And that brings us to the end of this clash, do join us for RCB's clash against KKR.
MOM Kane Williamson: "I think the contribution from the batting order on that surface to get 150, which was a par total, and then to squeeze well with out bowling like we have in the last couple of games was incredible. They did get off to a good start, put us under pressure but it was nice for us to bounce back in the second half. The surface was definitely on the slower side, with slow turn and not a lot of bounce. They used the hard length ball well with the big boundaries was something we wanted to incorporate as well in our innings. 

"I thought in the first part we were very good and were able to restrict them to a decent total. Yusuf's wicket was fortunate, probably not his best delivery, but was nice to get that wicket at that stage because he (Stokes) is such a dangerous player. The way the guys went out today, we didn't get that 10-15 more on another challenging surface but we did see an improvement, which we look to carry forward. 

"T20 is pretty fickle in nature and it is nice to get a few wins on the board; but each game is a tough game. We need to adapt to conditions, not get ahead of ourselves, which have varied a lot and that's what we aim to build on and do going forward as well. Alex (Hales) is world class in this format; it was nice for him to get us off to a good start and it was great for him to have that opportunity."
Last three totals defended by SRH: 118, 132 and now 151. A brilliant bowling line-up coupled with sharp captaincy from Williamson has led them to one victory after another. RR will rue the fact that Rahane lacked support with one batsman after another getting out cheaply. But that can be countered by saying that Rahane's innings did not have the required intent to chase down quick runs towards the end. Sandeep Sharma, Rashid Khan (again) and Siddharth Kaul (again, too) wrecked the RR chase, and have brought SRH two crucial points.
19.6 Thampi to Archer, 1 run, that was full and swinging into the stumps and SRH win by 11 runs. Kane's men show that they can defend any total once again and with win they go to the top of the table. Excellent over under pressure from Thampi.
Archer for the final ball
19.5 Thampi to K Gowtham, OUT, Gowtham goes for the big shot but he can't quite get it over the ropes. That was in the slot but Gowtham mistimes it and Dhawan takes an easy catch at long off. And that should be the game.
19.4 Thampi to K Gowtham, 2 runs, Gowtham drills that perfectly down the middle of the pitch but it is just two. Almost cleans out the umpire as well.
19.3 Thampi to Rahane, 1 run, that was just outside off and Rahane hits that back straight at the bowler and they sneak a single.
19.2 Thampi to K Gowtham, 1 run, Gowtham goes for a big shot but drives that firmly to cover. Just a single.
19.1 Thampi to K Gowtham, FOUR, excellent yorker but Gowtham gets a boundary past square leg. Great shot to start the over.
21 off 6 for Thampi to defend

Over 19 RR: 131/5(RR 6.89) Bowler: S Kaul Sum..: 1 2 W 1 2 .
18.6 Kaul to Rahane, no run, Rahane goes for a slog but that is a slower ball and Rahane gets an under edge to the keeper.
18.5 Kaul to Rahane, 2 runs, Shakib with some fancy footwork at the deep cover position to save a boundary. Rahane cuts that wide of deep cover but Shakib stops that with his feet.
18.4 Kaul to K Gowtham, 1 run, slower ball from Kaul and Gowtham goes for the flick over mid-wicket but that is just a single to deep square leg.
Krishnappa Gowtham is here. Can he repeat his heroics from the previous game and finish off this chase for RR?
18.3 Kaul to Lomror, OUT, he goes for the big heave again and Saha takes a brilliant catch diving to his left. Knuckle ball outside off and Saha takes a beautiful catch to dismiss the dangerous Lomror. Yet another strike bang at the right time by SRH!
18.2 Kaul to Lomror, 2 runs, excellent save from Manish Pandey. Saves four runs there. That goes up a mile in the air and Pandey throws it back in before he goes over the boundary line.
18.1 Kaul to Rahane, 1 run, Rahane backs away but can't quite beat backward point. Knuckle ball and he had no pace to work with. Singles won't help at this stage. They need to go big!
Rashid has finished his spell with 1/31. And here comes Kaul to bowl his fourth with 27 required off 12.

Over 18 RR: 125/4(RR 6.94) Bowler: R Khan Sum..: 6 1 . 1 . 1

17.1 Rashid to Rahane, SIX, Rahane gets one in his arc and he just deposits that over square leg. Down on one knee and bang! Crucial for RR!
36 to win off 18 - that's twelve an over in the final three. Can Rahane take them all the way?
