Warner:"It is pretty overwhelming, this. I tried to stay in the middle for a partnership. I knew if one of us would be there, then we could win. Credit goes to Bipul for the way he batted. He has been bowling well and his work ethic is fantastic. It was my turn to take the home this time. There can be a few emotions here and there because of silly errors. We have to come back stronger than the last time we played against RCB. Kohli, what a player he is. If he fails, then there is AB deVilliers. It is all about a gameplan against them."
...
DAVID WARNER is the MAN OF THE MATCH.
...
Suresh Raina: "They played really well. Warner batted well, this score was defendable. Shivil bowled well in patches. Was an enjoyable campaign, new team and thanks to all the fans and the support staff. Good luck to RCB and SRH. Hodge is a wonderful person, both on and off the person, keeps the dressing room calm."
...
It will a battle of the southern states for the IPL crown. SRH will take on RCB on Sunday.
...
This chase was always going to be centred around David Warner and boy did he deliver on the big day. Wickets kept tumbling at the other end, he kept his calm all through and took his team through and carried his bat too. Bipul Sharma came out and smoked 3 sixes to ease pressure and Warner got the job done.

Gujarat tried their best, picked up key wickets but could not get through Warner. Take a bow captain.

TIMEOUT!
...
15.5 Bravo to Ojha, OUT! Bravo misses the yorker, but takes the wicket! Low full toss, Ojha doesn't get enough power to hoist it over the fence, the ball is gobbled up by the deep midwicket fielder.

Big over... 19 runs from the over. SRH have stormed back in. Dwayne Smith taken to the cleaners.
...
14.6 Smith to Ojha, SIX! Short ball, but doesnt have pace, Ojha picks up the length and pulls it flat over deep midwicket. This is poor bowling from Smith, dragging it and bowling slow. Ojha is a clean striker and he is pumped too.
