Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Kane Williamson, 0.4 ov), 2-16 (Shikhar Dhawan, 2.2 ov), 3-27 (Wriddhiman Saha, 4.5 ov), 4-79 (Shakib Al Hasan, 13.4 ov), 5-128 (Manish Pandey, 19.4 ov), 6-132 (Mohammad Nabi, 19.6 ov)
0.4 to KS Williamson, bounced out! Because Williamson isn't prepared for it to kick up off the pitch as it does. He sees the ball pitching short, believes there is enough room on offer for the pull, goes through with the shot, but only splices it to mid-off. Ashwin takes a simple catch. Kings XI draw first blood.. 1/1
2.2 to S Dhawan, special bowling! It's bounce again, only this time it happens with the ball moving away from the batsman. Dhawan is squared up. He needs to play, but he's not sure how to. Ends up poking the bat out and offers the outside edge. Karun Nair at slip dives forward and takes a lovely catch.. 16/2
4.5 to WP Saha, taken at midwicket! Rajpoot is winning this on his own! Meanwhile, Saha, the experienced Saha, the man who should have dropped anchor after the openers fell, goes for an ugly slog and gets a top edge. Sunrisers fans, look away.. 27/3
19.4 to MK Pandey, the perfect yorker! It starts from wide of the crease, hones in on middle and leg, takes a detour off the front pad and knocks over middle. Top stuff from the uncapped fast bowler, who now has four wickets in the game. 128/5
19.6 to Mohammad Nabi, five-for, that's his career-best figures, and the best this season as well. Great work from Rajpoot, going full, going straight, giving very little leverage for the batsman. Nabi tries his best to launch it down the ground, but it only carries to long-off. 132/6
13.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, caught at deep midwicket! Mujeeb, who took a cricket ball to his eye, is bowling like a champion. Taking pace off the ball and preying on the pressure piling on the batsman. Shakib goes for the slog. Mistimes it badly and has to walk back. 79/4

Fall of wickets: 1-55 (KL Rahul, 7.5 ov), 2-57 (Chris Gayle, 8.2 ov), 3-77 (Mayank Agarwal, 12.1 ov), 4-82 (Karun Nair, 13.4 ov), 5-88 (Aaron Finch, 14.2 ov), 6-92 (Manoj Tiwary, 15.3 ov), 7-96 (Andrew Tye, 15.5 ov), 8-99 (Barinder Sran, 16.5 ov), 9-101 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 17.2 ov), 10-119 (Ankit Rajpoot, 19.2 ov)
15.3 to MK Tiwary, slower ball, it loops off the bat and settles in the SRH captain's hands at short midwicket. Sunrisers are breaking out of jail again. Should Bhuvneshwar Kumar worry about his place in the XI now? They're making mincemeat of a top batting line-up without him. Case in point, this special little variation, having Tiwary reach in front of him for a flick shot and making the ball kick up off the pitch to ping off the high part of the bat and into safe hands. 92/6
15.5 to AJ Tye, traps him in front, but Tye has reviewed! It's the knuckle ball - now that's a story to tell, Tye's a legend with that variation but he doesn't pick it. Swings all across the line, feet planted in the crease. Replays says there is no bat, HawkEye says it is clipping just enough of leg stump to make it umpire's call.. 96/7
8.2 to CH Gayle, can you hear the noise?! The screams of the Sunrisers. The absolute joy in the crowd. Basil Thampi is responsible for all of it. Started the season on the bench. But here he is, taking out the Bradman of T20 cricket, with an honest to goodness super dooper bouncer. It's quick. Its from around the wicket. It comes at his chest. The pull shot malfunctions. Top edge straight up and Thampi takes the catch himself somewhere around short leg. 57/2
19.2 to AS Rajpoot, Base of middle Thampi seals the game! The simplest way to knock over the tailender. Go full, go straight, watch him flop around like mad and knock the stumps over. Rajpoot goes for the scoop, so he probably expected the fuller ball, just couldn't come out the right side of the gamble. 119/10
7.5 to KL Rahul, how... what.... just... why. That just should not happen! Rahul covers the stumps. He gets a good stride forward. He looks all set to defend this good-length legbreak on off stump. Except, it finds a way past the outside edge and then clatter into sticks like it was always destined to. Plays for the googly. Done in by the legbreak. Unreal bowling from the best in the business. 55/1
13.4 to KK Nair, doesn't read the googly! Ignorance is clearly not bliss, at least if you're Karun Nair and Kings XI. The poor guy gets forward to block what he thinks is a leg break and is comfortably beaten on the inside edge. Great control of length from Rashid, suddenly pushing this one fuller, and slowing the pace too.. 82/4
17.2 to R Ashwin, backs away and toe-ends the slash meant to go over the cover and watches his opposite number settle under a simple catch on the edge of the 30-yard circle. Rashid spreads his arms and soaks in the moment. Either that, or he's saying, "yeah, this is me. Deal with it". 101/9
12.1 to MA Agarwal, long straight boundaries here, and Agarwal chooses to take them on despite not being to the pitch of this Shakib special. There's enough flight to draw the batsman forward, even out of his crease, and yet he still can't get near the ball. That little distance he has to reach forward to make contact ruins his timing. Fiftieth IPL wicket for Shakib. 77/3
14.2 to AJ Finch, taken at long-on, right on the edge of the boundary, with less than an inch leg! Pandey, you legend! Hyderabad is awake. The Kings XI are slowly falling asleep at the wheel. Finch wants another six to his name, wants to finish this off quickly, but that is a long straight boundary and even with perfect connection in the last ball, he only just cleared it. 88/5
