Kolkata Knight Riders win after super over

England World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan got the better of Trevor Bayliss – the team’s coach – after a super over in the Indian Premier League.

Morgan captained the Knight Riders, who made 163-5 off their 20 overs, before Bayliss’ Sunrisers levelled the scores.

Hyderabad made 2-2 in their super over after losing David Warner and Abdul Samad to Lockie Ferguson, before Morgan and Dinesh Karthik guided Kolkata home.

Kolkata remain fourth after their win and Hyderabad stay fifth.

The Knight Riders were without West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, who had previously been warned for his suspected bowling action.

The franchise have since appealed to the IPL’s suspect bowling action committee, and Narine has been cleared to continue bowling in the tournament.
