    19:47 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    FOUR! SIX! Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been smashed hard by Andre Russel who hits a four and a six in two balls to take his side closer to the required total. Russell batting at a strike rate of 265!

    19:44 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    FOUR! Stand and deliver stuff from Andre Russell and he has crunched a wider delivery from Kaul for a boundary. As long as Russell is in the middle, the SRH will feel the pressure.

    19:42 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    SIX! SIX! Siddarth Kaul pitches it fuller to Andre Russell and the Caribbean is hitting it out of the park at will! Two sixes in a row and the equation drops down to 41 runs  in 16 balls.

    Brilliant over

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar just gives 6 runs in his over and KKR need 53 to win in the final three overs. Andre Russell and Shubman Gill in the middle. This looks way out of hands now.

    19:29 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    Play to resume in 6 minutes

    GOOD NEWS! The play is expected to resume soon!

    19:25 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    19:17 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    15 overs gone

    After 15 overs, Kolkata Knight Riders are 114/3. With Nitish Rana and Andre Russell in the middle, KKR need 68 more to win in 30 balls. This is not going to be an easy chase at all.

    19:08 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    Nitish Rana brings up his 6th IPL fifty in 35 balls. He needs to start hitting big shots now. After 13 overs, KKR are now 97/3 after 13 overs.

    19:01 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    WICKET! Dinesh Karthik's promotion did not help and the skipper was deceived by the knuckle ball. Hits it straight to opposition captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar. DK departs for 2. KKR 95/3

    18:58 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    FOUR! Nitish Rana flicks a boundary towards midwicket in Sandeep Sharma's first ball. KKR need more of these boundaries right now. DK has promoted himself up the order, instead of sending Sunil Narine or Andre Russell. This could hurt KKR.

    18:53 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    WICKET! Siddarth Kaul strikes and he gets the big wicket of Robin Uthappa. Bowls a yorker and it just knocked down the off stump. Uthappa tried to step up and smash it, but completely missed the ball. KKR 87/2

    18:49 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    SIX! Nitish Rana has smashed Shakib Al Hasan for another biggy in the over. Slower delivery picked it up from outside off stump and it travels miles over the midwicket. 15 runs in the over. 

    18:47 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    Much-needed six from Robin Uthappa and Shakib Al Hasan has been put under pressure first ball. The ball traveled past the fielder at deep midwicket and this might release the shackles.

    18:45 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    What an over!

    Rashid Khan just gives away 2 runs in an over. KKR are 70/1 after 10 overs. Still need 112 runs to win in 10 overs. The required run rate over 11 runs per over.

    WHAT THE HELL! Rashid Khan has scripted the wicket of Robin  Uthappa, who smashed it into the air. The ball travelled miles into the air and then landed straight to Yusuf Pathan, who let it go. WOW!

    18:32 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    KKR should be worried

    about the Run rate. They cannot allow the run rate to get too high.

    18:30 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    50 up for KKR

    Tidy over from Siddarth  Kaul - he gives away just 4  runs in it. KKR are 51/1 after 7 overs. Things are starting to slow down, but as long as wickets are in hand, KKR will not be worried too much.

    18:28 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    Robin Uthappa vs Rashid Khan

    18:06 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    WICKET! Chris Lynn has been deceived by the spin on the ball. He mistimes on the arm ball,  gets an edge and it just goes straight in the air. The ball lands in Rashid Khan's safe hands. KKR 7/1

    Excellent start!

    18:00 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    Nitish Rana and Chris Lynn are out to open for Kolkata Knight Riders.  Bhuvneshwar Kumar starts off the attack for Sunrisers Hyderabad. First ball, it just goes through the batsman, almost clipping off the bails. OOOOHH. CHASE IS ON!

    17:49 (IST)24 Mar 2019
    David Warner speaks

    "It is good to get out there and contribute. It looked a nice wicket to bat on but it slowed down a bit which made us reassess after six overs. I was a but nervous in the dressing room and kept drinking pickle juice. The elbow injury wasn't all too bad and I've done a lot of work back home with my trainer. The ball comes on nicely under lights here and hopefully we can keep the ball new for the first six overs. When you've got the momentum and you haven't lost a wicket it is easy to free your arms and go after the spinners. But when you lose a wicket you have to reassess, but they came back well at the end."

    17:45 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    NOT OUT! Dinesh Karthik has clipped the bails after a throw from Shubman Gill. But Shankar was in. Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar score 11 runs in the final over. SRH finish 181/3 in 20 overs. 

    KKR need 182 to win.

    17:36 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    WICKET! Prashid Krishna strikes as he rammed Vijay Shankar on the pads. Huge appeal from KKR and the umpire gives it out. Shankar will review this. It seems to be hitting leg stump. NO, ITS MISSING STUMPS! 

    17:34 (IST)24 Mar 2019

    SIX! Vijay Shankar has smashed a fuller delivery from Prasidh Krishna over deep midwicket for a massive six. Sunrisers Hyderabad are 166/3 after 18.4 overs.
