Hardik Pandya's third consecutive half-century saw GT register a total of 156/9, while Andre Russell took four wickets for just five runs in an incredible 20th over. However, KKR faltered in their chase and Russell's 25-ball 48 was not enough to take them over the line.

Abhishek Sharma then smashed 47 off 28 as SRH made short work of the chase, winning by nine wickets in eight overs.
