Sunil Narine's outstanding bowling figures of 3/26 helped Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) seal a 22-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday and march into the play-offs of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sunrisers only managed 149/8 chasing a target of 172 runs. Shikhar Dhawan top scored for the visitors with a 30-ball 51 at the Eden Gardens. Besides Narine, Kuldeep Yadav picked up two crucial wickets for the home team. In pursuit of KKR's 171/6, the Sunrisers had a strong start with David Warner and Dhawan smacking a few to the advertising boards. But just when it looked like it would be Warner’s (18) day, off-spinner Narine disturbed his stumps. After the first six overs SRH were 48/1.
