Highlights, IPL 2021, SRH vs PBKS Full Cricket Score: Punjab beat Hyderabad in last-over thriller

Live Score SRH vs PBKS, IPL 2021, Today's Match: Nathan Ellis to bowl the final over. Bhuvneshwar misses the first delivery, but he doesn't care, he's already off and sprinting. Holder on strike. He needs 16 from 5 to win it. Oof, that's a terrible decision from Ellis, it's got good length on it and Holder sends it looping away for a six over long-on. Ellis needs something different. He comes up with something different, it's a slower, shorter and wider ball that looks a bit inelegant, but denies Holder the opportunity to hit. It's a dot. Another dot, it's a slightly wider yorker. Wide. Holder then runs a double. 7 runs needed off the last ball. A six will be a super over. Holder has only one choice really, he needs to get it up and over the boundary rope. Ellis has a few choices at his disposal. What kind of delivery will he go for? It's a low full toss, and Holder can't get enough on it! It falls well short of the boundary rope, and the Punjab Kings win by five runs.

That's it from us folks!

What a match that was! Though there weren't an incredible amount of runs in it, it was a very close affair, especially towards the end as Jason Holder tried his best to single-handedly drag Sunrisers Hyderabad to a win. The Punjab Kings, however, had enough in their tank to defend their total of 125 and win by a fairly narrow margin of five runs! It's the end of tonight's action, but do make sure to tune back in tomorrow, as we bring you all the latest updates from a weekend double header which will see CSK take on KKR, before RCB face MI!

KL Rahul: Nerve-wracking, but I think I'm used to this now! I hope the TRPs are up because of us, because we're playing some entertaining cricket, and we've been doing that for the last two or three years.

I think Jason Holder played really well, he's had a fantastic game. He picked up important wickets, and then he came and batted really well too. It was a pitch where you needed powerful batters, and he was one of the few players that I felt could generate some pace out there. A batter like me, I didn't really feel like I could clear the field. It was important for Chris and Nicholas to get stuck in, we were hoping our runs would come from there, but that didn't really happen. Still, we're happy with the win. 

I think today's win gives us the belief that no matter what position we're in, if we put a decent total on the board our bowlers can get the opposition out and we can build pressure. Shami started off really well and we got Warner and Williamson out early which it made it easier for our spinners to come in, settle and then pick up a couple of wickets. A lesson for the batters will be to understand that it's not a 160-170 run wicket, and to not play too many shots. 

Harpreet Brar is a brilliant all-round cricketer, he can field, he can hit the ball and finish. With the ball, he has great control. He's not easy to step out and hit. He's a tall bowler, and if the pitch helps him, he's a very difficult player to face. He loves a challenge, every time I need him he says, "Paaji aap tension mat lo, mai run nahi dunga." (Don't worry, I won't give away runs) That's the attitude I saw in him and Arshdeep, and that's why I recruited them. 

23:31 (IST)

Jason Holder: "Tough loss. We left a little bit too much in the back end to do. It was good to get a good start [with the ball]. We have five games left and these are important games for us. Fans have always been behind us, so we got to play for them."

23:28 (IST)

Jason Holder is the Player of the Match for taking three wickets and scoring 47 not out off 29

Finally! 

23:19 (IST)

Very unlike Sharjah! 

23:17 (IST)

Very exciting! 

23:15 (IST)

Kane Williamson: I think our bowling and fielding unit did a fantastic job. Clearly the surface was a tough on to bat on. We needed to build partnerships, though we knew it wasn't going to be easy. We were backing ourselves to get close to the target, but in the end it took a bit of individual brilliance from Jason Holder in both halves of the game to keep the match competitive. This is a proud franchise, so it's been a frustrating season but we need to look for areas to improve on now, and do that as soon as possible.

I suppose we tried to learn a few lessons from the first half when we went out to bat. We were looking to build a few platforms, which was challenging. To get ourselves into a position to win the match but without wickets in hand is one of the disappointing things about the innings. We come again though, the challenge is to pick ourselves up and come into the next match with a fresh perspective and some freedom. Having said that, we've had a mixture of surfaces so far, so smart cricket has to come into it to. We'll keep challenging every team we face, because we know we've got it in us.

23:12 (IST)

We too! 

23:10 (IST)

What a win!

Preview: In Punjab Kings' last match, pace bowler Kartik Tyagi defended four off the last over as they were edged out by Rajasthan Royals.

Needing 18 off 18 balls, Punjab lost their way and Tyagi gave away just one run and took two wickets in the 20th over to keep the opposition down to 183-4 while chasing 186 in Dubai.

Rajasthan, who come into the revived Twenty20 tournament in the United Arab Emirates without their key England imports, posted 185 with Yashasvi Jaiswal top-scoring with 49.

England players including Ben Stokes (mental health break), Jofra Archer (injured) and Jos Buttler (personal reasons) are missing from the Royals' team.

But Tyagi and fellow quick Mustafizur Rahman, who gave away just four runs in the 19th over, kept Rajasthan in the hunt for the play-offs as they stayed fifth in the eight-team table.

Meanwhile, in Sunrisers Hyderabad's last encounter, they were handed an eight-wicket defeat by the Delhi Capitals.

South African bowlers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada helped set up the win for Delhi Capitals in an Indian Premier League match that went ahead despite a Sunrisers Hyderabad player testing positive for coronavirus.

Hyderabad left-arm quick Thangarasu Natarajan and six of his close contacts were isolated hours before the latest match in the Twenty20 tournament in Dubai.

An IPL release said Natarajan is "currently asymptomatic" while the contacts and other Hyderabad players all returned negative tests.

On the field, Nortje returned figures of 2-12 and fellow Proteas quick Rabada took three wickets to further hurt Hyderabad who managed just 134-9 after electing to bat.
