Rashid Khan and Khaeel Ahmed ensured KXIP could never find any kind of momentum in a steep chase and crashed to defeat.Chris Gayle was brilliantly caught by Manish Pandey off Khaleel Ahmed for 4 and KXIP could never really gain any kind of momentum in their chase despite a strong hand from KL Rahul.Mayank Agarwal was looking good in the middle and he made his intention clear with a huge six off Rashid Khan but he fell to the leg-spinner the very next ball. Khaleel returned for his second spell to see off Nicholas Pooran and Rashid inflicted more damage on KXIP when he removed David Miller and R Ashwin off successive deliveries.KL Rahul did wage a lone battle for KXIP and a win was not entirely impossible with him at the crease. At 79, Rahul top-edged a Khaleel delivery but Kane Williamson held on to a skier.At the end, tt was a one-sided victory for Sunrisers Hyderabad who are now hot favourites to reach the playoffs with 12 points from 12 matches. If they reach the qualifiers, they will owe a lot of their success to Jonny Bairstow and David Warner who will not be with them in the business-end of the IPL.advertisementDavid Warner had missed the 2018 IPL after the BCCI barred him and Steve Smith from participating following the ball-tampering scandal.Playing his last match of the season, David Warner was once again unstoppable. Wriddhiman Saha was even more aggressive at the other but his blitz was cut short by M Ashwin in the 7th over. Saha’s 13-ball 28, had however set the tone for an assault from Warner and Manish Pandey, who has been a different batsman after being promoted to No.3.David Warner and Manish Pandey added 82 for the 2nd wicket off 9.1 overs. When Pandey fell to R Ashwin for 36 off 25 in the 16th over, SRH were 160 for 2 and were looking at a huge total. But Warner, who was on the cusp of his 2nd hundred of the season and 5th in the IPL overall, fell to Ashwin 3 balls later for 81.David Warner’s knock was studded with 7 fours and 2 sixes.After Warner’s exit., Mohammad Nabi (20 off 10) SRH skipper Kane Williamson (14 off 7) ensured the hosts neared the 200-run mark. Both men fell in the 19th over to Mohammed Shami but SRH finished with 212 for 6 off their 20 overs.KXIP needed a Chris Gayle special to stand a chance one of the most balanced bowling attacks in the Indian Premier League. Once he fell in the 3rd over, there was little KL Rahul could have done alone without much support from the hard-hitting Nicholas Pooran and David Miller.Also Read | R Ashwin pulls out of delivery twice.
