SunRisers Hyderabad beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 9 wickets with 5 overs to spare at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad in the first of two Indian Premier League (IPL) matches on Sunday. SRH return to the top four with this win, and they also have a game in hand over the other teams. As for KKR, this was their fifth consecutive defeat and their campaign is now in tatters. David Warner (67 off 38 balls) and Jonny Bairstow (80* off 43) put on their fourth 100+ stand of the season to thrash KKR. No KKR bowler was spared by the duo, but Sunil Narine (0/34 in 4 overs) and debutant Prithvi Raj Yarra (1/29 in 3 overs) were the bright spots for the visiting team. Being put into bat first, Kolkata Knight Riders scored 159/8 in their 20 overs. Sunil Narine (25 off 8 balls) launched an onslaught to give the visitors a great start, but eventually fell to Khaleel Ahmed (3/33), who also soon accounted for the wicket of Shubman Gill. He came back into the attack towards the end to also get the wicket of Chris Lynn (51), who played the role of the sheet anchor for KKR. Lynn and Rinku Singh (30 off 25 balls) put up a 51-run partnership in the middle overs. Andre Russell (15) hit two big sixes towards the end but perished in trying to hit a third. Rashid Khan (1/23) had not conceded a single boundary till his last over, and along with Khaleel Ahmed, was the pick of the SRH bowlers. (SCORECARD)

  • 19:13 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    That was over in a jiffy. SRH win by 9 wickets with 5 overs to spare. That's a proper thrashing.
  • 19:12 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Bairstow has seen enough. Follows the late cut with a monster six on the leg side.
  • 19:12 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Late cut from Bairstow again. 11 more runs to win.
  • 19:09 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
  • 19:09 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Williamson and Bairstow content to move the score along in ones and twos now. Need just 18 more runs. 
  • 19:05 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    22 more runs for SRH to win this match. It has been a while since this ceased to be a contest though.
  • 19:01 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Williamson has not had much joy this IPL season. With the pressure off, could this be his chance to get back some touch?
  • 19:00 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Prithvi Raj finally gets something going his way. Breaks Warner's stumps. His first IPL wicket. Warner goes for 67. 
  • 18:59 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Bairstow dropped for the third time this match. Piyush Chawla the fielder. Prithvi Raj Yarra cannot believe his luck. He is on the ground in disbelief. Bairstow must be in disbelief as well.
  • 18:56 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    That reprieve for Bairstow seems to have woken Warner up, who decides he wants to finish this off quickly. 16 runs off Narine's over. SRH need 30 runs to win in 8 overs.
  • 18:55 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    What a day for KKR! A second sitter missed. Harry Gurney the truant fielder this time. Bairstow the lucky batsman again.
  • 18:54 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
  • 18:53 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Five runs of Prithvi Raj's second over. SRH can afford to take it a little slow now.
  • 18:50 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Almost got Bairstow in his first over. But also leaked 16 runs. Can he redeem himself in his second?
  • 18:47 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
  • 18:46 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    The SRH dugout stands up in applause. SRH 106/0 now. Need just 54 more runs with 10 overs left.
  • 18:44 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    42nd IPL fifty for the Australian.
  • 18:43 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Both batsmen are on 49 off 27 deliveries each. Warner and Bairstow showing some perfect synchronicity.
  • 18:42 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Another 100 stand between these SRH openers. Bairstow nearing his 2nd IPL fifty. Remember, he was dropped on 1 by Cariappa. Warner also nearing the landmark.
  • 18:41 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Beautiful late cut from Bairstow for four. Karthik watches that go past him and also maybe KKR's chances of qualifying for the playoffs.
  • 18:40 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Cariappa not having much joy with his second opportunity either. Gave away 20 runs in his first over. 
  • 18:39 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Not the cleanest shot of the day but Bairstow gets some bat onto that and runs it down to fine leg for four. SRH 88/0 after 8 overs.
  • 18:35 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    The required rate has been brought down to 6 as a result of this onslaught by Warner and Bairstow. KKR captain Dinesh Karthik will be struggling for ideas.
  • 18:33 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Russell goes for runs as well. 
  • 18:31 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Did not have much impact with the bat today. Can the big man pull off a miracle with the ball?
  • 18:28 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    20 runs off Cariappa's over. KKR's new boys Cariappa and Prithvi Raj have gone for a combined 36 runs in 2 overs.
  • 18:27 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Straight down the ground this time. Warner is having a party off Cariappa's bowling.
  • 18:25 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Smashed on the leg side. Follows it up with a four.
  • 18:25 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Cariappa stops in his run up. Had an opportunity to run out non-striker. Bairstow, who made no attempt to get back. Lets it go though.
  • 18:23 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Narine manages to get Warner in trouble with one ball. Ball just misses the off stump though. That was probably the first uncomfortable moment for Warner today.
  • 18:21 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Sunil Narine also gets smashed. Fifty partnership comes up between the openers in no time.
  • 18:18 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    At this rate, the only contest in this match will soon come down to who scores more between Warner and Bairstow. KKR need a breakthrough!
  • 18:17 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Chawls smashed on the leg side. Score moving along handsomely.
  • 18:15 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Piyush Chawla bowled two dot balls to start off but then concedes a boundary. Batsmen not reading Chawla as well as they were reading the seamers though. Could KKR's spin trio be the team's saviour today?
  • 18:14 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    10 runs off Gurney's over. SRH batsmen not giving KKR bowlers any inches yet.
  • 18:10 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Gurney back to bowl his second over. Warner makes room and lofts the ball over the inner circle into the cover boundary.
  • 18:08 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    16 runs come off Prithvi Raj's first over in the IPL. SRH 22/0 after 2 overs. How different the score would have read if Cariappa had not dropped that catch.
  • 18:07 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Costly costly mistake from Cariappa in the deep. Bairstow offered a lifeline there, hit that straight to the fielder, but Cariappa somehow drops that. Could have been such a morale booster for Prithvi Raj too.
  • 18:05 (IST)Apr 21, 2019
    Warner does not take much time trying to figure out this IPL debutant. Goes for a maximum down the ground on the second ball.
