Based on his innings, Hyderabad managed 159 runs. For Kolkata Knight Riders, Starc picked three wickets, Varun Chakravarthy bagged two scalps whereas other bowlers picked one wicket each.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer (58*) also had a great time in the middle and played a vital hand as Kolkata chased the target comfortably inside 14 overs and reached the final of the tournament.
