Live Cricket Score KXIP vs SRH, IPL 2019 Live Match: They should have won and they did win but boy, did Punjab make a royal mess of a simple run chase. At the second strategic break, with 32 needed from 4 overs and 9 wickets in hand, it should not have gone down to 11 required in the final over. However, Rahul kept his cool in the end and saw his team through. The second-wicket stand of 114 between Rahul and Agarwal never let them be in the game and the last few moments were just because Punjab lost their cool. Sandeep Sharma was excellent with his 2/21 in his 4 overs while Rashid gave just 20 runs in his 4 but just took the solitary wicket of Gayle. Wickets were needed in heaps and that, Hyderabad did not get. At the end, Punjab cruised to victory with a 6-wicket win over Hyderabad. (LIVE MATCH SCORECARD)

23.42 IST: That's the match! Rahul has seen his side through and taken them over the finish line.
23.40 IST: Mohammad Nabi to Lokesh Rahul, FOUR! Just 2 needed now! Cometh the hour, cometh the man! Rahul has taken all the prressure off and hit a superb boundary. Full on off, no spin on it. Rahul slaps it straight over the bowler's head and wide of long off for a boundary.
23.36 IST: Sam Curran walks in. A massive last over at stake. That day he was bowling. Tonight, he will be batting. Punjab need 11 to win. Will they go through? Or a Super Over is in store? Big gamble. Mohammad Nabi to bowl.
23.31 IST: Bowls it on the fifth stump line, Mandeep flat-bats it towards cover and gets to the other end. He is off the mark.
* Mandeep Singh is in. Siddarth Kaul has been given the ball. Risky...
23.26 IST: OUT! Miller departs too! Is there a twist in the tale? Full and outside off, David looks to swing hard but is done in by the off-cutter. The shot comes before the ball and it goes off the top edge. Simple catch for David Hooda at long on. Excellent over from Sandeep - 3 runs and 2 wickets from it. 16 needed from 2 overs. Do we have a close finish? Sandeep removes Miller for 1. KXIP 135/3 in 18 overs
23.21 IST: OUT! Sandeep removes Mayank for 55! Agarwal holes out. Just moments before the game could have been done. Not a great delivery, not a bad shot, just the execution was not that great. Short ball, outside off, coming in, Agarwal looks to pull but the extra bounce does him in. Drags it to deep mid-wicket where Vijay Shankar takes a simple catch. Fine knock and end of a terrific stand. 19 needed from 17. Not a collapse, surely? KXIP 132/2 in 17.1 overs
23.18 IST: FOUR! Good effort from Manish Pandey but to no avail. Fuller length ball on middle and leg, Rahul lofts it over mid on. Manish Pandey runs to his left to stop the ball. He gets there and gets to the ball but cannot stop it from touching the rope. KXIP 131/1 in 16.4 overs
23.16 IST: Kaul to Mayank, FIFTY! Mayank scores his fifth IPL fifty. This has been a superb knock from him. Punjab needed a match-winning knock from him. He gets there by flicking it to deep square leg. KXIP 126/1 in 16.2 overs
23.15 IST: Kaul to Mayank, SIX! Gone and the dropped catch is proving costly here. Mayank on 49 now. As a fast bowler you hate being hit over your head for a maximum but Agarwal does not care and hits Sandeep straight over his head for a maximum. He moves to 49 with that sweet strike. KXIP 125/1 in 16.1 overs
23.09 IST: Bhuvneshwar to Mayank, DROPPED! That could have been a game changer and Yusuf drops a sitter. Another revival for Mayank. Hyderabad desperately needed a wicket and they have dropped a dolly. Shorter ball on off, Mayank goes for the uppercut. He gets no timing on it and it goes straight to Yusuf at third man. The ball goes in and out of his hand. KXIP 116/1 in 15.5 overs
* Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back on. 3-0-17-0 so far.
23.01 IST: Full toss. You need to have a very good luck to get wicket off it. It is on the pads, Agarwal lofts it towards mid-wicket. He hardly times it but gets a single.
