Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) roared their way back into the IPL finals for the fourth time in their history as they hammered Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Qualifier 1 to win by 8 wickets and 38 balls to spare. 

KKR were simply sensational from the first over of the game as they strangled the explosive top order of SRH and went on to bundle them for a total of 159.

Chasing, 160 runs to win, it felt like a tricky chase but an excellent start by Sunil Narine and followed up by a splendid knock by Venkatesh Iyer meant that KKR cruised to victory. 

This means that Kolkata will now go directly into the finals at Chepauk Stadium on May 26th while Hyderabad await the winner of Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Rajasthan Royals to see who they will face in Qualifier 2.
