That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. A cracking game. A cracking defense of a par score. An impressive evening out for Hetmyer, Boult, Ashwin, de Kock, Chahal, Stoinis and Kuldeep Sen. See you tomorrow for more IPL action!

Presentation time.Yuzvendra Chahal is the Player of the Match: "I've been bowling well always, in the middle I had a bad patch, but my main strength is my mind and I didn't want to divert from that. (Wet ball) It was tough but it is my duty. I am ready to bowl any time. I thought to protect runs so that it will be useful later. My favourite wicket was de Kock's dismissal since he set and is a gamechanger. (Tossing it up, Badoni wicket) He had done it before, so I thought may be he will do it again. It was my intuition, which is why I went full and wide. (150 IPL wickets) Thank you, don't think too much. Next game comes up soon. No Instagram reels for me, my Mrs is making them now (laughs)."

Winning captain Sanju Samson: "Didn't know we are top of table. (Kuldeep) Depends upon how he bowled his first three overs. I thought he had done really well and had the confidence to bowl those wide yorkers. Whatever I saw in Syed Mushtaq Ali, after that Royals picked him up. He is a special talent, can be for India soon. (Boult) Great character on and off the field. After the first ball he said, 'I will change my plans.' Really funny guy to hang around with and skills are commendable. (Hetmyer) Conversations are 'have you eaten? Slept well? Are you happy?' He has great cricketing sense and reads situations well. (Ashwin retired out) We thought if some situation occurs (before the season) that if we need to use retired out, we will. It was a team decision. (Chahal) He is someone who can be given the ball from over 1 or over 20. He is the greatest legspinner India has ever seen at present. He is a great matchwinner, Ashwin's four overs are also crucial so though why not use him later in the innings."

Saurabh Mantri: "Finally, first successful target defend at Wankhede this season. RR is keep on defending their target where others are struggling."

Trent Boult: "(Around the wicket to KL Rahul) It was a late call in the morning. It was Neesham's idea. Rahul is a great player, but nice for a plan like that to come off. It is my role with the new ball to be aggressive and take wickets in the powerplay so it was a good feeling to get a couple. (Came over the wicket later) You guys have seen me bowl enough. At the top it is to pitch it up and get some movement. (Kuldeep Sen) He is a great guy, bowls with heart. Executed under pressure and will only grow from an experience like that. There are some quality fast bowling assets in our side and throughout the tournament. (Are you going to watch the over again?) I will probably watch my batting first."

8670Ronnie: "That brilliant retired out moves proves to be the masterstroke in the end ! If Ashwin had stayed, perhaps he wouldn't have been able to hit that six that Parag did and Lucknow wins the game by 2 wickets !" -- Don't forget the four overthrows!

11.38pm Thanks, Himanshu. Quite the hold from Kuldeep Sen at the end.

Here's losing captain KL Rahul: " (His wicket) I didn't see it, otherwise would've put bat on it. Was a good ball, got to give it to Boult. (Target) We have a team that is never out of the contest. We bat really deep, got options with the ball, so we kept believing even at 20 for 3. In our games, we've gotten ourselves in some trouble and also found ways to get out of it. We needed one good partnership that didn't get going. Towards the end, brilliant from Stoinis to take it that far and give us a chance to win. (Stoinis) We know how dangerous he is, so we wanted him after the 15th over. But we have options and we will try to be unpredictable and shuffle the batting order sometimes. We sent Gowtham today since it was a 160 game, 160 games can be tricky. We know how important powerplay is, so we thought Gowtham could put bowlers off. Didn't work out today. (Summary) We've done really well so far. Our death bowling has stood out. Today we couldn't execute our yorkers well but that can happen. With Shimron and Stoinis and other guys, they can really do damage at the back end if you miss your plans. We learn from it when they don't come off."

Sreshth will close out the day from here.

11.37pm Super Giants fall short by a whisker. Maybe they got it wrong with their batting order; but maybe we wouldn't be saying that had Stoinis - even from as low as No. 8 - helped them over the line.

19.6
6
Sen to Stoinis, SIX runs

Stoinis launches that over midwicket, but alas! Rajasthan Royals win by three runs. Right in the slot on off, and he heaved across the line to send that flat and furiously over the fence. It doesn't matter though

19.5
4
Sen to Stoinis, FOUR runs

no-look hoick, and takes the outside edge over short third man! Full delivery outside off, and he swung for the on side but had no control there.

