View dismissal AM Rahane c †Saha b Johnson 74 82 54 6 2 137.03
17.4 slower ball slanting away from off stump, and Saha takes a good low catch to his right, after Rahane looked to slog it over the leg side and only managed a top-edge 162/4
View dismissal SR Watson* st †Saha b Patel 45 52 35 5 2 128.57
11.3 gone! Saw Watson stepping down the pitch and fired in an arm ball that slid between bat and pad, and Saha did brilliantly there, in such an understated way, to collect calmly outside leg stump and whip off the bails 95/1
View dismissal DJ Hooda b Shivam Sharma 19 16 9 1 2 211.11
14.6 bowled him, or is that bowled himself? Stretched across the stumps a long way to play the lap sweep to the full ball on leg stump, didn't make any contact 136/2
View dismissal SPD Smith c Maxwell b Patel 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
15.3 out first ball! It was a long-hop, or a longish-hop at any rate, and Smith pulls it straight down the throat of deep midwicket 137/3
View dismissal KK Nair c Patel b Anureet Singh 25 20 13 2 1 192.30
19.1 and he strikes. Very full on middle and leg. Nair looks to hoick it away over the leg side, doesn't really get hold of it, picks out Axar at deep square leg 175/6
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Maxwell b Sandeep Sharma 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
18.1 got him! That was cleanly struck by Faulkner, clearing his front leg and hitting the full middle-stump ball down the ground, but didn't get enough elevation to clear long-on. Maxwell timed his jump perfectly to catch it two-handed, over his head 166/5

  Kings XI Punjab innings (target: 192 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal M Vijay run out (Tewatia) 21 29 18 0 2 116.66
6.2 Tewatia to Marsh, short outside off, and that's a convoluted way for a bad ball to get a wicket. It stopped on the pitch a bit, and Marsh, shaping to cut, ended up flat-batting it back to Tewatia, who fielded it and turned around in a flash to flick the ball at the stumps, too quick for Vijay, who had backed up too far, to return to his crease. 42/2
View dismissal V Sehwag* run out (Smith) 1 9 4 0 0 25.00
1.6 Binny to Vijay, fullish outside off, checked drive to mid-off. They go for the single, and Smith goes for the keeper's end and hits the stumps direct. Royals are already celebrating, but it's gone to the third umpire. You can see why. Sehwag is stretching but he's well short of the crease. Sharp thinking from Smith, and a brilliant flat throw. Sehwag started running a touch too late, and was watching the fielder as he ran. 3/1
View dismissal SE Marsh c Rahane b Tambe 65 53 40 5 3 162.50
14.3 loopy googly, and that's produced the breakthrough. Nice line from Tambe, challenged Marsh to hit him against the turn, and he top-edged the attempted slog-sweep high in the air, drops into the waiting hands of Rahane at long-on 117/4
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Smith b Tewatia 1 9 6 0 0 16.66
8.4 goes for the slog-sweep now and he's holed out to deep midwicket. Just a bit of turn and bounce from middle and leg and it produces the top edge 59/3
View dismissal DA Miller c Binny b Hooda 54 44 30 1 5 180.00
17.5 full and wide outside off, and Miller gets under it and slices it straight into sweeper cover's hands. Expensive over, but this could be the wicket that turns it Royals' way. 166/6
View dismissal WP Saha b Morris 19 14 8 4 0 237.50
16.6 bowled him! That was full and straight, and Saha was trying to be too cute there. Walked across his stumps, looked for the scoop over short fine leg, and it was far too full for that shot 152/5
