Manan Vohra defied a pitch of inconsistent pace and bounce and a situation stacked against his team to produce one of the IPL's great backs-to-the-walls innings. His 95 off 50 balls revived a floundering chase, taking Kings XI Punjab to within 15 runs of victory, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar would ensure he wouldn't be able to finish the match, taking two wickets in the 19th over to finish with 5 for 19.

In the end, neither of them would be involved in what became the nerviest finish of the season. Eleven off six balls usually favours the chasing side, but seldom is a chasing side nine down at that stage. Siddarth Kaul conceded four off the first two legal balls, slipping in two wides, but pulled himself together to send down the perfect yorker with six needed off three. Ishant Sharma couldn't put bat to it, and Sunrisers just about held on to their undefeated home record this season.
