11.33pm What an innings David Warner. What form. Single-handedly as taken Sunrisers through to the finals with an innings of pure, unadulterated quality. The pressure he was under, the faltering batsmen around him, he kept his cool and took Sunrisers home. There have been some stunning knocks this tournament but this will be tough to match. Not to take away anything from Bipul's innings eithetr. In the end, Lions were one wicket short just like how they were against AB de Villiers in the previous game. So, Sunrisers will play RCB in Sunday's final. Lions bow out. They have had a great tournament too, so a lot to take away.

David Warner is the Man of the Match: "Pretty overwhelming. I know if I could hang in there, the end we were capable of chasing it. Lot of credit to Bipul for playing the way he did. He's been bowling well, his work ethic has been fantastic. One place for a full-time spinner. A team game, for me, going there and playing the way I do. All about having one batter in a good partnership. My turn to take us to the end. I'm not going to take any credit for it. A few emotions there some silly shots and errors. If there are two batsmen out there, hard to defend. Final about not worrying about their players and executing our plans."

Suresh Raina: "They played really well, Warner batted really well. 163 was defendable. Shivil surprised them. Credit goes to Sunrisers. New team, new venue to play. Learnt a lot from Hodgey, gave me a lot of freedom to execute as captain."

Kumar to Warner, 1 run
there it is. Slower ball outside off and Warner thrashes it past point for a boundary. Sunrisers through to the finals. Warner embraces Bipul, who opened the game for Sunrisers with his cameo

Kumar to Warner, FOUR runs
four. That's the game. Full and wide outside off, Warner runs down, makes room by going inside the line and opens the face to find the gap through cover. Fist pumps from Warner

Sunrisers' to lose from here. PK will bowl. Warner on strike, what an innings he has played, certainly the best I've seen in the tournament

Bravo to Bipul Sharma, SIX runs
slower delivery on middle and leg, Bipul was waiting for that. Anticipated that. And then calmly lofted the drive way over long-on. Bipul has played the innings of his life? What a shot, calmness under pressure. Sensational.

Warner comes down to have a chat with Bipul. What will he do?

Bravo to Warner, FOUR runs
another slower ball outside off, Warner was beaten by the variation but improvised so well by adjusting his cut and got it past point. Finch cannot get across this time. Stunning batting

Bravo to Warner, 2 runs
Warner's opening partner does superbly. Low full toss outside off, Warner scythes a drive past point. Finch scurries across and sticks out one hand to save the boundary. Amazing stuff this.

Bravo to Warner, 2 runs
good batting. Superb batting. Slower ball on middle and leg, Warner just tucks the ball in the gap at wide long-on, he has placed it beautifully and timed it to perfection. Soft hands. Two easy runs. Great

Bravo to Warner, FOUR runs
slower ball outside off. Warner goes for a big heave over cover but the ball skews off the outside half and clears point. Trickles into the boundary. Lucky

The big penultimate over. Nerves. Bravo will bowl.

Kulkarni to Bipul Sharma, SIX runs
six. What s hot. My oh my. Bipul walks across, anticipating a predictable wide yorker. Bipul gets outside the line and scoops over short fine leg. Goes all the way too

Kumar to Warner, no run
yorker on off is pushed back to the bowler. Warner was out of his crease and so Praveen feigned a throw. Warner didn't budge. Praveen feigned a second throw. And then walked up to Warner chuntering away under his breath. Warner wryly smiles, may not want to fire up Warner.

Kumar to Bipul Sharma, 1 run
slower ball on off, enough cut to take the leading edge just over the bowler. Agonising stuff
16.4
2
Kumar to Bipul Sharma, 2 runs
another good yorker on off and Bipul jams the yorker towards square leg with bad timing. Able to scurry back for the second. Good over so far

Kumar to Bipul Sharma, SIX runs
superb shot. Six more. Overpitched and Bipul drills a lofted drive over long-off. Just what Sunrisers needed.
