CSK still manage to stay on third, while SRH rise to fifth. As many as five teams are in the middle with four points. Who will break out of the mid-table logjam first? Tomorrow, RCB have a chance to join the middle with four points, while RR have a chance to go clear on the top. Do join us tomorrow for an exciting clash. Till the next time, take care, aficionados! Ciao.

11:05pm Time for the presentation

Pat Cummins, SRH captain: "Different soil, slowed up as the game went on. Stil a fantastic game. We have got plenty of fast bowlers. Shivam was hitting the spinners. So we took a chance with the fast bowlers bowling cutters. [Abhishek Sharma] I would not be wanting to be bowling to him. The crowd is crazy tonight, especially when MS walked out. We love playing here, home conditions."

Abhishek Sharma, Player of the Match: "In the bowling we felt it was a slow wicket. So we wanted to take the powerplay on. We had a chance to prepare well before the IPL. We knew it will be slow but not if we take on the bowler. Because it would be difficult for the bowler as well. Big scores matter, but I went with the flow today. Hopefully I will get out last next time. It is all the hardwork i have put before this. Special thanks to my dad, Yuvi paaji and Brian Lara."

10:49pm One-way traffic in Hyderabad tonight. But CSK did not leave it without a fight. Given the start SRH had, they could have well romped home earlier. Head and Abhishek are turning out to be some pairing. They never let the opposition in, unless they commit a mistake. Tonight was also something similar. Head was offered a life in the first over and then CSK were senton a leather hunt. SRH romped to 78 for 1 in the powerplay in the chase. And you almost knew that was the game.

Ruturaj Gaikwad, CSK captain: "It was a slow pitch. At the back end they bowled well. We couldn't capitalise in the last five overs. We were in a good situation halfway but they bowled well at the back. Black soil pitch, so we expected the slowness. As the ball got older, it got slower. They used the conditions well - big boundary one end. We did not bowl well in the powerplay but did well to drag the game. 170-175 is par, if we would have had a good powerplay with the ball, we could have had the game. There was slight dew at the later stage. Moeen was spinning the ball in the 15th-16th over, so not much of a difference."

Aiden Markram: "Not too bad, but not like it was against Mumbai. When we bowled, the first ten overs or so, it was coming on alright but got tougher. So we took on in the first ten and were in a good position later. I don't want to think too much, probably see-ball, hit-ball. That is encouraged by the team management and Patty [Pat Cummins]. When you get in, the batter that is in needs to value the position. The Impact Player has freed batters."

Rajkumar Lingav: "Klassen finishes without hitting a Six!!! "

Nishant: "SRH wasted a great opportunity to improve their NRR. The middle period they went into a shell unnecessarily! No RR pressure, no wickets pressure " Wasn't a very easy surface to hit through and through, and that reflected.

Deshpande to Klaasen, no run

Clubbed back and dropped. Very full and just outside off, Klaasen powers it back. Too quick for Deshpande to hold on to in his follow-through

Naman: "Had CSK got to that 175 mark..We would have been having a really close contest today..Timid batting in PP and poor batting at death costed them the match."

Deshpande to Klaasen, 2 byes

Oopsy! Slower one well wide outside off, Klaasen is foxed. It lands short of Dhoni again. A bad bounce for him and it turned past him. Deep third does well to get around and prevent the boundary

SRH have scored 73 between the 7th and the 17th over. CSK managed 81 in the same period, George Binoy tells me. So SRH have been slower in the period but they were top notch in the powerplay, which puts them ahead in the game right now. Here's Deshpande

Junaid Anwar: "These types of matches are ideal to improve your NRR,don't know what SRH thinking here is." They tried and lost a few wickets

Nitish Kumar Reddy is in with SRH needing 25 off 26. And they take the timeout. Reddy had a good domestic season, and expressed wants to be like Hardik Pandya and Ben Stokes. Leg slip in place

Charlie : "SRH = Swept Reverse Hyderabad. " Ummm... no

Moeen Ali to Shahbaz Ahmed, OUT

Moeen and Dhoni appeal for lbw. You could almost not hear it. And next scene, they signal for DRS. Tossed up full on middle and leg, Shahbaz goes for the reverse sweep. Looks to have missed it. Did it pitch in line? Did it miss the bat? Replays taking time to load. No bat involved. And three reds again! Moeen strikes twice in two overs. Shahbaz looked unusually jittery this over
