Kolkata Knight Riders overcame defending champions Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in the Indian Premier League final in Chennai.

Mike Hussey (54), Murali Vijay (42) and Suresh Raina (73 from 38 balls) helped Chennai post 190-3 from their 20 overs.

Kolkata then lost skipper Gautam Gambhir cheaply but Manvinder Bisla (89) and Jacques Kallis (69) added 136.

Bisla's dismissal sparked a flurry of wickets but Manoj Tiwary saw them home with two balls to spare.

The Knight Riders had needed nine off the final over, bowled by West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, but Tiwary smacked two successive fours to hand his side the title and spark wild celebrations.
