9.40pm That's some finish from Unadkat. A hat-trick, a five-for, and 100 wickets in the IPL, all in one over. The fortress that is the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium has been breached. Pune keep rising; they go second now. The win was set up by Stokes who hammered 39 off 25 balls on a pitch where his team-mates struggled to get going. Stokes then claimed the key wickets of Warner, Dhawan, and Williamson in the chase. He wasn't done yet. He tracked down some skiers at sweeper cover to hasten Unadkat's landmark and Sunrisers' downfall. Do hang around for the presentation.

"Very good win. The boys scrapped well. We thought 150-160 would be par," Smith says. "The stronger boys could time the ball. We did well to scrap to 147 in the end. The bowlers bowled good lengths. He is doing nicely, bowling upfront he is also good. A wicket-maiden, that was good. We have played really well in the last seven or eight games."

"Well, brilliant to get through in a low-scoring game," Unadkat says. "All of us have contributed. That's how we have won matches. We are trying to keep it simple. I have the backing of Smithy, MS and Stoksy. I have been just sticking it to my strengths. I am really happy with the wickets. We are playing in Delhi next, I would like to adapt to it."

vkcharan: "Hat-trick, 5 for, 100 wkts. 3 birds in one shot"

That is all we have for you from this game. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did bringing it to you. Goodbye and good night

Unadkat to Kaul, no run, what a finish from Unadkat. A hat-trick maiden in the last over. Offcutter outside off, flat-batted to extra cover. There is a mix-up between the wickets, it's eventually a dot. Take a bow, Unadkat. He becomes only the third player after Malinga and Badree to take triple-wicket maidens in the IPL

This is the 17th hat-trick in IPL, first for RPS. Unadkat is the second bowler to take 2 five-fors in IPL. First was Faulkner.

Unadkat to Kaul, no run, wide of the crease, another slower ball, which bounces over the stumps, as the batsman plays down the wrong line

Unadkat to Kumar, OUT, four straight dots and a hat-trick in the last over. What a way to reach 100 IPL wickets. Yet another slower ball outside off, this is slightly short. Bhuvneshwar is through with his pull and splices a catch to the right of cover

Unadkat to Rashid Khan, OUT, Two in two for Unadkat. Another slower ball outside off. Rashid does not pick it. Clears his front leg and toe-ends it in the air. Unadkat himself settles under the skier

Unadkat to Bipul Sharma, OUT, Unadkat and Stokes combine for another wicket. Slower ball, good length on off, Bipul Sharma picks it and swings to leg again. He only skews it off the bottom of the bat. Gets more height as opposed to distance. Holes out to Stokes(who else?) at deep midwicket

Bipul Sharma c Stokes b Unadkat 8 (14m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Unadkat to Bipul Sharma, no run, full offcutter outside off, 119ks, the line is wide, Bipul slogs early to the leg side.... and misses

Sunrisers need 13 off the last over. Unadkat to bowl it. Over the wicket
