Captains View 

David Warner  |SRH skipper

We’re going to have a bowl first. I think the last game proved that a little bit of dew came towards the end. Towards the back end, there was a bit of pace on the wicket.

Each game presents a new challenge, these guys are on a roll and it was nice for us as well to win the last game and get some momentum. We have spoken a lot about our middle order and it was nice to see the guys play without risk in the last game. Khaleel Ahmed comes in for Nadeem.

KL Rahul | KXIP skipper

I would’ve liked to bowl as well. We’ve batted second in the last few games which we’ve won. The wicket shouldn’t change much, it looks good. Winning obviously gives the group a lot of confidence especially when it comes against the top three teams.

Different people have put their hands up in all three games which was pleasing. We had to win each game in the second half and we’re taking it one game at a time. Chris has been a big matchwinner, he has come good and brings calm and a winning spirit into the dressing room.

He keeps the mood of the dressing room very light and the boys love playing with him. It has been different people in different games, the bowling has come good as well. Maxwell coming good in the last game gives confidence to the group.

Hopefully, we can play aggressive cricket. Two changes – Mayank Agarwal and Jimmy Neesham miss out and Mandeep Singh and Chris Jordan come in.

After the skipper’s dismissal, Bairstow too dismissed for 19 runs and lands SRH in trouble. Though SRH makes an impressive starts KXIP bowlers with their extraordinary bowling performance makes back to back wickets. That makes SRH to score 70 runs for 3 wicket loss.

For a moment the game has changed its direction in favor of SRH but Jordan’s dismissal of Manish Pandey makes SRH fall again in the trouble. Arshdeep Singh with his back to back wickets in the 18th over builds pressure over the SRH batsmen.

SRH needs to make boundaries and sixes in order to win the match and to alive in the tournament. Jordan in his last over dismissed Rashid Khan and Holder and makes the winning possibilities higher for the KXIP.

With 14 required off the last over SRH struggles with the new batsmen. SRH dream of at least leveling the score has been scattered when Arshdeep Singh took three wickets off the last over. SRH start with aggressive and loses its mojo in the middle and lost the game against KXIP.

Man of the match

Chris Jordan | KXIP

Feel great, proud of the team. We had a tough start, but we kept the belief. It’s part and parcel of life to miss a few. The coaches and the teams are trying their best to get the best combination, to win four in a row is really pleasing.

Arshdeep backed his skills and it’s come off. I just tried to support him to make it clear for him. I just tried to bowl a quiet over to give Arshdeep as much as I could to defend.
