Fourth-placed Kolkata have moved four points clear of Sunrisers, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in the final play-off spot after nine of the 14 group games, with Sunrisers' hopes now hit by three successive defeats.

Batting in the unusual position of four in the order, Warner made an unbeaten 47 off 33 balls as Sunrisers managed to get 17 runs off the final over to level the scores. This was the third time this season that a match had to be decided with a Super Over but Ferguson ended up making it a farce as he took both of SRH's wickets for just two runs in three balls. The Australian struggled to get going for most of the season before finally taking the reins in the last over bowled by Andre Russell.

However, the left-hander was bowled at the start of the Super Over by the excellent Lockie Ferguson, who then cleaned up Abdul Samad two balls later.

He has officiated two Women's ODI Matches games in 2012 as well.

Nitish Rana, who came to bat next added 46 runs with Shubman Gill for the second wicket.

When Russell (9 off 11) pulled T Natarajan straight to Shankar on the deep mid-wicket boundary, Kolkata had slipped from 87-1 to 105-4 after 15 overs.

Morgan then watched on as a hobbling Kane Williamson (29 off 19) - opening instead of Warner - and Jonny Bairstow (36) thrashed an opening stand of 58 in Sunrisers' powerplay, Williamson timing the ball sweetly despite a hamstring strain impeding his running. He then bowled out Priyam Garg and Manish Pandey, the latter with an inch ideal yorker aimed at ther base of the off stump.
