Would be a big relief for the Hyderabad to finally end their losing streak in Kolkata. They've been on quite a roll so far, so this was probably their best chance, and they backed it up. The team is responding nicely with Williamson at the helm, let's see how far they go. So that's the end of our double-header today. There's another one tomorrow. Do join us for that. For now, this is Sagar Chawla signing off on behalf of Varun Dixit, Ramakrishnan, Pratyush Sinha, Nikhil Jadhav and our scorer Shashikant Singh. Goodnight!

Billy Stanlake, MoM: Nice to get out there and get a couple of wickets. My job is pretty simple, to go out there and get wickets. We thought it was going to come through nicely. It sat up a bit, sort of tennis-bouncy. Two great catches, owe Manish Pandey a couple of beers. Those were two great catches.

Williamson, HYD captain: Obviously nice to win three in a row. Best part was the improvement from the previous game. Highlight was the fielding. Bowlers have been outstanding. Nice that they've been able to do that consistently. The way they've responded in these three games has been brilliant. Suppose the guys are used to playing on very good surfaces. Wasn't a lot of turn for the spinners but they hit good lengths. KOL are a really strong team. It was nice to pull that back and chase the total down.

Dinesh Karthik, KOL captain: Basically, we wanted to send the batsmen according to the situation. When left arm spinner was bowling, we wanted Narine to go out there and express himself. I was thinking 160-170 would be a good score to defend but I don't think we batted as well as we could have. We play as we see, we try to see which bowlers are not at their best and try to go after them.

Shikhar Dhawan (Orange Cap): It feels good to get the orange cap. I did not expect that even after scoring 7 runs, I will get this. We have won third game on the trot, I am enjoying this winning streak. I started playing aggressive since the mid-way last T20 League and I have continued playing it this way in this edition, whether David is there or not I play my game. If I am hitting the ball well, I go for my shots. Today Saha was more aggressive than me. The mantra which is working for me, I am trying to keep repeating it and making it refined not just in T20 League but also also for the country. I am a firm believer in the process.

00:30 Local Time, 19:00 GMT, 00:30 IST: With the match wriggling towards another tense finish out of nowhere for HYD, Yusuf Pathan came out fired up against his former team and got them over the line with an over to spare. Again, the batting vulnerabilities of the Hyderabad came to the fore in a small chase. They made it seem a lot more arduous than it should have been, with the KOL spinners creating a wobble. But the target was too small, and the visitors too determined to register their first win here at the Eden Gardens. Captain Kane Williamson did a good job of steering the innings along after a brisk start from Saha, and then Pathan finished the job. It was the Hyderabad bowling attack though - the flagship of their franchise - which set things up again with another all-rounded display. Their bowlers have been instrumental so far in leading the team to their third straight win. Stay tuned for the presentations..

A Russell to Y Pathan, SIX, that will be it. The HYD dugout rises as Pathan pulls this short ball into the stands. HYD pull off their first win at the Eden Gardens
A Russell to Deepak Hooda, 1 run, back of a length delivery, clipped away wide of mid-wicket
A Russell to Y Pathan, 1 run, searing yorker at the stumps, great response, Pathan doesn't know where the ball is after digging it out but he runs across
A Russell to Y Pathan, FOUR, hoists this over extra-cover. Pathan's stepping up to the occasion against his former franchise. Back of length delivery outside off, he gets it close to the bottom of the bat but there's enough on the drive to clear cover
A Russell to Deepak Hooda, 1 run, full ball outside off, stretches out and drives to sweeper cover
A Russell to Deepak Hooda, no run, back of a length delivery outside off, it's an ill-advised hoick from Hooda. This is just such an ugly shot. The length wasn't there, and the fact that he had to fetch it from out wide made it worse. No contact

Andre Russell [2.0-0-26-0] is back into the attack

Still 13 needed, 2 overs left. HYD have this penchant for taking games close.

