After SRH captain Pat Cummins won the toss and elected to bat first, KKR bowlers took control of the game and virtually knocked the Orange Army out of the match.


  • 0.6
    Mitchell Starc bowled a peach of a delivery as he slanted a ball around the off-stump line after setting up Abhishek Sharma with balls that swung inwards. The wicket-taking delivery found its way back into him but at the last moment it shaped up late as Abhishek stood up and the ball hit the stump.
  • 1.6
    Travis Head was out next, again for a duck, while Vaibhav Arora bowled him with a standing seam and just outside the edge. The head stayed on the leg side and tried to get up on his toes, but ended up springing after trying to feel for the ball. Rahmanullah Gurbaz took a good catch behind the stumps.
  • 4.2
    Mitchell Starc struck again, throwing the ball up and swinging it away from the sideline. Rahul Tripathi decided to take a swipe over the line but was given an upper advantage. The ball is skied to mid-wicket as Ramandeep Singh settled down and took the catch with confidence.
  • 6.6
    Harshit Rana removed Nitish Kumar Reddy with another ripper of a delivery. He set up the SRH all-rounder brilliantly as he continued to bowl slower balls and then went for a fuller ball on stump. The ball swung away late after delivery as Nitish looked to drive straight through the line but was beaten by the late move. The ball hit the outside edge before landing straight into Rahmanullah Gurbaz’s mitts behind the stumps.
  • 10.2
    Andre Russell struck with the first ball in his first IPL final. The West Indian star struck when Aiden Markram ran out of patience. He arched his back and dug it in briefly as the SRH batsman stepped on his toes and pulled. However, the ball came in a little quicker than he expected as Markram ended up hitting the ball straight too long, where Mitchell Starc took an easy catch.
  • 11.5
    Varun Chakaravarthy joined in as he sent back Shahbaz Ahmed. The spinner bowled it fuller around as SRH got down on one knee and went for the sweep. He failed to roll his wrists over the ball and control the shot when he got a top edge. The ball lobbed tamely to short fine leg as Sunil Narine ran back a few steps and took the catch with ease.
  • 12.4
    Andre Russell then fired Abdul Samad, the Impact Sub. The star all-rounder threw the ball into the channel around it as the batsman appeared to drive it through the offside. He failed to get close to the pitch of the ball and ended up playing away from his body. The ball reached an outside edge as Rahmanullah Gurbaz took the catch quite easily.
  • 14.1
    Harshit Rana returned to take the wicket of the dangerous Heinrich Klaasen. The pacer rolled his fingers on the ball as the SRH keeper looked to go back over the bowler’s head with mid-circle. The ball caught the inside edge of the bat and rattled the stumps.
