    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 102/3, 14 overs: Nabi has bowled out and KKR have done well to not let him have a wicket. Morgan and Gill looking to do this as calmly as possible. Big chance for Gill to take his team home here.

  • 22:39 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 97/3, 13 overs: Eight runs of the over. KKR are doing well to find the boundary at least once in the over in the last few overs. 46 runs needed off 7 overs with Andre Russell still to come.

  • 22:37 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 96/3: FIFTY! Fantastic innings from the talented Shubman Gill. He’s pounced onto a lose one from Natarajan and cut it away for a boundary to bring up his half-century.

  • 22:21 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 67/3, 9 overs: Seven runs of the second Rashid Khan over and far more comfortably played by the KKR batsmen. Morgan pulls out a reverse sweep over short third man to find the fence. Is he looking to repeat his showing from the World Cup last year against Afghanistan? KKR would not mind that at all. Time for a drinks break!

  • 22:18 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 60/3, 8 overs: KKR have been pegged back a bit here by SRH’s spinners. After Rashid, Mohammad Nabi joins the attack and rolls over a tight 5 run over. Morgan meanwhile is looking to sweep as much as possible against the two spinners.

  • 22:12 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 53/3: WICKET! Rashid Khan’s come on to bowl and struck immediately. Karthik has not picked the wrong one and it’s hit is back leg – LBW and even the late DRS call can’t save him. KKR need another 90.

  • 22:08 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 52/2, 6 Overs: End of the power play and Shubman Gill is looking set for a big knock. He has for company captain Dinesh Karthik as KKR look to chase down 143 against SRH.

  • 22:07 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 51/2, 5.5 overs: Four and Four! Gill moves his front leg out of the way and makes room to slap Khaleel through the covers, and then repeats it through backward point. This young man is supremely talented and a delight to watch.

  • 22:01 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 43/2: WICKET! Just as Nitish Rana looked like he was settling in for a big knock Natarajan gets him to edge it to Wriddhiman Saha. Gone for 26 off 13. Dinesh Karthik walks in for KKR now.

  • 21:56 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 38/1, 4 overs: Khaleel bounces back well after that though could have gone for more runs if Rana had connected off the fifth ball which was going down leg. Just the couple of runs after the hat-trick of boundaries. Fantastic job by Rana and Gill since the loss of Narine’s wicket.

  • 21:55 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 36/1, 3.3 overs: Poor bowling from Khaleel as Nitish Rana picks up three consecutive boundaries. The first being a streaky one off an edge while he tried to hook the pacer and then flicked him away with superb timing for the second boundary. Khaleel then offered him width and Rana cut him away for another four, that almost carried over the fence as well. Excellent batting from the left hander.

  • 21:38 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 6-0, 1 Overs: Shubman Gill’s afforded a freebie on the legs and he puts it away through the legside masterfully. Ian Bishop loved the shot. KKR make a steady start.

  • 21:34 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 0-0, 0 Overs: Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine to open the batting with Bhuvneshwar Kumar all set to take the first over.

  • 21:21 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score SRH 142-4: SRH manage to get 9 runs off the over but a total of 142 feels sub-par on this track. KKR will be the more confident of the two sides going into the break.

  • 21:14 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: Mavi comes on to bowl his second over and it is a decent one despite Nabi getting a boundary as it goes for just the 6 runs overall. KKR will be pleased with that.

  • 21:06 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: OUT! Pandey dismissed in strange circumstances. Russell bowls a high full toss. However, it is adjudged legal because Pandey had jumped forward. He sends the ball floating and Russell goes for a catch.
