11.35pm What a night. Jos Buttler came back to form, Sanju Samson batted long enough, Yuzvendra Chahal was sensational, and yet the Player of the Match is a batter who faced seven balls for the side that miraculously won in the end. RR looked deflated and crestfallen after the defeat. It is going to be a big test for emotions for RR in how they come back from here. To not make the playoffs after the start they had to the season will haunt them for years. Some of their tactics have been weird all season. But tonight is the night of SRH, who just hung in for long enough and were good enough to cash in on the many errors of RR. They have been losing matches they should have won; for a change they have won one they should have lost. With those thoughts, we leave you, looking forward to more of this tomorrow.

11.30pm Glenn Phillips' cameo has won him the Player-of-the-Match award. He says, and this is not verbatim: It was a situation where it can go only one of two ways. At the end of the day, we are trying to do a job. On another day I might not get that. At the end of the day, that ball that I got out to was the one I should have hit the most. I was disappointed that I didn't hit the actual slot ball. Thankfully Samad finished it off, and we were also lucky with the no-ball.

11.25pm Aiden Markram says, and this is not verbatim: The emotions changed quite quickly. Nice for us to get over the line. Everyone contributed. We knew on a quick outfield like this we could catch up. Abhishek got off to a great start, Tripathi kept the momentum going, and you only need a few cameos after that. I wish I could answer how Phillips and Samad do what they did.

11.20pm So here the are two sticky choices RR made. M Ashwin was having a tough night even before he bowled his third over, and RR had plenty of options. Did they really need to bowl a third from M Ashwin? And with 41 required off the last two, most captains kill the game with their best option bowling the 19th over, but with Sandeep and McCoy around, RR went to the inexperienced Kuldip Yadav, who began to miss his yorker and Glenn Phillips hit 6, 6, 6, 4 to turn the game on its head. Then again, you might argue KKR needed 43 in the last two, GT bowled their best bowler in the 19th, and still couldn't defend 28 in the last. But those things are much rarer than the 19th over going for plenty.

11.15pm A tough interview for Samson so soon after losing such a match. Abdul Samad is happier. He says, and it is not verbatim: "We realised it was a no-ball after we had crossed so I asked Marco to come back. I was just waiting for something in my zone, and I was lucky. Both with that ball and the no-ball. Glenn Phillips was the game-changer for us."

11.12pm Sanju Samson says, and this is not verbatim: "Matches like this make IPL special. You can never never feel you have won the game until you have won it. I was confident in Sandeep, but that no-ball... They batted sensibly, and credit has to go to them the way they batted. Life is never easy playing this format in this tournament. You have to be at your best each and every game. We will come back and do it all over again.

11.09pm Wow what a turnaround. RR had this game won many times over, but they kept letting SRH back in. And SRH kept punching back. A life line for SRH, a possible knockout punch for RR. If they don't make the playoffs, RR will looks back at their tactics in this game with some anger. And the keeping of Samson

Sandeep to Abdul Samad, SIX runs

and SRH have pulled off a heist here. Hearts broken inside the RR camp. One run-out, two simple catches, and SRH have capitalised. Sandeep goes wide again, goes for the yorker, misses it by a few inches, and Samad slams it back over his head for a flat six after having shuffled across

A free hit now. Three to tie, four to win. How has it come down to this? Worried faces in the RR camp. All on Sandeep now

Sandeep to Abdul Samad, (no ball)

Sandeep finishes it off again. Oh no. Stop the celebrations. Sandeep is raising a finger to the sky, but it turns out he has overstepped. The dreaded siren goes off. He has gone really full, nearly a yorker, and Samad drills it straight down to long-off

Four for the tie, five for the win. RR must be wondering how it has come down to this

Sandeep to Jansen, 1 run

Jansen shuffles across, Sandeep missies the yorker, but the lower full toss is hit straight to deep midwicket for one

