11.43 pm IST: KKR have staged a big comeback since our last update and their spinners are behind this revival. Sunil Narine picked up his second wicket when he cleaned up the in-form Shikhar Dhawan for 7. Shortly after, Kuldeep Yadav also got in on the act and scripted the departure of Manish Pandey via lbw for 4.  With SRH placed at 62/3 in 10 overs, the match is evenly poised. Kane Williamson is still at the crease and he is the man KKR need to remove if they really want to feel good about their chances. Click here for scores.  

11.20 pm IST: SRH have done well so far in their chase of KKR's 138. They have lost Wriddhiman Saha, who was looking good for a big score, but at 45/1 in 5 overs they will feel good about their chances. Saha was removed by Sunil Narine for 24 off 15 balls as Dinesh Karthik took a brilliant catch behind the wickets. The visitors need 94 runs off 90 balls to win their third successive game and at this stage they will definitely back themselves.  Click here for scores. 

10.43 pm IST: SRH bowl KKR out for 138 off the last ball of the innings bowled by medium pacer Siddarth Kaul. Hyderabad proved once again why many consider them the best bowling unit in IPL 2018. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is at the centre of it all with figures of 3/26. Aussie Billy Stanlake and Bangladeshi Shakib Al Hasan also played their part with figures of 2/21 each. For KKR, after Chris Lynn's 49, captain Dinesh Karthik tried his best to bring the innings back on track with a 27-ball 29 but due to a lack of support at the other end, he also got desperate and fell to Bhuvneshwar shortly after hitting him for a six. Looking at Hyderabad's batting resources, this should not be a tough target. But then it's Kolkata. Anything can happen here. Click here for scores.    

10.17 pm IST: Under-19 star Shubman Gill has joined Dinesh Karthik at the crease. Gill played a big role in India's Under-19 World Cup triumph in New Zealand earlier this year. This is his first match in the IPL. Big occasion for the youngster from Punjab. A lot of people think he is India material. This is a big opportunity for him to prove he is. And he has just the right person at the other end, captain cool Dinesh Karthik. KKR 106/5 in 15 overs. Click here for scores.   

10 pm IST: Bangladesh allrounder Shakib Al Hasan is really turning it around for SRH. He has taken the wickets of the dangerous Sunil Narine (9) and Chris Lynn (49 off 34 balls) in quick succession. KKR are now in a big spot of bother, especially with the wicket of Lynn who was looking good for a big score. Andre Russell walks in to join captain Dinesh Karthik. In the last match, both Russell and Karthik had a good partnership against CSK. They will be looking to do the same. KKR 90/4 in 13 overs. Click here for scores.

We will be back as and when play resumes.  

8.28 pm IST: SRH have started well after electing to bowl at Eden Gardens. The returning Bhuvneshwar Kumar removes Robin Uthappa for 3 in his second over.
