7.56 pm We'll bring you the Man of the Match details when we have them officially, but it's going to be Dre Russ of course. Meanwhile you can hop on over to the second match of this double-header day, another high voltage clash - Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals.

7.52 pm We've had a floodlight failure. We've had the home team looking down for the count. And then we've had Dre Russ switching on Beast Mode. With Shubman Gill to provide the final garnish. Superb finish by Russell and Gill. They added 65 runs in 25 balls - Russell has 49* off 19, Gill has 18* off 10. They needed 53 to win in the last three overs and did it - that's the most anyone has scored to win in the last three overs in any IPL game. That's how remarkable this was.

Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill, SIX runs
Shubman wins it with a six What a remarkable chase by KKR. Incredible scenes at Eden. Down the track again, takes it on the full and send sit into the sightscreen. Eden goes ballistic

Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill, no run
flatter outside off, tapped back to the bowler

Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill, SIX runs
Shubman's around too, he reminds us down the track, reaches the pitch of the ball and lofts it well over long-on. Beautiful use of the feet, beautiful, clean strike

almighty heave but only gets an under-edge to deep square leg

Shakib Al Hasan to Russell, 1 wide
Russell stays put and Shakib second guesses him by firing it down leg. That will be a wide

13 needed off the final over and Shakib to bowl

Kumar to Russell, 1 run
powerfully struck again, but there is a sweeper cover so only a single. Again, it means Russell is on strike

Kumar to Russell, SIX runs
oh my this should be illegal that's a mis-hit. A total mis-hit. And it's gone over the extra cover boundary. How does he do it? Bhuvi kept it wide outside off, and Russell moved slightly across, was almost falling over but clubbed it off the toe-end of the bat. And still sent it over the fence
18.4
Kumar to Russell, no run
rare dot ball, goes wide outside off, and Russell was backing away again so doesn't connect with the swing
18.3
4
Kumar to Russell, FOUR runs
incredible this was a yorker that was perhaps off by just millimetres, but Russell power-drives it by going deep in his crease from leg stump to long-off. Mid-off's despairing dive not enough
18.2

Kumar to Russell, SIX runs
that's got some air miles on it! Russell is turning the heat on. clears his front leg and lifts this full delivery from leg stump so high over midwicket it might need a visa. Way into the crowd
18.1
4
Kumar to Russell, FOUR runs
Russell's power is something full ball on leg stump, and he gets his leg out of the way to power it through midwicket for a four

34 off 12... KKR's captain had done it with a similar equation in the Nidahas final...

end of over 1819 runs

Kaul to Russell, 1 run
full toss outside off and Russell wanted to belt the cover off the ball, but he mistimes it, and sends it to Warner at long-off, who is quick to relay the ball back. But Russel's kept strike for the next over
17.5
4
Kaul to Russell, FOUR runs
clubbed stand and delivery by Dre Russ. Back of a length and wide outside off, he threw his hands at it and sent it powering through extra cover
17.4
1
Kaul to Shubman Gill, 1 run
full ball outside off, he swings too, but gets a thick inside edge to deep midwicket
17.3
1
Kaul to Russell, 1 run
that was hit incredibly hard but straight to the man at deep midwicket. Length ball outside off and he swiped it with power, but went flat and one bounce to the fielder
17.2
6
Kaul to Russell, SIX runs
take that He's coming to the party late, but how. Low full toss now and he muscles it over the bowler's head. Bottom of the bat, but such is his power that he sends it over the rope
17.1
6
Kaul to Russell, SIX runs
boom too full, half-volley on leg stump and Russell clears his leg and swings through the line to send it soaring over deep midwicket

53 from 18, even Russell's reach might not be that much...

end of over 176 runs

Kumar to Russell, 1 run
fantastic bowling yet another yorker, and all Russell can do is jab his bat down to dig it out. Jammed into the ground hard enough that it bounces over Bhuvneshwar and they get a single
