SRH Win By 69 Runs! T Natarajan completes the formalities by rattling the stumps of Arshdeep Singh with a cracking yorker. What an emphatic all-round performance it has been from the Orange Army! After piling up a mountain of 201 runs, the bowlers did a brilliant job as KXIP got bundled out for 132 runs. Nicholas Pooran's was the lone fighter for Punjab but his efforts came to an unfortunate end. Hyderabad are back to winning ways.
OUT! Nicholas Pooran's sensational knock finally comes to an end as SRH's victory looks inevitable from this point. After facing four successive dot deliveries off Rashid Khan, the southpaw goes for a big shot but finds T Natarajan at backward point. Pooran c T Natarajan b Rashid Khan 77(37)
OUT! The promotion of Mujeeb ur Rahman didn't work as he departs after scoring just run off three balls. It was a dot ball initially as umpires believed it was a bump ball. However, the review showcased that Mujeeb has edged it clearly before Jonny Bairstow took the catch. Six down for KXIP! Nicholas Pooran still standing as lone warrior. Mujeeb c Bairstow b Khaleel Ahmed 1(3)
OUT! A wicket against the run of play and that too through a run out. Glenn Maxwell departs as the contest stays in balance. He went for a quick single after jamming a ball through extra cover. However, Priyam Garg neatly collected the ball inside the ring and made a direct hit at the non-striker's end, bringing curtains to Maxwell's uncanny knock. Maxwell run out (Priyam Garg) 7(12)
What a knock it has been from the young Nicholas Pooran. He brings up a fifty off just 17 balls, fastest of the season. 28 runs from Abdul Samad's over as Kings XI Punjab are still in the hunt. This game is certainly not going anywhere.
OUT! Another one bites the dust and its a big one ! Skipper KL Rahul is gone as SRH tighten grip over the match. He miscued a sweep shot off Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson takes a good catch at deep square leg. It was an uncharacteristic innings from the dasher which has come to and unfortunate end. Punjab are three down now. Rahul c Williamson b Abhishek Sharma 11(16)
OUT! What a remarkable comeback after conceding a four! PrabhSimran Singh went for another big shot against Khaleel Ahmed but found Priyam Garg at cover point. KXIP have lost two now and they need a substantial partnership to stay in the contest. Singh c Priyam Garg b Khaleel Ahmed 11(8)
OUT! Chasing a mammoth total, the last things KXIP wanted was an early run out and they have got exactly that. Mayank Agarwal was determined to take a couple as he drives through extra cover. However, skipper KL Rahul refused to take the second run as Mayank himself stranded in the middle of the pitch. David Warner makes a strong throw from the ropes and brings curtains to Agarwal's short stay. Agarwal run out (Warner/Khaleel Ahmed) 9(6)
The players are out in the middle as the chase gets underway. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are the two batsmen for Kings XI Punjab while Sandeep Sharma starts proceedings with the ball.
So, SRH eventually cross the 200-run mark but KXIP will be happier of the two sides, going back in the dressing room. Only 101 runs were scored in the last 10 overs courtesy some exceptional death bowling by Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh. Nevertheless, KXIP batsmen still have a job in hand when they come out to bat.

After losing their first two games, SRH made a brilliant comeback against Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings, winning two games on the trot. However, they again lost the plot against Mumbai Indians and faced and faced a 34-run defeat. Also, the ruling out of pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar has indeed weakened the bowling attack and the likes of Rashid Khan and T Natarajan have to take even more responsibility. Skipper David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey will handle the mantle in the batting department.

On the other hand, KXIP is sitting last in the team standings despite playing a decent quality of cricket. Keeping their 10-wicket defeat against CSK aside, they have possessed great challenged but couldn’t capitalize in the crunch situations. Skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have piled up a mountain of runs while Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell have impressed with the ball.
With both teams not in excellent form, predicting favourites will not be an easy job. However, one can place their bet on KXIP as their batsmen are in sensational touch and SRH will take the field without services of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
