Chasing 168 as target, SRH managed only 132 for nine after being at 55 for four in 8.1 overs.

“Obviously we didn’t start well, we didn’t set the tone from ball one. We tried to to keep them under 150-160, and then when you lose two-three wickets in the first 10 it is hard to make a comeback. That’s what happens in this format,” Warner said after the match. IPL 2015: Complete Coverage

The Sunrisers skipper also lauded the efforts of KKR pacer Umesh Yadav who bowled exceptionally well upfront picking up figures of two for 34 from his four overs.
