Time for us to wrap up here. Sunrisers Hyderabad has turned it around from a week ago after losing to Kings XI Punjab in Mohali they have managed to protect their fortress by defending another low score of 132. Kings XI Punjab were abysmal in the field dropping four simplest of chances that will hurt them a lot along with some mindless batting. 

Sunrisers equal Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab on 10 points, but they topple Kings XI from the second spot on better NRR, though CSK have played one game lesser. For tomorrow we have a new captain in Shreyas Iyer for Delhi Daredevils taking on Kolkata Knight Riders. Will the change in leadership bring a change in their fortunes? Join us for the game at our live coverage, until then goodbye and take care!

Ankit Rajpoot:I don't think so it is easy. Everyone practices and everyone is hardworking. The wicket was assisting and had planned it well, I was bowling it full and bowled at pace. It was my day so I got five wickets. 

23:58 (IST)

Kane Williamson, SRH captain: Today 145 would have been competitive total but Punjab bowled well and restricted us but boys played hard today. It's nice to defend these totals. We want to continue that. We wanted to be really smart with the bat. It is about getting the right total. There is a small margin for us as a batting unit. The bowlers have been operating very nicely. We were very fortunate with our bowling depth. With injuries, guys have been coming in and bowling well. You always want more on the board but guys have been fantastic. Lot of credit goes to the way guys bowled. Yes, it was a difficult surface.

Stunning fightback by Sunrisers Hyderabad! Their bowlers turn heroes for one more night!

Remember: No Warner. No Bhuvi. No Stanlake. Still they pull this off. Sign Rashid Khan and Kane Williamson for the redux of Prison Break please. The story of the night has to be Rashid Khan's come back, after being hammered by Gayle the last time these two teams met. It was also good captaincy, with Williamson using other bowlers against Gayle.  Also, that scratchy innings by Mansih Pandey proving really valuable now.

Ravichandran Ashwin, KXIP captain: We should have really won this game. Not the greatest of wicket, was a bit tough. It can happen in this format. These sort of games usually happen in IPL. We let ourselves  down in the field. It is always difficult to catch under the lights. There are no excuses , we have to put it behind and come back harder. Looking at the loss, this break is a good thing. Rashid bowled very well,. he is a world class bowler. 



IPL 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab at Hyderabad, latest update and cricket score: Mujeeb runs a leg bye off the first ball but Rajpoot trying to win the match with the bat after a fabulous effort with the ball, tried to play the scoop, exposing his stumps, with the ball bowled straight and full and Thampi hits the middle stump. Sunrisers Hyderabad has done it twice in three days! First they beat MI by 31 runs defending 118, now defended 132 runs winning by 13 runs! Despite a wonderful start by Chris Gayle and KL Rahul the Kings XI panicked and choked against some accurate SRH bowling.

Preview: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be aiming to outsmart each other and continue their winning run when they face-off in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Thursday.

A rampant Punjab has won five of its six league games while Hyderabad have managed to carve out four victories from six games, standing third in the league points-table.

srh 380Punjab openers KL Rahul and Chris Gayle have been a major reason behind their success. While Rahul has accumulated 236 runs from six games, the Caribbean self-proclaimed "Universe Boss" has amassed 229 runs from just three matches.

Gayle however, missed the previous match against Delhi Daredevils due to fitness issues and his absence was clearly felt in Punjab's opening. If the 38-year-old returns for Thursday's game, it will be again be a threat to the opponent's bowling.

Karun Nair has also been impressive after 173 runs from five innings but veteran Yuvraj Singh, Aaron Finch and Mayank Agarwal are yet to make their presence felt in the middle.

The trio's poor form could be a cause of concern for the team management, keeping in view Hyderabad's decent bowling attack.

In the bowling department, all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, along with Mohit Sharma add depth to the line-up. Also, medium pacers Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye and Afghan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman shoulder the bowling responsibility.

On the other hand, Sunrisers have their tails up after defending a paltry 118 against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday.

The Sunrisers' bowlers dished out a superb performance to trigger a batting collapse of Mumbai and eventually defend the total by 31 runs at the packed Wankhede Stadium.

Earlier, the Kane Williamson-led side kicked-off their campaign in an impressive way with three wins on the trot but later suffered successive defeats to Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings.

Williamson has been in good touch and has carried the batting on his shoulders. The New Zealand batter has amassed 259 runs from six games.

However, Shikhar Dhawan and Wridhiman Saha, have not given the required support to Hyderabad's batting.

Saha has been below par with the bat with just 62 runs while Dhawan has been a bit better with 135 runs from five innings.

Yusuf Pathan had shown glimpses of his old attacking batting against Rajasthan Royals with a quick 27-ball 45, but failed to repeat the show against Mumbai.

Hyderabad's strength mostly relies on their bowlers, who didn't let Bhuvneshwar Kumar's absence be felt in the game against the Rohit Sharma-led side.

Bhuvneshwar has scalped six wickets from four games, with an economy under seven.

Spinners Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan have also bagged six wickets each from as many games while medium pacer Siddarth Kaul has been the most impressive with nine wickets from six games.

Another medium pacer Basil Thampi, who featured in just a game for Hyderabad, came out with a clinical show against Mumbai. The 24-year-old picked two wickets conceding just four runs from 1.5 overs.

However, pacer Billy Stanlake, who has been in good touch in the ongoing edition with five wickets from four games, has been ruled out of the remaianing season after a fracture in his finger.

Overall, it will be Punjab's batting versus Hyderabad's bowling when the two sides square-off on Thursday.
