10:16pm That is all tonight. Thanks for joining us and see you tomorrow!

Jonny Bairstow: I was pleased, obviously my third fifty, but the consistency of getting them back-to-back is key. [Batting with Warner] It's good fun, we know what a quality player he is. I think it was his 50th fifty. That number speaks for him. Obviously the dimensions and pitches here are different from conditions we expect in India. The temperature is pretty different as well. [Defending the total] The guys held their nerve. We knew that with them picking six batters [we would be in the game].

Jonny Bairstow is the Man of the Match

Warner: Enjoyed it, but was a little nervous when Nicholas was hitting them out with four overs to get in. I played with him in Bangladesh and when he's hitting it clean, you always think hard. Rashid obviously gets shown a lot of respect, he's a world class bowler and it's nice to have him. Obviously it's disappointing and sad for Bhuvi but having him out gives others opportunities and we did okay. [Bairstow-Warner partnership] I don't know why people think there's so much hatred between the two countries! It's going well, at the moment I'm just giving him srike. Look we really enjoy batting together out there. We tried to take it to them and fortunately enough today we were able to get through the powerplay. We have a tough game against Rajasthan, it's a day game, hopefully we can put 200 on again.

Rashid Khan: That's what happens when you have a big total, the batsman goes for you and takes risks. You've to bowl your best deliveries and that's what I was doing. It's a big loss for us - Marsh and Bhuvi - right at the startof the tournament, but we have youngsters who are taking the responsibility. We have a best combination of the bowling in the last 4-5 games and the guys are doing the job. It was a simple plan for us - we defended 160 in this ground. We thought 180-185 was a good score but we got more, so the chat was to go out there and enjoy ourselves.

Rashid also paid tribute to recently deceased Afghanistan cricketer, Najeeb Tarakai, in who memory SRH wore black arm-bands today.

KL Rahul: When we lose wickets in the powerplay, it's gonna be tough, especially when we're playing only six batters. Getting Mayank run-out wasn't the ideal start, it was a disaster. It was also one of those days when everything we hit in the air went to the fielders. The last five games we struggled with our death bowling, but that was a positive today. The boys showed courage and pulled things bat, you expect them to score 230-plus after that start. Pooran is just so good to watch and he's batting really well. Did the same thing every time he got a chance last year as well. One more thing for us to stay positive about, we know that Nicky will come good. Bishnoi's shown a lot of heart, he's not been afraid whether it's the powerplay or at the back end. He's enjoyed those occasions. All our players are professionals and they understand their problems, as a captain you just put an arm around the shoulder. Everybody in this squad is talented. Sometimes it doesn't come off and you've got to be patient with them.


Khan: "Warner to opposition - you target our 5th bowler, we do a 2015 mccullum and finish game with 4 bowlers"

Nisar Ahmed: "It will be very hard for Punjab to bounce back from here in this season, they are shattered, losing close games then losing by great margins."

Irfan: "SRH Was able to avoid the 5th bowler for this game. But this could be a huge issue going considering Bhuvi is out as well. "

Giggity: "What a collapse after 10 overs, starting with Maxi's runout"

9:52pm A comprehensive win for SRH. A tame end to their batting innings, a scare after Pooran went bonkers in the middle, but at no point did KXIP have control of this chase. How do you take control of a chase with Mujeeb batting 7? They did alright at the slog-overs bowling today, but brand new cracks have come to light tonight

w
Natarajan to Arshdeep Singh, OUT
taken at...is that short mid-off? Appears so. Full at the stumps, Arshdeep has a crack at the drive, and finds Warner there who takes the catch and pumps his fists. The fist-pump of a captain who's finished the match with two fifth-bowler overs left

Sandeep Sharma to Ravi Bishnoi, no run
struck in the grille. Short ball gets too big for him as he looks to hook that. Bowler checks on him, umpire checks on him, and he's on his feet and ready to go

Sandeep Sharma to Ravi Bishnoi, FOUR runs
launches it over the bowler. Good length outside off, nicely forward and punched with conviction. Mid-off is in and long-on can't get to that

Arumugham GR: ""He thought there was an edge"? When the soft signal was not-out, it should have been based on edged-but-bump? so 3rd umpire was just checking bump, and relied on on-field for the edge? It doesnt hurt to do ultra-edge, rules have to be improved here. unnecessarily a review is gone for KXI"

14.6
w
Rashid Khan to Mohammed Shami, OUT
pinned right in front. Googly rips back in, Shami is shaping for the cut and is caught in front of middle stump. No reviews to spare either, he thought that was going down
Mohammed Shami lbw b Rashid Khan 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
14.5
w
Rashid Khan to Pooran, OUT
taken at backward point. One of the best innings this season ends softly, almost tragically, because it has been played around a shambolic chase from KXIP. Pooran looking to farm the strike and play out Rashid, wants to chop this short ball into the covers after a couple of dot balls. Thick edge and a long, laboured walk back from Pooran. Would you blame him if he felt let down?
N Pooran c Natarajan b Rashid Khan 77 (37b 5x4 7x6) SR: 208.10
14.4
Rashid Khan to Pooran, no run
googly, full on middle stump, gets forward and drives to long-off

Cameron : "What even is a bump ball?" --- A ball that's bounced before a catch was taken

14.3
Rashid Khan to Pooran, no run
googly at a length, punched to long-off
14.2
Rashid Khan to Pooran, no run
good length just outside off, punched into the covers
14.1
Rashid Khan to Pooran, no run
beaten. Good length legbreak, just outside off, and he looks to defend for the angle

Sourabh Kahalek: "Wasted review, I hope kxip don't need it in next 6 overs"

Japneet Singh K: "That is the most bizarre DRS scenario I have ever seen!"

Aditya: "Why didn't Third Umpire check the Ultra Edge during the first review itself ?" --- He thought there was an edge, his doubt was about whether it was a bump-ball

Reaud: "Yes good work here but the umpiring team, Pooran gets a chance to rehydrate and rest!! Let's go Nicky P!!!!"
