KKR 119/4 after 19.4 overs: Karthik finishes it off with a four. KKR win it… SRH fought hard but they just didn’t have enough runs on the board. Vital points for Morgan and Co as KKR move to 12 points with the win.

KKR 106/4 after 18 overs: WICKET! Rana goes too. Ball just went up and taken by Saha. Kolkata Knight Riders need 10 runs in 12 balls. Nitish Rana c W Saha b Holder 25(33)

KKR 93/3 after 16.3 overs: WICKET! Gill throws his wicket away. The flick flew straight to the fielder in the deep. Kaul gets the wicket. Shubman Gill c Holder b S Kaul 57(51)

KKR 92/2 after 16 overs: Rana starting to play a few shots but KKR are almost home. Kolkata Knight Riders need 24 runs in 24 balls.

KKR 84/2 after 15 overs: 53 off 44. A fine knock by Gill. He has held the innings together and is now taking the team home.

KKR 78/2 after 14 overs: One reverse hit for four by Rana off Rashid makes it a good over for KKR. Kolkata Knight Riders need 38 runs in 36 balls. They have the chase under control.

KKR 72/2 after 13 overs: Nine runs off the Malik over. Gill going up a gear – two fours to start the over and then the pressure was back on SRH.

KKR 63/2 after 12 overs: Two fours for Gill in the Holder over as KKR score 12 runs off the 12th over. The KKR innings is starting to find some momentum.

KKR 51/2 after 11 overs: A four off the last ball of Rashid’s over eases the pressure on Gill and KKR a bit. Still in control but KKR need to keep the scoreboard ticking along.

KKR 44/2 after 10 overs: Gill and Rana are stuck and Rashid isn’t even bowling. Just feels like they are digging a hole for themselves. Great bowling by SRH. Keeping the pressure on.

KKR 42/2 after 9 overs: Just two runs from the Malik over. Great pace once again, he is bringing the heat. Rana wasn’t looking comfortable in the middle.

KKR 40/2 after 8 overs: Not the start from KKR that we have become used to seeing in phase 2 and the pitch certainly has a hand in that.

KKR 38/2 after 6 overs: WICKET! Rashid comes to the party. KKR lose Tripathi – caught at short mid-wicket. Do we have a match on our hands? Tripathi c Abhishek Sharma b Rashid Khan 7(6)

KKR 36/1 after 6 overs: Rahul Tripathi opens his account with a beautiful cover drive. The shot of a man in form. Gill with another four later in the Bhuvi over. The Powerplay overs are done. 9 runs off the over.

KKR 23/1 after 4.4 overs: WICKET! Iyer falls early. Holder gets the wicket. Shot-making isn’t easy. Ball seems to be stopping off the wicket. Venkatesh Iyer c Williamson b Holder 8(14)

KKR 21/0 after 4 overs: 10 runs off the Umran Malik over but some solid pace from the bowler. He hit 150 and was consistently in the high 140s.

KKR 11/0 after 3 overs: Iyer trying to get Bhuvneshwar away but it isn’t easy. Some movement available for the seamer too.

KKR 9/0 after 2 overs: Garg put down a tough chance at short cover. Leading edge from Gill off Holder. KKR roll on.

KKR 2/0 after 1 over: KKR start their chase. Southee said it wasn’t the easiest wicket to bat on but SRH don’t have enough on board.

SRH 115/8 after 20 overs: Kaul gets a four off the last ball but SRH are nowhere near where they would have liked to be after winning the toss and elected to bat first. KKR’s bowlers were brilliant and they were backed up by good fielding too.

SRH 103/8 after 18.1 overs: WICKET! Rashid walking back now. Another batsman caught on the boundary line. Big grounds make such a difference. Rashid Khan c Venkatesh Iyer b Shivam Mavi 8(6)

SRH 95/7 after 17.2 overs: WICKET! Samad finds the fielder at long-on. Wicket for Southee. A nice little cameo but the batting struggles have been too much for SRH. Abdul Samad c Shubman Gill b Southee 25(18)

SRH 94/6 after 17 overs: Back-to-back sixes for Samad to end the Chakaravarthy over. Finally, something for SRH.

