View dismissal Q de Kock c & b Tambe 42 48 33 5 1 127.27
9.6 another one, Tambe, you legend! Looped it on off stump and De Kock could not resist. Went for a drive against the turn and the ball pitched just before his flaying blade, took the inside half of it and sat safely in the hands of the bowler himself. Tambe was pushed to the floor while taking the catch, but he had it under control 71/3
View dismissal M Vijay c Watson b Faulkner 13 20 11 1 0 118.18
4.1 and produces magic straight away. Vijay looks to force the pace off a back of a good length delivery and has spooned a catch to mid-off. Would have done better to punch off the back foot, but Vijay is most comfortable pressing forward. Went through with the shot and the bat face turned on impact. Ends up a simple catch after Watson called mine 33/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen* c Smith b Tambe 14 23 15 2 0 93.33
9.3 picks out long-on! This skewed off the inside half of the bat and it's Steven Smith down there. You know the rest of it. Tossed up and he looked to take it on. His timing fails him and this time the umps don't bother about the front-foot no-ball check 69/2
View dismissal KD Karthik c Binny b Faulkner 12 28 16 0 0 75.00
15.2 holes out at deep square leg! Another crucial wicket at a crucial time for Royals. Dug in short and he chose to take it on. Hit high on the bat as he looked to pull. The man in the deep hardly had to move 95/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c Bhatia b Richardson 39 45 31 4 1 125.80
19.3 what a catch! Bhatia has picked up a sensational catch while skirting the long leg boundary! This was full and on leg stump and again sat up for Duminy to swing away. The fielder had to run to his right, had his eyes on it all the way and pouched it. But then he made sure he kept his balance. Faulkner was right beside him just in case he couldn't and needed assistance 141/5

View dismissal AM Rahane c Vijay b Parnell 12 12 10 2 0 120.00
2.5 how bout that! M Vijay has pulled off a screamer and took a leaf out of Dwayne Bravo's book and did a little jig. This was fuller and teasing him outside off, Rahane got forward and timed his cover drive quite well. Only he didn't keep it down. Vijay dives to his left and plucks out a low one 20/1

View dismissal SV Samson st †Karthik b Nadeem 34 33 28 2 2 121.42
9.6 tossed up and outside off, Samson reaches out to lash it through the covers. Misses and his momentum ruins his balance. The keeper waits on the back foot to lift and then whips off the bails. Promising innings cut short 71/2
View dismissal R Bhatia b Mohammed Shami 17 24 13 0 1 130.76
14.6 there we go, the offcutter has flattened off stump! Bhatia saw length and went for a slog, But he hasn't spotted the variation, which grips the pitch and darts back in to hit timber. Is this the start of something? 115/3
