IPL 2017, Highlights KXIP vs SRH in Mohali, cricket scores and updates: SRH beat KXIP by 26 runs
  • 00:37 (IST)

    It was crucial win for SRH as they continue to venture in the top four spots in the table. Hosts KXIP have a bit of a thinking to do. That's it from us, thank you for following Firstpost, we will be back with scores and updates from tomorrow's double header

    Once again a poor bowling and fielding performance has let Kings XI down. 190 was par on this pitch with even pace and bounce but they allowed SRH to get away. Had they restricted SRH to 190 it would have been game on, alas their bowling is a glaring weakness and one that doesn't look like going away anytime soon. Guptill started with a bang before being deceived by a Bhuvi slower ball and Marsh was fantastic, the only real shining light for the Kings. So once again back to the drawing board for the Punjab side, they need to find a solution to their bowling woes, and quickly.

    Glenn Maxwell on KXIP's loss: We didn't execute our plans well especially with the ball. If you ball both sides of the wicket, then good players  are going to punish you. We also lost too many wickets at the start. You need to have wickets in hand in the last ten overs. We will now get back to our basics for the next game

    ALL OVER! Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Kings XI Punjab by 26 runs

    Great all-round performance from the defending champions. It was their top order that set up the win for them. David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson all getting half centuries. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan starred with the ball as KXIP always remained behind their opponents on the day

  • 23:29 (IST)

  • 23:26 (IST)

    OUT! Mohit Sharma 2 (4) b Ashish Nehra c Deepak Hooda

  • 23:25 (IST)

  • 23:24 (IST)

    After 19 overs,Kings XI Punjab 175/7 ( Anureet Singh 14 , Mohit Sharma 2)

    Just going through the motions here. Bhuvneshwar Kumar finishes with yet another excellent spell. The game is well and truly up. 

  • 23:21 (IST)

    After 18 overs,Kings XI Punjab 167/7 ( Anureet Singh 8 , Mohit Sharma 0)

    Nine runs come off that Sidharth Kaul over, but it's clearly not enough for the hosts. The wicket of Axar Patel all but killed any hopes of KXIP recording a miraculous win. 

  • 23:18 (IST)

    OUT! Axar Patel 16 (9) b Sidharth Kaul c David Warner

  • 23:14 (IST)

    After 17 overs,Kings XI Punjab 158/6 ( Axar Patel 13 , Anureet Singh 2)

    Axar Patel providing some fight for kXIP that just about keeps them alive in this game. 12 runs off the over from Nehra who has been a bit expensive today

  • 23:10 (IST)

  • 23:09 (IST)

    After 16 overs,Kings XI Punjab 146/6 ( Axar Patel 2 , Anureet Singh 1)

    Fantastic and perhaps match-clinching over from Bhuvneshwar Kumar who got rid off the dangerous Shaun Marsh with a clever slower one. ANureet Singh and Axar Patel both new batsmen at the crease were unable to get the wily Bhuvneshwar away. KXIP need 62 runs to win from 4 overs

  • 23:08 (IST)

    Bhuvi returns and dismisses Kings XI's last hope with a knuckle ball, the same way Marsh was dismissed by AJ Tye against Gujarat! The fact Warner can rely on his main quick to come back and get him a wicket when needed is the difference between the two sides. There is no seamer in the Kings XI attack that Maxwell could rely on to deliver when it counts, and it's killed KXIP all season long. 

  • 23:05 (IST)

    KXIP need 64 runs from 26 deliveries with four wickets in hand

  • 23:04 (IST)

    OUT! Shaun Marsh 84 (50) b Bhuvneshwar Kumar c Deepak Hooda

  • 23:00 (IST)

    Marsh is playing a fantastic innings, unfortunately he's receiving no support as now Saha departs as well. Kings XI are losing wickets at regular intervals which is making this big chase near impossible. It's a good pitch, made for high scoring cricket, but this total looks to be out of Kings XI's reach unless Marsh can pull off a miracle. 

