16.2 Basil Thampi to KA Pollard, out, goes for it again but finds long-on. Full again, full and straight. Right in the slot. Pollard was slightly late on it, didn't quite get underneath the ball. Hits it flat and finds McCullum at long-on. Right in the hitting arc. | Apr 29, 2017
13.5 JP Faulkner to PA Patel, out, taken this time. All happening. Good length outside off, Parthiv looks for a carve down to third man but just like Rohit's dismissal, the ball bounces extra and takes the outside edge. To Karthik's left and he holds on, a sharp catch. | Apr 29, 2017
13.1 JP Faulkner to RG Sharma, out, a thin nick through and Rohit falls now. All that pressure trying to be released with deft touch. Not the worst option from Rohit, he sees third man is up so he tries to use the pace and guide the ball past him but the ball skids on, maybe gets some extra bounce and takes a thin edge through to Karthik. A discernible noise as ball passed bat. | Apr 29, 2017
3.6 Ankit Soni to PA Patel, out, And Lions strike with a run-out. The worst ball of the over, short and wide from Soni. Cut away to backward point where Faulkner stops the ball with a dive. The ball ricocheted not too far away, Faulkner picked it up and effected a direct-hit at the batsman's end. Buttler not happy as he walks off. | Apr 29, 2017
15.4 KH Pandya to IK Pathan, out, the Pandyas send their regards. Tossed up at middle stump, dips on him rapidly. He opens up to try and slog this over the midwicket boundary. Not to the pitch, gets under it too much and launches it high into the sky, it's only a few yards behind the circle where Hardik has reached briskly to snap it up | Apr 29, 2017

Brad Hogg picked New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson as the star performer of the match for his miserly returns of 2 for 7 in four overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore | Apr 29, 2017
5.5 SL Malinga to AJ Finch, out, the old offcutter works for Malinga. Back of a length outside off, Finch is leaping up as he pushes at this away from the body. It's come on slowly after sitting in the pitch and kissed the inside edge. The ball hits his thigh en route to the stumps | Apr 29, 2017
