Match 48, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad 29 April, 2019

Toss won by Kings XI Punjab (decided to bowl)

Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Kings XI Punjab by 45 runs

Man of the Match: David Warner



That's all for today, we'll be back tomorrow with another cracking contest from Bangalore. 


What a fantastic farewell for David Warner before he departs to join the Australian team in the lead up to the World Cup. It was a convincing 45 run win for the SRH in their own backyard. 12 points and fourth place for now for SRH. 


End of the 20th over and the innings. SRH has won this game by 45 runs after Sharma bowls a fantastic last over where they gave away two runs and took two wickets.


WICKET: Another variation and Sandeep Sharma has Mujeeb clean bowled for 0 with two balls left to finish the game.

Prabhsimran is a talented young cricketer but in this game he has looked out of his depth. It can happen to any cricketer and specially a young one. There would have been nerves aplenty but he has a lot of talent and it would be harsh to judge him on this performance. I hope he gets a few more opportunities to show us what he is capable of.


WICKET: Sandeep Sharma gets his first wicket of the game as he traps Prabhsimran Singh (16) lbw off the first ball of the final over of the match.


Just the eight runs for KXIP from that Khaleel Ahmed over with one over to go and the game well and truly out of reach with a dejected R Ashwin looking on. Did Rahul leave too much to do towards teh end? Possibly as the pressure of the run-rate kept increasing. 

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 23:37(IST)

That’s the game done and dusted!! But it’s been a super innings from kl Rahul and it augurs well for India that he is in such exceptional form.


WICKET: That's pretty much the end of any hopes. KXIP's KL Rahul (79) skies a slower ball from Khaleel and is caught by Kane Williamson. 


Not the way Rahul would have liked the 18th over th play out! Some good disciplined bowling by Bhuvi has kept him from getting the big shots away. Rahul gets three of the first three, before Bhuvi bowled a wide and allowed Prabhsimran a couple. But while Rahul failed to get the shots away, young Prabhsimran sent it a few rows back over the head of David Warner at long off to end the over with a six. KXIP are 157/5 after 18 and need 28 runs each of the final two overs.

KL Rahul is once again showing his quality and class! What an unbelievable talent he is. If there is anyone who can win the game from here on for kings 11 - it’s KL Rahul. But for that - he will have to bat at least 15 more deliveries.


KL Rahul isn't looking to give this up just yet as SRH bring Sandeep Sharma to the bowling attack. Prabhsimran has his go at the first two deliveries before Rahul smacks Sharma over his head for a six. Rahul ensures the scoreboard keeps moving with singles after that and also keeps strike for the 18th over. KXIP are 145/5 after 17.


SRH bring Bhuvneshwar into the attack for the 16th over as they look to round it off here with ease. But, Rahul welcomes him with intent and a six over mid-wicket after which he runs a quick two at point. Rahul plays out three dot balls in the full over, but does get another boundary as he smokes the knuckle ball over extra cover. KXIP are 135/5 after 16 overs and Rahul is leading a late charge. 

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 23:17(IST)

What a spell from that magician from Afghanistan - Rashid Khan. This has been unbelievable bowling - to go for less than 6 an over on this pitch is just magnificent. He would be one of my contenders for man of the match (just for his economy rate).


Rashid Khan completes his quota of overs with an ecomocial three run over. Rahul and debutant Prabhsimran can't get him away and the noose tightens around the visitors on Monday evening. KXIP are 123/5 after 15 overs and are finding it very hard to get going under tremendous pressure. The required run rate is well above 16 at this point in time. 


14 overs in and Rahul has also completed his half-century with two hige sixes of Nabi's first two balls of the over. He took a single after that after which Prabhsimran played out three dots. KXIP are 120/5 after 14 overs.


Half-century! KL Rahul has completed his half-century in 38 balls with two back to back sixes to welcome Nabi to the crease. 

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 23:09(IST)

Looks like this might be too big a mountain for kings 11 to climb. It was always going to be a tough chase because sunrisers have one of the better bowling attacks in the IPL.


WICKET: Rashid Khan has taken two in two. After Miller, it is the captain R Ashwin who looks to clear the boundary on his first ball but Manish Pandey at long-on takes a clean catch. 


