11.30pm Martin Guptill teed off at the start of the chase. Shaun Marsh teed off at the back end. Bhuvneshwar - Sunrisers' gun bowler - dismissed both with knuckle balls to seal it for his side. In between Rashid Khan was just as brilliant with his googlies and fast legbreaks. The win, though, was set up fifties from the top three: Dhawan, Warner, and Williamson. Sunrisers stay third with their fifth win of the season. Kings XI slip from fifth to sixth with their fifth loss of the season.

"It was chaseable. We were sloppy with the ball and in the field. We bowled either side of the wicket," Maxwell says. "There were a few soft dismissals in isolation. If you put together it looks bad. Marsh was absolute class; he was striking the ball beautifully. He has done it for Kings XI for 10 seasons. It is a quick turnaround for us. At least we will be at home and turn up next game."

"Look we had to come out with a positive mindset," Warner says. "The wicket played fantastic. Fantastic knock from Marsh. This venue is quite hard under lights; a few basic drops. Shikhar wanted to play his natural game, it was the Shikhar we all know. Kane is a fantastic player. The way he comes in and plays so freely and so elegantly is great for the team. We tried a few change-ups, it was quite dewy, credit to Sos [Marsh]."

"It is a big league and big stage; just tying my best to learn from them [the seniors and the coaching staff]," Rashid, the Man of the Match, says. Murali has been superb for me and helping me with his experience. The confidence and the motivation comes from the coach and skipper. I want to dedicate this award to my family and my brother Jalil.

Sravan PVSR: "3rd time, a KXIP batsman came close to a century in a losing cause. Amla last year, Vohra earlier and Marsh today. Unlucky."

Shreyanshu : "That boundary from Ishant was his first in IPL. #smallcomforts"

sandip: "The other good thing about SRH is, their net Run rate is better than MI. "

That's all we have for you from this match. Thanks for tuning in. Do come back for the double-header tomorrow. Until then, goodbye and good night