SRH 80/6 after 16.1 overs: WICKET! Holder tried to take on Chakaravarthy and it didn’t go to plan. SRH sink deeper. Holder c Venkatesh Iyer b Chakaravarthy 2(9)

SRH 80/5 after 16 overs: Just one run off the Narine over as we go into another strategic timeout.

SRH 70/5 after 14.2 overs: WICKET! Garg caught on the boundary line by Tripathi. Chakaravarthy gets the wicket. Priyam Garg c Tripathi b Chakaravarthy 21(31)

SRH 67/4 after 13 overs: A huge six for Garg in Shakib’s last over. The left-armer has done a superb job. But 10 runs off the over and SRH will want more of this.

SRH 57/4 after 12 overs: A struggle for SRH and they don’t have any experienced pros to guide them through this period.

SRH 51/4 after 10.1 overs: WICKET! SRH showing why they are sitting at the bottom. Shakib gets Abhishek stumped. Threw it wide and it didn’t turn. Abhishek Sharma st Karthik b Shakib 6(10)

SRH 51/3 after 10 overs: Another accurate, tight over by Narine. Things are going very well for SRH.

SRH 46/3 after 9 overs: Can one of the younger batters produce a miracle for SRH? The pitch seems to be okay for batting but the three wickets have pegged SRH back.

SRH 42/3 after 8 overs: Just three runs from the Narine over. KKR need to keep attacking now and not take their foot off the pedal.

SRH 38/3 after 6.5 overs: Run out! Williamson is caught out of his crease by a direct hit. Shakib with the throw. Big, big wicket! Williamson run out (Shakib) 26(21)

SRH 35/2 after 6 overs: Williamson cutting loose! 4-0-4-2-4-4!!! 18 runs from the Mavi over to end the Powerplay overs. Lovely placement and timing on all of those shots.

SRH 17/2 after 5 overs: Chakaravarthy into the attack and he is at his accurate best. Just one run from the over.

SRH 16/2 after 3.4 overs: WICKET! Mavi sends Roy back. Can’t clear the fielder at mid-on. Ball seemed to stop on the pitch. It was banged in and the shot just lacked timing. Roy c Southee b Shivam Mavi 10(13)

SRH 14/1 after 3 overs: Back-to-back fours for Roy in the Southee over to get the SRH innings up and running. If he can get stuck in, it could be a lot of fun. But Morgan should go to spin against Roy soon.

SRH 6/1 after 2 overs: KKR keeping things very steady. Roy will come at them at some point but for now, this is the start that Morgan and Co would have wanted. Solid over by Mavi.

Ball-tracking shows that the ball would have bounced over the stumps. Unlucky for Saha.

SRH 1/1 after 0.2 overs: WICKET! Southee strikes in the first over. Saha trapped LBW. The batter shaped up to play the outswinger but this one came in. A golden duck for Saha. W Saha lbw b Southee 0(1)

Teams: Still no Russell for KKR but Shakib is back in the mix.

Kolkata Knight Riders playing XI: S Gill, V Iyer, N Rana, R Tripathi, E Morgan, D Karthik, S Narine, S Al Hasan, T Southee, V Chakaravarthy, S Mavi

Sunrisers Hyderabad playing XI: J Roy, W Saha, K Williamson, P Garg, A Sharma, J Holder, A Samad, R Khan, B Kumar, U Malik, S Kaul

Toss: SRH have won the toss and they will be batting first.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of match No 49 of Indian Premier League 2021 from the Dubai International Stadium. Kolkata Knight Riders are locked in a battle for the playoff spot while Sunrisers Hyderabad were never even part of the race.

SRH just haven’t found any rhythm this season but they have the chance to play the spoiler at the fag end of the tournament. KKR, on the other hand, have turned things up a notch after the resumption and their all-guns-go approach has been fun to watch.

Still, KKR need to win this game and the margin will matter too as NRR might come into the picture. So expect them to push as hard as possible.
