IPL 2019, SRH vs KKR: Sunrisers Hyderabad had no trouble in putting Kolkata Knight Riders to the sword and ensuring they lose their fifth match in a row. Jonny Bairstow (80*) and David Warner (67) were once again in pulsating form to chase down the below-par 160 run total with ease. Even as KKR picked one wicket, that of Warner, the job was completed by Bairstow with consecutive sixes – winning with 30 balls to spare. (Full scorecard)

The win – second on the bounce – has taken Sunrisers into the top-half of the IPL standings and in contention for the playoffs. Despite the low total to defend, KKR never got close to SRH and had no answer to a fourth 100 run stand between Warner and Bairstow.

Earlier, Andre Russell’s request to be promoted in the order wasn’t paid heed to and he came on to bat at No. 7 where he scored 15 runs from 9 balls including two sixes. His impact was diminished with Chris Lynn and Rinku Singh stitching a 50-run partnership. Lynn scored a half century to steady things after KKR lost control.

Man of the Match: Khaleel Ahmed

Khaleel Ahmed picked three wickets to put KKR under pressure. "Quite feeling good. The wicket was a little bit slow. After a while, I understood how the wicket was behaving. They played exceptionally well. My mom used to tell me win a man of the match award and I dedicate this award to her. I have been working on my fitness and trying to get stronger."

Post-match talk: Kane Williamson

Now for SRH skipper Kane Williamson to come up: "I don't think it changed a huge amount. It slowed down a bit. We kept them down to a low total, It was a complete performance. It is tough tournament. You need to adapt. Let's hope they continue. Everyone is trying to play their roles. To take nothing away from the first half, the bowlers did really well. It has been a pleasure to watch them bat. We know that we would come in as a middle order when needed. They (Bairstow and Warner) are gonna be big losses. They are world class players and they will be missed at the back end."

Star performer Jonny Bairstow

Bairstow scored 80 runs tonight. Here's what he had to say: "The way they got off to that start, the bowlers did well to peg them back. Huge credit to our guys, it could've got away from us. Could've got to 200. When we came out to bat, the pitch slowed up. Expected it to be slightly quicker than that tonight. Don't want to start any rumours. It's good fun. He's a great bloke to bat with. We run well between the wickets. When he gets off to start like that, it's just a case of giving him the strike. There's been a lot of chat about the middle order, probably unfairly so. We've got some quality players in that middle order who haven't been able to spend some time in the middle which is a good thing because it means we've been doing our job. It's been brilliant. My first IPL and I've been living every bit of it. Hopefully I'll be back."

Post match talk: Dinesh Karthik

KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik first: "I think 160 was a par score on this wicket if we'd bowled well. I think they (Warner and Bairstow) batted really well but our fielding cost us. And after that dropped catch he (Bairstow) came at us all guns blazing. A wicket of Bairstow would have felt better, feel for the guy (Yarra Prithviraj). We have been outplayed in this game. Having said that our bowling has been off colour in the tournament. Our fielding needs a lot of improvement too. A form issue with (Kuldeep) - as he couldn't stand up for us in the last game. We had to give him a break and get him back fresh."

SRH win!

Almost a replica of the earlier six. Into the same region, almost the same ball and Bairstow with the same treatment. Sunrisers Hyderabad win by 9 wickets with 30 balls to spare. Jonny Bairstow remaining unbeaten on 80 from 43 balls with seven boundaries and four sixes

19:12 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Going one better this time around. This one is spanked towards deep mid-wicket for a six.

19:12 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Piyush Chawla into the attack and Jonny Bairstow is not looking to wait around for too long. Plays it late and finds the gap to send the ball crusiing for a boundary

19:02 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Yarra Prithviraj gets his maiden wicket off his own effort now. A slower one and Warner was into the slog early. Misses the ball completely and the ball dismantles the leg stump. Warner dismissed for 67 from 38 balls. SRH are 131/1

18:59 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Another chance goes begging. Prithviraj denied another wicket. Jonny Bairstow the lucky man once again. Piyush Chawla the guilty player this time around. Didn't get close to the ball, didn't even get fingers to it. 

18:57 (IST)21 Apr 2019

To add salt to wounds, Warner gets on the strike and smacks Narine for a six and a four. The boundary is slapped down the ground and the six is sent towards the long on region. 

18:56 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Just not KKR's day. Sunil Narine gets a top edge off Jonny Bairstow and it goes comfortably towards fine leg region where Gurney never gets close to it. Terrible judgement. Second lifeline for Bairstow

18:54 (IST)21 Apr 2019
Under 50 needed now

11 overs gone and SRH are 114/0 with Warner on 55 and Bairstow on 54. Less than 50 runs required now for SRH

18:47 (IST)21 Apr 2019
Warner for SRH

Warner in each season for SRH

2014: 528

2015: 562

2016: 848

2017: 641

2018: DNP

2019: 501*

18:46 (IST)21 Apr 2019

Now Jonny Bairstow brings up his fifty - also from 28 balls. Six boundaries and two sixes in the inning. 

18:44 (IST)21 Apr 2019

David Warner brings up his fifty from 28 balls. Two fours and four sixes. How bloody good has he been this IPL season. Orange Cap is all his!

18:44 (IST)21 Apr 2019
100-run stand

8.4 overs gone and Warner, Bairstow make it 100/0. Just 60 needed from 68 balls

18:41 (IST)21 Apr 2019

First one was all power. This one is all skill. Nice delivery by Cariappa, looks to beat the outside edge but Bairstow connects late to steer it for a boundary towards third man. 

18:40 (IST)21 Apr 2019

KC Cariappa had gone for 20 runs in his first over. He's started off by being hit for a six in the second. Nice length for Bairstow to get underneath it and go down on one knee to sweep it into the stands. 

18:38 (IST)21 Apr 2019
One way traffic

KKR could do with a wicket or two right about now. Warner and Bairstow are going about without any fuss. They have the most runs at the top of the order in the IPL. And the tally continues to rise....
