Three consecutive defeats will worry HYD but they can live past it, knowing that they've two shots at the final. The one remaining play-off spot will be sealed tomorrow. Mumbai win and they'd ride into the play-offs, courtesy that superlative NRAJ. But it's not over until the last game's done. Join us for the drama. Will see you on the other side of the night, ta-ta!

Lynn - Player of the Match: "It's a great feeling. We're building momentum nicely, so let's see what happens. The wickets in BBL are a bit quicker, so I have to adapt here. I am finding my touch. Sunil is blasting it at the other end, so we've two blokes doing that now. The main thing is to build partnerships. It's good fun (when Sunil is batting). He can take the momentum away from the other team. He keeps it nice and simple, and that seems to be working for him. Couple of wins on the board, and we're not going to change the way we play."

Karthik: "I think all eight teams strive for the play-off spots, so happy to reach there. Things are slowly setlling down. Just the way we are playing shows good character. I'd like to think that (we're peaking at the right time)."

Robin Uthappa: "Well, we didn't think about losing. We did fantastically well with the ball after they were 144-odd in 14 overs. To pull them back to 172 was sensational effort by our bowlers. We have been batting pretty well. I am pretty happy to have gotten a string of scores - I want more getting into the Playoffs. Happy with the way I batted today - playing the sheet anchor's role to Lynny. We are hoping that Punjab does well tomorrow. Let's see what happens."

Williamson: "We were on target for more runs, wicket played really well. We should have scored around the 200-run mark but credit goes to KOL for dragging us back. Lot of credit goes to the the boys in the field. It doesn't matter what happens now, we need to come out and play with freedom in the playoffs. Guys are looking forward to that but having said that we wanted to win this game. We have been fraction off the mark in the matches we have lost. I think we should have got more with the bat, we needed one more partnership but they bowled well in the death. If the batting comes off we will get more with the bat. We have adapted really well to the new surfaces. There are positives even in the losses too. There are not a lot of bad stuff just a few adjustments."

D Karthik in successful run chases this T20 League:
35(29)*vs BLR
42(23)* vs RAJ
23(10) vs BLR - out penultimate over
45(18)*vs CHN
41(31)*vs RAJ
26(22)*vs HYD

11:44pm local: That blistering start provided by Dhawan and Goswami comes down to nothing. Not that HYD were never in the game, as 60/0 in the powerplay will suggest, but Dhawan and Williamson's wicket pared them back. A four-wicket last over meant they missed out on the slog overs, and then Narine unsettled them at the top, ensuring in the process that the momentum stays on KOL's side. Lynn hit his stride with a well-compiled 55 and Uthappa's 45 all but sailed them through. Has to be mentioned that Rashid had dropped the latter off his own bowling on 11.

Brathwaite to Karthik, 1 run, KOL make it to the play-offs! DK hits the winning runs, working this full toss to mid-on

We can't have more drama here. We don't deserve.

Brathwaite to Karthik, no run, now a dot ball. Hah, Karthik's missed this fullish one outside off. Touch late on it, you can say

Shubman Gill, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Gill was destined to come out and bat, it seems

Brathwaite to Nitish Rana, out Caught by Bhuvneshwar!! Now this finds the fielder. More like a hoick-pull that Nitish Rana's fallen to. Takes the short ball on, swivels into an attempted glory hit and succumbs to the placement of the fielder at fine leg. Nitish Rana c Bhuvneshwar b Brathwaite 7(5) [4s-1]

Brathwaite to Nitish Rana, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Brathwaite to Nitish Rana, FOUR, tries to bowl very full and wide from round the wicket but Nitish Rana's reached out to it. Throws his hands, slices it away, and it's been hit with power. Skittles away, beating Sandeep's dive. Scores level

Carlos Brathwaite [2.0-0-16-1] is back into the attack

Not really a match worthy of a last-over finish but here we are, trying to make sense of this and life at the same time. Umm, okay, back to cricket. Williamson has a chat with Brathwaite, who's bowling this over. 5 to win

