Scorer: @Thilak_Rama | Commentator: Hemant Brar

Bharath with the last bit: Although they are fifth on the points table, with this comfortable win SRH now have the best NRR (0.549). Might come handy when the race for the last four gets intense. That's all from our side. See you soon.

You can watch the Match Day Live with our experts here:

David Warner, the Man of the Match: Sometimes we have been a bit hesitant, against Kings [XI Punjab] the wicket was quite tough. Me and Jonny have been mixing and matching quite well. Here the wicket was two-paced. I had fantastic support, not from Australia but India as well.

Kane Williamson, the SRH captain: Very good performance all around. CSK started well with the bat but the way we performed in the back half was outstanding and the chase was superb. I don't think the wicket changed too much. Rashid has been an outstanding performer for a number of years. He was brilliant today. Warner was brilliant. A match-winning knock with Jonny.

11:35 pm Time for the presentation ceremony.

King Khan: "My MOM is Rashid Khan!"

Mustafa Moudi: "@Hemant: Please Also Mention that Warner has completed 3,000 Runs for SRH Tonight !!!" -- Yes, he has.

Bairstow: We have got a pretty good team. Fantastic effort by bowlers to restrict them to 60-65 in the last 11 overs. Pleasure to play here in front of the Orange Army. Not sure what changed but I think we were more ruthless today. It's challenging facing Rashid in the nets and keeping to him in the match.

Raina: I think we should have rotated the strike more. That's why we were 30 runs short. But a great wake up call for us. Dhoni is fit now and might play the next game. Tahir has been giving us a lot of breakthroughs and he did it today as well. Whenever you need a wicket, you throw the ball to him and he gives you a wicket.

11:20 pm Warner set it up, Bairstow finished it off. Earlier the bowlers did well to restrict CSK to just 132 after conceding 80 from the first ten. However, where is the SRH middle order? That's one thing they need to sort soon.

Sharma to Bairstow, SIX runs, and he finishes it with a six. Fuller around off, Bairstow comes forward and frees his arms to send it over long-on. And that ends SRH's three-match losing streak

Yusuf Pathan walks in, just two needed. But it's Bairstow on strike

Sandip Sinharay: ""An excellent over from Tahir, a wicket and a run from it." You are wrong. There were two runs. One run from the bat and one celebratory run from Tahir :-) "

Sharma to Hooda, OUT, once again skips down but hasn't got it right, more height on distance this time and du Plessis takes an easy catch at long-off

Sharma to Hooda, FOUR runs, use of the feet by Hooda to go over extra cover, not the best of the timings but enough on it to take it towards the boundary
