Garg departs for duck, 34 needed off 30

Another wicket, as Garg has fallen for an unfortunate duck. Nevertheless, SRH is still in a strong position and should see this through. 34 needed off 30.

OUT! Garg c and b Mustafizur 0 (1). SRH 131/3 (15). Batting: Kane Williamson 33 (29), Abhishek Sharma 8 (7).

10:19 PM IST

Roy departs for 60, 51 needed off 48

There seems to be no stopping SRH, as Roy has scored his maiden IPL half-century on debut and is dismissed by pacer Sakariya after being duly being supported by Williamson. Looks like a gone case for RR. 51 needed off 48.

OUT! Roy c Samson b Sakariya 60 (42).  SRH 114/2 (12). Batting: Kane Williamson 25 (19).

10:06 PM IST

Roy and Williamson steady SRH's chase

Roy and Williamson continue to steady the chase as SRH looks well on course for a win tonight. Can RR stop the onslaught? 84 needed off 66.

SRH 81/1 (9). Batting: Jason Roy 40 (32), Kane Williamson 14 (11).

9:54 PM IST

Saha falls for 18, 102 needed off 84

Saha and Roy off to decent start

The SRH openers are off to a decent start, with Saha and Roy taking that attack to the RR pacers.

SRH 26/0 (3). Batting: Wriddhiman Saha 18 (10), Jason Roy 7 (8).

9:11 PM IST

Samson falls for 82, SRH needs 165 to win

RR fails to get past 170, as Samson and Parag depart in quick sessions. SRH needs 165 to win, but will RR's relentless bowling allow that to happen?

OUT! Samson c Holder b Kaul 82 (57), Parag c Roy b Kaul 0 (1). RR 164/5 (20). Batting: Mahipal Lomror 29 (28), Rahul Tewatia 0 (1).

8:59 PM IST

Samson and Lomror get it going

Samson and Lomror get it going, with some luck favouring, while the former is approaching his century. Can SRH get rid of the skipper, as he also completes his 3,000 IPL runs? 170 seems definitely on the cards.

RR 153/3 (18). Batting: Sanju Samson 78 (52), Mahipal Lomror 25 (23).

Jaiswal departs for 36 to Sandeep

The second breakthrough is here for SRH as Jaiswal has been cleaned up by pacer Sandeep. Nonetheless, RR has hardly anything to fear with the arrival of Livingstone.

Jaiswal-Samson capitalise

Jaiswal and Samson have done well so far, as they keep RR's innings going. SRH needs to keep getting breakthroughs consistently.

RR 57/1 (7). Batting: Yashasvi Jaiswal 29 (19), Sanju Samson 22 (19).

7:08 PM IST

Lewis departs early to Bhuvneshwar

It is a shaky start by RR, losing Lewis in the second over to seamer Bhuvneshwar, as he went over-ambitious and handed an easy one to Samad in the deep. It brings Samson to the crease, and both have been batting promisingly so far.

OUT! Lewis c Samad b Bhuvneshwar 6 (4). RR 22/1 (3). Batting: Yashasvi Jaiswal 15 (8), Sanju Samson 1 (6).

RR opts to bat

Toss: RR has opted to bat

Sanju Samson: We are looking to bat first. Team combo, atmosphere suits us to bat first. We learn from the loss in the last game. We are having fitness issues. Kartik Tyagi is out with injury. Morris and Lewis return.

Kane Williamson: We would have had a hit as well. But, we will look to adapt early with the ball and limit their total. Few young players are getting opportunities. Jason Roy is at the top for David Warner. Pandey, Kedar miss out. Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma are playing. Siddhart Kaul replaces injured Khaleel. Today, there is something fresh. There are a lot of changes. So, the youngsters must come in and stick to their strengths. As a unit, we do want to be putting performances together. That is the focus for us even though we are sort of no longer in the comp. We want to play the kind of cricket we are proud of.
