So, that pretty much wraps up proceedings at Rajkot with the home side going down for the first time in the series. The IPL caravan now moves to Pune where the Rising Pune Supergiants take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore tomorrow, with the match scheduled to begin at 20:00 hrs (IST). Sportskeeda's live coverage for that game begins at 18:30 hrs (IST). We hope to have your company for that as well!

"Finch was the one who was scoring the runs for them, so we wanted to get him early. I always look to swing the ball, that's my strength. Sran swings the ball early on and Mustafizur is an excellent death bowler. No one can bowl like him," says Bhuvaneshwar.
...
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has been adjudged as the Man of the Match for his spell of 4/29 off his 4 overs!
...
"Credit to the bowlers. Gives the the opportunity to go out there and bat freely. The ball kept a bit low, and it was a two paced wicket. Bhuvi bowled well. Mustafizur's change of pace has been amazing. He is a very fine young bowler. I'm proud of the way the bowlers are bowling," says David Warner.
...
David Warner now has the Orange Cap!
...
Everything went wrong for Gujarat Lions except for the knock by Suresh Raina who made 75 runs, bringing up his first fifty of IPL 2016.

"We didn't get enough runs on the board. We lost too many wickets in the middle overs. Credit to the Sunrisers. We thought that the wicket would slow down later on, and if we had 160 on the board, it would have been a close game. We have to do really well in the next game. I was hitting the ball well, it felt good to contribute, but we ended up on the losing side," says the Gujarat Lions skipper Suresh Raina.
...
That makes it 14 out of 15 for the teams chasing, but it's the first ten-wicket win in IPL2016.
...
What a dominating performance by the Sunrisers. They have strolled home by 10 wickets with more than 5 overs to spare. That is some statement being made by the men from Hyderabad.
...
Warner finishes things off in style as he late cuts the ball past third man to give SRH the victory by 10 wickets! What a show!
...
14.5 Jadeja to Warner, FOUR! Full delivery and outside off, Warner opens his bat and guides it to the third man boundary, beating the race with the fielder at short third man. Game over. The Sunrisers win with 10 wickets and 31 balls to spare. Absolutely resounding.
...
14.4 Jadeja to Dhawan, 3 runs, short and on the pads, worked past short fine leg. The batsmen run 3!
...
50 for Dhawan! A well-compiled innings there after a very long time. That would give him a lot of confidence.
...
14.3 Jadeja to Dhawan, 2 runs, down the track and easily worked towards deep midwicket to bring up his 50.
...
14.2 Jadeja to Dhawan, 2 runs, short and outside off, Dhawan gets down and plays behind backward point.
...
14.1 Jadeja to Warner, 1 run, full and straight, huge heavy from Warner, gets the edge and on to the leg side. He was aiming for the wild slog over long on, but didn't get the timing on that!
...
9 off the over. Dhawan inching closer to his fifty now. Good signs for the Sunrisers!
...
13.6 Kulkarni to Warner, 1 run, length delivery with room on offer, Warner cuts away to backward point to retain strike.

...
13.3 Kulkarni to Dhawan, 2 runs, length and on the pads, Dhawan guides it past short fine leg, but can't beat the fielder who comes around from deep backward square leg. He has been glancing everything on his pads behind his stumps. That's the shot he's played very well all nightlong!
...
13.2 Kulkarni to Dhawan, no run, length delivery on middle and off, defended.
...
13.1 Kulkarni to Warner, 1 run, length delivery on the pads, played to long on.

Dhawal Kulkarni has been introduced! Yes, introduced, with just 20 to defend.
