WICKET! Khaleel is run out and KXIP have won the match by 12 runs. What a victory! SRH were in it right till the end, some might even say they had a clear edge. But KXIP kept their eyes on the goal and came out victors in the end.

SRH 97/3 after 15 overs (Pandey 14, Shankar 19)

Sunrisers Hyderabad need 30 runs in 30 balls. Shankar and Pandey are keeping their wits about. This is a very professional stand so far.

SRH 89/3 after 14 overs (Pandey 12, Shankar 13)

Sunrisers Hyderabad need 38 runs in 36 balls. Two lovely straight drives by Shankar and the equation is back in control. Shankar and Pandey are playing it by the ear and that is all they need to do.

SRH 79/3 after 13 overs (Pandey 11, Shankar 4)

Good over by Jordan. Just 2 off it. Builds up the pressure a little more. Still SRH need to be smart about it. Shami’s overs are bowled out and Bishnoi and Ashwin have just one over left.

SRH 77/3 after 12 overs (Pandey 10, Shankar 3)

Sunrisers Hyderabad need 50 runs in 48 balls. If SRH don’t panic, they still have this. But another few wickets could make it a very difficult job.

SRH 70/3 after 10 overs (Pandey 6, Shankar 1)

The runs are drying up in a hurry. SRH need to get a partnership going to stand a chance here.

SRH 67/3 after 8.5 overs (Pandey 2)

WICKET! Samad fails to clear the fielder at mid-off and is walking back. Wicket for Shami. Ready for a thrilling finish?

Abdul Samad c Jordan b Shami 7(5)

SRH 58/2 after 7.2 overs (Pandey 2)

WICKET! Bairstow bowled around his legs by Ashwin. Just couldn’t read the spin... looked a little lost. KXIP fighting back. Here we go!

Bairstow b Murugan Ashwin 19(20)

SRH 56/1 after 6.2 overs (Bairstow 19)

WICKET! Bishnoi strikes in his first over to send back the dangerous Warner. The ball seemed to have slid off the face of the bat and Rahul got the DRS review right. Big wicket this.

Warner c Rahul b Ravi Bishnoi 35(20) [4s-3 6s-2]

SRH 52/0 after 6 overs (Warner 31, Bairstow 19)

SRH need 79 runs from 84 balls to get to the win. Run-scoring will become a little more difficult now with the field restrictions lifted but SRH can do this in singles.

SRH 44/0 after 5 overs (Warner 31, Bairstow 11)

Warner is playing a very smart innings here. He simply has not let the pressure build. Even if a new batsman comes in to bat, he will have the time to get set because the run-rate is good.

SRH 34/0 after 4 overs (Warner 22, Bairstow 10)

The runs keep coming. Sunrisers Hyderabad need 93 runs from 96 balls. Well in control of things now but a few quick wickets can change things.

SRH 22/0 after 2 overs (Warner 18, Bairstow 2)

Warner making the most of the field restrictions. The pressure has been put right back on KXIP. Arshdeep got his length wrong a little and Warner slammed it deep into the stands.

SRH 11/0 after 1 over (Warner 10, Bairstow 0)

SRH are off to a quick start thanks to Warner. If they have a good Powerplay, it will take a lot of pressure off them.

SRH openers are out in the middle. Not the easiest pitch to bat on. Which way do you see this going?

KXIP 126/7 after 20 overs (Pooran 32, Bishnoi 0)

SRH will be very happy with their bowling performance. They have given absolutely nothing away in the back 10 and KXIP were never able to get the big over that would have helped them break the shackles.

KXIP 110/7 after 18.2 overs (Pooran 17)

RUN OUT! Murugan Ashwin is caught out of his ground by Vijay Shankar.

Murugan Ashwin run out (Shankar) 4(4)

KXIP 105/6 after 17.3 overs (Pooran 16)

WICKET! Slower bouncer from Holder does the trick. Jordan top-edged that to Khaleel.