  • 23:00 (IST)

    After 15 overs,Kings XI Punjab 138/5 ( Shaun Marsh 80 , )

    Shaun Marsh has kept KXIP’s head afloat. A boundary followed by a six off Sidharth Kaul put the bowler under pressure. But it seemed the pressure was transmitted to the entire team when Warner dropped Marsh in the deep and also allowing the ball to go for a boundary. Sidharth Kaul then showed more nerves as he sent down a no ball. The young pacer though reacted well and bowled a really good Yorker on the free-hit delivery before cleaning up Saha with an inswinger. on the last ball

  • 22:58 (IST)

    OUT! Wriddhiman Saha 2 (4) b Sidharth Kaul

  • 22:57 (IST)

  • 22:56 (IST)

  • 22:56 (IST)

    DROPPED! Now Warner puts down Shaun Marsh

  • 22:53 (IST)

    After 14 overs,Kings XI Punjab 121/4 ( Shaun Marsh 65 , Wriddhiman Saha (W) 1)

    Rashid Khan starts off the over removing the dangerous Eoin Morgan and gets a well-deserved wicket. Wriddhiman Saha walks out to the crease. Shaun Marsh makes it a respectable over for KXIP with a boundary off the last ball

  • 22:51 (IST)

    Rashid Khan has been wonderful, proving an absolute handful and Morgan's miserable tournament continues. Seems to be struggling when the ball is turning. Khan doing what none of the Kings XI bowlers could do - keeping it tight while being a constant wicket taking threat. Seems like bowling is once again going to let the Kings down. 

  • 22:51 (IST)

    OUT! Eoin Morgan 26 (21) b Rashid Khan c Deepak Hooda

  • 22:50 (IST)

  • 22:50 (IST)

    After 13 overs,Kings XI Punjab 115/3 ( Shaun Marsh 60 , Eoin Morgan 26)

    A huge over for KXIP. 19 runs come off that Moises Henriques over. Eoin Morgan starts it off with a six before Shaun Marsh ends the over with three boundaries. He gets very lucky though as Deepak Hoods drops a sitter in the deep

  • 22:47 (IST)

    DROPPED! Deepak Hooda drops Shaun Marsh in the deep

  • 22:45 (IST)

    After 12 overs,Kings XI Punjab 96/3 ( Shaun Marsh 48 , Eoin Morgan 19)

    Another fine over from Rashid Khan as he gave away just eight runs off his over despite being hit for a boundary off the first ball. Morgan especially has struggled against him. Rashid's spell could be the difference in the end

  • 22:41 (IST)

    After 11 overs,Kings XI Punjab 88/3 ( Shaun Marsh 42 , Eoin Morgan 17)

    Good over for KXIP as Eoin Morgan who looked much at ease against pace started off the over with two cracking boundaries. That would have done him a world of good. 12 runs from the over remain below the required rate though, but can SRh use this as a springboard?

  • 22:38 (IST)

    After 10 overs,Kings XI Punjab 76/3 ( Shaun Marsh 40 , Eoin Morgan 7)

    Rashid Khan is all over the KXIP batsmen who are struggling to read him. Eoin Morgan who has scored 7 runs off 11 balls needed four deliveries to get a single and get off strike. Shaun Marsh who looked so dangerous against the pacers too has been found wanting against Rashid. Just one run off the over. Massive one for SRH

  • 22:36 (IST)

    Marsh, Morgan, Saha and Axar are capable of chasing this down, especially with the ball skidding on to the bat nicely. How they negotiate Rashid Khan will go a long way to deciding this match as his variations are hard to pick, and neither Marsh nor Morgan seem to have a read on him. Finishing against Bhuvi at the death may also be tough so Kings XI will have to find bowlers to target, most likely Negra and Kaul. 

  • 22:33 (IST)

    After 9 overs,Kings XI Punjab 75/3 ( Shaun Marsh 40 , Eoin Morgan 6)

    Sidharth Kaul with another good over. SRH are pulling things back after a mini-onlsaught from Marsh. Good variations in length from the young pacer. KXIP have mountain to climb

  • 22:28 (IST)

    After 8 overs,Kings XI Punjab 70/3 ( Shaun Marsh 38 , Eoin Morgan 3)

    Rashid Khan into the attack for SRH and straightway he caused problems for the KXIP batsmen. Shaun Marsh who going great guns was made to rethink his approach against the young spinner. The Australian couldn't come down the track against Rashid due to his pace and found it hard to read the Afghan spinner. Good over for SRH

  • 22:25 (IST)

    Marsh looking in good touch but it's already a huge ask for him and Morgan. Once again Kings XI have struggled in the powerplay, this time losing too many wickets. No idea what Maxwell was doing, trying to be far too cute instead of punishing a short legside delivery. He's looked good with a few 40s this IPL but for his team to be successful they need the skipper to make a more meaningful contribution. 

