That's all from us tonight. Good night

Keemo Paul is Player of the Match Dream come true for me. Everyone asked me to enjoy the biggest league in the world, and why not. Adapted to the wicket, slower balls were gripping.

Shreyas Iyer It started to slow down and me and Rishabh decided that one of us must go on, the way we lost wickets in succession wasn't great but we got some at the back-end from Keemo Paul and Axar. It's a positive thing to carry back home (away wins), the way we bowled was exceptional.

Rabada We have our game plans and we try and stick to them, that's all we can do. Playing in India you need variation in pace, Keemo did that beautifully and our spinners bowled exceptionally well. In many ways, you do have a responsibility as an overseas players, at the end of the day I want the team's success.

Williamson I thought the first half with the ball was a pretty good effort, in the second half we tried but never got any partnerships going, we never got ahead of the game. There's never complacency in such a tournament, anyone can beat anyone.

It's been South Africa's day in the IPL. After Imran Tahir spun a web around KKR, Rabada and Morris have combined, with help from Keemo Paul - can't keep West Indians out of it - who was the pick of the bowlers. It was he who broke the threatening Warner-Bairstow stand and then tightened the noose around a misfiring SRH middle-order. Warner's fall just after fifty had much to do with the squeeze during the middle and with him went SRH's chances, as nobody other than him and Bairstow entered double figures and they succumbed to a third straight loss. Things looking ominous for them with table toppers CSK up next. All looks dandy for the Delhi Capitals after their third win on the bounce, which catapults them to second place on the table.

bowled him! The perfect yorker to complete a perfect defence of what looked like a below-par score but has proved to be more than enough as the Capitals stretch their winning streak to three and SRH go down for the third time in succession

Khan: "I was reading about Abhishek's leg cutter to Munro, is it similar to what Imad Wasim bowls especially with new ball" - Not really, says our man Karthik Krishnaswamy, explaining that Imad tries to get the ball to swing more and holds the seam differently. Meanwhile, Karthik also has an excellent dissection of Abhishek's ball in our Talking Points.

Rabada to Shankar, OUT

another one goes high up in the air and that could be the match! Short ball, Vijay Shankar has little choice but to attack, goes for the pull but with his weight forward is in position to execute it, only manages a top edge, called nice and early by the wicketkeeper

Rabada to Warner, OUT

Rabada wins the battle against Warner, but he has Keemo Paul, Amit Mishra and perhaps even Ricky Bhui to thank! Slower ball on middle, held in the surface, Warner tried to go over mid-off, who was in the circle but only had to take a couple of steps back to take and significantly dent SRH's chances
