a short ball to square leg.
...
Narine is back...