19.4
Sen to Stoinis, no run

swing and a miss! This should potentially deicide the match, unless of course there aren't wides or no-balls. Again pretty full and wide of off, and Stoinis has a heave but is beaten

Two dots in a row... 14 off 3 to get.

19.3
Sen to Stoinis, no run

looks to scoop, but is hit on his front pad. Pretty full ball outside off, and Stoinis is hit outside off after shuffling across

19.2
Sen to Stoinis, no run

sends that to the man at extra cover. Full and wide of off, and he drills that straight to the man

Third man and fine leg in.

14 off 5. What can Stoinis do?

19.1
1
Sen to Avesh Khan, 1 run

full toss on middle, and he lofts that over cover. Only a single there, of course

Sen to Avesh. 15 off 6. Super Giants need Stoinis back on strike.

Prasidh to Stoinis, SIX runs

he holds the pose, and six down the ground! A low full toss - yet again - perhaps while missing his yorker, and Stoinis tears into it with high elbows and the full face of the bat

Buttler and Prasidh in a conversation again...

18.5
Prasidh to Stoinis, no run

bangs it in short on off at 140kph, and Samson and Prasidh go up for a potential caught behind as Stoinis misses his pull. Not given, and Samson reviews. Nothing there, as confirmed by UltraEdge, with the ball passing over his bat and then his right shoulder. Review lost

21 needed off 8.

18.4
Prasidh to Stoinis, no run

goes for the yorker, and it's a full toss on off. Pushed to long-on, and they don't run for him to keep strike

How will Prasidh come back now?

18.3
6
Prasidh to Stoinis, SIX runs

fired over the bowler's head! Another low full toss on middle, and Stoinis has his front leg out of the way to help swing himself. Bang for six down the ground

Bimal: "An Englishman and a Kiwi tips to take out an Aussie! "

18.2
2
Prasidh to Stoinis, 2 runs

low full toss on middle, and swung away to deep midwicket. The throw arrived at the bowler's end, as Prasidh even whipped the bails off while Avesh seemed well in. But the umpires goes upstairs, and it is not out

Boult and Buttler in a chat with Prasidh

18.1
4
Prasidh to Stoinis, FOUR runs

clips behind the wicket for four! Walks across off very early, and ended up exposing all three stumps. Fullish ball on middle, and he clips away from his body. Beats short fine leg to his right by a fair margin

Mohd Irshad: "There Samson simply gave up on umpire, and went directly for review."

18.1
1w
Prasidh to Stoinis, 1 wide

wide to begin. Too full and wide of off, and left alone

34 off 12. Stoinis the only hope for Super Giants. And here comes Prasidh.

Chahal to Avesh Khan, SIX runs

has he been practicing swinging his bat? Nails that slog over deep midwicket after going down on his knee to that tossed up ball on middle and off. Chahal is hurt, and shakes his head

Avesh the new batter

Anil Kapur: "The umpire has had a couple of bad balls there. No way a wide, and misses a plumb lbw..."

17.5
W
Chahal to Chameera, OUT

animated appeal for leg before, but turned down. And Samson reviews. A yorker length ball on middle and leg, after being tossed up. He had his front leg out of the way, and missed the ball while trying to jam. There is no inside edge there as well. And replays show that would hit the base of middle stump

Dushmantha Chameera lbw b Chahal 13 (7b 2x4 0x6 15m) SR: 185.71
17.5
1w
Chahal to Chameera, 1 wide

more turn for Chahal. Called wide... and Chahal has a chat with the umpire. Full and tossed up outside off, and turning away as he misses his sweep. Harsh call

17.4
Chahal to Chameera, no run

chipped back to the bowler on the bounce! Fuller on middle, and tucked back

17.4
1w
Chahal to Chameera, 1 wide

and again, but this is wide. Short and wide of off, and spins away well. He cuts, but misses

17.3
1
Chahal to Stoinis, 1 run

sharp turn away from the batter. Short and outside off, and turning away further. Slashed to deep point away from hid body

17.2
Chahal to Stoinis, no run

pretty full and wide of off. Slashed to extra cover, as he doesn't find the gap

Change of ball now... Maybe because that one was lost.

Sonal ST: "Incidentally, RR scored 50 off the last 3...same as reqd. rate now"
