Faulkner to Vihari, 1 leg bye, and that's a quicker on his pads, thuds into his pads and rolls over to the leg side for a single

1.5

Faulkner to Dhawan, no run, fuller on the off stump line and he goes for a whacking drive, but it's a packed field on that side and goes to Baby

Faulkner to Dhawan, OUT, and gone again! two wickets for Faulkner, Dhawan's hit it straight to the point fielder, two down! was on a length and the batsman was looking to drive it on the up, gets the outer half of the bat and it runs to the right of the point fielder

Faulkner to Samantray, 1 run, short of length on the leg stump, pats it to the square-leg for a single

16.2

Faulkner to Sammy, OUT, wants to go over the top but is caught! that's on a length and he wants to smack it over the long-off fielder, gave himself some room too there but does not come off the middle and Hodge takes a very good catch coming in

18.1

Faulkner to Perera, 2 runs, outside the off stump and the batsman throws his bat at it, gets bit of an outside edge and it rolls over to square third-man

18.2

Faulkner to Perera, 1 run, well bowled that, very full and does not give him any room to swing his arm, the bowler gets down in time to field that one

18.3

Faulkner to Samantray, OUT, caught, at long-on, fourth one for Faulkner! was a slower one from back of the hand, it seems to have gripped and his aggressive shot it defeated by the lack of pace, does not get as much power as he would have liked and it's gone to Cooper, who takes a decent catch there

BB Samantray c Cooper b Faulkner 55 (71m 46b 6x4 1x6) SR: 119.56

18.4

Faulkner to Perera, 1 wide, outside the off stump, quite outside in fact and that's given a wide

Faulkner to Perera, 1 run, fuller outside the off and can only drill it to long-off for a single

18.6

Faulkner to Steyn, OUT, bowled him, five-for James Faulkner, his second of this IPL and against the same opponent! this was a very full ball, and on the middle stump, Steyn was looking to play it across the line and misses, the stump gets a fair hit and it's lying on the ground
