Sunrisers have two more home games coming up and are setting themselves up for the playoffs. Thanks for joining us tonight. Do come back tomorrow. Until then, this is Deivarayan Muthu saying buh-bye and good night.

Warner, Man of the Match: That's one of the three we needed to win. We had to be clinical and work on the Rajasthan finish. Phenomenal innings from Miller. He batted fantastic but credit to Moises Henriques for four overs - 3 for 16. Knowing this ground, 160 was probably par. Credit to the bowlers for taking early wickets. We are playing a positive brand of cricket, we look to build momentum and make it four in a row.

Bailey: It was extraordinary. We just left a little too much for him [Miller]. We have plenty of positives in the last couple of games. We have to get our starts better. Can't fault the effort of the boys.

11:30pm: Ishant pats Miller on the helmet. Nice camaraderie. Miller played a blitzy innings, but his lusty clubs and belts came a little too late. Sunrisers have jumped ahead of RCB and caught up with RR.

Bipul Sharma nipped out the openers, Boult took down Maxi as an all too familiar Kings XI collapse loomed. David Miller then re-ignited the chase and gave the hosts a scare but he was left to do too much on his own.

RaoP: "After the 16th over - Miller 19 balls, 57 runs 1x4 and 7x6. What an innings."

Kausthub Gudipa: "SRH win by 7 runs, 6 runs and now 5 runs."