22.58 IST: FOUR AND FIFTY! Fifty for KL Rahul. It has been a very good and sensible knock from him. He has looked in no danger and has done really well so far. Now he needs to stay there and see his team through. Shorter ball on off and middle, Rahul pulls it hard between deep mid-wicket and long on. Manish Pandey comes from long on and tries to save it with a dive. He misfields it and the ball goes away to the fence. KXIP 102/1 in 13 overs
22.56 IST: FOUR! Good length ball on middle, Rahul flicks it wide of deep mid-wicket. The batsmen run the That's cheeky and that is the shot of a confident man. Shorter on off, Rahul waits for it and then guides it late towards third man for a boundary. KXIP 97/1 in 12.3 overs
22.54 IST: Good length ball on middle, Rahul flicks it wide of deep mid-wicket. The batsmen run the first one hard and straightaway call for two. Rashid Khan gets to the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end. He hits bull's eye. The umpire takes it upstairs but replays show Mayank was well in. 17 runs off the over. A very expensive one in the context of the game.
22.49 IST: Kaul to Rahul, SIX! This is beautiful to watch and has also been timed to perfection. Fuller on off, Rahul gets on his front foot and delightfully sends it over long off for a maximum. KXIP 84/1 in 10.5 overs
22.48 IST: Kaul to Rahul, FOUR! A gorgeous shot to watch but it did not come off the middle. Back of a length ball on off, Rahul pulls it hard. It comes off the lower half of the bat but is wide of deep mid-wicket for a boundary. KXIP 78/1 in 10.3 overs
22.46 IST: Kaul to Mayank, FOUR! Tidy shot from Mayank. Good length ball on off, Mayank picks it on the up and slams it through covers for a boundary. KXIP 73/1 in 10.1 overs
* Strategic Break - The contest is evenly poised at the moment. Punjab have lost Chris Gayle but Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul have done well to steady the ship. Punjab require 89 in 66 so the run rate should not be a concern if these two go along.
22.35 IST: Kaul to Rahul, FOUR! BEAUTY! Full and outside off, Rahul comes forward and just places it on the up wide of mid off. The ball races away. KXIP 60/1 in 8.3 overs
22.32 IST: Nabi to Mayank, SIX! DROPPED AND SIX! Mayank has not just got a life he has got a maximum as well. Tossed up on middle and off, Mayank looks to go over the fielder at deep mid-wicket. He swings his bat at it. He gets a lot of height in it. He does not time it well. Vijay Shankar at the eddge of the rope tries to take it but the ball goes out of his hand and over the ropes for a six. KXIP 54/1 in 7.5 overs
22.30 IST: Nabi to Rahul, FOUR! Classy shot there by Rahul. That was four the moment he hit it. Short and wide outside off. It was asking to be punished. Rahul obliges and slaps it through covers for a boundary. KXIP 47/1 in 7.2 overs
22.28 IST: Sandeep Sharma to Mayank Agarwal, Shorter delivery on middle, Agarwal hooks it wide of fine leg. Yusuf Pathan runs to his left and stops the ball in a weird way. Couple taken.
22.24 IST: SIX! What a shot! It is not easy to hit a short length ball over long on but Mayank has done that to an absolute ease. Short on middle, Agarwal hits it with straight bat over the long on fence for a maximum. KXIP 38/1 in 5.5 overs
22.22 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Lokesh Rahul, Lands it on a good length on off, Rahul punches it off his back foot but finds the cover fielder this time. 3-0-17-0, a good effort from the skipper.
22.18 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Lokesh Rahul, FOUR! Sliced over backward point! Bhuvneshwar into his third over serves a delivery on a length around off. He gets it to shape away a shade as Rahul mistimed his drive through the line. It flies off the outer half of his bat and goes over the infield. Kaul runs across to his right from third man, puts in a dive but ends up pushing it towards the rope.
22.14 IST: Rashid Khan to Mayank Agarwal, FOUR! Just over! Tossed up on middle, Mayank slaps it just over Rashid Khan. The ball races away to the fence. The onus will now be on these to batsmen.
