Kolkata bowled first after winning the toss

Turned out to be a great decision boss.

Although Warner gave KKR a scare

Russell’s blitz was too much for Sunrisers to bear.

Hyderabad opener Bairstow was too slow

Before Vijay Shankar upped the run flow.

For Sunrisers, Yusuf Pathan failed to shine

As Russell claimed, his wicket is mine.

Lynn fell early for KKR

But, opening the batting, Rana proved a star

Uthappa kept the team in the game

However, finisher Karthik couldn’t live up to his name.

Then came Russell ‘wiper’

And in no time, Sunrisers went hyper.

Two sixes from Gill showed his will

As Shakib’s efforts were reduced to nil.