Bhuvneshwar to Karthik, no run, inswinging low full toss that's been squirted out straight to backward point. No run there
Bhuvneshwar to Nitish Rana, 1 run, makes room and goes with BK's angle from over the wicket to the left-hander. Carves a single over cover-point. 5 off 7
Bhuvneshwar to Karthik, 1 run, slow again, and this time DK connects. Dragged off the under-edge to deep mid-wicket. KOL a maximum away
Bhuvneshwar to Karthik, no run, doesn't read the slow ball. Banged in on a back of a length, and it doesn't quite bounce enough to connect to Karthik's premeditated pull
Bhuvneshwar to Karthik, 2 runs, on the move across his stumps, is Karthik. Works that to long-on and pinches a couple

Strike back with Karthik. Expect a hurricane finish? 9 off 11.

Bhuvneshwar to Nitish Rana, 1 run, slow low full toss on leg-stump from Bhuvneshwar first up, which is ticked to fine leg

Bhuvneshwar Kumar [3.0-0-28-0] is back into the attack

10 needed off 2 overs. And I'm out of filler freeformsbetween the overs

S Kaul to Nitish Rana, 1 run, doesn't quite get the yorker right to the left-hander but the low full toss does the job from over the wicket. Glided to third man. 2/26 for Kaul
S Kaul to Karthik, 1 run, knuckle ball on a length, punched through covers

12 needed by the way

S Kaul to Karthik, wide, slow but he's went past the off-side tramline. Karthik doesn't even try

Nitish Rana, left handed bat, comes to the crease

S Kaul to A Russell, out Caught by Manish Pandey!! Russell has been baited here. All he got until now was a barrage of incoming short balls, so he was going to want to take full toll of this one. Slogs across, totally misreading the slower delivery and offering a steepler to long-on. Manish had to come in a few paces but he was right under the ball. Brilliantly taken. A Russell c Manish Pandey b S Kaul 4(4) [4s-1]

S Kaul to A Russell, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

S Kaul to A Russell, FOUR, that top-edge to fine leg has arrived, beaten Sandeep Sharma and run away for a boundary. Sandeep, running to his right, leapt in front, went two-handed but the ball just slid through, deflecting to the ropes. 13 needed, only
S Kaul to A Russell, no run, short ball. A Russell just opens his stance and tries to pull. Never in position. First Brathwaite, and now Kaul -- they are bowling short at him

A new helmet for Russell

S Kaul to Karthik, 1 run, misfield at extra cover, so this drive -- played off a slower delivery -- finds a single to long-off

Siddarth Kaul [3.0-0-18-1] is back into the attack

18 off 3 overs. It's time to switch sides, you HYD fans.

Most runs scored off Rashid Khan in T20 League:
58 off 31 R Uthappa
48 off 29 Shreyas Iyer
44 off 29 R Pant (One dismissal)
43 off 18 C Gayle
39 off 17 M Vohra
38 off 25 A Rayudu

Brathwaite to A Russell, no run, that's rotational dynamics put to waste. He doesn't connect. Stays leg-side and swats his bat around, hoping to connect the pull (and secretly hoping for the top-edge to fly over fine leg)
Brathwaite to Karthik, 1 run, low full toss clipped to long-on. 18 off 19
Brathwaite to Karthik, FOUR, slower delivery sitting up, and the perils of having DK at the death. Hits the pull flat over the mid-wicket region. It's racing away.. it's a four!
Brathwaite to Karthik, wide, that's full but sprayed down leg

Andre Russell, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Brathwaite to Uthappa, out Caught by Goswami!! Brathwaite is riding a horse in celebration. Or something like that. He's undone Uthappa with a short ball. Weight not quite back, the bounce getting big on the batsman, and we have a top-edge, that the keeper runs around and collects it near say leg gully. Uthappa c Goswami b Brathwaite 45(34) [4s-3 6s-2]

Brathwaite to Uthappa, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
