    0.2 tight line just outside off, its pitched on that nagging good length and Smith fishes outside off. Takes the bat's outside edge and the keeper gobbles that up. Disastrous start for Tridents. 0/1
    4.1 tossed up full outside off, the flight deceives Pooran who plays that uppishly towards deep extra cover. Not timed well enough and that's a skyer! He holes out to deep extra cover. Pooran is disappointed as he walks off. Nurse strikes first ball. How often does that happen? 31/3
    1.6 good length on off stump and Williamson tries to poke at that. Oh, the horror! That's a carbon copy of the first dismissal. Takes the bat's outside edge and into Ramdin's gloves. It's that nagging line. 7/2
    5.1 good length on middle stump, Morgan steps in front and mistimes the drive. Races to gully. He calls for a single and scampers down the pitch. Pollard says no and there's a mix up! Morgan tries to scurry back but the throw from gully is accurate and over the stumps. Ramdin removes the bails and Morgan must go. 43/4
    9.2 full on off stump, sharp turn away from the batsman but the flight is enticing. Pollard cannot resist and looks to drive that over cover. Finds the outside edge instead and into first slip's pocket. DJ Bravo fumbles slightly, but takes the catch on the rebound. The captain is taking a victory lap already! 62/7
    7.2 full on off and this time Shadab brings out the googly. Sharp spin and raps Barnwell on the pads. Keeper, bowler and slip go up in unison! And the umpire concurs. Another wicket down. Barnwell looks very displeased, not sure why. Maybe some bat on that? At least the replays don't indicate that. It was slightly high though, the ball had hit the batsman's back thigh. 53/5
    8.5 full just outside off, cut to point but Shadab Khan dives to his left to stop a sure boundary. That's not more! Akeal Hosein takes off for a run and he slips in the middle, Shadab releases the ball quick and Ramdin runs Hosein out. Hara-kiri stuff 58/6
    17.2 and finally they find a way past this rather frustrating eight-wicket stand. And it's the short ball that does it. Springer opens up and looks for a slap. Throws hard hands behind it and skews it in the air. It's also a longish boundary at the sweeper cover region. Ashley Nurse waits for it and reverse-cups his hands 110/8

    19.2 yorker outside leg stump, tries to dig it out but wears it on the pad. Looks to steal a bye with the ball in front of the bowler and turn the strike over to Parnell. Bravo makes a dash for it, swoops down to pick the ball up and knocks the stumps down with Wahab well outside as he looks to make his way back 132/9

    1.6 good length just outside off, and Narine tries that pull once again. This time it takes the bat's toe end, and it's in the air! Mid on runs to his left and gobbles that. The pinch-hitter has to go 11/1
    5.5 full outside off, cut to point. And McCullum is clearly hurting. He could not cut that the way he wished to because of the pain. Takes his gloves off again and the TV commentators suggest an injury like that often comes with a fracture. He has retired hurt 41/2
    3.4 full just outside off and Munro gets a piece of that! Heaved to the leg side but he has hit it too well. The ball flies straight down deep-midwicket's throat. That was a cracking shot. A shame, for the batting side, that it was played too well. 26/2
    6.1 good length just outside off and the pace surprises Bravo. Catches the top-half of his blade and that pops up for a soft catch to point. Tridents clawing back 41/3
    9.4 and that's a soft, soft dismissal! It's a slow ball that's going down the leg side but Ramdin can't resist poking at it. Brushes his gloves as the ball goes down the leg side. The keeper ain't dropping that. Pollard is pumped! 58/4
    14.4 slaps one uppishly this time and makes much better contact but not good enough. Lots of elevation but settles straight into the hands of deep backward point. Springer sends off Bravo with his patented Champion dance 85/7
    11.3 skips down the track early. And he pays the price for the pre-meditation. Pollard drags the length back and takes it away from the batsman. Shadab swings wildly across the line and gets a discernible edge that is snaffled by the keeper 67/5
    13.2 chopped on. Wahab strikes and Knight Riders sink further. Remember, still no McCullum, so they are effectively seven down. Angles across a length ball just about enough to make the batsman hang back and open the bat face. The drift isn't as sharp. It straightens slightly late in fact and results in an inside edge into the stumps 83/6
    18.2 and he's been caught. Would you believe it? This is how the match ends. What should have effectively been a free-hit ball is not given but the batsman swings like it's a free-hit anyway and pops a catch to short third man. Teases a scoop early but sees the length and just tries to heave it over the leg side. Swings big and gets just as big of a leading edge. Springer runs to his left and holds on 120/9
    16.6 good length on leg stump, and Parnell wins the battle in the end! The zing bails light up and Parnell brings out the fist pump. It was quick and accurate. 111/8
