KXIP got off to shaky start making their worst powerplay score in the entire tournament.

KXIP made a questionable decision in changing their batting order for the final.

This meant that their big hitters Maxwell and Miller had almost no time at in the middle.

You don't have to mess up your batting line up in most important match of the tournament. Poor tactics from KXIP! #PepsiIPL

The young Indians players though showed that they can also smack a few out the park and did brilliantly despite the KXIP big hitters all failing.
Bailey: 1 Maxwell: 0 Miller:1 In Ipl final 2014 for KXIP and still they manage to score 199 against KKR. Saha & Vohra <3 #PepsiIPL

It had to happen eventually, and it did in the final, Uthappa departed cheaply and put KKR on the back foot big time.

Despite the early setback KKR kept a good run-rate and took control.
#PepsiIPL Still beautiful chance for Kolkata to win.. Will they utilize it?congrats to Saha for a beautiful 100

With all their main batsmen out, KKR left it to their bowling all rounders to win the game.
Chawla and Yadav on crease. All important second last over coming up. KKR need 15 runs off 12 balls. #IPL

In the end after some nerve wrecking moments, Chawla saw KKR over the line and crowned his side IPL CHAMPIONS!
