11.37pm That's all we have from tonight. Apart from the bowlers, Miller and I need to ice our fingers as well. I've lost count of the number of records that were smashed today, and Sampath has put them together here, which will be updated for the end of match soon. Thanks for joining us today and counting the boundaries with us. Until tomorrow, it's goodbye and good luck from Vishal Dikshit and Andrew Miller!

It's time for the presentation:

Cummins: Feel like I was I was a batter. Against Mumbai a few weeks ago I thought it won't happen again, but it has happened again. Give me a few more years please (on if bowlers will go extinct)! It feels like you bowl an over for seven or eight feels great. I've given up trying to read the pitches. Really happy with our cricket, four wins now, the freedom with which the batters are going out to play is great and few wily bowlers doing the job as well.

Head is the Player of the Match: Had nice little bit of food [after getting subbed out], had a shower and put my feet up. The pitch played beautifully, we got feedback from the groundsmen and few local guys in the meeting, and we thought we had to take the license to go. Abhishek and I complement each other really well, he's young and fearless. I'm loving batting with him so far. I'm not sure [how to bowl to Travis Head], everyone's trying everything. It's not the prettiest thing in the world but pleased with how I struck the ball today.

Du Plessis: Proper T20 wicket. It's crazy the amount of runs scored today, a world record. I wouldn't say 270 is par, Danny. It's tough [to bowl on a day like this], we tried a few things and they weren't quite working. It's a sign of confidence in the other group. The game is moving so forward and fast these days from the batters, it's hard. We kept trying different things. There were some errors we need to address in the batting line-up, the dip after the powerplay is something we want to work on. But proud of the way the boys fought tonight till the end, and not fall like a deck of cards. From a bowling perspective it was probably too much. One thing really important is to freshen your mind, it's such a mental game. Sometimes it feels like your mind is going to explode. A little bit of uphill task for us at the moment.

Klaasen: It was unbelievable, special knock from Head to put the pressure on the bowlers. I was waiting for the bad balls and tried to go after the ball after he got out. I'm not doing a lot on off days at the moment, just trying to focus on standing still and fine-tuning some things. We've been lucky, we knew it was a good wicket and just had to bowl five good overs. Couple of our bowlers kept their cool.

11.11pm Another run-fest in this IPL, and this one has broken the record for the highest aggregate for a T20 match with a tally of 549 runs! Sunrisers first broke their own record of the highest IPL total they had scored earlier this season against Mumbai Indians, and then Markande and Cummins broke the back of the chase with quick wickets that left too much to do for the lower order. Dinesh Karthik took it kind of close with a stunning and valiant 83 off 35 but the knocks at the top from RCB and then from Karthik at No. 6 exposes the gaping hole in the middle for them, apart from their feeble bowling attack this season.

Natarajan to Karthik, OUT

tickled behind to the keeper and that's it for Karthik! He made room by backing away, the ball was well outside off and his swing only resulted in an edge for the keeper. What a knock from a man who is ready to retire, and almost kept RCB in the game right till the end

Dinesh Karthik c †Klaasen b Natarajan 83 (35b 5x4 7x6 52m) SR: 237.14

Natarajan comes around towards the end of the over

Natarajan to Karthik, FOUR runs

Karthik is doing what he wants tonight and getting away with it! Short of length outside off, pretty slow too, and he waits before steering it fine like a reverse lap, and it's gone fine for four

18.2

Natarajan to Karthik, 2 runs

tries the block hole, doesn't quite nail it, and Karthik launches it into the leg side again where Phillips almost takes an excellent catch while diving to his right before the other fielder dives behind him to keep the ball rolling towards the rope

18.1

Natarajan to Karthik, SIX runs

poor delivery and put away with disdain! On the pads, no need to move much, just connect with the flick and watch it land in the crowd

How many can Karthik get off the 58 to get? Natarajan now for his last

Bhuvneshwar to Karthik, SIX runs

a spectacular switch hit for six! Karthik has batted like a left-hand batter there. He gets into position quickly with a hop for a switch and crashes that over what was the point boundary initially. Right off the middle!

Bhuvneshwar thinks he's got Rawat lbw, having trapped him right in front, but it's not given out. Was there an edge? Sunrisers review and the replay shows an edge straightaway
