Match – 22 KXIP VS SRH : Steady KL RAHUL help win the KXIP last over thriller against SRH

TOSS: KXIP won the & have decided to bowl first

David Warner & Jonny Bairstow opens for SRH

Mujeeb strikes straight away!

In the air and Bairstow is gone for 1, as Ravi Ashwin dives forward and takes a splendid catch. Vijay Shankar in. SRH 7/1

Halfway mark SRH 50/1

Skipper Ashwin strikes as Shankar edges it to the keeper KL Rahul for 26. SRH 56/2

Not the ideal time to give away wicket for Sun risers as Shankar was looking good for a big score today.

On the other hand Warner is playing decent. He just needs someone who can hold things on for his team.

Aaahh run-out by Ravi Ashwin!

What-a-coincidence here. Just few day before Ashwin did the Mankads out the Buttler but here Warner slaps the ball straight back to the bowler as Ashwin stops and smartly whips out the bails to end the Nabi for 12. SRH 80/3. Manish Pandey in. extremely unlucky for Nabi.

Meanwhile Warner is clubbing some sixes here! 50 for David Warner! Not as quick as you would’ve imagined. Slowest of them. SRH 104/3 after 16 overs

Cheeky shots are in as Manish Pandey uppercuts Sam Curran. This reminds me of Virender Sehwag. Just inch of short and uppercuts it easily for 4. SRH 19 overs 135/3

Shami gets Pandey for 19 as he pulls that straight to sub-fielder Karun. SRH 135/4

4,4,6 Hooda finishes off in some style as SRH ends on 150/4

Warner has also played well innings here for 70*

KXIP needs 151 runs to win

Chris Gayle & KL Rahul opens for them

That’s down the ground! No holding back for Universal Boss as he creams it out of the park off SRH skipper Bhuvi

Rashid Khan strikes as he removes Gayle for 16, he couldn’t get hold on but clips it to diving Deepak Hooda at mid-on. Mayank Agarwal in. KXIP 18/1

Halfway stage KXIP 70/1

Brilliant absolutely brilliant by KL Rahul as it seems it is just another day for him to score a ton. 50 for Kl Rahul off just 34 balls. KXIP 102/1

Equation says 49 runs required off 42 balls

Yusuf drops a sitter! As Mayank Agarwal gets to his fifty as well KXIP 126/1.

25 runs required off 22 balls

It’s a piece of cake here for KXIP

BASEBALL hit from Agarwal doesn’t hepls but gets him out!

He tried something unusual against Sandeep Sharma as he goes for fine 55. In comes David Miller. KXIP 132/2

My my Killer Miller departs!

Celebrations here for Sun risers as he goes for 1. Mandeep Singh comes in. KXIP 135/3

16 runs required off 12 balls

Not at all tough until Kl Rahul remains at the crease

Mandeep falls as well!

SRH are on a roll here. Wickets are tumbling for KXIP as mandeep goes for heive and Hooda makes no mistake. Sam Curran in. KXIP 140/4

11 runs required off last 6 balls!

Don’t go anywhere

1st ball – 2 runs by Curran

2nd ball – 2 runs by Curran

3rd ball – 1 run by Curran

6 runs required off 3 balls

4th ball – 4 runs by KL Rahul

2 runs required off 2 balls

5th ball – KL Rahul hits straight to David Warner at long-on,Sam Curran comes back for the second but drops his bat i guess even after that David Warner didn’t grab the ball properly as they comes back for second to win the KXIP by 6 wickets
