slower ball, short and wide outside off. Left alone and that will be enough for the win
7.14pm And that is all from this game. Make sure to join Deiva Muthu in the other one, where KKR have won the toss and elected to bowl. Good night!
Jonny Bairstow: Absolutely over the moon to get us over the line. Been really close in most of the games, and haven't got through. Probably through carelessness to be honest. Pleased to get over the line. Each game we've seen after the powerplay it's gotten harder and harder. It was key to make sure we took advantage (of the powerplay). I don't really need to talk about how good Kane is. That one Moises dropped at covers, to time it like that and not get four...
Jonny Bairstow is the Player of the Match.
Warner: Very pleasing, the bowlers did a fantastic job to reduce them. The game plan of having them there is to anchor the game. He rotates the strike so well. his impact points against spin are there to see. Abhishek is a young guy coming through, we asked him to bowl a lot more this season, and he did it. Till we went on, he didn't know he was bowling the first over. I didn't want to think too much about it. It's all about starting fresh here again, take the wicket out of it.
Kane Williamson: Bit of a minor injury on my elbow. It's feeling pretty good. Nice to be out there and get my first opportunity, but nice mostly to learn from our previous games as a team. A lot of teams are trying to find their best balance, and I think we'll see through the tournament that it'll vary.
KL Rahul: It was tough to adapt but we knew, having watched the games, what to expect. We tried to get used to the conditions as quickly as we could but we were 10-15 runs short. A few batsmen got set and couldn't get those 30s-40s that could get us through. Hopefully we learn from this mistake, we have a game in a few days, hopefully we come and win. We knew that Jonny and David are their key batters, you know they're going to come hard. It's a little tricky to have attacking fields. Was hoping to get one of them and then attack, that was my thinking. Now looking back that could have been different. Every game from now is important for us and we've always been in that situation, where we get in a place where we have to win every game. Not a bad place to be, to be honest.
Shivy: "SRH be like if we struggle with the middle-order, then we simply won't let them play"
Akhil: "Even if SRH had a bad start to the season, this win here has taken them to top of the bottom 4. It does a world of good to their confidence going into the middle phase of the tournament."
Rajesh: "Thank god it's a double header. This match can be wiped from memory and we can look forward to Morgan and Co at Mumbai"
6.54pm A first win of the season for Sunrisers. They've huffed and puffed a little at the end, but that is purely conditions. They looked in control throughout this chase, something they've struggled with in the tournament so far. Their three overseas batters were all that was needed tonight, after the bowlers did superbly to restrict Punjab to 120. From bottom place, they go up to fifth now. Punjab sink into eighth.
slower ball at a length outside off, cut to sweeper cover
dropped at mid-off. Full slower one at off stump, driven at chest height to Hooda's right. He stretches and is in line, gets two hands out. Catches it on the forearm of his right hand
clubbed over midwicket. Length ball at middle stump, walks down at it and swings across the line. Gets it off the middle and that puts the required runs in single digits now
slower ball, short of a length and just outside off. Slides under his attempted pull

short of a length and rising past the cut as he backs deep into the crease
first boundary in nearly seven overs. Brings up fifty for Bairstow. Hood drops it short, and it is flat, at middle stump. He gets deep in the crease and pulls between deep square and deep midwicket
17 needed off 18 now. There's one over of Hooda left. Will he go with that one last over of spin? Yes it will. Looks like Kumble had a chat with him at the boundary line and he ran in to take the ball from Rahul.
tossed up outside off, leans in for the drive but yorks himself, that ends up pitch side on the leg side
Chirs: "Regardless of the outcome this is definitely the most boring match of this IPL so far."

Atit Shah: "Bit surprised with SRH strategy here. Understood that they want 2 points but with KW there, you cannot have more reliable player than him. Should finish this in next 2 overs. "
slower short ball at off stump, waits on that and wants to stab that over short third. But there just isn't enough pace, it's 97kph. It ends up at sweeper cover
slower ball at a length on leg stump, lines up a pull shot but gets an inside edge onto pad that drops into the pitch
Goes around the wicket
touch chance dropped at extra cover. Slower ball, short of a length outside off. Steps out and hammers this with a flat-bat. Henriques sticks out his right hand and cops that on the forehand, had to be aerial for that
