11:59pm Well, Rashid Khan has just revealed he has five variants of the legbreak. In case you wanted to lose more sleep about this genius. Thanks for joining us for this sensational game. On behalf of Ankur and Thilak - good night!

Rashid: Thanks to the almighty. I just try my best to be positive every game, in every department. I think that was the plan [to Buttler] as I've got him early previously. So I just bowled in good areas and saw how it goes. I just tried my best to mix up my five legspinners. I realised it wasn't a wicket where there'll be too much turn. Yes, [I have] five different legspins, with different actions and grip. [On his batting] My coaches have given me a lot of confidence in the nets that I'm capable of hitting it anywhere.

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Match.

Williamson: It certainly wasn't easy. A very tough game. There are some areas we want to touch up on. I suppose [I bat] behind them. hopefully they can continue like that. We needed many parts to fire to chase near 200 and it was a good experience for us. [Rashid] against Buttler was the idea. It was great that it worked.

Warner: One thing that inspires me is the local fans. We got off to a good start. Serious innings there by Sanju. Full credit to him. We had to come out and put on a good start. He allowed himself time and the wicket got better. We didn't actually think it would be a 200 wicket. We have played on similar wickets where you bowl that hard length it gets hard. Me and Jonny have partnered really well since Kolkata. There have been a few hiccups with him trying to get off the mark, I have been hogging the strike a little bit.
We know this ground so well, we know the dimensions. Last couple of sessions there's been a breeze from behind one of the stands, tonight there wasn't.

Rahane: I think first of all, we thought 190+ was very goood. The wicket was stopping a bit and we were aiming to get 150+. Credit to Sunrisers, the momentum they got in the Powerplay. When someone like Warner bats like that, it's very less margins for the bowler. They didn't lose momentum throughout. When he got out, Vijay Shankar batted well too. [Sanju]'s been fantastic for us. We all know how talented he is. I'm sure he's also hurt but he'll go miles. Consistency is the key for him.


Shahbaz: "Rashid you beautyyyyyyyyyyyy? I have more hope on you than Pathan. Love you"

Ashok : "What a superstar this guy Rashid Khan is...Sure to rule the cricketing world in the years to come"

Amit: "The six runs on the last ball and not four runs on the last ball (of 19th over) brings a positive run rate for Sunrisers and better position in the point table "

Hk: "Watching Rashid Khan score the winning runs make me so glad.What a lad."

11:38pm Well, who'da thunk? Rahane says Samson and he were looking to get 150+ at the start, and that makes sense doesn't it? The pitch looked so two-paced until about halfway into Royals' innings. Something switched around there and it turned into a complete run fest. And when you have a pitch like that, and you have Warner at the top, you're not too badly placed. A blitzkrieg from him again and a lovely follow up from Shankar to take Sunrisers to a big win. Their highest successful run chase.

Archer to Rashid Khan, SIX runs, whips it over the square leg boundary! Oh what a shot! He hit one like this against KKR last season and repeats it. Step back into the crease, weight transfer towards point as this yorker full ball comes in at middle stump, and he uses the pace to clip it with fast wrists to seal the win with six balls to spare

Archer to Rashid Khan, FOUR runs, shot! Superb thinking under pressure from Rashid. Takes a big step back into the crease and sets up low with a low backlift. Gets a full one at off stump and creams it past extra cover

Archer to Rashid Khan, 1 wide, loses his radar! Small margins. Full and slanted down leg side. Rashid sets up for the helicopter again. Misses again

One wicket here, oh boy...
