7.56 pm We'll bring you the Man of the Match details when we have them officially, but it's going to be Dre Russ of course. Meanwhile you can hop on over to the second match of this double-header day, another high voltage clash - Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals.

7.52 pm We've had a floodlight failure. We've had the home team looking down for the count. And then we've had Dre Russ switching on Beast Mode. With Shubman Gill to provide the final garnish. Superb finish by Russell and Gill. They added 65 runs in 25 balls - Russell has 49* off 19, Gill has 18* off 10. They needed 53 to win in the last three overs and did it - that's the most anyone has scored to win in the last three overs in any IPL game. That's how remarkable this was.

Shakib to Gill, SIX runs

Shubman wins it with a six What a remarkable chase by KKR. Incredible scenes at Eden. Down the track again, takes it on the full and send sit into the sightscreen. Eden goes ballistic

Shakib to Gill, SIX runs

Shubman's around too, he reminds us down the track, reaches the pitch of the ball and lofts it well over long-on. Beautiful use of the feet, beautiful, clean strike

Russell stays put and Shakib second guesses him by firing it down leg. That will be a wide

Bhuvneshwar to Russell, 1 run

powerfully struck again, but there is a sweeper cover so only a single. Again, it means Russell is on strike

Bhuvneshwar to Russell, SIX runs

oh my this should be illegal that's a mis-hit. A total mis-hit. And it's gone over the extra cover boundary. How does he do it? Bhuvi kept it wide outside off, and Russell moved slightly across, was almost falling over but clubbed it off the toe-end of the bat. And still sent it over the fence

18.4
Bhuvneshwar to Russell, no run

rare dot ball, goes wide outside off, and Russell was backing away again so doesn't connect with the swing

Bhuvneshwar to Russell, FOUR runs

incredible this was a yorker that was perhaps off by just millimetres, but Russell power-drives it by going deep in his crease from leg stump to long-off. Mid-off's despairing dive not enough

Bhuvneshwar to Russell, SIX runs

that's got some air miles on it! Russell is turning the heat on. clears his front leg and lifts this full delivery from leg stump so high over midwicket it might need a visa. Way into the crowd

Bhuvneshwar to Russell, FOUR runs

Russell's power is something full ball on leg stump, and he gets his leg out of the way to power it through midwicket for a four

34 off 12... KKR's captain had done it with a similar equation in the Nidahas final...