Six off two now

a low full toss, a really low full toss, dug out to long-off for one

Sandeep to Abdul Samad, 2 runs

yorker spot on, dug out, not enough power in it, and that allows them a second

Sandeep to Abdul Samad, SIX runs

and Samad proceeds to rub it in. Sandeep nearly nails the yorker outside off, Samad drills it straight down the ground. It is sailing over Root, who leaps and gets a left hand on it, but can't keep it in

19.1
2
Sandeep to Abdul Samad, 2 runs

goes for the wide yorker, gets a thick edge, McCoy runs back from short third man, gets under it, but fails to get even a hand to it. Another drop from RR

If you had told SRH they would need 17 off the last over, they would have bitten your hand off. However, they would have wanted Phillips back. Sandeep to bowl the last over. Abdul Samad and Marco Jansen. The win probability for SRH fell from 38 to 10% with Phillips' wicket. SRH have equalled the record for most sixes in an innings in Jaipur. The record was set earlier in the match. Sandeep around the wicket

Kuldip Yadav to Jansen, 2 runs

misses the yorker again, Jansen chips this low full toss over extra cover and comes back for two

Kuldip has got a life line. He needs to close this over out. Marco Jansen is the new batter

Kuldip Yadav to Phillips, OUT

Hetmyer takes a stunner. Kuldip breathes a sigh of relief. He goes length, on-pace, Phillips sees a six in it, but toe-ends it for skier. Now is the confusion. Jaiswal is running in, Hetmyer is going back, and it is Hetmyer who has called for it. over his shoulder, outstretched arms, and he takes it

Glenn Phillips c Hetmyer b Yadav 25 (7b 1x4 3x6 12m) SR: 357.14

Did Samson need to bowl Kuldip? He had overs from McCoy and Sandeep left

Kuldip Yadav to Phillips, FOUR runs

and now the luck goes with Phillips. Wide length ball, he throws his hands at it, and the outside edge goes wide of short third

Kuldip bowled a superb third over, but has been taken for three sixes in the 19th. RR slowing it down. Taking a moment to sort out plans

18.3
6
Kuldip Yadav to Phillips, SIX runs

Six. Six. Six. Kuldip goes into the pitch, slower ball, 109ks, and Phillips has pulled this clean over midwicket for the third six of the over

Now under three a ball. Samson has a chat with Kuldip

Kuldip Yadav to Phillips, SIX runs

whoa whoa whoa. The game is on. An even higher full toss. Two yorkers missed in two balls, and Phillips lofts it over wide long-off for another six

Kuldip Yadav to Phillips, SIX runs

Forty-one required off the last two, and RR just need to do the basics now. Kuldip Yadav comes back

4-0-29-4 for Chahal as he gets a bottom edge from Samad on the last ball of his quota

RR seem to have got the big over they needed to close the game out. It's over three a ball now as Abdul Samad comes in

17.5
W
Chahal to Markram, OUT

beaten on the reverse-sweep, and Im sure he will review the lbw call. he has reviewed it. To me, the only question is, did it straighten enough? Chahal fires in this legbreak, it pitches with in the stumps, beats his bat and glove, hits him in front of leg, and is hitting leg. Just straightens enough to be pitching within the stumps and be hitting the stumps

Chahal to Phillips, 2 runs

a quick slider, he chops down on it, and comes back for two as he has managed to place it wide of deep cover

Glenn Phillips now

17.2
W
Chahal to Tripathi, OUT

Chahal the man. It is such a precarious job, bowling spin. Mis-hits fly for sixes these days. He is still brave enough to slow it down again, gets some turn, gets a top edge on the slog-sweep, and Jaiswal takes a superb catch on the boundary line. Imagine he has done Tripathi in completely, but another metre, and it would still have been a six

Rahul Tripathi c Jaiswal b Chahal 47 (29b 2x4 3x6 57m) SR: 162.06
17.1
Chahal to Tripathi, no run

big ripping legbreak as he slows it down. Beats him comprehensively as he tries to sweep

RR still not in the clear here. Both sides looking for that one big over. RR want six singles, SRH want a 20-run over

that is unfortunate. Markram is actually looking to pull out if this sharp short ball when the ball hits the bat and flies over short fine for four
