Yes it is Warner and Bairstow to walk out for Hyderabad to bat in The Super Over. Who will bowl for Kolkata? It is Lockie Ferguson who will bowl the Super Over for Kolkata. 

Hyderabad have broken out of jail here as they were out of this game at one stage but Warner's blitz took them to the Super Over. Brilliant. Now Hyderabad will bat first in the Super Over. Who will come out for them? It definitely should be Warner and Bairstow to open. The question for Kolkata is who should bowl for them. It should be Lockie Ferguson as he was exceptional with the ball. Let's see.

What a match we are having! After two intense innings, the match has ended in a tie and there is nothing to seperate from the two sides. It has gone to the Super Over and this is the third time that we are seeing a Super Over in this League stage! This is what the Indian T20 League is all about. We are all in for a drama!

Shivam Mavi to Abdul Samad, OUT! CAUGHT! Brilliant piece of work from Lockie Ferguson and Shubman Gill! Just terrific and Kolkata are on top now! Full toss on middle, Samad lifts it towards deep mid-wicket where Ferguson takes a very good catch but then he sees he is going over so he throws it to Gill who takes it. The third umpire is called for and the replays show that it is a clean catch. 18 needed from the final over.

Is that a clean catch? The soft signal is out! It looks clean. Let's see what happens.

Pat Cummins to Abdul Samad, Short ball on middle, Samad pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a couple.

DRINKS! Hyderabad are stuttering at the moment! They have lost 5 wickets and still need 55 in 28 balls. All hopes lie on David Warner now. Kolkata have done really well to come back after the Powerplay and they are on top at the moment. If they get the wicket of Warner now, they will surely have the game in the bag. Abdul Samad is the next man in.

Sunday, funday! Double-Header day again. In the first game, Hyderabad take on Kolkata. Both teams have had rather similar fortunes so far. Hyderabad come into this game after back-to-back losses, to Rajasthan and Chennai respectively, both morale-sapping. The situation is not much different in the Kolkata camp - 2 losses on the trot, to Bangalore and Mumbai, thumping ones in fact. Change of captaincy has not had an immediate effect for Kolkata and neither for the batting fortunes of Karthik. For Hyderabad, the middle-order muddle continues. The struggles are very palpable when the top 3 do not click. So, near similar situations in both camps, a different set of problems begetting each. Both would look to cash in on each other’s lack of momentum. Hyderabad, more, as they are 2 points less than Kolkata. Interesting to see who will have their say in this.
