SRH appeared to have the game covered on several occasions. First when Bhuvaneshwar Kumar returned figures of 3 for 20 in his four choking the KKR total to a chaseable 172. Then Warner took them to 45 without losing a wicket. With Yuvraj to come, it seemed this game would once again follow the trend this season of the team batting second winning the game. SRH however had different plans losing 6 wickets for 80 odd to catapult KKR to the top of the IPL table.
