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.

Arafat to Chawla, FOUR runs

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

Arafat to Chawla, 1 run

Chawla gets a slower length ball cutting across him, adjusts to steer it to short third man, who resists the temptation to throw at the non-striker's with Chawal no way near, and no one at the stumps to receive the throw
