Chawla has done it, he's lofted this full delivery high in the air with a mighty straight followthrough, held the pose for a bit as it climbs high over extra cover, Paris runs back after it and dives, he even gets his hands to it, but it bursts away and trickles into the rope to settle matters
That is all from this game. Good night
Kuldeep Yadav is the Man of the Match. Kuldeep: "Did not get a chance in IPL, this time I got a chance and I am happy to be in the playing XI."
Gambhir: "Guys have taken up great responsibility. Suryakumar Yadav, unbelievable innings, great head on his shoulders, he has got a great future. Also Kuldeep Yadav. We needed someone who can complement Sunil, he is someone who can. Piyush has also bowled well. Yusuf too, we have used him cleverly, it might help him produce runs. He has been hitting the ball well. Overall we are looking good. There is a lot of hunger in the dressing room."
Yadav: "Yusuf told me to play my natural game, just go on with your shots. Initially I was thinking of giving strike to him." Says he was with Coulter-Nile at Mumbai Indians and knows the lengths he bowls at the death.
Voges: "We have had two close games. Unfortunately came out on the wrong side tonight. We missed our lengths in that over (19th). We took wickets but they took the game away from us in that over. We knew we were in the game with 150. With this line-up they keep coming at you."
So the KKR winning streak is 12 now. Thanks to Suryakumar Yadav, who blitzed an unbeaten 43 off 19. Scorchers fought till the end, but it was those two successive sixes by Yadav off Coulter-Nile in the 19th that sealed it for KKR.
a very low full toss whipped wide of deep midwicket for a single

Arafat starts the over with a wicket, slow length ball, really slow, Russell bends and has a heave, misses and has to walk back
six more, Yadav doing it for KKR, another one clears deep midwicket as he attacks a length ball, not as big as the previous one, but comfortably over the fielder and the rope

poor start to the over from Arafat, he's slanted this into the pad, Pathan has missed with his heave, it has gone clearly off the pad, significant deviation, but umpire signals wide
