19:04 (IST)

That's it from this match, do switch over to the second match of the day where KKR have won the toss and elected to bowl against CSK at the Wankhede Stadium. Goodbye and take care.

18:58 (IST)

A good all-round performance from SRH. They read and adapted well to the wicket. The bowlers relied on cutters and slower ones on a sluggish track to restrict a dangerous PBKS batting line-up to just 120. PBKS didn't adapt to the pitch and conditions, their shot selection was poor and they kept losing wickets at regular intervals which is why they never attained momentum. The SRH batsmen, on the other hand, played sensibly. Didn't go for expansive shots, dealt in singles and twos and got the job done without much fuss.

Jonny Bairstow is the Player of the Match

18:54 (IST)

That's it! SRH win by 9 wickets. Arshdeep bowls a wide to gift the winning run. SRH finally get off the mark in the points table after three losses in the first three games. 

18:53 (IST)

Dropped! Another half chance goes a begging. Bairstow thumps it uppishly to mid off, it's powerfully hit. Hood moves to his right but couldn't hold on to it as the power in the shot gets the better of him.

18:52 (IST)
six

SIX! That's the body blow. Bairstow stays in his crease and thumps a cutter wide of long on for a flat six. Just 4 needed off 10 now.

18:51 (IST)

After 18 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 111/1 ( Jonny Bairstow (W) 54 , Kane Williamson 16)

An eventful over there. Bairstow started off with a four. Then got beaten. Then there was a mix-up with Williamson almost halfway down but the fielder couldn't gather the ball. Bairstow then chips one uppishly wide of long on for a couple. And follows up with a single to make it 7 off the over. SRH need 10 off 12 balls.

18:49 (IST)
four

FOUR! Fifty for Bairstow. It's short and Bairstow pulls it over backward square leg for four. It releases the pressure as well.

18:47 (IST)

Hooda back into the attack...

18:45 (IST)

After 17 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 104/1 ( Jonny Bairstow (W) 47 , Kane Williamson 16)

A decent over from M Ashwin. He started off dropping a couple a touch short but then corrected and pitched it up further. Just three runs off it. 17 needed off 18. Is this getting a bit trickier?

18:41 (IST)

M Ashwin back on...

IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): A good all-round performance from SRH. They read and adapted well to the wicket. The bowlers relied on cutters and slower ones on a sluggish track to restrict a dangerous PBKS batting line-up to just 120. PBKS didn't adapt to the pitch and conditions, their shot selection was poor and they kept losing wickets at regular intervals which is why they never attained momentum. The SRH batsmen, on the other hand, played sensibly. Didn't go for expansive shots, dealt in singles and twos and got the job done without much fuss.

Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad face Punjab Kings in the first match of Wednesday's double-header at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Punjab Kings (PBKS), led by KL Rahul, are one place above the bottom-placed SRH with one victory in three matches. It's going to be a hard-fought battle in Chennai as both teams are desperate to attain the winning momentum.

For SRH, the main problem is their middle-order. The issue was there in last season as well but still they made it to the playoffs. This time, Warner and the team management will find it tough to make it to the playoffs if they don't fix their issues sooner. Three bad defeats is not the kind of start they would've envisaged but they still got 11 matches to play.

Against Punjab, SRH could look at the option of choosing Kedar Jadhav who has experience of playing in the middle-order. He also needs to prove a point after SRH bought him for Rs 2 crore in the auction despite having a bad season last time around in the UAE.

Kane Williamson could be a big positive for Hyderabad but it's not clear whether he's fit to play the match.

Meanwhile, Rahul's team will likely see changes in the playing XI as they move from Mumbai to Chennai. The foreign pacers – Riley Meredith and Jhye Richardson have gone for runs in the previous matches and considering the nature of the track in Chennai, they will have to depend on spinners. There's some pressure on Rahul as well with regard to his strike-rate. It'll be interesting to see how he responds with the bat on Wednesday.

IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, CSK vs SRH (Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hydrebad): MS Dhoni tosses the coin, but SRH win the toss and David Warner decides to bat first. "It looks like a different surface than we expected. The pitch has a nice grass covering, we are looking to put runs on the board and win. Two changes - Abhishek Sharma and Virat Singh make way for Manish Pandey and Sandeep Sharma," said Warner. MS Dhoni said he would have bowled anyway. "We were looking to bowl first. There is grass but the pitch looks tacky. There was a lot of dew last evening, and whenever there's dew, we prefer to bowl first. Lungi Ngidi and Moin Ali come back in playing 11 for Bravo and Tahir," said MSD at the toss.
