Kolkata, May 25

Rashid Khan produced a superb all-round effort to guide Sunrisers Hyderabad to a 13-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the second Qualifier and take the visitors to the final of the Indian Premier League here on Friday.  Khan (34no off 10 balls) first played a late cameo to help Sunrisers overcome a wobbly start and post a challenging 174/7 and then picked 3/19 to guide his side to their second IPL final. Besides his exploits with the bat and the ball, Khan also grabbed two important catches at deep mid-wicket in the final over.

Sunrisers will now take on two-time champions Chennai Super Kings in the summit clash in Mumbai on Sunday. In pursuit of 175, KKR got off to a scintillating start, scoring 40 off 3.2 overs before Sunil Narine was caught by Carlos Brathwaite off Siddarth Kaul (2/32).  But that didn't stop Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana (22) as the duo continued to bat aggressively and picked up boundaries and sixes at will to take KKR to 81/1 after eight overs.

Just when it looked KKR were on course, four quick wickets brought Sunrisers back into the match. First Rana got run-out in the ninth over, and then a struggling Robin Uthappa was cleaned up by Rashid in the 11th over. To make matters worse for KKR, skipper Dinesh Karthik was castled by Shakib Al Hasan in the 12th over before Khan caught set batsman Lynn plumb in front of the wicket in the next over. The leggie then came back an over later to dismiss the dangerous Andre Russell as the West Indian edged a googly straight to Shikhar Dhawan at the lone slip as KKR slipped to 118/6.

The young Shubman Gill (30) kept KKR in the hunt as the hosts required 19 runs off the last over. Shivam Mavi hit Brathwaite for a boundary on the first ball before the West Indian picked up Mavi and Gill with consecutive deliveries to shut the door on the hosts. — PTI
