That's it from us in our coverage of the Saturday double-header. We have Royal Challengers Bangalore eliminated from the race after their loss to Rajasthan Royals, who keep their campaign alive by a thread. Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, became the third team to enter the playoffs after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are still on top of the IPL 2018 points table. 

We have an exciting Sunday ahead of us, as the fate of Rajasthan and Kings XI Punjab depends on the result of the first match of the Sunday double-header, with Delhi Daredevils hosting Mumbai Indians at the Feroz Shah Kotla. A victory for Mumbai will most certainly confirm them as the fourth team into the knockout stage of the tournament. 

That, however, is another 15 hours away, and it's time for us to wrap up our coverage for now, as I bid you all good night on behalf of my colleague Shubham.

We have three teams who have qualified for this year's playoffs - SRH, CSK and KKR and two teams have already disqualified - DD and RCB.

We have three teams competing for one spot and here are the scenarios. 

1. MI - They need to beat DD
2. RR - DD beat MI and KXIP does not beat CSK by 53 runs or 38 balls to spare
3. KXIP - DD beat MI and they need to beat CSK by 53 runs and 38 balls to spare

If KKR want to finish at the second spot then CSK need to lose against KXIP by 76 runs or 50 balls to spare.

Chris Lynn is the Man of the Match for his 55 off 43 balls! 

Chris Lynn: We're building momentum nicely for the next few games. Finding my touch nicely and doing what's needed for the team. (On adapting to Indian conditions) It's tough. I find the hard way I suppose. The main thing as I said is partnerships. (On opening alongside Narine) It's good fun, and I've got the best seat in the house. It's pretty basic. He's a pretty cool character. Keep it nice and simple, couple of key messages. We've got some form, couple of wins on the board. Whatever's meant to be is meant to be. 

00:01 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: We need to keep striving for more. Happy to be in playoffs. In 14 games if it (team combination) does not settle, there must be something wrong. Good to see we are pulling things back. We were pushed to a corner and now we have made a comeback this way. 

23:55 (IST)

We talk about the winning habit, but SRH have picked up a bit of a losing habit. Three losses after their six wins, but they still finish the league phase on top of the table and earn themselves two shots at the final. That will most likely come though, against CSK, a team that has beaten them twice.

Kane Williamson, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain: Credit to the way KKR played they pulled things back nicely. Lot of character showed on the field by the guys. (On three successive losses) Don't think it really matters. You need to come out and play with freedom, stick to your plans. We would've loved to get across the line today, and it wasn't to be. Lot of the games we've lost just a fraction of the mark, and we would want to build on that. We looked on target to get a few more runs. We just needed that one partnership. That wasn't to be today. We've played on such a variety of surfaces, and adapting has been a challenge as well. There are a lot of positives, even though we've had a few losses. Not lot of bad stuff, just a couple of adjustments. We want to stay positive going into our next game.

On a not so ideal batting wicket, this has been a perfect run-chase by KKR against the best bowling side of the tournament. Everyone who have batted tonight, have done their part  Also, by doing this, they become the third team to qualify for the playoffs. Remember, Karthik's boys have won their last three matches and most likely they will play their playoff game at their den, Eden. So, watch out for the Knights who now have some sort of momentum with them.

KKR retained their West Indies stars, bought Lynn and Starc at a big price, invested in India U-19 players and did not have a captain after the auction but they believed and showed everyone that cricket is a team game. Here, they are into the play-offs of IPL 11.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders in Hyderabad, LIVE Updates and Scores: Bhuvi bowls the second last over and he started well with just 3 off the first three balls. Just 5 from the over and we go into the last over. Kolkata Knight Riders need 5 runs in 6 balls.

Preview: Eying a play-off berth, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will have their task cut out when they take on already-qualified table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Saturday.

KKR are placed third in the points table with seven wins in 13 outings. The Dinesh Karthik-led side will have to win to inch closer to a knockout spot.


Alongwith SRH, second placed Chennai Super Kings are already in the playoffs.

SRH will come into the clash on the back of a 14-run defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore in a high-scoring match on Thursday night.

Led by Kane Williamson, whose rousing 81 off 42 balls — his eighth fifty-plus score in IPL 2018 — almost won the game for SRH despite the stiff target of 219 set by Virat Kohli's RCB, the batting clicked on Thursday but their famed bowling took a beating.

The hosts will be eager to correct the flaws as they brace up to face another tough opposition.

SRH are likely to ring in a couple of changes and pacer Basil Thampi, who on Thursday bowled the most expensive four overs in the history of IPL, could be axed.

Thampi leaked 70 runs in his full quota of four overs, surpassing the previous record held by Ishant Sharma.

India opener Shikhar Dhawan missed out against RCB and will be keen to get a big one against the KKR.

Manish Pandey notched a half century against RCB and will look to continue in the same vein.

SRH rested pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar against RCB. Kumar could be back for the KKR game alongside Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul and Shakib Al Hasan.

For the visitors, chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav will be high on confidence after his career-best 4/20 against Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens in their last game.

The likes of Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine and skipper Dinesh Karthik will hold the key to KKR's fortunes.
