Kolkata: The Afghan sensation Rashid Khan's all-round show helped Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 13 runs to enter the VIVO IPL 2018 final where they will take on Chennai Super Kings on Sunday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have stopped Kolkata Knight Riders at 161/9 to record 13-run win in the penultimate match played at the Eden Gardens here on Friday.Rashid blasted 34 off 10 balls, took 3/19, picked two catches and effected a run-out as he single-handedly helped Sunrisers Hyderabad end their four-match losing streak.
Rashid has been the one-man army for SRH today, taking two catches, a run-out,
3/19 and the unbeaten cameo of 34 off 10 balls that helped Kane Williamson's side
notch up a great score.
At one stage, as KKR chased 175 runs for the win, they looked to be on course for
the win. And a comfortable one at that. But then Rashid Khan came into the attack
and with three pivotal wickets, turned the course of the match. For Kolkata Knight Riders, Chris Lynn hit 48 but he found no support from the middle order.(UNI)
