View dismissal RV Uthappa c Sammy b Ahmed 35 52 28 4 0 125.00
10.4 in the air again and the catch is taken this time, at long on! Robbie slapped the short ball from outside off down the ground. The ball was in the air for some time and became an easy catch for Sammy 81/1
View dismissal G Gambhir* c Mandeep Singh b Chahal 58 66 46 7 1 126.08
13.2 it's high, it's not off the middle of the bat, and he's taken at deep midwicket. GG slog-sweeps the fullish delivery from middle and leg, it goes high enough for Mandeep to take it easy in the deep 103/2
View dismissal MK Pandey run out (Kohli) 23 30 15 4 0 153.33
16.2 from Patel, so much is happening here, Pandeyji is run out at the end of it! He pushed the slower ball back to the bowler, who got a hand to it and the ball deflected towards cover. Pandey is more than halfway down the pitch but Yusuf has done a Gayle - he doesn't move - and Kohli gets an underarm direct hit at keeper's end by the time Pandey dives back 131/4
View dismissal SA Yadav c Mandeep Singh b Patel 11 14 9 2 0 122.22
16.1 not long before he targets that leg-side boundary, but he's caught in the deep! He went back in the crease to whip that short of length ball to the long-leg boundary, gets some distance but Mandeep takes it right at the boundary. Harshal roars, he has some whiskers too 131/3
View dismissal YK Pathan c Kohli b Aaron 3 18 4 0 0 75.00
19.1 that goes high and straight down the ground, Virat runs to his left from long on and takes a good catch on the move. Back of length it was, Yusuf slogged to the leg side and got a leading edge 163/5
AD Russell not out 41 22 17 6 2 241.17
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan run out (†Karthik/Aaron) 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
19.6 from Aaron, quick bouncer on the leg side, it's a wide, they go for a bye as well as Russell wants strike for the last ball and Aaron gets the ball from the keeper to hit the stumps this time. Shakib is run out 173/6

View dismissal CH Gayle run out (Pandey/†Uthappa) 96 83 56 7 7 171.42
18.2 from Morkel, another meaty blow, superb fielding in the deep from Pandey and Gayle is run out, would you believe it! He middled it for the cow corner boundary, where Pandey fell over the boundary while taking the catch but made sure he threw the ball back in just before that. The batsmen settled for one initially and realised a little late there was time for a second. Gayle is not completely fit and is slow to come back for the second. Accurate throw and he's well short, what a faux pas 171/7
View dismissal V Kohli* c †Uthappa b Morkel 13 18 15 0 1 86.66
4.5 loud appeal for a catch down leg and the finger's gone up, Kohli is gone! Good pace and bounce for the short ball as it was going down leg, Kohli pulled, got some glove before Uthappa took a good catch 29/1
View dismissal KD Karthik b Pathan 6 12 8 1 0 75.00
7.3 knocks the stumps, DK misses it completely! It pitched well outside off and DK went back in the crease to cut it late but he got too far away from it 50/2
View dismissal Mandeep Singh b Pathan 6 1 3 0 1 200.00
7.6 why, why would he do that? He just hit a six and now tries to reverse sweep the ball that pitches on middle stump. The ball is turning in and he's playing the off-stump line, loses his leg stump 56/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers st †Uthappa b Cariappa 28 14 13 3 2 215.38
10.6 he wanted another one but is beaten by the change in pace and is stumped so fast by Robbie before AB can look back. Came down the track for the ball that was outside off, it was much flatter and went under AB's horizontal bat as he missed it. Robbie does the best, Cariappa doesn't celebrate his maiden IPL wicket at all 93/4
View dismissal DJG Sammy st †Uthappa b Shakib Al Hasan 7 14 9 0 0 77.77
14.4 another stumping chance, this one goes to the third umpire no idea why! Sammy came well out of his crease, got beaten in the air and Robbie whipped the bails off in no time to stump him 119/5
View dismissal SA Abbott run out (Morkel/Shakib Al Hasan) 1 8 4 0 0 25.00
16.1 Shakib Al Hasan to Gayle, run out chance, gone to the third umpire! Gayle worked the ball towards sweeper cover in the deep, they had no choice but to go for two with the asking rate. But Abbott fell couple of inches short with that accurate throw 133/6
