Great win for the Sunrisers as they climb to 4th place in the IPL. We'll be back tomorrow with coverage of the two games, first, between the RCB and RPSG in Bangalore and second, the KXIP and DD in Mohali. See you and good night.

Bhuvi, "Being a new ball bowler, the team wants you to take wickets early. Once you get them, it's tough for the other teams to get away. I look to swing the ball and take early wickets. I ate 3 or 4 insects today, the bugs were an issue today. I don't tell Mustafizur anything, as he has his own skills, he is the man that takes the pressure off in the end."
...
...
The man of the match is Bhuvaneshwar Kumar!
...
David Warner, "I wasn't nervous. I told them, if we need 120 balls, we'll play 120 balls. The way Shikhar played was fantastic for us. I think 150 was par on this wicket but both teams bowled exceptionally. The bowlers can work on a few more things, so can the batsmen, but they're doing a fantastic job at the moment. We'll see you back here for the next home game(to the crowd). Well I misjudged the catch, happens we are all humans"
...
Suresh Raina: "We bowled well, the score was below par, we fought hard, credit goes to Shikhar, who took the responsibility. We need to be positive, need to fine tune our game, more positive in our batting plan. Everyone is responding well, Hodge, Bravo and Streak are crucial. Have no idea about Finch, hopefully nothing is serious. We still bowled well in the middle overs. We need to bowl well in Kolkata."
...
The score was always under par, and Gujarat fought out there, picked up wickets, but Dhawan hung in there, and held the innings together, never bothered about the strike rate, and carried his bat through. Took his side home. Dhawal Kulkarni and Dwayne Bravo picked wickets, but the score was never going to be match winning.
...
18.6 Praveen to Dhawan, FOUR! SRH WIN! Dhawan stands way past leg stump, making room, full delivery and straight, gets his bat down in time and slices it through the covers to condemn the Lions to their third loss in 3 matches!
...
18.5 Praveen to Dhawan, FOUR! Glorious. Full and on the pads, just uses the angle to flick it away past deep fine leg for a four. Dhawan has played this game at his own pace, but he's been in control throughout. Nice and angled into the pads, Dhawan nonchalant in his shot.He has timed this innings to perfection.
...
18.4 Praveen to Ojha, 1 run, yorker on the toes, guided to the covers, and Dhawan sprints across.
...
18.4 Praveen to Ojha, 1 WIDE, too high. Praveen is ticking now.
...
18.3 Praveen to Ojha, FOUR! Take a bow Naman Ojha, the game needed someone to step up, full ball in the slot, lifts it straight over the bowler's head for a crucial boundary. Clean hit from Ojha.
...
18.2 Praveen to Ojha, no run, full and played towards extra cover. Hits it too well to get a single. Dhawan wanted to get back to strike, but Raina was sharp.
...
18.1 Praveen to Ojha, 2 runs, worked with soft hands in front of deep midwicket for a brace, great running. Praveen not happy for some reason, he has been angry all evening.
...
Praveen to bowl the penultimate over.
...
Excellent over from Dwayne Bravo, has nicely contained the batsman. 14 runs needed from the last 2 overs.
...
17.6 Bravo to Ojha, 1 run, low full toss, one hand comes off the bat as he guides it to long off to retain strike.
...
17.5 Bravo to Dhawan, 1 run, length and on off, dabbed to short cover for a quick single.
...
17.4 Bravo to Dhawan, 2 runs, full slower ball outside off, cut towards deep point, they take on Jadeja's arm again and just about survive. Jadeja has ruled the field today, once again swoops on the ball, and then that rocket arm hurls the ball back in. Dhawan dives and makes his ground.
...
17.3 Bravo to Ojha, 1 run, full and outside edge, got an inside edge towards the wicketkeeper, Dhawan sprints across and they cross for a single. Slower dipping ball, Ojha inside edges it past the stumps.
...
There seems to a conversation going on in the centre, no idea why?
...
In walks Naman Ojha! The game is not over.
...
17.2 Bravo to Hooda, OUT! Short and down the leg side, Hooda's the second batsmen to take the bait and try to play the pull shot, second batsman who gets hit on the glove, caught by DK behind the stumps. Easier catch this time. Another strangle down the leg side, is there still life left in the game?