  • 22:24 (IST)

    After 7 overs,Kings XI Punjab 67/3 ( Shaun Marsh 38 , Eoin Morgan 2)

    Moises Henriques into the attack for SRH and he bowled a fairly decent over apart from the first ball which Shaun Marsh smashed for a boundary. Eoin Morgan struggled a bit with his timing allowing KXIP to take just 8 runs from that over

  • 22:20 (IST)

    After 6 overs,Kings XI Punjab 59/3 ( Shaun Marsh 32 , Eoin Morgan 0)

    Deepak Hooda surprisingly given the ball to bowl the last over of the PowerPlay and Shaun Marsh who had looked good for KXIp to that point made the most of it, smashing 17 runs of the over that included a big six down the ground. KXIP end PowerPlay just one run behind SRH, but have lost three more wickets

  • 22:19 (IST)

  • 22:17 (IST)

    After 5 overs,Kings XI Punjab 42/3 ( Shaun Marsh 15 , )

    Sidharth Kaul came into the attack for SRH and bowled a gem of an over. Apart from Glenn Maxwell's wicket that he picked on the last ball, he almost had Shaun Marsh who top-edged a well-executed bouncer before. SRH on top in this game

  • 22:17 (IST)

  • 22:15 (IST)

    OUT! Glenn Maxwell 0 (2)  b Siddharth Kaul c Ashish Nehra

  • 22:12 (IST)

    After 4 overs,Kings XI Punjab 37/2 ( Shaun Marsh 10 , Glenn Maxwell (C) 0)

    Another successful over for SRH, but not before Shaun Marsh hit him for couple of boundaries. However those fours don't hurt SRH as long as they keep takig wickets. Glenn Maxwell comes to the middle

  • 22:08 (IST)

    OUT! Manan Vohra 3 (6) b Ashish Nehra c Siddharth Kaul

  • 22:06 (IST)

    Seems like I cursed Guptill! Great bowling by Bhuvi. Still, the initial point stands that Guptill has to be in the team because of the kind of impetus he can provide an innings. Kings XI haven't been off to the best starts and Guptill is the kind of player who can put the opposition on the back foot. Big job now for Marsh and Vohra, they can't afford to eat up deliveries with the asking rate always climbing. Pitch still seems good. 

  • 22:05 (IST)

    After 3 overs,Kings XI Punjab 28/1 ( Manan Vohra 3 , Shaun Marsh 1)

    Good comeback from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He got rid off the dangerous Martin Guptill, who was looking very ominous for SRH. The important thing for the Indian pacer that he kept it very tight for the rest of the over and didn't allow KXIP to continue that momentum. Shan Marsh came to the crease and had to be content with a single. Just three runs off it

Preview: Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will aim to consolidate their stay in their top three positions of the Indian Premier League (IPL) standings when they take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in an away game at the I.S. Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Friday.

With just three wins from seven matches, the home side are currently placed fifth, one short of where they would at least like to be at the end of the league format.

The David Warner-led Hyderabad have won four of eight games so far and have shared the points in a rain-abandoned outing against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.

In their home match against Punjab this season, Hyderabad secured a five-run win while defending a modest total of 159 runs.

Hyderabad will once again hope their openers Warner (235 from 7 games) and Shikhar Dhawan (282 from 7 games) score the bulk of runs while the middle order comprising Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Naman Ojha, Deepak Hooda play the long handle when the situation demands.

The visitors have an equally potent bowling attack, with Purple Cap holder medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (16 wickets) and young Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan (10 wickets) leading the department.

On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab will be hoping for another sublime score from opener Hashim Amla, who can take the attack to the opposition camp.

KXIP scored a near-200 total (198) against the Mumbai Indians with Amla scoring a terrific hundred and skipper Glenn Maxwell also hitting some lusty blows. In the middle order, David Miller, Wriddhiman Saha, Shaun Marsh and all-rounder Axar Patel can smash the bowlers all around the park.

The hosts will, however, need to rethink on their bowling strategy with the likes of medium pacers Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma failing to provide the early breakthroughs although Axar, with his left-arm spin has been economical in the middle overs.

Squads:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (Captain), Tanmay Agarwal, Ricky Bhui, Bipul Sharma, Ben Cutting, Shikhar Dhawan, Eklavya Dwivedi, Moises Henriques, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ben Laughlin, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mohammad Nabi, Mohammed Siraj, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra, Naman Ojha (WK), Rashid Khan, Vijay Shankar, Barinder Sran, Pravin Tambe, Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh.

Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (Captain), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, K.C. Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma.