Johnson to Y Pathan, 2 runs, short of length delivery outside off, 132.6kph, flat-batted wide of long-off. They come back for two

Mid-off goes back

Johnson to Y Pathan, FOUR, Pathan kills the crowd's enthusiasm, crashes this full ball through extra cover. What a hit. He nailed this drive to the fence
Johnson to Y Pathan, wide, bangs it in very short, the ball sails over Pathan's head. Pretty easy call for a wide

Rousing chants of "KOL KOL"

Johnson to Y Pathan, no run, back of a length delivery on middle, clipped to the right of Russell at short mid-wicket who pounces on the ball
Johnson to Y Pathan, no run, good length ball on off, defended to mid-off

Yusuf Pathan, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Johnson to Williamson, out Caught by A Russell!! Williamson flicks this straight into the hands of square leg, what a soft dismissal! He immediately throws his head back, not able to believe what he's just done. Good length ball on leg-stump, and this is a loose shot from the captain. Just so lacklustre. This could get interesting. Williamson c A Russell b Johnson 50(44) [4s-4 6s-1]

Johnson to Williamson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Johnson to Deepak Hooda, 1 run, good length ball across off, 133kph, worked through square leg

Mitchell Johnson [2.0-0-22-0] is back into the attack

They just have pacers left now. Unless DK goes for Rana which I highly doubt

Narine to Deepak Hooda, 1 run, works this down to long-on
Narine to Williamson, 1 run, another out-swinger on a good length, punched down to long-off. Brings up the fifty for Williamson. He has to finish this off for his team, lest the follow the route they took against Mumbai
Narine to Deepak Hooda, 1 run, an out-swinger from Narine, Hooda cuts it through the covers
Narine to Deepak Hooda, no run, looks to work it through the on-side but gets a soft leading edge down the pitch
Narine to Deepak Hooda, no run, turning away from Hooda who defends with the turn to point
Narine to Williamson, 1 run, flat ball turning away from a back of length, Williamson punches down to long-off. Don't expect him to be flustered by the situation

Sunil Narine [3.0-0-13-2] is back into the attack

Chawla to Deepak Hooda, no run, now then, there's a review from KOL for leg-before. Hooda didn't pick a googly from Chawla and was hit on the back pad. But in real time, it looked like the impact may have been outside off. Oh wait, there's an inside edge too. So that's that

Deepak Hooda, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Time-out! Who will it be coming in next. Hooda or Pathan? They've gone for form over reputation. It's Hooda.

Chawla to Shakib, out Bowled!! Through him. Flat through the air from Chawla, zoots it through Shakib who's on the prowl down the pitch. Never allowed him to get anywhere close to the ball, cramped him up and it deflected off his pad onto middle stump. Do KOL still have hope here? Shakib b Chawla 27(21) [4s-2 6s-1]

Chawla to Shakib, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Chawla to Shakib, no run, slippery googly zipping away from a length outside off, Shakib is done in by pace as well as length as he tries to cut
Chawla to Shakib, no run, nicely held back in flight. Shakib found himself in trouble for a moment there after using his feet, but then was able to lunge towards this googly to keep it out
Chawla to Williamson, 1 run, skits down the track and drives to long-on
Chawla to Shakib, 1 run, flighted leg-break on middle and leg, driven to long-on

Piyush Chawla [3.0-0-18-0] is back into the attack

Just 27 needed in five overs. HYD should get home from here. But it was a similar situation against MUM too and they almost made a mess of that

Shivam Mavi to Shakib, 1 run, slower short of length delivery slanting down leg, Shakib helps the pull to fine leg
Shivam Mavi to Williamson, 1 run, stays low again with Williamson hopping to cut, this time he chops it back onto his pad. They rush across for the single. Mavi was just a touch slow in sprinting towards the ball, which allowed Shakib to get in comfortably before the stumps were knocked over
Shivam Mavi to Williamson, no run, stays a touch lower than Williamson expects and it sneaks under his attempted cut
Shivam Mavi to Williamson, SIX, Williamson uses the pace of Mavi, all 140kph of it, and whips the pull away over long leg. What a brilliant shot. He swivelled across, remained on the front foot while pushing his weight back and used his wrists gloriously
