Warne to Gilchrist, FOUR, carnage continues... short again, on the pads, flicked between square leg and midwicket

3.4

Warne to Gilchrist, 1 run, mis-fielded this time! gently tapped back to Warne's left, he doesn't collect cleanly, and they steal the single

Warne to Valthaty, 2 runs, decent delivery again, but cut away from back of a length, and takes a couple to wide to sweeper-cover

9.1

Warne to Marsh, 1 run, chipped towards deep midwicket again, gets a single

9.3

Warne to Valthaty, no run, respects the respectable legbreak, defending it to cover

9.4

Warne to Valthaty, OUT, the have broken the code! They have dismissed Valthaty! No. 50 in IPL for Warner. And what revs on this one. Valthaty comes down the track looking for another six, but the dip leaves him ever so short of the pitch of the ball, and he hits this off the lower part of the bat. Tait collects the mis-hit at long-off

PC Valthaty c Tait b Warne 46 (31b 4x4 3x6) SR: 148.38

Kings XI Punjab 106/2   SK Warne 3-0-29-1

13.1

Warne to Karthik, no run, shapes up for the slog sweep, but then sees it dip viciously and ends up cutting it straight to point

13.2

Warne to Karthik, 1 run, on the pads, helped away for a single

13.3

Warne to Marsh, SIX, that's the first uncultured shot Marsh has played all night. And it's might effective too. Slog-swept way into the stands

13.4

Warne to Marsh, SIX, 50 off 29 deliveries! And another slog-sweep. Much straighter this time, but it defies gravity just as long-on thinks he might have a chance

13.5

Warne to Marsh, 2 runs, shorter, gets a couple to deep midwicket

13.6

Warne to Marsh, SIX, that's not how you treat a legend, not one who might have played with your father back in the day... Third six in the over, via another slog sweep. Warne is quiet now. Liz Hurley is watching from the stands

Kings XI Punjab 153/2   SK Warne 4-0-50-1
