Fall of wickets: 1-58 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 6.1 ov), 2-75 (Jos Buttler, 8.1 ov), 3-148 (Devdutt Padikkal, 14.6 ov), 4-163 (Sanju Samson, 16.1 ov), 5-207 (Shimron Hetmyer, 19.2 ov), 6-210 (Riyan Parag, 19.6 ov)
16.1 to SV Samson, Samad runs across to his left from long-on and takes a smart catch. Back of a length and angling into middle, no room for Samson, he aims the short straighter boundary once again, but can't clear Samad this time. Splices a pull to the outfielder. 163/4
6.1 to YBK Jaiswal, Romario returns and provides SRH with the breakthrough. That's his maiden IPL wicket. Slower cutter into the pitch at 121ks, angling away from the left-handed Jaiswal. He swings into the leg side and holes out to deep square leg, where Markram, another SRH newbie, snags the catch. 58/1
8.1 to JC Buttler, Mailk spins around and belts out a big appeal for caught behind. Umpire Oxenford turns down the appeal. Williamson challenges the on-field not-out decision. Good length and skids back in from over the wicket at 148ks. Rushes Buttler into a drive. He nicks it off to the keeper. Ultra Edge detects a spike. Oxenford reverses his decision and sends back Buttler. Strong comeback from Malik. 75/2
14.6 to D Padikkal, Pace like fire! Malik finishes his shift with the wicket of Padikkal. Nice and full, veers in from round the wicket, gathers extra pace off the deck and crashes into middle stump even before Padikkal could bring his bat down. Time for another time-out.. 148/3
19.2 to SO Hetmyer, Welcome back, Natarajan! There's the trademark yorker. Dips and hits middle and leg stumps. Hetmyer slogs to the leg side and misses. 207/5
19.6 to R Parag, Parag is strangled down the leg side off the last ball. Pooran dives across to his left and smartly grabs it. Full and veering down the leg side, Parag tickles it behind. 210/6

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.45)149/7
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Kane Williamson, 1.4 ov), 2-7 (Rahul Tripathi, 3.1 ov), 3-9 (Nicholas Pooran, 4.5 ov), 4-29 (Abhishek Sharma, 8.2 ov), 5-37 (Abdul Samad, 10.2 ov), 6-78 (Romario Shepherd, 15.4 ov), 7-133 (Washington Sundar, 18.5 ov)
4.5 to N Pooran, that's plumb and Pooran's horror stay ends. Full on leg stump, and moving into middle stump. Pooran tries to have another crack at it by trying to play across the line. Misses, hits the front leg, and that is definitely crashing into middle or leg.. 9/3
18.5 to Washington Sundar, Hetmyer takes another catch and this Sundar's beautiful cameo comes to a close. Has played a big role in giving some sort of a good eventual total to Sunrisers. Another full ball, this time around middle and leg, and Sundar cannot truly get under it to clear long on. 133/7
1.4 to KS Williamson, dropped? No, taken by first slip! Williamson stands his ground though. What will the TV umpire say? This was a length ball on off that he tried to fend, but it took the outside edge. Samson dived to his right, got a glove, but the ball popped out. Padikkal at first slip dived forward, and appeared to take a catch, but looks like he has grabbed it even though the ball was awfully close to grazing the grass. If you asked me - and I must say I am not an umpire at any level - that looked like it bounced before Padikkal took it. But the TV umpires are trained to judge calls like these, and has probably made the right call even though the eye can play some tricks sometimes. 3/1
3.1 to RA Tripathi, former KKR bowler gets former KKR batter! Short of a length outside off. Hits the seam and moves away slightly. Tripathi wants to cut, but its got some extra bounce, and that's edged to Samson.. 7/2
8.2 to Abhishek Sharma, drilled to long on and Chahal gives a kiss towards Hetmyer as he pockets the catch. Tosses it up, took the pace off, and Sharma came skipping down to clear the boundary with a six. But he's too close to the ball at the time of contact, and cannot get his bat under it enough to get the elevation. Out for a 19-ball nine. 29/4
10.2 to Abdul Samad, very high, but doesn't have the distance! Full just outside off stump. Turning away as he skips down the ground to try and find a big shot. Sliced it, and long on gets under it for a simple catch. Toe end of the bat, according to the replay. 37/5
15.4 to R Shepherd, that's No. 3! His 250th T20 scalp. The stumps are shattered, and Romario must walk after an entertaining 18-ball innings. Chahal sticks with a stump to stump line, Shepherd walks across to access the leg side behind square. Misses the slog sweep, and the zing bails have lit up. Time out. 78/6
