The Gujarat Lions suffered their first defeat of the season, and it was a heavy one as they were routed by 10 wickets by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Rajkot with the hosts succumbing to the chasing jinx that has struck IPL Season 9 with the 14th game out of 15 so far going the way of the side that was batting second.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and unsurprisingly opted to field. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the star of the show with the ball for the Sunrisers, taking 4-29 from his 4 overs, though three of those wickets came in the final over. The rest of the Sunrisers' bowling attack chipped in with 5 of the 6 bowlers they used getting something in the wickets column, while Moises Henriques, the only bowler to go wicketless, had excellent figures of 0-17 from his 3 overs.

There was relief more than joy on the face of Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner as the spunky Australian smashed an unbeaten 90 off just 59 balls to power his team to a long overdue first win of IPL Season 9, at the expense of the beleaguered reigning champions, the Mumbai Indians, who slumped to their third defeat of the season.

Another decisive toss decided the game, with the team chasing picking up their 11th win out of 12 games in the IPL so far. The flip of the coin went the way of the hosts, the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who gleefully accepted the opportunity to chase.

The evergreen Gautam Gambhir showed once again that he continues to have a lot to offer to anyone willing to take him on, as the veteran Indian opener smashed an unbeaten 90 from just 60 balls to guide the Kolkata Knight Riders to their second win of the season, against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are yet to get off the mark once again this year.

Gambhir's half-century was his second of the tournament this season and his 28th overall as the spunky left-hander shared another quality opening stand with Robin Uthappa (38) to guide the Kolkata Knight Riders to a win. KKR move up to 2nd in the IPL standings behind the Gujarat Lions, who have played a game less and have a better net run rate.

A 157 run second wicket partnership between AB de Villiers (82) and Virat Kohli (75) powered the Royal Challengers Bangalore to a comfortable 45 run win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in a high scoring contest at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Tuesday night.

Both star batsmen struck attractive half-centuries with De Villiers hitting 6 sixes and 7 fours en route to making 82 from just 42 balls, while Kohli dropped anchor initially before accelerating himself later in the innings, making 75 from 51 balls, as RCB rebounded from the early loss of Chris Gayle, bowled off his thigh-pad for 1 by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, to post a mammoth score of 227-4 in their 20 overs.

The Mumbai Indians completed a fairytale turnaround to their season by booking their place in the play-off game against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday with a thumping 9 wicket win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who appeared to still be reeling from their devastating late loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier this week.

The Sunrisers won the toss and elected to make first use of the pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. It proved to be a disastrous decision as they soon found themselves reeling at 7-2 with both openers Shikhar Dhawan (1) and David Warner (6) back in the pavilion. Dhawan was cleaned up by a quick yorker from Lasith Malinga while his Australian counterpart fell to a short delivery from Man of the Match Mitchell McClenaghan.

Luck was a lady tonight for the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they sneaked away with a 6-wicket win against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at a drenched Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, with a ball to spare.

As rain played havoc with the match in Hyderabad, the Sunrisers won a crucial toss, but shockingly decided to bat first. The hosts got 11 overs to shine with the bat, and they did so in some style with Moises Henriques and David Warner smashing half-centuries.

Henriques produced 4 sixes and 5 boundaries en route to a 22-ball innings of 57, while Warner was just a tad less extravagant, making 52 from 32 balls. The Sunrisers finished at 135-5, an excellent effort to give themselves every chance of winning the game.
