View dismissal CH Gayle b Sandeep Sharma 20 3 7 2 2 285.71
1.2 bowled! Gayle is down the track, but plays down the wrong line as the ball shapes away from him and beats his outside edge before crashing into off stump. 21/1
View dismissal PA Patel c †Saha b Sandeep Sharma 2 17 7 0 0 28.57
3.5 He's gone! Identical delivery, Parthiv goes for a big on-the-up drive, edges through to Saha. 26/4
View dismissal V Kohli* lbw b Sandeep Sharma 4 2 2 1 0 200.00
1.4 LBW! Billy's given it! Bit more shape into the right-hander, and Kohli is struck on the front pad. It seemed to be heading down the leg side, and he had taken a pretty big stride out. 25/2
View dismissal YV Takawale c †Saha b Johnson 0 6 7 0 0 0.00
2.6 Pokes tentatively at a length ball angled across him, and gets a thick edge through to the keeper. Takawale is out for a seven-ball duck. Umpires check for the no-ball. They seem to be looking at his back foot and the return crease. No problem. 26/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Maxwell b Dhawan 17 31 15 2 0 113.33
9.2 big wicket here, AB is gone to a short and wide ball, slaps that straight to backward point, he didn't try to power that one, guided perfectly towards the fielder, no threat in the delivery, AB has given it away 67/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Miller b Dhawan 35 49 32 3 1 109.37
14.3 bad ball, bad shot, and there's a wicket, a short ball that sits up for Yuvraj, who tries to slam it over deep midwicket, instead picks out the fielder there, Miller takes a simple catch, this is just the 15th over, and Yuvraj was the last remaining batsman 97/7
View dismissal JA Morkel b Balaji 15 14 14 0 1 107.14
13.2 length ball angling across, Albie goes for another powerful hit, thick inside edge and that crashes into the stumps, Balaji gets rid of another overseas batsman, he dismissed all four of them in the Sunrisers game 93/6
View dismissal MA Starc b Johnson 8 27 17 0 0 47.05
19.1 slower yorker, 123.3kph, was heading down the leg side, Starc had made a bit of room, but he couldn't get bat on that full one, off the pads and onto the stumps 120/8