22.10 IST: Rashid Khan to Chris Gayle, OUT! Rashid Khan strikes straightaway. What a catch! Deepak Hooda you beauty! What a strategy from Bhuvneshwar! He brings the leggie inside the Powerplay and Rashid gives him the prized scalp of Gayle. Rashid floats it full on middle, Gayle clears his front leg and looks to clear long on. Deepak Hooda runs to his right and slides to take a wonderful catch. Just the start Hyderabad wanted. Not the start Punjab wanted though.
* Will we see a bowling change now from Hyderabad? Sandeep Sharma did a fine job in his first over so it looks unlikely.
22.07 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Chris Gayle, SIX! The Jamaican giant explodes and sends this one packing over long on. That's humongous. The delivery is in the line of the stumps and is a bit on the shorter side. Enough for the West Indian to swing his big biceps. He makes extraordinary connection and it goes deep into the stand at long on.
We are back for the chase. The Hyderabad team is out on the field. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul are the openers for Punjab. Hyderabad skipper, Bhuvneshwar Kumar to start the proceedings with the new ball.
* What a cracking finish for Hyderabad! Talk about momentum and they have it heading back to the pavilion. It was a laborious innings for them as scoring runs appeared to be quite tough.
21.44 IST: Mohammed Shami to Deepak Hooda, SIX! This has gone the distance. Hooda finishes it in style with a biggie. Receives a full toss around off, makes room and smokes it over the bowler's head for a maximum. 15 runs in this over, HYDERABAD END ON 150/4!
21.43 IST: Mohammed Shami to Deepak Hooda, FOUR! Gorgeous shot! An overpitched delivery on off at 144 kph, Hooda drills it back past the bowler who jumps and tries to stop the ball with his legs but it screams past him in no time and reaches the fence.
21.42 IST: Mohammed Shami to Deepak Hooda, FOUR.
* Deepak Hooda is in next.
21.38 IST: Mohammed Shami to Manish Pandey, OUT c sub b Mohammed Shami. Hyderabad have lost their fourth wicket.
21.37 IST: Sam Curran to David Warner, EDGY FOUR! Bad luck for the bowler! Curran delivers it full and in the line of the middle stump, Warner hops back again and tries to loft it over covers but it takes the outside edge and runs fine down to third man for a boundary. 11 from the over, 31 in the last three.
21.35 IST: Sam Curran to Manish Pandey, This one is wide outside off on a length, Pandey keeps his weight on the back foot and reaches out for this delivery. Forces it out towards extra cover where the fielder stops it at the edge of the circle. The batsmen have run through for a single.
21.33 IST: Sam Curran to Manish Pandey, FOUR! Just over short third man! Curran delivers it a little short and outside off, Pandey waits for it calmly inside the crease and spoons it over short third man. Rajpoot there reacts to his left and tries to catch it with his right hand (strangely) but it's too far away from him and goes to the fence.
21.30 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to David Warner, Good footwork shown by Shami in the deep! A full toss outside off, Warner shuffles across the stumps and swings it through square leg. Shami rushes across to his right from fine leg and uses his boot to stop the ball inches before the rope. Saves two runs for his side.
* Ankit Rajpoot is back on attack
21.24 IST: Mohammed Shami to David Warner, FOUR! Warner getting into the act now. Shami lets out a slower one but bowls it on the shorter side around off. David goes deep inside the crease this time to make room and powers it through point. Mandeep in the deep puts in a full length dive but fails to pull it back.
21.21 IST: Mohammed Shami to Manish Pandey, FOUR! The final phase of this innings begins well for Hyderabad. A length delivery outside off, Manish goes deep inside the crease to make room and hammers it through extra cover for a boundary.
* Strategic break. Punjab continue to be on top by bowling tidily but they will have to maintain the same intensity in the death overs. Hyderabad have found it tough to cut loose but David Warner is still out there and all the hopes will be pinned on his shoulders to take them close to 150, at least.
