Fantastic Lockie Ferguson sets up Super-Over win for KKR
In his first game this IPL, the express quick dented Sunrisers both in normal time and then the one-over shoot out
6:38pm And that is all from here! Head over to Mumbai Indians v Kings XI Punjab, where the defending champions are three down in the eighth over.
Ferguson: I think getting David Warner out especially at the start of the super over [was my favourite wicket]. It's great having Morgs at the top off the mark with his calmness and of course I had my plan which was working throughout the game. Look we'll take this win and enjoy tonight, it was a very good win on a tough wicket. It was nice to put the icing on the cake after the batsmen's effort.
Lockie Ferguson is the Man of the Match.
E Morgan: They're nice to be part of, get a glimpse into what the guys are about. For Lockie to come in and perform in both phases was outstanding. We've been sort of striving to get wins out of the last couple of games, didn't happen against Mumbai; today we were competitive. It'll all depend on a lot of match-ups, what we think are the right dynamics at the time [the batting order]. Dre went off the field, we thought he was injured. He came back on and said he could bowl. I think he showed a lot of character to get us to the Super Over after not starting well. He's a superstar player for us. Hopefully we an gather up some momentum after this.
D Karthik: Relief. It was a game we could have won comfortably. Made it a little tough for ourselves. I think it was a little hard to bat on, a little sticky, that's why you see low scores defended. I started 4, depending on how the match goes Baz [sends me out] so I'm not fussed about where I bat.
Warner: I don't know where to start. At the end of the day, we probably leaked a few too many in the middle overs and at the back end. For us it's about finishing games and we've failed the last 2-3 occasions. Not at all in two minds about bowling first. I thought this was a nice wicket that wouldn't change and to be fair it didn't. 165 was about par. We lost wickets at crucial times again. Kane had to open because he had a slight niggle with his adductor. Will need some physio work.
6:25pm A morose looking David Warner at the post-match chat there. He's been harping on about his team not being able to close off games, and it's the same story once again. Might sting more knowing he was there at the end to take control of things too. But the fact is that Lockie Ferguson was too good for them. A special spell in regulation time and then back to close it all in the Super Over. After the start in the powerplay, and Russell's injury, KKR needed something of the sort he produced today because they'd fallen a few runs short with the bat. SRH mixed their line-up around and managed to get a quick powerplay start, which was the motive - but the middle overs played out much the same. They're now four points behind KKR, who are fourth on the table. A massive wedge in the middle of the IPL table that will be difficult to plug now for the teams in the lower half of the table.
Third man, fine leg, midwicket and extra cover are in
Shubman Gill is padded up for KKR. Coming out to the middle are Morgan and Karthik. Morgan will take strike.
Rashid Khan is the designated bowler for SRH.
Lockie is immortal tonight. Five balls ago, KKR seemed to have surrendered meekly. Now, they need to score 3 off 6 to win this game.
Rashid Khan is the designated bowler for SRH.
Abdul Samad the last man for SRH
Warner is taking strike. Mid-off is inside. Square leg and fine leg too. Looks like they'll be going wide yorkers because point is back.
6:05pm I see Warner has his helmet back on. He's coming out with Bairstow. Lockie with the ball.
6:02pm You almost feel KKR have got away with that last over. It was certainly a tame end to it, looks like even Warner was winded by the end of it. But that's it now, both teams start equally. SRH will, of course, bat first. Possibly against Lockie. Don't know that yet. Big discussions in the SRH dugout about who will bat.
Looks like they've stationed a man halfway in form the straight boundary, in line with the non-striker
Russell can barely jog in the run up...
Russell over the wicket. Square leg in, fine leg in.
Into the final over it is then, and I think they crossed over so Rashid Khan will take strike against Russell, who is around the wicket with a very short run up.
Field remains the same for Samad
Now mid-off goes back. Square leg is in. As are point, third man and extra cover.
That's the end of the spell that single-handedly brought KKR into the game after the powerplay. Warner makes it into the last two overs with 30 required. Mavi will bowl the 19th over. Third man, point, extra cover and fine leg in the circle.
Just three off the over. Will Warner look to play him out and take it deep?
