That's all from us today. Tune in tomorrow, where we bring the coverage of Royal Challengers locking horns with Mumbai Indians at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
...
Man of the Match, Zampa: "The performance hasn't sunk in yet. It is hard for a leg-spinner,when you know that batsmen are gonna come hard. Dhoni didn't tell me I'll bowl the 20th over before. He just tossed the ball at me. He told me to fire it wide out of the reach, because leg side was their strength. The experience has been fantastic, the crowds have been great."
...
Warner: " It was very close, wicket was going to be slow and tough. There were runs on the board, but I think we were 25-30 runs short. When I came back I was positive, and the way boys bowled was fantastic. Fantastic win to go for us forward. Coaches and support staff has been fantastic. Naman has been phemomenal. Zampa is a fantastic leg spinner, MS Dhoni had faith in him".
...
MS Dhoni: " It is tough one to lose close games, you have to see the positives, if we can still give a 5 per cent the lost games would have been different. New ball bowling was good and we did well to restrict them to 137. Their bowling attack attack can exploit the conditions more, we could not get enough runs up front, we kept losing wickets, one could have played through. Zampa was fantastic, we wanted to include him but could not because of the combinations, he gave us wickets in the middle overs. What is also important to test our bench strengths, next three games will be opportunities for the rest of the squad."

SRH started well with the ball, they nipped out Ajinkya Rahane and Usman Khawaja, but then George Bailey and Ravichandran Ashwin resurrected the innings, Bailey fell and Dhoni tried to take it deep, and hit a six in the final over to keep things afloat. He was run out, and the chase suffered, but kudos to Naman Ojha for sticking out that glove to hold on to the catch off the final over. SRH now lead the points table.
...
19.6 Nehra to Zampa, OUT! SRH WIN! Zampa can't finish off his day on the winning side. The ball moves away from him, he gets a leading edge that is caught by a diving Naman Ojha, airborne and all. He latches onto it and Warner roars in delight. WOW NAMAN OJHA, give him the man of the match already. Composure, footwork and lovely soft hands, exceptional. Nehra can thank his stars, oh no, he has to thank Naman Ojha.
...
19.5 Nehra to MS Dhoni, OUT! Dhoni has to depart! Ball creeps up on him , he pulls but just over the keeper. Sran throws from the short third man region to the strikers end, where Dhoni falls short. Top effort from Yuvraj Singh, who ran from point and collects the ball and dislodges the stumps. What presence of mind!
...
Fine leg is up!
...
19.4 Nehra to MS Dhoni, SIX! Low full toss, he connects and how! Uses his malleable wrists to hit it high and over to cow corner. Well well, Dhoni bangs, what is all the fuss about. 6 off 2 balls.
...
Dhoni!
...
19.3 Nehra to Perera, OUT! The old warhorse has struck! He gives length and width this time, Perera slices it up in the air. It goes right up and lands in the hands of Henriques at short cover. Pressure does strange things, a length ball in the slot, but Perea can only get it in the air. Henriques ice cool under it and pouches it with ease.
...
19.2 Nehra to MS Dhoni, 1run, yorker again on the off stick, Dhoni can only dig it out to cover. Inch perfect yorker from the veteran. Top bowling under pressure.
...
Third man is up!
...
19.1 Nehra to Perera,1 run, in-swinging yorker, he drives it hard to long on. Well that was in the slot, but Perera cannot get under that ball.
...
It is Ashish Nehra!
...
14 runs needed in the last over. Right down Dhoni's territory one would believe, but it is Perera on strike. Cannot rule him out too.
...
18.6 Mustafizur to Perera, 1 run, yorker on the off, he can just slice it to third man.
...
18.5 Mustafizur to Perera, 2 runs, gets a ball on the off, he holes it out but beyond three fielders at the cover fence. Runs back for two.
...
18.4 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 1 run, slaps a low full toss back, ricochets off the bowler's hand to short cover.
...
18.3 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, no run, slower and closer to the off, Dhoni tries to work it to off but gets a thin edge which reaches Ojha on bounce.
...
18.2 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 2 runs, low full toss this time, he just pushes to Warner at long off. Desperation from Perera, who dives and makes his ground, will Dhoni will do it in singles and doubles?
...
18.1 Mustafizur to MS Dhoni, 2 runs, full ball, pushes calmly to deep cover for two. That is thunderous running by Dhoni and Perera, 2 out of nowhere.
...
Mustafizur now!
...
Big over, 22 needed now from the last 2 overs.
...
17.6 Kumar to MS Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni advances but the ball angles in, pushes it past Bhuvi to retain strike.
