7.56 pm We'll bring you the Man of the Match details when we have them officially, but it's going to be Dre Russ of course. Meanwhile you can hop on over to the second match of this double-header day, another high voltage clash - Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals.

7.52 pm We've had a floodlight failure. We've had the home team looking down for the count. And then we've had Dre Russ switching on Beast Mode. With Shubman Gill to provide the final garnish. Superb finish by Russell and Gill. They added 65 runs in 25 balls - Russell has 49* off 19, Gill has 18* off 10. They needed 53 to win in the last three overs and did it - that's the most anyone has scored to win in the last three overs in any IPL game. That's how remarkable this was.

Shakib Al Hasan to Shubman Gill, SIX runs, Shubman's around too, he reminds us down the track, reaches the pitch of the ball and lofts it well over long-on. Beautiful use of the feet, beautiful, clean strike

Kumar to Russell, 1 run, powerfully struck again, but there is a sweeper cover so only a single. Again, it means Russell is on strike
