On Saturday, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defied Heinrich Klassen’s brilliant knock of 63 to win a last-ball thrilling match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Eden Gardens, Kolkata.  

KKR bowler Harshit Rana produced one of a spell to remember as he held his nerves and defended 13 runs in the last over which helped KKR win their first match in front of their home crowd. 

In the amazing turn of events, SRH owner Kavya Maran’s reaction from the start of the 19 over to the last ball went viral on social media. 

Klassen, who had already scored a brilliant half-century, hit a six on the first ball of Harshit Rana’s spell. That six forced the SRH owner Kavya Maran to jump and dance with joy. 

With Klassen’s crucial wicket, the Sunrisers owner looked a bit dejected and it also changed her emotions that resulted in KKR's nail-biting win.

Netizens didn’t take too long to flood social media with their comments on Kavya’s reaction.

‘’Learnings from the match: Never celebrate too early.” One user wrote

“Kabhi Khushi kabhi gam," wrote another user.

A third user wrote, “This is what happens when a sudden turn of events happens. A good over changes the tone of the match.”
