Overs 3: Right after the dismissal of Gayle, KL Rahul flicks the second delivery over midwicket boundary for a maximum. 10 runs from the over. KXIP 21/1

Overs 2.1: OUT! That’s a big blow to Kings XI Punjab as they have lost the big man Chris Gayle. A top-edge off Khaleel Ahmed and the ball balloons high in the night sky. Manish Pandey calls for it and catches it, fumbles a little but ensures it remains in his grasp. Gayle scored 4. KXIP 11/1

Mohammad Nabi then struck one over the bowler’s head for another six before Mujeeb bowled two successive wides. More punishment was in store for the Afghan spinner as his countrymate smoked him for yet another six. 26 runs from the over. Mujeeb’s figures: 4-0-66-0. SRH 195/3

Overs 15.3: OUT! Breakthrough for Kings XI Punjab as Ravichandran Ashwin returns to get rid of Manish Pandey. A carrom ball and Pandey wanted to play it over the short fine leg fielder but failed to clear Shami who was stationed there to accept an easy catch. He scored 36 off 25. SRH 160/2

Overs 15: Boundaries keep flowing for Sunrisers. One each from the bat of David Warner and Manish Pandey as Arshdeep Singh returns into the attack. 13 runs from the over. SRH 159/1

Overs 14: Warner is switching gears again – a switch-hit from the Australian as he lifts one from Mujeeb over short third man for a four. 12 runs from it. SRH 146/1

Overs 13: Manish Pandey goes big as he sends one over Murugan Ashwin’s head for his first maximum of the innings. 12 runs from the over. SRH 134/1

Overs 12: Ashwin leapt high and stuck his right-hand to almost grab a one-handed stunner at mid-off. Had he held onto it, Manish Pandey would have been a goner. 1o runs from the over. SRH 122/1

Overs 11.2: FIFTY no. 8 for David Warner this IPL season – reaches the milestone with a four off Mohammed Shami.

Overs 10: Six runs from Ravichandran Ashwin’s third over as well. The Ashwins have reined SRH in. SRH 103/1 at the halfway stage.

Overs 9: Another right over from Murugan Ashwin – just six runs from it. His first two overs have resulted in 11 runs. SRH 97/1

Overs 7: In-form Manish Pandey walks in at No.3. Two wides make it five runs from the over. SRH 82/1

Overs 6.1: OUT! Murugan Ashwin strikes with his first delivery of the match giving KXIP a much needed breather. It was outside off and Wriddhiman Saha went for an ungainly shot underedging it to be out caught behind. He scored 28 off 13. SRH 78/1

Overs 6: Captain R Ashwin brings himself into the attack. And David Warner greets him with a first-ball six over fine leg region. Ashwin adjusts well to keep them to five singles in the over later. Ashwin stopped twice midway through his bowling stride – Mankading warning? The crowd joined in the fun. 11 runs from the over. SRH 77/0

Overs 5: This has been a sensation start by SRH – Wriddhiman Saha takes charge as he belts and a six off successive deliveries from Mohammed Shami. 13 runs from the over. SRH 66/0

Overs 4: Mujeeb also continues. This is sloppy from Kings XI Punjab – another poor effort from the debutant keeper as he allows an equally poor delivery to slip through for five wides. Warner then chips one over extra cover for a four before Saha brings up the fastest team fifty of the season with another boundary to end the over. 18 runs from the over. SRH 53/0

Overs 3: Despite that expensive start, Ashwin continues with Arshdeep. Wriddhiman Saha clears the infield for his first boundary off the third delivery. It was turning out to be a pretty decent over before sloppiness behind the wicket from ‘keeper Prabhsimran Singh resulted in four byes. 15 runs from it. SRH 35/0

Overs 2: Spin introduced in Mujeeb-ur-Rahman – Starts well before Warner chips the penultimate delivery over long-off region for the first SIX of the night. 10 runs from the over. SRH 20/0

Over 1: Arshdeep Singh started with a peach of a delivery first up – getting the ball to swing. However, David Warner punished him for straying, putting away one past the ‘keeper for his first four. The young left-arm pacer once again lost his line and was meted out a similar treatment. 10 runs from the over. SRH 10/0

Arshdeep Singh with the new ball for KXIP; David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha to open the innings for SRH
