The over that cost Punjab the match

ESPNcricinfo staff
The 19th over of the chase, bowled by Piyush Chawla, cost Kings XI Punjab 27 runs and the match. Here's how it happened

18.1 - Chawla to Peterson, FOUR, the reverse sweep! He was in position early, friendly length ball and he swung that down to third man

18.2 - Chawla to Peterson, FOUR, this is getting closer! Chawla makes the mistake of dropping short and this was close to the Switch Hit, turns the other way and clubs it down to deep extra cover

18.3 - Chawla to Peterson, SIX, wham! What are we in for here? The conventional slog this time, tossed up on middle and leg and Peterson gets on his knee and slams that over deep midwicket

18.4 - Chawla to Peterson, 1 run, another reverse sweep! But didn't time it well, hammered it down to cover, quick single, scampered to the crease and beat the throw

18.5 - Chawla to Rayudu, SIX, 21 runs and counting! Chawla tosses it up outside off and Rayudu takes a few paces forward and lofts him crisply rows over long-off

A jolted Hussey comes over to Chawla. The bowler is, well, speechless. Peterson was under-utilised with the ball and with the bat, well, he's teaching his captain a lesson

18.6 - Chawla to Rayudu, SIX, 27 off the over! What a nightmare for Chawla! Rayudu is still merciless as he chips down the track and launches him rows over long-on, it's down to 5 off 6 balls
