IPL 2018 KXIP vs SRH in Mohali: Kings XI Punjab continued their winning run as they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 15 runs in Mohali. Chasing 191 runs in 20 overs, SRH lost Shikhar Dhawan early as he was retired hurt in the first over. Kane Williamson who came in at number three played some good strokes but his efforts were never enough to take his team over the line. Manish Pandey too chipped in with a half-century but it went in vain. Earlier, Chris Gayle hammered SRH bowlers all around the park and notched up his 6th IPL hundred and first in the season.

Chris Gayle is man of the match

Here's what the left-hander has to say, "I'm always determined. I always give it my all for whatever franchise I represent. I'm a 100 percent. Like I said, it's a new franchise. A lot of people might say that Chris has a lot to prove - he didn't get selected or picked early in the auction. I think Virender Sehwag has saved IPL by picking me. This is a brilliant start. Viru said in an interview that if Chris Gayle can win us two games, we have got our money's worth. I'd like to have a another word with Viru and see what happens from thereon. Overall, happy with the win and now (time to) move on to Kolkata. It all depends on the mood and conditions is also tricky as well. Playing so many years in India, I know what the conditions are like. I am glad to get a hundred today. This is the final home game in Mohali, and I'm going to miss this wicket. I'm not really here to prove it to anyone. I've done it all before. Been there, done that. Just here to put some respect on the name. Tomorrow's my daughter's birthday, so going to spend some time with her and enjoy this win. DON'T FORGET THE NAME."

That's all on our side for this match. JOin us for further coverage of the Indian Premier League

KXIP win by 15 runs

Kings XI Punjab restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to 178/4 in 194-run chase in Mohali

23:15 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Another one goes down and Deepak Hooda has to depart after he tries to send the ball over the ropes but only manages to find a man in the deep. Hooda departs for 5 and SRH are 134/4

23:04 (IST)19 Apr 2018

After being hit for a boundary, Andrew Tye scalps the big wicket of Kane Williamson. Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their third wicket for 113. Williamson is gone for 54

22:58 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Hyderabad needs many more like that. That was pitched outside off stump and Manish Pandey just guides it to cover boundary for a four. But they are surely under pressure in this run-chase

22:47 (IST)19 Apr 2018
SRH on backfoot

We are halfway through the innings and Sunrisers Hyderabad are surely on backfoot. They have just managed 72 in first two overs with two batsmen back in the hut and one retired hurt.

22:37 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Kane Williamson dances dow the track and hammers it away for a huge six. A brilliant use of the feet from the skipper and he needs to accelerate now as the asking rate is going up now

22:24 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Mohit Sharma his second wicket. Yusuf Pathan played a slower delivery from Mohit on to his stumps and he goes for 19,  SRH 37/2 after 5

22:15 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Yusuf Pathan gets two chances. First, it was R Ashwin who let go off a catch at mid-off and now it's Yuvraj Singh at the cover area. Yuvraj is one of the safest pair of hands in world cricket but even the best can make mistakes. 

22:09 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Mohit Sharma strikes and Wriddhiman Saha has been cleaned up for 6. He tried to slash the ball hard but didn't connect it and has been sent back early. More misery added to SRH.

22:03 (IST)19 Apr 2018
Shikhar Dhawan retires hurt

Sunrisers Hyderabad began their chase and this is a big blow. He has been retired hurt after getting hit on the elbow. Dhawan is one player who can soak the pressure in this situation but this brings Kane Williamson into the attack

21:52 (IST)19 Apr 2018
KXIP post 193/3 in 20 overs

Chris Gayle scored his 6th IPL hundred and 21st T20 ton as KXIP post 193/3 in 20 overs. After winning the toss, R Ashwin opted to bat first.

21:35 (IST)19 Apr 2018
100 for Chris Gayle

What a moment for Chris Gayle. He scores his 6th IPL hundred and 21st T20 ton. What a dominating knock this has been from the West Indies batsman. He has thrashed every bowler who has come in his way. Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore would be thinking if they have missed the trick in letting Gayle go.

21:30 (IST)19 Apr 2018
Bhuvi gets Karun

Karun Nair goes for a well played 31 off 21. He tried to take the aerial route at on-side but only managed to give a catch to Shikhar Dhawan at cow corner

21:29 (IST)19 Apr 2018
Bhuvneshwar Kumar's contains Gayle

Good captaincy from Kane Williamson. He knows that only Bhuvi can keep Gayle silent at this moment. Whehn Gayle scored 175 for RCB against Pune Warriors India, Bhuvi was the only bowler with an economy of 6.

Gayle dominates

Chris Gayle moves into the 90s with a maximum. He has already struck 14 sixes in this IPL 2018. The left-hander is showing his worth and what a knock this has been from him

21:07 (IST)19 Apr 2018
Raining Sixes!

Back to back sixes from Chris Gayle and Rashid Khan is proving to be a costly customer in the middle. Four sixes coming from that over and Rashid leaks 26 in that one. What a fine display of batting this has been from Gayle.

21:03 (IST)19 Apr 2018
Chris Gayle scores 50

Chris Gayle notches up another half-century and he is on fire. He is scoring runs at a good rate in this innings as well. Kings XI Punjab are in command right now. After 13 overs, they are 104/2

20:52 (IST)19 Apr 2018

Once again Mayank Agarwal gets out after getting a good start. It was a soft dismissal and Siddharth Kaul has his first wicket. It was an outside off-stump delivery and Mayank didn't time it well. Hooda grabbed that one with ease at backward point

Kings XI Punjab take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at home. Both the sides are coming into this game with a win under their belt in their respective last matches. KL Rahul has been in brilliant touch with the bat in this season while Chris Gayle who played his first match against Chennai Super Kings too showed his class after notching up 33-ball 63 that included 4 maximums. Apart from these two, KXIP also have Myanak Agarwal who has got the starts but hasn't converted them to big totals. Yuvraj Singh hasn't come up with something big so far in the tournament and the Mohali crowd might get to see vintage Yuvraj if he settles in early. The Punjab franchise would expect him to get going in the clash against SRH. Sunrisers Hyderabad have a strong batting line up with Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan in the list. Dhawan has been a consistent performer for SRH and his side would rely on him to get a positive start.
