TOSS – KKR opt to bowl first.

David Warner and Johnny Bairstow opens

Johnny reviews successfully

A big appeal, an immediate decision and an even quicker review! Jonny didn’t read Chawla’s googly – though he bowls them five times in an over – and got struck on the pad while he was on the back-foot. Bairstow reviews like a man who knew he’d faintly nicked it. Snicko agrees and he lives on.

SRH 54/0 after 6 overs

SRH fans have a reason to rejoice – David Warner is back! And back like he was probably never away. He’s taken on KKR’s strength – their spin bowling – and picked runs off both Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine.

Half-century for David Warner

he got there with a six off the 31st ball he played. That’s his 37th IPL fifty!

David Warner is on beast mode

He has hit that straight to the Cameraman at long-on. So sorry Mr. Cameraman

Karthik drops a sitter of Warner from Asgardian lockie delivery

Today is a Warner’s day i guess

Johnny falls

Chawla cleaned him up. He goes for 39. Shankar comes in.

It’s a Comeback time Baby!

Good chance now, with David Warner out for a 53-ball 85.Uthappa dived forward to take a very good low catch after Andre Russell bowled a wide half-volley that the SRH opener went after.

Manish Pandey will have to wait further as Yusuf Pathan has walked out at No.4.

16 overs – 144/2

Double trouble

Andre Russell has cleaned up Yusuf Pathan! And once again Yusuf falls to a slower ball chops to stump. Manish Pandey comes to crease.

SRH 181/3 in 20 over

______________________________________________________________________________

Chase is ON!!!

Chris Lynn and Nitish Rana comes to bat.

Shakib-al-hasan takes out dangerous Lynn

He sees the batsmen charging down the track so he bowls an armball which skids through and Lynn doesn’t get proper connection and Rashid does the rest.

KKR 7/1 in 2 overs.

Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa get a move on

47/1 in 6 overs

Halfway stage -KKR 72/1 in 10overs The equation Says 112 runs required from the last 60 balls

Batman Robin is gone

Sid Kaul took the perfect route of bowling a pin point yorker after dishing a bouncer to rattle Robbie’s stump.

The Knuckle bowl gets the skipper

Karthik was trying for a big one but got foxed by a knuckle ball and ball balloons back at cover.

What a wicket!

Rashid Khan removes Nitish Rana! Oh man how much can a break can impact a batsman’s rhythm. Rashid Khan traps him leg before with a conventional leg break to dent KKR. Rana walks back for an excellent 47-ball 68.

The bit of optimism for KKR is that Rashid is done with his four overs. But, Andre Russell and Shubman Gill still have two overs of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to deal with in the final four.

The equation is 78 Runs off 36 Balls

Bhuvi doing what Bhuvi usually does! Excellent, excellent over under the circumstances. Andre Russell camped well inside the crease to deal with the yorkers but even that didn’t help. Just six runs off that over!

Andre Russell is turning the game around!

What a man, this Andre Russell!Take a bow!

He’s taken 18 off the 19 runs from Sid Kaul’s over and has now smashed Bhuvneshwar Kumar 21 runs!

The equation is 14 runs off 6 balls

Shakib offered two hit-me balls that Shubman Gill classically dispatched into the stands. And with that KKR

wins by 6 wickets
