West Indies Twenty20 captain Carlos Brathwaite grabbed two wickets in the final over as his Sunrisers Hyderabad stunned Sunil Narine's Kolkata Knight Riders by 14 runs to reach tomorrow's final of the Indian Premier League. Chasing 175 for victory at Eden Gardens yesterday, KKR were coasting at 87 for one in the ninth over before suffering a collapse to end on 160 for nine from their 20 overs.
Australian opener Chris Lynn top-scored with 48 while Narine made 26. Lynn put on 40 off 20 balls for the first wicket with Narine. Lynn, who struck six fours and a pair of sixes in a measured 31-ball knock, added a further 47 for the second wicket with Nitish Rana (22) before six wickets tumbled for 58 runs to leave the innings in ruins.
KKR required 19 runs from the last over, but Brathwaite claimed Shivam Mavi to the second ball, caught at deep midwicket for six, before removing Gill off the very next delivery in a carbon copy dismissal. Brathwaite, in only his third match of the tournament, ended with two for 15 from his two overs.
