Ishant misses the free hit and KXIP now need 13 off 8 balls. This might be the end for KXIP. Hyderabad need 13 off 8 balls.

WICKET! 16 off 12 balls for KXIP. And Bhuvi sends back Cariappa. This was unnecessary as a single would have seen Vohra back in the crease. But he goes for glory and Bhuvi disturbs timber. Cariappa goes for 1. KXIP's score reads 144/8


MAXIMUM! Vohra hits that into the long-on boundary. That was short from Kaul and Vohra goes flat and straight. Good shot as KXIP's score reads 138/7