Jordan c Khaleel Ahmed b Holder 7(12)

KXIP 94/5 after 16 overs (Pooran 10, Jordan 3)

Singles all the way. KXIP haven’t managed to find the boundary line since the seventh over and that is hurting them. The average total on this ground in the last few games has been around 160. KXIP need a miracle to get there.

KXIP 88/5 after 14.2 overs (Pooran 8)

WICKET! Hooda gone too! Superb bowling by Rashid Khan and Hooda is stumped. KXIP is deep trouble.

Hooda st Bairstow b Rashid Khan 0(2)

KXIP 85/4 after 13.4 overs (Pooran 5)

WICKET! No runs for a bit and Maxwell will do something silly. That is how the cookie has always crumbled. Sandeep gets the wicket as Maxwell finds Warner in the deep.

Maxwell c Warner b Sandeep Sharma 12(13)

KXIP 80/3 after 13 overs (Pooran 5, Maxwell 8)

Superb stuff by SRH. Natarajan with a fine over, giving nothing away and it has now been 36 balls since KXIP last hit a boundary.

KXIP 75/3 after 12 overs (Pooran 4, Maxwell 5)

SRH have KXIP in a tough situation and it will be interesting to see how Pooran and Maxwell deal with the situation.

KXIP 66/3 after 10.1 overs (Pooran 0)

WICKET! Rashid’s googly sends back Rahul. Big gap between bat and pad and gone. Two wickets in two balls for SRH.

Rahul b Rashid Khan 27(27)

KXIP 66/2 after 10 overs (Rahul 27)

WICKET! They kept throwing it wide to Gayle... away from his hitting zone and when the left-hander finally for the chance to hit it, he found the fielder in the deep.

Gayle c Warner b Holder 20(20)

KXIP 61/1 after 9 overs (Rahul 25, Gayle 18)

Rashid’s second over has much more control. KXIP get just run off it.

KXIP 59/1 after 8 overs (Rahul 25, Gayle 17)

Natarajan comes up with a good over first-up – just 4 runs off it.

KXIP 56/1 after 7 overs (Rahul 23, Gayle 15)

Rashid Khan into the attack and the first few deliveries are calmly played for singles. Then, he dropped one short and Gayle rocked back onto the back foot and pulled it away for a six.

KXIP 47/1 after 6 overs (Rahul 21, Gayle 8)

Powerplay overs are done and KXIP have done well. Gayle has coming in and he is already timing the ball well.

KXIP 37/1 after 5 overs (Rahul 20)

A six by Rahul to start off the Sandeep over and then a four to Mandeep later in the over thanks to a poor fielding effort by Samad but the over ended with a wicket. Mandeep gets only the height on that shot and is caught in the deep.

Mandeep c Rashid Khan b Sandeep Sharma 17(14)

KXIP 24/0 after 4 overs (Rahul 13, Mandeep 11)

11 runs off the Khaleel over including one lovely pull off the front foot by Rahul.

The KXIP openers have managed to get their eye in now. They will start looking for a big over soon.

KXIP 9/0 after 2 overs (Rahul 6, Mandeep 3)

KL Rahul just about managed to get back in the over. He set off for a non-existent single and Shankar hit the stump on the full. But the KXIP skipper managed to get back in just in time. And edged four were the only runs KXIP got off the Khaleel over.

7.29 pm: Mandeep Singh, who lost his dad last night, has come out to open the innings with KL Rahul for KXIP.

15 11 4

6.40 pm: Their campaign back on track with a hat-trick of wins, Kings XI Punjab will take on another resurgent team – Sunrisers Hyderabad – on Saturday in a must-win IPL game for the two well-matched sides.

Both KXIP and SRH have garnered eight points apiece after 10 games, but the Hyderabad outfit is a rung ahead in the eight-team standings, on the fifth spot by virtue of a better net run rate.

And both teams need to win their remaining four games to guarantee their place in the playoffs.
