Follow IPL T20 live score for Kings XI Punjab vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

That brings today's live coverage to a close. A very good night from all of us here at Sportskeeda. Do join us tomorrow for live updates. Till then, good bye and good night!
Warner says, "We know here generally, getting 180 you generally win most games. Fantastic innings from Marsh, after those drops. It's a bit hard here in the lights, but no excuses. The way he played, it was the Shikhar of old. Williamson is a fantastic player, the way he plays so freely and elegantly. I just tried to tinker a bit with what Kings XI did in the first six overs in our innings."
The Man of the Match award goes to Rashid Khan for his match-winning spell.
Shaun Marsh gets the Stylish Player of the Day award.
The perfect catch of the match award goes to Glenn Maxwell. The Maximum Sixes award goes to David Warner.
Time for the post-match presentation.
Maxwell says, "It was chase-able. We were sloppy with the ball and in the field. We bowled either side of the wicket. There were a few soft dismissals in isolation. If you put together it looks bad. Marsh was absolute class, he was striking the ball beautifully. He has done it for Kings XI for 10 seasons. It is a quick turnaround for us. At least we will be at home and turn up next game."
In the end, Maxwell will rue the poor bowling performance of his team that cost them the match.

And while their bowling was not on the mark, not much can be said about their batting performance either. Apart from Shaun Marsh, none of
the batsmen managed to take responsibility. Wickets fell at regular intervals right from the start. 

Perhaps, when captain Maxwell was dismissed on nought, it was already game over. But Marsh kept the match alive with a breathtaking solo performance. Yes, he survived a couple of close calls but it was his innings that gave the crowd something to cheer about.

As long as he was in the middle, there was still some hope. But Bhuvneshwar was brought back into the attack and he did not disappoint his captain. After that, it was only a matter of when, rather than who will win the match.

Earlier, bolstered by three half-centuries from Warner, Dhawan and Williamson, SRH had posted a massive target of 208 on the board. It proved to be too much for KXIP, eventually.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the match by 26 runs!

A wicket off the last ball to finish things up. Warner will be happy. His team has finally notched up an away victory.