WICKET: Miller (11) now departs - smashes it towards the mid-wicket boundary but he can't clear the ropes and Shankar takes an easy catch to give Rashid another wicket. 


After that expensive over, it is a fantastic come back by Nabi in the 12th over as he conceded only the 5 runs. Three singles and a two to the duo of Miller and Rahul who can't seem to break out of the shackles here in Hyderabad. KXIP are 101/3 after 12 overs and it's getting tougher by the ball for KXIP.  


That was Khaleel's third over and it went of 15 runs, of which 14 were off the bat of Pooran who seemed to have taken a liking to the left-armer before he fell as he was trying one shot too many. That's brough David Miller in alongside KL Rahul. After 11 voers, KXIP are 96/3.


WICKET: Khaleel though finally gets his man after being hammered for 14 runs in 4 balls. Pooran looks for the hook over fine-leg but does not connect and Bhuvneshwar comes in fast to catch that while diving forward. 


SIX and FOUR! Nicholas Pooran showing some urgency here in the 11th over. A six to the leg-side where Bhuvi can't take the catch and stay inside the boundary welcomed Khaleel before Pooran sent it flying over his head for a four of the next ball. 

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 22:54(IST)

Someone needs to put their hand up and play an innings like Hardik did. Pooran and Rahul have the ability to hit the boundary balls - but they need to do it consistently. They need at least 2 boundaries an over.


Half the number of overs are done in Hyderabad and KXIP are more than a 100 behind the target as of now. SRH bring in Mohammad Nabi to bowl and he kept things more or less quiet through the over, but for an over pitched delivery which Pooran smacked over long-on for a 6. Earlier, Rahul played a nicely placed reverse sweep but managed only 2 as he thought it was running away for four, to which the commentators spoke about a lack of urgency from the visitors. 81/2 after 10 overs.


Great over from the point of view of SRH as Rashid Khan gets a wicekt to disrupt any momentum KXIP were building. Mayank smashed him over the top of his head for a six before getting caught out in the deep. That brought in Nicholas Pooran who took no risks and played out the 9th over without more damage. KXIP are71/2 after 9. 


WICKET: Mayank Agarwal (27) hits Rashid for a six and then looks to take him on again but holes out at mid-wicket as Vijay Shankar takes a comfortable catch. KXIP are two down for 71.


With 12 overs to go, one would normally look at this score and say it is not a bad start but with the target well in excess of 200 and the required rate at 12.5, KXIP are well behind the pace and will need to up the ante. 


Another over through by the SRH bowlers, this time Sandeep Sharma completes his second over without too much trouble. Just the 8 runs from the over, after Rahul flicked him over the square-leg region for a boundary. Sandeep started off with a wide but bowled a good line and length to allow only three more singles in the over. KXIP must get a move on now in the final 12 overs. KXIP are 63/1 after 8 overs.

Follow all the live cricket action from IPL 2019 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP): The KXIP had to come out strongly to make something of the chase but good bowling early on has claimed the wickets of Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal and Nicholas Pooran which hasn't helped. SRH's bowlers have kept them in the driver's seat.

SRH vs KXIP in IPL 2019 will be broadcast on Monday (April 29) from 8:00 PM onwards. SRH vs KXIP live streaming will be available on Hotstar and Jio TV. You can follow all the ball-by-ball updates and live commentary with analysis on our live blog.

PREVIEW: After facing defeats in their previous encounters, both Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab will look to turn back to the winning ways when they face each other at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, here on Monday.

Hyderabad had to face a crushing seven-wicket in their last encounter against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur. Defending 161 on Saturday, SRH bowlers struggled to get breakthroughs as Royals easily reached the target with five balls to spare and theoretically kept their chances alive of making it to the playoffs.

Punjab, on the other hand, also faced defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their previous encounter in Bengaluru. Chasing a massive 203-run target last Wednesday, the R Ashwin-led side managed to score 185/7 in their full quota of 20 overs, thus losing the match by 17 runs.

Both the teams have 10 points with Kings XI standing below the SRH owing to lower run rate. And they would be hoping to get two crucial points and move upwards in the points table.