21.19 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner, Fifty for Warner, his 39th in the Indian T20 League and seventh on the trot against Punjab! Mujeeb delivers it short and outside off, David hammers it to sweeper cover and returns for the second run. Good running between the wickets. A very responsible knock from Warner, it's on the slower side but his presence means that the scoring rate can go up any time. SRH 104/3 in 16 Overs
21.15 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner, SIX! Here comes the first biggie of the innings! Warner has hoisted it over the bowler's head. SRH 98/3 in 15.1 Overs
21.12 IST: Sam Curran to Manish Pandey, Huge shout for LBW! Denied. Curran wants a review but no one supports him. Poor lad. Tell you why.
* Sam Curran is back on attack. 2-0-15-0 so far.
21.07 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to David Warner, FOUR! Ashwin goes short and on middle, Warner turns inside the crease and pulls it past short fine leg for a boundary.
* Manish Pandey is the new batsman.
21.05 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to David Warner, OUTA run out at the non-striker's end with Ashwin involved once more. Nopes, it's not Mankading, it's a regular way of getting run out. A full delivery around off has been hit back by Warner. Ashwin goes down low to stop the ball and Nabi has left the crease. The Punjab skipper recovers quickly and flicks it onto the stumps behind.
* Mayank Agarwal is in deep pain. He is holding his little finger and is rushing out of the field along with the physio to receive some treatment. Hopefully, everything is good.
21.04 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Mohammad Nabi, Bowls a carrom ball outside off, Nabi slaps it through covers. Mayank Agarwal at deep cover does well to stop it and saves runs for the team. The batsmen get three runs. Good running between the wickets.
21.03 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner, FOUR! Here comes the reverse-batted shot! Mujeeb serves it full and around leg, the Aussie brings out the reverse sweep and nails it over backward point for a boundary.
21.02 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner, Flatter delivery, full and on the pads, Warner works it in front of square leg and scampers across for a couple of runs.
21.00 IST: Sam Curran to Mohammad Nabi, IN THE AIR BUT SAFE! Sam Curran follows Mohammad Nabi and bowls a short of a length delivery, Nabi looks to pull but gets a top edge. It lands in no man's land towards mid-wicket where the bowler himself goes for the catch but it lands safely. The batsmen pick up a couple.
20.56 IST: Sam Curran to Mohammad Nabi, Length delivery on leg, Nabi flicks it through mid-wicket. The batsmen pick up a couple.
20.54 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to David Warner, FOUR! Finds the fence! Ashwin goes short again but not always you will hit the jackpot. This time Warner latches onto it and whacks it through point. 11 from the over, the biggest over of this innings.
20.53 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to Vijay Shankar, OUT! Shankar tries to be cheeky with his late cut but has ended up edging it behind. He attempted a similar shot in Ashwin's last over too but that time he got beaten completely. Not this time though. Ashwin serves it slightly short and just outside off. SRH 56/2 in 10.4 Overs
20.51 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to Vijay Shankar, FOUR! A welcome boundary for Hyderabad, only the third in this innings. A flighted ball around leg, skidding in, Shankar makes room and lofts it straight down the ground for a boundary.
20.48 IST: Sam Curran to David Warner, Full and outside off, David drives it through covers. The batsmen pick up a couple.
* Strategic Timeout Hyderabad are struggling here to get going! Once again, just like yesterday, the team batting first is finding it tough to score freely. The bowling from Punjab is decent, they have served a few poor ones too, but they haven't been put away by David Warner or Vijay Shankar. The surface appears to be on the slower side and let's see how Hyderabad deal with it in the middle phase. Meanwhile, Punjab have brought their little star into the attack - Sam Curran.
20.40 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to Vijay Shankar, Floated on middle, Shankar flicks it towards mid-wicket. The batsmen get two runs.
20.38 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to David Warner, Short and outside off, Warner makes room and cuts it towards point. The batsmen pick up a couple. SRH 36/1 in 7.5 Overs
20.36 IST: Ravichandran Ashwin to David Warner, Tossed up on middle, the left-hander flicks it towards mid-wicket. The batsmen pick up a couple.
20.34 IST: Interesting! After the first ball of the last over, David Warner, out of habit, left his crease, even before Ashwin was in his delivery stride. Realizing immediately, the Aussie dragged his bat quickly inside the crease. Hmm... We don't want yet another controversy related to Mankading.
