Fixed or Not fixed? Leaked video indicate IPL 2018 finalist

The heartbreaking loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier 1 would have hurt, as do the four consecutive losses that would certainly have got Williamson thinking. Besides his exploits with the bat and ball, Rashid grabbed two important catches at deep mid-wicket in the final over of the innings to emerge as the stand-out performer.

Sunrisers, on the other hand, stumbled into the second eliminator after Williamson inserted West Indies T20 Captain Carlos Braithwaite into the 18th over, in Braithwaite's second IPL match, only to see the bowler surrender 20 runs in the over to South Africa Captain Faf du Plessis, who ended up pacing the Super Kings with a stellar 67 not out. Then, at last, cricket viewers can stream the KKR vs. Sunrisers match live from Kolkata. The Bangladeshi all-rounder is going to up against his old teammate and that too at the ground which he had called home till last season, which is why the battle is going to have an extra edge.

Dinesh Karthik of the Kolkata Knight Riders and Kane Williamson of the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Like he was for KKR in 2014, against SRH with a 22-ball 72.

The visitors will now look to bounce back and have to quickly adjust to the conditions at Eden Gardens if they want to stop KKR from entering its third IPL final.

Rashid stepped on the gas in Prasidh Krishna's final over with two sixes that yielded 24 runs. Yadav finished with figures of two wickets for 29 runs.

SRH will draw some motivation from their first-ever win at Eden Gardens earlier in the tournament, but it should also be remembered that they were in ominous form at that point.

KKR made one change, leaving out Javon Searles and bringing back young pacer Shivam Mavi.

Saha has been woeful with the bat this season with 87 runs from 10 matches at an average of 12.42 and a shoulder injury. He got Dhawan out leg before wicket on his very first delivery while the Kiwi skipper was out caught behind as he was deceived by the spin and nicked the ball.

Kuldeep dismissed Dhawan and Williamson in the same over. Saha's pathetic knock of 35 from 27 balls finally came to an end after a brilliant stumping by Karthik.
