7.40pm That is that. KKR flexed their batting muscle on a small ground and racked up 245 for 6 - their highest in IPL. Sunil Narine hit a 26-ball fifty, before Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, and Shubman Gill all struck at 200 or more to help swell the total. KL Rahul continued his excellent form, but the rest of the batting line-up fell away in the steep chase. The rapidly rising asking rate was just too much for Kings XI to overcome. KKR move to fourth with their sixth win. Thanks for tuning in. Goodbye for now

Munendra Singh: "2nd highest match aggregate in IPL history, 6th in all T20s, 3rd across all club T20s"

Ashwin: "Excellent bowling from Prasidh. Economy of under 8 on this pitch combined with a couple of wickets is just premium"

Prasidh to Sharma, FOUR runs

full and wide outside off, 144.9ks, backs away and carves a drive through cover-point. Nobody in the deep to cut that off

Prasidh to Ashwin, OUT

skiddy full ball, slanting in from over the wicket, 144ks, Ashwin looks to slog over midwicket. He misses it and is hit on the unprotected knee. Trapped in front. The umpire takes his own sweet time before raising his finger

back of a length on middle, Ashwin clears his front leg again and launches it over the wide long-on boundary. Kings XI pass 200

1lb
Russell to Tye, 1 leg bye

fuller than a good length and skids in to cramp the batsman for room and ping the pad. Ashwin strays out for a single but Tye sends him back. There's a horrible mix-up, they then go for the single. Russell swoops down on the ball, turns, and aims to effect a direct hit at the non-striker's end. He, however, loses his balance and collapses. Has he hurt his hamstring again? Given as one leg bye
