After opting to field first, SRH's plan initially worked as KKR was reeling at 51/4 at one stage. However, the firepower the two-time champions possess is of extreme measure. It took Andre Russell's blinder of a knock and Philip Salt's crafty innings to put a mammoth total of 208 on the board. In reply, SRH was always in the game and at the key moments they accelerated but eventually, they lost the game by 4 runs.
