IPL 2020, SRH vs KXIP Highlights: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 69 runs, their biggest ever win against KXIP.

SRH put up 201/6. They were given a cracking start by Jonny Bairstow (97) and David Warner (52). KXIP’s bowling woes continued in the match, and it would be 36.4 overs since their last wicket that they would strike again — Ravi Bishnoi (3/29) picking up both the openers in the 16th over of the match. 6 wickets fell for 41 runs in the last 5 overs, as SRH collapsed after Bishnoi’s momentum-changing over. Nicholas Pooran (77) brought up a 17-ball 50 in the chase even as wickets fell around him, the fastest 50 of the season. Pooran kept holding one end up, until Rashid Khan (3/12) delivered the knockout blow in the 15th over. KXIP were all out for 132.

Rashid Khan goes through Pooran's gate but the ball misses the stumps too. Bishnoi joins Pooran at 8. With Rashid continuing, Pooran turns down singles.

23:06 (IST)08 Oct 2020
KXIP 126/6/ after 14

Mandeep Singh the Number 6 for KXIP. VVS Laxman, part of the SRH dugout, says KXIP only have the tail to follow, with them fielding five genuine bowlers. Sharp work in the field from SRH continues - Garg appearing especially electric. Rashid Khan gets Mandeep Singh;s wicket with a googly. Khaleel bowls the 14th. Pooran knocks off boundaries against him but then Mujeeb is caught behind. Another wicket. KXIP need 76 in 6 overs.

Pooran continues losing partners - KXIP 105/4 after 11

There have been five 100m-plus sixes hit so far at IPL 2020. Three of them have been hit by Nicholas Pooran in that 9th over. Samad will remember that over for a long time. Rashid Khan back in the 10th. 5 runs from his 2nd over as the Afghan leggie continues spinning his web. Natarajan brought back in the 11th with SRH's 5th bowling option being stretched by Pooran. The left hander gets a four in this over too. Then there's a direct hit! Maxwell is run out. Priyam Garg with another piece of magic on the field. Maxwell is run out for 7.

22:32 (IST)08 Oct 2020
KXIP 91/3 after 9

Maxwell is in at 5. KXIP need a big hand from the Big Show today. SRH go to Rashid Khan in the 8th. 2 runs from his over. Maxwell sees out a few dot balls against him. Abdul Samad bowls the 9th. Pooran treats him exactly like he treated Abhishek Sharma. Lofted six down the ground. Four to follow. Huge six over long on, danced down the track to follow. 105 metres! Two more sixes to follow. 28 runs off Samad's over. Pooran reaches his 50 in 17 balls, the fastest 50 of the season. Pooran on 56 off 19

22:16 (IST)08 Oct 2020
KXIP 45/2 after 6

Pooran is KXIP's new man in. He creams a four through the covers off his first ball. Natarajan continues in the 6th over. A flick of the wrist to get a six by Pooran. KL still playing the waiting game. Pooran the aggressor.

21:59 (IST)08 Oct 2020
KXIP 20/1 after 3

Rahul still more intent on seeing his way in. No boundaries from him yet. Big pressure on him to prove KXIP's problem is not scoreboard pressure. He's already run his most trusted partner - Mayank - out.

21:51 (IST)08 Oct 2020
KXIP 11/1 after 1.3

Disaster for KXIP! Mayank is run out. KL responded initially but then left Mayank stranded. The in-form Mayank is dismissed for 9. Simran Singh is KXIP's No.3.

21:15 (IST)08 Oct 2020
4th wicket - SRH 175/4 after 18

Just 4 runs off the 17th over. The run rate climbs into single digits for the first time since the Powerplay. Bishnoi continues in the 18th. It;s a dropped catch by Pooran. Samad lucky to survive. But he is out later in the over, caught at deep square leg. Bishnoi's third wicket. Priyam Garg in at 6. 4 wickets have now fallen for 13 runs in 2.5 overs.

21:05 (IST)08 Oct 2020
Pandey out for 1 - SRH 161/3 after 16.1

Arshdeep Singh bowls the 17th. And Manish Pandey is caught and bowled. Would you believe that! Three wickets in the space of seven balls after a desert-like 36.4 overs. Kane Williamson comes in at 5. Abdul Samad promoted up the order to join the Bairstow carnage, but the script has turned somewhat dramatically in the last few balls.

20:59 (IST)08 Oct 2020
Bairstow out for 97

Two wickets in the over! Ravi Bishnoi has provided KXIP manna from heaven. Two wickets in the space of three balls after 36.4 wicketless overs. Bairstow is gone for 97. SRH 160/2 after 15.4

20:46 (IST)08 Oct 2020
Bairstow into 90s - SRH 154/0 after 14

Shami back to bowl the 13th over, with KXIP not having taken a wicket for almost 40 overs now. Bairstow sends one rocket off to the mid off fence to whoosh into the 80s. (Just) 8 runs off Shami's over. Mujeeb, the most economical bowler so far, back to bowl his quota out in the 14th over. Warner gets to his 50 with a single. But it's a Bairstow show at the other end. Two sixes in the over take Bairstow into his 90s.

20:34 (IST)08 Oct 2020
Bairstow on 74 off 39 - SRH 130/0 after 12

Maxwell bowls the 11th over. And it's absolute carnage from Bairstow. Four. Six. Six. Bairstow whooshes into his 70s. 20 runs are plundered in Maxwell's over. Kings XI Punjab lost by 10 wickets in their last match and are still looking for their first wicket here. Big big test for KLR the captain. Arshdeep Singh bowls the 12th. 10 runs from it.
