The trio of Dhawan, Warner and Williamson set things up with the bat, and the bowlers did enough to overcome a valiant effort from Shaun Marsh to seal the win. Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were brilliant once again, registering superb figures in a game where stopping runs proved to be difficult on a belter of a pitch. At no stage during the chase did it feel like SRH were not in control,
which can be credited to Rashid's spell which ensured that the required rate shot up over 14 with six overs still left. Even at his best, Marsh just wasn't able to take the attack to the Afghanistan leggie as he just didn't pick him most of the time. He upped the ante later on but it was too much to do for a lone man. Nothing much of note from the Kings XI other than Marsh's effort, and maybe Guptill's little burst at the top. SRH register their first away win of the season.
