During match eight of IPL 2020 in Abu Dhabi, Kolkata beat Hyderabad by seven wickets with two overs to spare. Manish Pandey's 38-ball 51 was not enough as Shubman Gill's unbeaten 70 guided the men in purple home in the chase of 143.

During the reverse fixture at the same stadium, the Knight Riders and the Sunrisers played out a super over after both teams were tied at 163 apiece. Lockie Ferguson followed up his brilliant figures of 3/15 in the main game by restricting SRH to just two in the super over, dismissing both David Warner and Abdul Samad. KKR's senior batsmen Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik then saw the team through in the end.