* Ravichandran Ashwin is into the attack.
20.31 IST: Mohammed Shami to Vijay Shankar, Lands it on a length and around off, Shankar stays back and taps it down to point. Yet another quiet over to end the Powerplay. Just 27 runs off it!
20.28 IST: Mohammed Shami to Vijay Shankar, Back of a length delivery outside off, Vijay keeps his weight on the back foot and punches it to cover-point.
20.25 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to David Warner, FOUR! Only the second boundary of the innings and first for Warner. Too full in length on middle, David flicks it across the line to mid-wicket where Ashwin fails to reach with a full-length dive and it races away to the fence. SRH 25/1 in 5 Overs
20.23 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to Vijay Shankar, BEATEN! It was bowled on a good length and outside off, Shankar looks to defend but misses it due to the away movement on this one.
20.20 IST: Mohammed Shami to David Warner, Miscommunication but no harm done! A pitched up ball around off, Warner pushes it with soft hands to covers and Shankar eyes a run. But he is sent back quickly and the throw from the fielder was quite wayward.
20.17 IST: Mohammed Shami to David Warner, Shami lands it short and outside off, Warner shapes up for a big flat-batted shot but it comes slowly off the surface and he ends up mistiming it back to the bowler. SRH 18/1 in 3.2 Overs
* Mohammed Shami is into the attack now.
* David Miller is mic'd up. On his fielding effort, he says that he feels quite young. Moving over to the match, David is happy with the wicket of Bairstow as he reckons that the Englishman can take the game quickly. Observes that the ground is very wet, which means dew has already made its presence. Hopes that it gets wetter and wetter so that chasing would be easy. On the pitch, DM is surprised with so much grass on the wicket but reckons that it will be a belter. Regarding Hyderabad's dominance over Punjab and any discussion in approaching the game, Miller says that no such specific talk takes place in terms of history but more or less it is about focussing on the present. So he stresses - like focussing on Hyderabad's openers and keeping them quiet and so all. Jokes that he and Gayle discuss about different bat shapes with the latter having a few of those.
20.12 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to David Warner, Full on leg, Warner flicks it towards fine leg. The fielder chases it and does well to stop it before the ropes. The batsmen get three runs. That should have been a leg bye but the umpire does not spot it. SRH 14/1 in 2.1 Overs
20.10 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Vijay Shankar, FOUR! A boundary to end the over! Mujeeb tosses it one nicely but lands it very full outside off. Shankar presses forward and drives it crisply through covers for a boundary. SRH 11/1 in 2 Overs
20.08 IST: Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Jonny Bairstow, OUT! Massive success for Punjab! Mujeeb did well to keep Bairstow quiet in this over and eventually has removed him from the crease. A floated delivery, on a fuller length around middle, Jonny leans forward and across before playing the flick shot but fails to keep it down. Ashwin manning the mid-wicket region goes down low and takes an excellent catch. SRH 7/1 in 1.4 Overs
* Spin or pace? Which type of bowler will bowl from the other end? Any guesses? Okay, we will tell you. It's the Afghan kid, Mujeeb Ur Rahman. A slip is in place.
20.04 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to Jonny Bairstow, Length delivery on middle, Bairstow flicks it towards mid-wicket for a single.
20.02 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to David Warner, On a good length on off, Warner plays it towards cover to get off the mark. The cover fielder goes for a direct hit at the bowler's end but misses it.
20.01 IST: Ankit Rajpoot to David Warner, Wide. Starts with a wide delivery outside off, Warner shoulders his arms to this one. Ankit Rajpoot starts with a widish delivery.

Mentions that it's more to do with the conditions. Feels the pitch appears to be a bit tacky. On containing Bairstow and Warner, Ashwin replies that they are quality batsmen and they will try to bowl well up front.
19.37 IST: Hyderabad skipper, Bhuvneshwar Kumar says he wanted to bowl also but now they have to post a big score as dew could be a factor. Wants to improve on the middle order batting and states that he is enjoying his captaincy stint. Informs that they are unchanged.
